We knew there would be surprise entrants in the Royal Rumble match at tonight's (Sun., Jan. 27, 2013) big pay-per-view event at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona, but we didn't know who all would show up to the party to try to earn their shot at a WWE championship at WrestleMania 29.

We didn't have to wait long to get the first one -- Chris Jericho.

Indeed, Dolph Ziggler chose to enter at number one and he was joined by Jericho at number two, getting a massive pop from fans in the arena. This was a really well kept secret and there's no telling if this is a one-off appearance for the typical Rumble surprise pop or if he's re-signed with the company for WrestleMania season but it made for a great moment at tonight's show.

We'll have to stay tuned.
