They were seen by the Rocky statue and spotted at a hotel in the area.

According to PWInsider.com, they flew into the city last night.
Of course, this will naturally lead to speculation on The Undertaker making his in-ring return at the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match, especially after he appeared on Raw 25 on Monday. However, there is also the possibility of McCool making her own return to the ring in the first-ever 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match. According to PWInsider.com, WWE officials reached out to McCool on competing in the event. In this tweet from last month, she at least seems interested in the idea.
WOW!!! @WWE women continue to get much deserved opportunities to SHINE! The news of the 1st ever Women’s Royal Rumble match January 28th makes my heart happy! Just sayin’…..my birthday is Jan 25th-what a FLAWLESS gift that’d be! Congrats ladies! 💪🏼

It should be noted, however, that The Undertaker was backstage at SummerSlam and the Survivor Series and did not appear on camera.
