Women's Royal Rumble match

During tonight’s episode of WWE RAW, a first ever Women’s Royal Rumble match was announced for the Royal Rumble PPV on January 28 in Philadelphia.

RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon made the announcement to close the show.

Here is an excerpt from Mike Tedesco’s recap on Monday night.

“Stephanie McMahon’s music hits, and everyone stops brawling. McMahon gets in the ring and says a revolution started three years ago with the women in the ring, the women on Smackdown Live, and every woman who competed before, including The Fabulous Moolah and The Great Mae Young. They’ve turned it into an evolution and they’ve had a women’s Hell in a Cell, TLC, and a match in the Middle East for the first time ever. That’s not enough, though. How about they make history once again? On January 28, the Road to WrestleMania kicks off in Philadelphia, and we’ll have the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble match. McMahon tells the crowd to do a “YES” chant, and the crowd obliges.”

  1. Y’know what? If they’re gonna do this and they want people to take it seriously, I have the following piece of advice: Commit. What do I mean by that? I mean the winner of this match challenges Charlotte for the title in the MAIN EVENT at Wrestlemania. Vince can have Roman vs Brock II if he wants it so bad, but the winner of this match should get the last match on the card, not Roman. Roman does not need the main event this year. He’s had three of them already. Let somebody else have a turn this year.

  2. know the equality factor is the big reason for this Women’s Rumble match in 2018, but do all the women have to go over the top rope as well? Because, if so, fuc* this match. We’ve seen total clusterfuc*s ensue when they try to have women do the EXACT same things men do in the ring. That being said, I don’t think anyone would oppose women just having to go out of the ring as opposed to over the top rope.
