Women's Royal Rumble Match

During tonight’s episode of RAW from Miami, RAW GM Kurt Angle announced that the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match at the Royal Rumble PPV on January 28 in Philadelphia will be a 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match, much like the Men’s Rumble Match normally is.

It will also include the same rules as the Men’s Rumble Match, most notably the 2-minute intervals in-between entrants and elimination occurring by going over the top rope.

Following RAW tonight, the following names are set for the Women’s Royal Rumble Match.

* Asuka
* Naomi
* Sasha Banks
* Bayley
* Paige
* Mandy Rose
* Sonya Deville
* Natalya
* Ruby Riott


  1. Two rumbles, thirty entrants each, two minutes between entrances…
    Gonna be a long night.
    They should have at least pulled it down to 90 seconds between entrants. That has worked in the past.

  2. We already know there are 10 women on RAW and 9 on SD not counting the 2 champs, so it’s about adding 11 participants. Some from NXT , some legends and oh how about Ronda Rousey?!!! yes please

  3. Why does every participant think they are going to be #1? “I’m going to toss out 29 women.” What if you get # 26, and you only have to eliminate 5 or 6 women to win. I miss the days of the Million Dollar Man buying high numbers…

  4. For sure, they’re gonna have to add some legends or one-shot appearences to fill the rest of those slots. I’m hoping to see Gail Kim, Serena Deeb, and Jade… all great workers (and better than most of the current WWE roster!)

  5. They just did the Mae Young Classic, so it’s not like they’re in short supply of women they can contact to fill slots to total 30.

  6. Girls battle royals always suck, they can’t even go over the top rope, this is going to be a horrendous train wreck! I feel sorry for whoever has to agent this super cluster.!
