As we bring in the new year, the pro-wrestling world is surrounded with talk about the ‘Women’s Revolution’ in WWE reaching another step by holding its first ever Women’s Royal Rumble!

We finally got confirmation that 30 women will be taking part in the Rumble, leaving our minds to start all the fantasy booking of all the amazing women athletes that we’d love to see getting involved. The current WWE roster has 19 active women’s wrestlers NOT including the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champions Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair. So far, Asuka, Bayley, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Mickie James, Nia Jax, Sasha Banks, all three factions of Absolution, the Riott Squad and the Welcoming Committee confirmed their places in the Rumble, meaning that there are still 17 positions left.

A little quick maths means that once Alicia Fox and Dana Brooke inevitably get added to the match, then that means there are 11 juicy spots open!

Over the last few years, the Royal Rumble has become known for its unpredictability: unpredictable winners, unpredictable eliminations and most importantly, unpredictable entrants. As soon as this match was announced, our brains started whirring with excitement – not just for the match itself, but we all know that the possibilities are endless.

Now, while rumours are rife about a certain Ronda Rousey taking part in this match, we’ve omitted her for this list, because we know loads of other women that we want to take the other spots! Join us as we review the potential surprises that we would love to see take part in this history making event!

Click below to see what Rumble surprises we hope to see!

  • Tina

    Yes Queen Eve Torres. One of the first girls who gave me a clear favorite for my generation along with AJ and Maryse. Her lumberjill match with Natalya was so cool for me to watch back then.

    I would love to hear Melina’s ICONIC theme one more time.

  • Damn!
    • Bad and Bossy

      Tbh

    • Trishlita

      Has she wrestled since her torn acl??

      • Dean

        On Lilian’s podcast, she stated she was almost fully healed. She also stated she’s not sure if she should return fulltime or retire.

        • Trishlita

          Oh wow really!! :(

      • Jorge Hernandez Moran

        She was wrestling in SouthSide but dislocated her knee

    • Jaded

      Everything about her was iconic. From theme to her paparazzi’s and her entrance. WWE and most of the current women (except Naomi) might pay her dust, but there is no denying her impact, from Charlotte’s split to Sasha’s knee drop, Melina was legendary.

    • Shan

      I’d probably cry if her music hit.

  • Women’s Revolution

    Michelle McCool ???You’re Not Enough for Me

    • Like Mike

      Only if Layla is there too

      • Malcolm James

        I don’t think Life Alert agents will allowed her?

        • Like Mike

          I’mma need you and your shade to sit the f down ??

    • Jaded

      As long as she’s not coming to bury the current breed of women like she buried the one’s from her era

      • I dont really feel like she buried anyone, only competitors she really had was Melina, Beth & Mickie & with them it was a back & forth

      • jxs_

        SCRMMMM #truth

  • Dean

    According to SquaredCirclesirens.com, Molly Holly has been confirmed for the Rumble, Michelle McCool has been contacted and Paige hasn’t been cleared yet and might miss the Rumble leaving one more spot open for another surprise entry.

    • Juan

      That site reminds me of how Diva-Dirt used to be. My how time changes everything.

    • Jaded

      Poor Paige, this was always her dream to be at the rumble. I hope they don’t stop her push .

      • Marshy

        While her other two members of Absolution gets to participate in the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble and if she doesn’t participate that it will devastate her, cause she has to wait until next year if they should ever have it again.

    • Jose Antonio Atienza Lat

      So 19 Main Roster (minus Paige if she is still injured)
      +
      (contacted)
      Lita
      Beth Phoenix
      Kelly Kelly
      Michelle McCool
      Molly Holly

      (NXT)
      Nikki Cross
      Peyton Royce
      Billie Kay
      Kairi Sane
      Shayna

      possibly Rousey, Trish, Kaitlyn

  • Brittany Smith

    The list was great loved them all

  • Kendra

    it doesn’t make any sense to have any of the NXT women in the royal rumble just have some of the women from the past in the royal rumble with the main roster women

  • THOMAS

    wwe always does gail dirty but gail would be a dream come true.

  • Kendra

    I don’t wanna see Logan the build a bear aka ms wood chop or Sonja, every time Sonja comes out she looks like a party city ad for MMA costumes .I don’t mind the bella twins but as soon as they get in the ring, throw them out lol

    • Tina

      Party city ahhhhh??

  • Donny Donny ?

    It’d be a dream for Matt Striker and his bulge to commentate the Rumble. I remember him always putting over the women on commentary during the Diva days and giving little backstory tidbits here and there to spice the matches up a bit. He was a great commentator.

    • ?too litty?

      Matt Striker is such a daddy

      • Gerg

        I wish I had him as a teacher. Shoo I’d take his class seriously lol

        • ?too litty?

          He could teach me a thing or two.?

      • Donny Donny ?

        He’s so geeky looking, but that just makes him more attractive. ?

        • ?too litty?

          FAXXXXX! LIKE EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A SUGAR DADDY…. MATT COULD STILL GET IT!

        • Womensor

          I don’t see his bulge. He has a big one?

    • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

      Daddy Striker can teach me any time.

      • Womensor

        Give me all your Instagram to talk about his bulge hahaha mine Soriano.93

        • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

          Follow me sisters! @ItzNnathan

    • Jaded

      No one is better and more credible than jim Ross, he’ll put the woman over, and WWE contacting him will prove they take the rumble seriously.

      • Donny Donny ?

        He’d be great on commentary as well. He did well on the MYC.

      • Sara morgan

        Abbott Laboratories fired Rosemary Berry in Lexington but Rosemary now makes $18510 working with Alliance Holdings from home
        ———— CashSkillsJobSeeThis

    • Shan

      He’s killing it over on Lusha Underground … if that’s still a thing.

      • MK126

        It is. They just got green lit for season 4

        • Shan

          Yea!!! They’re way too entertaining to just die out.

    • morebeefplease

      Lol he once said that Mickie James’s hat smelled like bacon bits.

    • Charlie Weston

      Matt Striker? Keep it. How is he even being discussed as a commentator for a women’s rumble when one of the most blatantly sexist commentary moments (short of all things Jerry Lawler) came from him during a woman’s participation in the Rumble. Seriously, does nobody else remember Beth Phoenix double crossing The Great Khali out of the rumble while he repeatedly shrieked “NEVER TRUST A WOMAN” at the top of his lungs? Nope. Count me out.

      • IconicTrio

        Good god man. Did you show the same anger towards the degradation od Ellsworth simply because of his odd physical appearance and being a “useless male”?

      • Donny Donny ?

        You’re reaching bro.

    • Darren C. #Savees

      Preach, I loved Matt Striker

  • Dana Del Rey

    Well, idk about you guys but I see WWE hiring Emma back soon. Remember when the Bellas left WWE and then they came back like 1 year later

    • Like Mike

      Yeah but the Bellas left on their own terms Emma was released by the company so they can’t be compared.

    • Mark?

      Keep it. I was happy to see boring and stale Emma released.

      • jcott3

        Emma was doomed the minute she was called up to the main roster and got put with Santino.

  • BC

    I read they contacted Molly Holly and she agreed to it. Michelle McCool is in talks too!

    Hope it’s true because I love them. The crowd would be dead though unless it’s someone like Trish/Lita though let’s be real lol. ?

    • Alex

      Crowd would pop for Michelle, but they wouldn’t for Molly Holly.

      • Juan

        Nah. Michelle was the least over of the main women pushed in her era. Not even feuding with the uber popular Mickie/Melina got her over.

        She was a damn good wrestler though!

        • Alex

          I honestly think any of the women that were prominent in the divas era would get a good pop whether they deserved one or not simply because they bring nostalgia to many of the young adults today who were kids back then. Kelly Kelly, Eve Torres, Melina, Beth Phoenix, Michelle, even Layla would all probably get good reactions. Everyone bar Jillian. LOL

      • Tina Olsen

        The audience never cared for Michelle McCool. I think they would be more excited to see Molly holly. Molly was extremely popularly her first 2 years with the company.

        • Typical Heel

          The crowd would NOT remember Molly lol she was around when i was a little kid I’m 22 now, so the even younger fans would have no clue who she is, i feel like Michelle would get a bigger pop than her being a more recent face and accomplishing more than Molly, remember when the Bellas 1st left they were irrelevant asf, but when they returned weigh that segment with Kaitlyn they got a pop bc ppl remembered them, RECENT absences makes the WWE fans hearts grow fonder, so Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix, Eve, Laycool, Aj, Kharma, Kaitlyn, would be the best pops for the women not the golden era or attitude era women (besides Trish and Lita)

          • Michelle not getting a pop unless her husband is coming down to the ring with her. ?

          • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

            I get the feeling they care a lot about the network subscribers. Most of them remember everyone since they can go back and look at the archives. That’s why anyone that was big in the past making a return would work.

        • Bad and Bossy

          ??????

      • John Finnie

        They didnt for Mickie im bot sure they would for michelle either BUT the women will show molly holly respect ie Sasha Bayley Charlotte Beth maybe Mickie Lita please

      • Sha95

        I think y’all are underestimating the fans of WWE. They will be in front of a smart crowd who will be aware of all these women from different eras..

      • jcott3

        Too true. Molly’s been gone so long and has kept a very low profile since she left WWE.

        • Alex

          Yep. The only females that would get a pop pre Divas era if they returned today are Trish, Lita and possibly Victoria. All the rest like Molly Holly, Ivory, Jazz, Jacqueline etc all fall into that group that just aren’t remembered well enough like the other three.

      • That’s not gonna happen.

      • Jose Antonio Atienza Lat

        Ivory perhaps since HOF bound this year??

  • Trishlita

    I don’t think Paige is going to be apart of it because her injury is thought to be worse :( this is such a shame I predicted asuka and Paige as the final two.

  • Alex

    I’d love Victoria back, but her return would only be epic if she was allowed to use her t.a.t.u entrance theme.

    • Dean

      I thought she might have been blacklisted after her private photos were released. I recall reading an article they wouldn’t allow her backstage shortly after those were leaked.

      • Tina Olsen

        What photos?

      • Jonny

        I don’t think they can use that argument any more seeing as Paige is back and getting a huge push.

    • MK126

      I’d probably scream if YES I LOST MY MINNNNNNNDDDDD plays in the arena

  • Troy Smith

    Gail still works for Impact wrestling. She retired as a wrestler but she works in a backstage role for them still.

  • Bad and Bossy

    I’m fine with Trish, Lita and AJ Lee that’s all I want

    • Alex

      More chance of me becoming a superstar than WWE letting AJ Lee anywhere near the building let alone the ring.

  • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

    I know I’m in the minority here but I would really love if Kelly Kelly would make an appearance, even it it’s just for one night. She wasn’t the best in the ring, or mic, but the girl could sell and she was one of the most over divas of HER time.

    And plus like the list said, she’s one of the few “Diva” Era stars who hasn’t returned.

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      I agree entirely! :)

    • HouseOfMaryse

      I agree. She wasn’t the best but she made me want to root for her, she was really really over back then it was crazy.

      • Jaded

        To be honest she really wasn’t that over.
        No other person was getting reactions so it looked like she was over, compare her reaction to the divas of the golden era or Sasha, Becky, Charlotte, Naomi, bayley and you’ll see she wasn’t that over.

        • Typical Heel

          Right, compared to today’s times, Kelly Kelly was irrelevant asf

    • Mark?

      “The girl could sell.” Lol where tho? I wouldn’t mind seeing her in the Rumble but she was even hesitant to take a back bump. And she couldn’t jump for Beth’s Glam Slam at all.

      • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

        I’m not arguing with a troll.

        Get a life outside the internet sis instead of trying to find an arguement ?

        • Mark?

          I’m the troll but you’re the one who thinks Kelly can sell ? Girl couldn’t even take the Bella Buster properly

    • jcott3

      I remember someone once saying Kelly couldn’t wrestle or talk, but she knew how to market herself.

    • Alex

      The smarks may hate her, but the casuals young and old always loved her. She’d get a big pop.

    • KatyaMenelli

      screaming and laying idle on the ground, rolling your knees isn’t selling. If Kelly can sell, Eva can wrestle.

  • FlawlessMickie ?

    As far as women legends go… i’d love if Trish Lita Jackie Allundra or Beth made appearances. Also Molly, Ivory (but queen is old no shade), Kong, and Victoria. There’s more but I tried to only pick some what realistically.

    • Dean

      Ivory coming out as the RTC gimmick and their theme would get a strong reaction from the crowd. Especially if she comes out after someone like a returning Kelly Kelly or Nikki Bella and tries to censor the cleavage.

  • Marshy

    With this past Monday on Raw when Kurt Angle was on the phone that it could have been any past women of the WWE whether they are black sheep of the women’s division or not.

    • John Finnie

      Molly holly or michelle it is texas & mollys confirmed & Michelle has been asked

  • Dean

    Candice LeRae was signed. Not only can I see her representing MYC in the Royal Rumble, I expect her to be helping her hubby in his match at Takeover by neutralizing Zelina Vega… Zelinga would be a fun entry in the Rumble too.

    Trish Stratus, Melina, AJ Lee, Kharma and/or Layla appearing would be make my night!

  • Juan

    The majority of the women I want to return are listed in the “Shocker” category! Melina and Gail would be truly shocking!! Still hoping for Melina!! Same with Aj Lee and Victoria.

    Please no Kelly, Eve, or Kaitlyn! There era was horrendous and they were meh wrestlers.

  • ???
    • John Finnie

      Still rumour till wwe confirm…. even Winc said rumour

  • Royalty ?

    Alicia is on the poster for the royal rumble and spoiler alert Michelle McCool and Molly Holly are joining in as well.

  • Michael

    Doesn’t this site have an editor anymore? The amount of mistakes, factual and grammatical, in this article is genuinely ridiculous.

    Anyway. I think Kaitlyn would be a good choice for a return, just because powerhouses are great in Rumble matches and there are only a few already announced. And, purely for my childhood self, I’d love to see Lita again.

    • Charlie Weston

      ????

    • Maybe you should shoot the site’s writers an email about the errors that are bothering you.

      • Michael

        Maybe readers shouldn’t be responsible for correcting mistakes in the content they consume?

  • Jonny

    If they don’t get Victoria in this match I will be so mad!! She’s still active and still looks absolutely incredible. Times like this too make me wish Jazz wasn’t suing the ‘E! An original ECW superstar in the Women’s Rumble. Finger’s crossed!!

    Gail Kim would be awesome, a REAL retirement moment and recognition from the WWE of her talent. Like closure? Imagine a Gail/Kharma (another I’d love to see appear) face off in the Rumble.

    • Dean

      I think there might be some heat between WWE and Jazz because of a pending lawsuit.

      Gail Kim and AJ Lee would be the biggest shockers if they were to come out. Gail is definitely out of the question (which sucks greatly) but I’m still holding out hope for AJ!

    • Del Rey

      That would be epic for the several reasons, one of them being that Gail Kim won her first ever Women’s Championship in a battle royale, she got injured and return ed in one and retired from WWE by eliminating herself in her final match with them. It would be ironic and even better if her and Foxy went at it as was planned in her elimination.

      I figured Molly would return, can’t wait! And now I need Lita and Trish! Michelle McCool also sounds great! And Melina deerves it, she was a hell.of a worker! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/67f27ff47589266aadb34a2039696ffc886a4349b0f4a0bf308e7a5fc5bc32e2.gif

  • John Finnie

    Rumour is Molly.Holly has agreed to be in the RR & Michelle McCool has been asked but not confirmed if she is appearing Layla & the Duo have got to be their with a slap to the bellas on the outside lol lita please lita over trish just this once wwe

    • Dean

      If there were ever really plans to debut a Women’s Tag Division, doing something to hint at that during the Rumble would be a fun tease. Just imagine Iconic, Bellas, Laycool and Trish/Lita having a face off in some shape or form.

      • John Finnie

        The next night….. the real womens champ steph says how about history at WM ladies?? We have enough tag teams so we will have team beatie vs Bellas vs Iconic duo vs ??? @ WM its Mickie & Melina. Team bestie wins then drops them about.5.weeks later to the iconic duo then melina & Mickie triple threat with Askua at Backlash or the Raw or after WM

  • Mark?

    The only way I’d want Trish in the Rumble is if she turns heel, cheats and wins. Otherwise I don’t want her ruining her legacy by losing to anyone other then Lita. Sorry not sorry. It would be like Austin coming back to get eliminated/lose to someone like Samoa Joe or whatever.

  • Mark?

    OMG I would die if the girls are fighting in the ring and then BAM… Melina’s theme music hits! Sasha looks at the rampway stunned and shocked. Melina runs down and Sasha and Melina battle it out, exchanging right hands! YAS.

  • Del Rey

    My personal assessment of who is going to for sure be a lock to enter are
    – Molly Holly
    – Lita
    – Trish Stratus
    – Alundra Blayze

    If Emma, McCool, and Beth come in I that would be awesome. I would love to see Gail Kim in It! Melina is another which I could easily see come back to a huge pop.

    My guess is that Lita and Trish involvement will be, heels attacking Trish and then Lita making the save. They clean house for a while until.its just the two of them so they go at it. Then they’re interrupted by someone big so they put their differences aside and team up again. Eventually Trish outsmarts Lita and eliminates her in a sneaky heel Trish fashion! Then Trish gets eliminated by Mickie James or someone else. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6ac0a5b47f7e26a396b00acaaeeb94f99544178779981abb87207156651cb8fa.gif

    • Mark?

      Yeah, have Trish Stratus and Lita, the GOATS, go out before current jobber Mickie James. Why not just have The Rock return at the Rumble this year and have Zack Ryder eliminate him? #DivaDirtMindset

      • Del Rey

        I get it, I love Trish too, but it’s a Royal Rumble! Not a one on one match or a continuous storyline. It represents all of the hard working female superstars, past and present and they can’t all win. They’re all awesome, maybe in this case some more than others, but the fact that they’ll be involved in the first ever Women’s Rumble is winning enough, another feather in their caps to their already legendary status. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b6877c0fa7d489ab1d70cefa60257749b690af8048206cebec3ba1ad2bb74c62.gif

  • Hangga

    As much as i love Trish and Lita i dont want them to be in RR unless either one of them walks out as winner. As for Iconic duo i can see they make their debut at RR since they didnt appear at last nxt tapings

    • Mark?

      Finally, someone who understands character integrity.

    • Tina

      Idk if Lita is gunna be in, but the only way I’d be cool with Trish losing is if she ends up in the final 2 and they battle it out for a while in like a passing of the torch moment

    • Them walking out as winner to me would be just like the mens division mess with legends, I love em but we need to worry about the future.

  • Tina

    I’m worried for Molly, hopefully the crowd don’t go silent when she come out. Lol

    With all the Mandy/Trish comparisons I think it would iconic for Mandys career to sneak up and eliminate her. Would really get her career a jump!

    I don’t wanna see Nikki back without Brie tbh. Especially not if the Iconic Duo will be entering too

    • Mark?

      This is so weird of me to say but I kinda miss The Bellas. I do hope they come back to debut one or two cool tag team moves. Heck, have Nikki lift up a girl in a samoan drop position, Brie then climbs the turnbuckle and dropkicks the girl on Nikki’s shoulders and then Nikki falls back and hits the samoan drop! YAS.

      • Tina

        I miss Brie so much. I feel like Nikki’s on again off again thing is getting eh, she needs her sister to me

    • ???

      I know right? Molly doesn’t get the recognition she deserves and WWE don’t mention her that much, saw I also doubt the crowd may go silent LOL

  • Del Rey

    Alright, I’m almost 100% certain Victoria is in It too. She’s gonna be doing an indy event for Tommy Dreamer and if the women’s rumble is the main event, she’s gonna join. Plus, just checked out her Instagram/Twitter. She looks to be in amazing shape. She looks practically the same as she did while in WWE. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fd0ccdb9712f15e20a7031298304240bc5fd803b0c8b1f11708d24504ef00ddb.gif

  • Omar Zaal

    My guess for the 11 open spots

    Trish
    Lita
    Kharma
    Beth
    Kairi Sane
    Molly Holly
    Mccool
    Payton Royce
    Billie Kay
    Brie
    Nikki.

    A month ago I dreamt of Kharma in the Rumble ?

  • ???

    I think these who I think may going to be in the RR (not including Rounda Rousey)

    – The Iconic Duo (Perfect time to debut)
    – Victoria (She already had a match with Candice Michelle two months ago and she is still in a great shape)
    – Kaitlyn (Just recently returned to the ring, she seems to be ready)
    – The Bella Twins (Perfect timing to bring them back)
    – Molly Holly (Rumored to be signed in the RR, she already competed at WM25 even though it was horrible but this year’s event is historic and she may want to put talents over)
    – Michelle McCool (She was teasing alot lately)
    – Trish Stratus (Same as Michelle, was voted as number one)
    – Lita (She has a chance so why she will turn down this offer? And was voted as number 2 in the poll )
    – Kharma (So many people want her and was voted as the top 3 in the most wanted women to be in the RR in WWE poll)

    Who I want :
    – Victoria
    – AJ Lee
    – Iconic Duo
    – Kairi Sane
    – Trish Stratus
    – Lita
    – Nikki Bella
    – Melina
    – Beth Phoenix
    – Kelly Kelly
    – Eva Marie

  • I’ll be death if Kharma returns, I hope Victoria, Michelle, The Bella Twins, Trish, Lita, Torrie, Kaitlyn, Kelly Kelly, Beth and Iconic Duo could be of the surprise entrants.

  • Ronline

    Gail Kim returns, eliminates herself from the Rumble. Id legit pay money to see that happen.

    • Charlie Weston

      ????

  • Ronline

    As for wishes?
    Ember Moon
    The Iconic Duo
    Kairi Sane
    Candice LeRae
    Alpha Female
    Victoria
    Michelle McCool
    Trish AND Lita (together, oh could you imagine!)
    Gail Kim (She still works with Impact, but one can dream)
    Kharma (a stare down with Nia would be amazing!)

    Who most likely will?
    Brie & Nikki Bella
    Ronda Rousey

  • ?K . A . T ?

    I’d say for each one:

    NXT – Ember Moon, Iconic Duo or Nikki Cross.

    Indy Darling – Serena Deeb, Candice LeRae or Mercedes Martinez

    Past Divas – Bella Twins, Michelle McCool, Eve Torres, Victoria or K2

    Hall of Famer – Trish Stratus, Lita, Jackie or Beth.

    Black Sheep – Melina

    As for who I’d like to see:

    NXT – Ember, Iconic, Dakota, or Aliyah

    Indy Darling – Candice, Tessa, Toni, Piper, Kay Lee or Nicole Matthews

    Past Divas – Molly Holly, Eve, Ivory, Michelle McCool, Jazz (if she’s stiill wrestling) or Victoria.

    Hall of Famer – Trish, Lita, Jackie or Beth.

    Black Sheep – Melina or Gail Kim.

  • Nathan

    I think the Royal rumble would be the ideal time to call up the iconic duo. In the RR match have the bellas and iconic duo can the only ones in the ring (mid match), the bellas eliminate the iconic duo and then kharma comes out and elimantes them. A sweet pay off for kharma, and a reason for the iconic duo going to SDL for revenge on the bellas. I’d be fine with the bellas going over the iconic duo asking as the iconic duo go over them at WM

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Saving the best for last of course ?

    It’ll never happen but seeing Gail and Asuka face off in an empty ring would be epic.

  • Nathan

    I also love the idea of a big build up of people, maybe 14 or so in the ring, and it gets whittled down to 8, 2 in each corner remain, Bayley and Sasha, Iconic duo, Bella twins and Lay cool. I’d die if they all had a stare down…

  • FiguredRetro

    This would be my ideal Royal Rumble, listed by entry:

    1. Lana
    2. Sable
    3. Sarah Logan
    4. Bayley
    5. Becky
    6. Victoria(tATu theme)
    7. Auska
    8. Sonya Deville
    9. Ruby Riott
    10. Cherry
    11. Carmella
    12. Nia Jax

    w/Charlotte & Alexa Bliss on commentary

    I don’t expect and hope not to see too many new faces or NXT because I think it would be overkill. With so many new faces joining the roster the last few months. Hopefully this match is epic and memorable. There is always next year for more!

    • NoWayHoeSay

      Lana and sable at the same time just them two? Botchfest of elbows and botch elimination no thanks

  • perceval

    Bad news if you were hoping for Trish, Lita, Michelle, or other greats from the past if this is true…

    https://411mania.com/wrestling/details-many-nxt-women-will-appear-royal-rumble/

    So, 19 main roster women (not counting the champs) + 9 NXT women, + the Bellas = 30.

    • MK126

      Well seeing as how its been reported that Molly Holly and Michelle have been asked and almost confirmed that they’ll be in I doubt we’ll see 9 NXT women. That’s almost 1/3 of the women. They deserve their shine to but I doubt we’ll see that many women from NXT… maybe 5 at the most

      • perceval

        But, we have two “reports” that are in complete conflict. Both “reports” can’t possibly be correct. So, instead of “reports,” it’s all rumors, speculation, and gossip.

        • Super Mateo

          There’s also a rumor that Paige may miss the event due to injury, so that would open a spot up.

  • Bruno Santos

    I feel like wwe is going to troll us and have 1 of the spots be a man in drag.
    And the women will all attack “him” together.

    • Jason Wicklund

      My hope would be for Santina Marella if that does happen…

  • Jorge Hernandez Moran

    Melina coming back in the rumble is bad for my health. And if she faces off agaisnt Sasha and does the double knees that was initially hers to Sasha my heart will explote

  • IconicTrio

    I heard that Molly Holly might be back and I’m so excited for that <3

  • I see this site changes so much…smh. But yeah… I’m just ready for Molly Holly. Everyone else… Just no reason to jump for joy.

  • Am I the only ones who want the Bella Twins to have a new entrance them? Theirs now is so 2008

  • All I know is they better take this serious cause Miss Wrestlemania was a JOKE & that could’ve been something good

    Molly Holly has apparently agreed to do the Rumble.

  • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

    No one has mentioned Sable. She’d be a huge surprise. I could see her making a return and being eliminated rather quickly. The reason a lot of them don’t come back is because they haven’t wrestled in years, but in the RR they could get away with doing very little or being eliminated quick.

  • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

    I like the idea of LayCool meeting the Iconic Duo during the Rumble. Even if just McCool wrestles, it would be cool to see them enter together.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Victoria doesn’t have strong connections with WWE. She can’t even get backstage.

  • Almarpar

    Molly would be a good addition. And it would be great to see McCool back as well, i always loved her. She always tried to elevate the women to another level in the ring (styles McCool clash) so would be good to see her in the ring with todays crop.

    Im so excited for this rumble i hope it lives upto the hype. The duo, Belair, bellas, molly, mccool, beth, kairi/Nikki, trish, rhonda is what im hoping for the surprises.

    My winner is becky followed by a heel turn. The Raw WM match can be decided within the Elimination Chamer.

  • Marshy

    The WWE has not reach out to Awesome Kong/Kharma. When she was asked that question on a wrestling radio that she have said, so far no.

  • Dean

    I just read on a few wrestling news sites that the WWE told the NXT women that nine of them will be in the Rumble. That doesn’t leave many spots left for past women to return. Unless this is a ploy to surprise us. ??

  • Darren C. #Savees

    Maryse returned in 2016, not 2017.

  • Vince Martin

    with 17 women confirmed (including Paige), my 13 picks are:

    Returning
    Nikki Bella

    NXT
    Peyton Royce
    Billie Kay
    Nikki Cross/Kairi Sane/Bianca Belair

    Alumni
    Molly Holly (is she confirmed?)
    Victoria
    Michelle
    Trish/Lita (I doubt both will enter)
    Eve/Kelly

    Surprise/Indie
    Viper
    Toni
    Ronda
    Emma (I wish)

  • NoWayHoeSay

    Here for Trish and Mickie moment

  • Raekon

    There is so much great talent around that even a 50 women rumble match wouldn’t be enough to carry them all.
    Personally I would love a few legends to enter as also a few MYC entrants that are not signed with the wwe for sure.
    However, Alpha Female (Jazzy) can be ruled out since the same that happened to Io Shirai, happened to her aswell. :( The wwe pulled the contract with her back after the medical examination found out a neck issue she has to take care off. :(

  • Marshy

    As of right now that they need to reach out to Awesome Kong/Kharma at this point and time especially if the rumors about Paige won’t be participating in the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble match are true that they need to call Kharma, call Cameron or Eva Marie or even Emma or Summer Rae.
