“History will be made at the 30th Anniversary of the Royal Rumble when the WWE Universe witnesses the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match tonight.
It was truly an emotional moment on the Dec. 18 edition of Monday Night Raw when Commissioner Stephanie McMahon made the monumental announcement, declaring that female WWE Superstars will compete for a championship opportunity at WrestleMania 34.
In the historic event, the same rules that apply to the Men’s Royal Rumble Match will apply to the Women’s. Thirty Superstars will enter, one at a time, at consistent intervals. An elimination occurs when a Superstar is sent over the top rope with both feet touching the floor, and the last woman standing will receive a Championship Match at WrestleMania.
With 30 spots available in the ground-breaking contest, the competition promises to be as fierce as it gets. 16 Superstars have officially declared so far including:
2) Ruby Riott
3) Liv Morgan
4) Sarah Logan
5) Sasha Banks
6) Nia Jax
10) Sonya Deville
11) Mandy Rose
12) Mickie James?
13) Tamina Snuka
16) Becky Lynch
17) Dana Brooke
18) Alicia Fox
The cutting-edge phenomenon that is the WWE Women’s division can only be described as the Women’s Evolution, as the incredible female athletes from Raw and SmackDown LIVE have made history time and again, from the first-ever women’s Hell in a Cell Match to the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match to the unprecedented Raw Women’s Championship Match in the Middle East. And now, as the established elite talent is joined by an influx of up-and-coming Superstars, the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble Match will undoubtedly be a can’t-miss contest.
Which Superstar will seize the moment and book a ticket to WrestleMania 34 for a championship match in New Orleans?”
