We are just a week away from Royal Rumble. It’s easily my favorite of the big four pay-per-view events and the card looks awesome this year. It should be a great night for women’s wrestling with two first time match-ups for the women’s titles, Sasha Banks versus Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch versus Asuka, and the women’s Royal Rumble match.
As of today, WWE announced 21 of the 30 entrants for the second women’s Royal Rumble match, leaving nine remaining entrants. Surprise entrants are part of what makes the match so fun. There’s room for big returns, NXT call-ups and even a possible legend we haven’t seen in years. The first women’s Royal Rumble didn’t disappoint in that regard, but this year’s match could be even better.
There wasn’t as much build-up to the match last year, but there are so many storylines leading up to Sunday that could play into the rumble and WrestleMania season. With that in mind, these are my predictions for the nine remaining spots.
