On top of having a female voice on commentary for the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble, the WWE have also announced that celebrity guest Maria Menounos will serve as special ring announcer for the event:
“The ‘Extra’ host (and WrestleMania veteran) filled in for Kelly Ripa on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ earlier today and let slip during an interview with Golden Globe Award winner Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) that she will serve as the guest announcer for the inaugural contest.”
Menounos is no stranger to the WWE Universe. She has served as a special guest interviewer for various PPV events and even has a WrestleMania win under her belt when she teamed up with Kelly Kelly to defeat Beth Phoneix and Eve Torres at WrestleMania 28.
