Bianca Belair and Liv Morgan have officially declared themselves as entrants into the 2022 Royal Rumble Match. With the addition of Belair and Morgan we now know 21 out of the 30 women who will fight for a chance to main event at WrestleMania 38.
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch kicked off this week’s Raw as she took credit for the women’s division of the red brand being hotter than ever. She says that it is so good that it brought the likes of Lita, The Bella Twins, and Mickie James who want to get in on the action in the Royal Rumble. She adds that she is giving Doudrop “a taste of the big time” by allowing her to face her for the title at the upcoming event.
Belair was the first to interrupt Lynch and Doudrop who were already in the ring to declare herself in the Rumble. She is confident that she will repeat what took place last year and she will win back-to-back Rumble matches and go on to main event WrestleMania once again. Morgan followed suit and once she made her way out to the ring she declared herself in the Rumble as well.
In a scheduled tag team match, Belair and Morgan would have to tag together as they faced Lynch and her Royal Rumble opponent Doudrop. Doudrop and Lynch coexisted as best as one would think (they didn’t) and it would be Doudrop who got the win for her team.
In the final moments of the match, Belair was tossed out and on the outside of the ring. Lynch hits a Manhandle slam on Morgan and went for the pin but her own tag team partner landed a splash on both women to break it up. Doudrop pulls Lynch to the corner and away from Morgan so she could get the pin herself. The official lets her know she is not the legal competitor so she exits the ring and tags herself in from a knocked out Lynch in the corner. Doudrop lands one more splash on Morgan and then pins her for the victory.
Post match, Doudrop delivers a drop to Lynch in the corner.
