WWE set for first ever women's Royal Rumble match in January

WWE Raw WWE Raw

Female performers are role models, inspiring and empowering women and girls to be confident and strong.

Ask enough and ye shall receive - because WWE announced on Raw tonight that the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble match will take place. The month starts on January 4th with New Japan Pro Wrestling's very big Wrestle Kingdom card (Okada vs Naito and Omega vs Jericho fuck me all the way up god damn), and ends towards the end of the calendar month with the WWE's always chaotic, fan favourite Royal Rumble event.

Unless of course they grab some people from NXT and the Performance Center. Women already on the main roster were forced to step up their game to keep up with these young stars and absolutely delivered.

This past summer, women's wrestling continued to evolve as the WWE Network held The Mae Young Classic, a 32-woman tournament featuring some of the best wrestlers the world has to offer.




Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon made the massive announcement on the December 18 edition of Raw, declaring that female WWE Superstars will compete for a championship opportunity at WrestleMania 34.

We've had women Hell in a Cell matches, Money in the Bank matches and more. As it's been in the past with the men's Rumble match, this could also provide some great cameos from past superstars. Bravo, ladies. You deserve this.

Now that Mahal is no longer WWE Champion and AJ Styles is holding down the house that he built on Tuesday nights, many are hoping to potentially see a rematch from their IWGP Intercontinental Championship bout at Wrestle Kingdom 10.
