  • WWE announces first-ever women's Royal Rumble match

The encouraging news for WWE female wrestlers was announced by WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon during Monday Night Raw live on USA Network.

Next month at Royal Rumble, Lesnar will defend his Universal title against Kane and Braun Strowman.

WWE women have made a whole lot of history over the past couple of years, most recently with the first-ever WWE women's wrestling match in Abu Dhabi.

Ever since the Women's Revolution happened on "Raw" in 2015, female superstars have been taking WWE by storm and revolutionized the wrestling industry.




This year, WWE created the first-ever women's tournament, Mae Young Classic, which included 32 of the top female competitors from 16 countries, underscoring the breadth and global diversity of women in sports entertainment. They've main-evented Raws, competed in the first ever Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match, wrestled the first women's match in the middle east, and that's just in one year!

There were no additional details announced about the Royal Rumble match, but it's unlikely going to feature 30 women as I don't think there's enough women on the main roster to fill in the numbers.

-Whether the victor can challenge for ANY title or only their brand's title.

The 2018 Rumble event takes place on January 28th at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
