WWE Announces Women's Royal Rumble Match

Stephanie McMahon announces women's only Royal Rumble match

For most of 2017, there has been one rumor that constantly simmered: the Women's Royal Rumble.

Three years after the women's revolution, Stephanie McMahon returned to Monday Night Raw to announce the next step in the evolution - a women's royal rumble at the January 28 pay-per-view. Paige carried her NXT Women's Title until jumping right to the main roster where she defeated AJ Lee for the WWE Diva's Championship on the night after WrestleMania XXX.

This announcement will mean way more than just an exciting addition to the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January because it will also add a new story leading into WrestleMania showcasing the women this time around. "They deserve their own match at Royal Rumble", said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer.

However, the group denied being behind a truck bomb attack in the city earlier in October that killed at least 358 people. Since then the United States has increased the frequency of air strikes targeting Jihadist leaders.

Though the specifics of the match are yet to be announced, it's likely that the victor of the match will receive a shot at either the Raw or Smackdown Women's Championship at the upcoming WrestleMania 34 in April.

Are you excited about the the first ever women's "Royal Rumble" match? Female performers are role models, inspiring and empowering women and girls to be confident and strong.

Since then, WWE has placed a greater emphasis on its female stars, including recruiting talent from around the world. Also in partnership with Mattel, WWE unveiled the first-ever Fashion Doll line featuring its female Superstars.
