WWE Announces Women's Royal Rumble Match

Watch Stephanie McMahon Announce WWE's First-Ever Women's Royal Rumble

That's right - the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match will be held next month in what should no doubt be considered a milestone for WWE.

Stephanie McMahon broke the news live on Monday Night Raw that there will be an all-female version of the traditional elimination match at the first pay-per-view of 2018. And if that's my true trademark move, then I'm going to do it better than anybody and I'm sorry but I played pro football for a little while and I think I know how to tackle somebody. "There's been an incredible movement that's been happening in our business that started almost three years ago" she said.

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

The announcement came after Absolution's match with Sasha Banks, Bayley and Mickie James devolved into an all-put brawl. Women already on the main roster were forced to step up their game to keep up with these young stars and absolutely delivered. The response was fantastic and the response to this announcement should be quite similar. "They deserve their own match at Royal Rumble", said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. Personally I'm very optimistic and excited for this match.

We will provide more details on the match as they become available to us. As it's been in the past with the men's Rumble match, this could also provide some great cameos from past superstars.
