The WWE Just Announced An Historic All-Women Royal Rumble Match

19 December 2017, 10:53 | Cassandra Thompson



"The women's Royal Rumble marks another milestone in WWE's women's evolution, which has placed a spotlight on its female performers, involving them in more prominent storylines, with deeper character development and longer matches".

The "Billion Dollar Princess" Stephanie McMahon returned to Monday Night Raw this week to drop an absolute BOMBSHELL of an announcement.

On January 24, 1988, WWE held its first televised Royal Rumble event on the USA Network, as opposed to the pay-per-view medium that WrestleMania and Survivor Series were already gracing.

If WWE surprised everyone with a Ronda Rousey debut in the Women's Royal Rumble match and gave her the victory, it could set up a logical match with Charlotte Flair vs Ronda Rousey as suggested by the rumour mill.

WWE has been hitting out a lot of women's firsts since the start of the women's revolution.

And in November 2016, Rotterdam airport was then the target of a reported terror threat, which also turned out to be false. It serves as the second main hub for Air France-KLM, and also hosts many budget airlines such as Transavia and EasyJet.

"We've had the first ever women's Hell In A Cell match and the first ever women's Money In The Bank ladder match and just two weeks ago women competed in a WWE in the middle east for the first time", the Raw commissioner said to the red brand's women's division, who had assembled in the ring.

WWE, a publicly traded company (NYSE: WWE), is an integrated media organization and recognized leader in global entertainment. The company is headquartered in Stamford, Conn., with offices in New York, Los Angeles, London, Mexico City, Mumbai, Shanghai, Singapore, Dubai, Munich and Tokyo.

Bell time is 7:30 p.m. ET.

So far at next year's Royal Rumble, only two matches had been confirmed for the January 28 pay-per-view which takes place from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
