Two more women join the Royal Rumble, 14 more spots open

Two more participants were added to the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match last night with a total of 16 female WWE Superstars officially part of the match as of right now.

Mickie James and Nia Jax became the latest individuals to throw in their names for the Rumble match, joining Asuka, Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Naomi, Natalya, Paige, Sonya Deville, Mandy Rose, Tamina Snuka, Lana, and Carmella.

A few more are expected to be announced during Smackdown tonight.

Meanwhile, the big rumors are obviously surrounding former UFC champion Ronda Rousey and her involvement in the Rumble. It’s no secret that Rousey is training to become a professional wrestler and has been doing sessions at the WWE Performance Center as well so it would make sense to have her debut during the big pay-per-view.

Here’s what odds and prediction sites like Sports Betting Dime has to say about Ronda Rousey’s odds on making her debut at Royal Rumble:

“It appears Ronda Rousey is going to make her WWE debut sometime in 2018. The best way to introduce the former UFC Champ to the WWE masses would be at the Women’s Royal Rumble on Jan. 28th, potentially entering last and winning the match, thus setting up a huge fight at WrestleMania against either the Smackdown or RAW champ. The storyline basically writes itself, which is why we have Rousey’s odds to appear at Royal Rumble at 1/3.”

There are 22 females on the main roster at the moment, two of who are champions and will not be part of the Rumble. With this Rumble match having 30 entrants, WWE has to get 10 others from either NXT, former Superstars, or other surprises to reach that number.
