Number of NXT Talents for Women's Royal Rumble Match Revealed

Number of NXT Talents for Women’s Royal Rumble Match Revealed

As previously reported, 19 women on the main roster will be competing in the Women’s Royal Rumble match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. Those names include Natalya, Naomi, Ruby Riott, Alicia Fox, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan, Dana Brooke, Asuka, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Carmella, Tamina, Lana, Nia Jax, Becky Lynch, Mickie James and Paige.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that he’s been told that nine 9 women from the NXT brand are expected to make appearances in the match. That only leaves 2-3 surprise entrants in the match (3 if Paige doesn’t get cleared, 2 if she does). The belief is that the remaining spots could be The Bella Twins or Ronda Rousey. PWInsider reported earlier this week that those spots could also go to Michelle McCool and Molly Holly.

We will keep you updated if we hear anything new regarding Paige’s status for the match or rumored names for the match.

    The difference is enormous between the “WOMEN” of today’s WWE & the “DIVAS” of yester-year! Realizing the lineage of the Women in the Company History is awesome, but Should WWE mix them in with today’s Performers that can truly go in the ring?!? 19 from the Main Roster, 9 from NXT, & Molly Holly. My math says that is 29 Women, leaving just One available spot. No, not Rousey, so who could it be? Michelle McCool? If rumors of her Husband returning are True then I could see Her making a Mini-Run of her own thru RR & maybe Mania?
    I’m open to suggestions though. The Women’s Royal Rumble does he me intrigued to see how it turns out. This will set the bar for years to come for these Women.

      There’s nothing that makes the current women’s division awesome. When 95% of them can’t wrestle and the ones that can aren’t given any title chance.

    I was not expecting that many from NXT.I thought the most would have been 5.Also,if one of them do win,would they have to go after the NXT womens title?

      That’s a good question. I think they should be promoted to the main roster and challenge one the the main roster champs.

    Botchamania is licking their chops on this one

    Bullshit. They should have just did 20 this year.
