Edge and Christian open today’s show speaking about the announcement of the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble match. Christian thinks that this is another great step in the right direction for women’s professional wrestling, and Edge completely agrees. Edge thinks that it’s only a matter of time before the Women main event WrestleMania, and that historic match might even piggyback off of this Rumble match.
Edge welcomes his wife, Beth Phoenix to the show to discuss this huge announcement. Phoenix says that hearing this announcement was one of the proudest moments in her professional life. During her time in WWE, all the women felt like they could sell tickets like the men but they weren’t presented in a situation to do so. She’s happy for this generation of women’s wrestlers who finally have that opportunity.
Phoenix informs that her phone has been blowing up since this announcement with questions regarding her potential return for this Rumble. She mentions that it’s a great feeling to receive those messages and questions, and this just proves that there’s a bunch of buzz surrounding this match.
