For 2018, that match concept is being applied to the women. Here is our full preview and match predictions, as WWE kicks off the road to WrestleMania in New Orleans this April.
Will a newcomer solidify their presence? Fascinatingly, the Intercontinental Title and US Title are set to be advertised on the card so far.
I'm really interested to see what WWE does with this match, because quite frankly, they don't have 30 women on the roster.
They could still easily switch the title back onto Styles at Elimination Chamber. From Becky to Bliss and Bayley to Banks, women's wrestling is a whole new beast in the wrestling world and the fact that there will be, for the first time ever, a women's Royal Rumble is testament to that statement.
SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan regarded this as a fantastic idea, not only making the Handicap Match official, which declares that the WWE Title Match would happen at Royal Rumble, much to the shock of all parties concerned, including SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon. It would even make sense to have her debut at the Royal Rumble.
"I do, 100%, see it in our foreseeable future that we will main event WrestleMania", she said.
Colorado lawmakers react to Trump's reported attempt to fire Mueller
Grassley has said he will only consider one of the bills in committee but lawmakers have not yet settled the chosen legislation. Dowd's disclosure did only not name the people nor provide a breakdown of how many were interviewed only by Mueller's team.
There's nothing like the Royal Rumble when it comes to rumors and speculation among wrestling fans.
In the main event, despite achieving a somewhat quick win over Kevin Owens, AJ Styles ran out of steam against Sami Zayn as the WWE heavyweight champ was booked in back-to-back matches against the proponents of the Yep Movement.
AJ Styles is the best wrestler in WWE, no doubt about it. If Mahal doesn't have a title, then it won't do well for this career.
With just a few short hours before the Royal Rumble is set to begin the latest odds have the Royal Rumble winners being kept largely the same as they were in the last couple of weeks. Finn Balor finds himself running with old friends, his Bullet Club "Good Brothers" Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson as the newly christened Balor Club.
Brock Lesnar will compete against Braun Strowman and Kane in triple threat for WWE Universal title. That starts the storylines for Raw and gives SmackDown Live plenty to go off of as well. Sure, there are literally hundreds of examples of how bad and downright embarrassing it can be, but when they get it right, it's a kind of theatre that nobody can match. I would love for him to return and turn heel. While it seems clear that everyone either wants, thinks or believes Asuka is going to win it all.
