The Royal Rumble PPV is just weeks away, and for the first time in its 20 year history, WWE is holding the women’s Royal Rumble match.
The match was planned several months ago, but it was officially declared last month on RAW by Stephanie McMahon.
Even though the match was declared the number of participants was kept as a secret. The initial decision was to make it as a 15 or 20 women Royal Rumble match as the number of women superstars isn’t that high, and some are also competing in the match itself, there is also going to Women’s championship matches of both RAW and SmackDown.
However, recently it was revealed that just like the 30 men Royal Rumble match, there will also be a 30 women Royal Rumble match.
Now the number may be high, but WWE is planning to cover that up by bringing retired Hall of famers in the match, and upcoming talents from NXT.
Leaked reports suggest that WWE is planning to bring back former female superstars like Beth Phoenix, Brie Bella, Trish Stratus and others for the match.
With all this going the winner of the match has also been decided. Although we are going to know it during the match day, many believe that there are few superstars who are odds on favorite to win the women Royal Rumble match.
So, let us give a look at the top 3 favorite superstars who are most likely to win the women Royal Rumble match:-
#3. Nia Jackson
When it comes to size and power, Nia Jackson has it all. Despite her power and in-ring talent, Nia Jackson didn’t get the push she deserved.
But in 2018, that might change as there are rumors that WWE is planning to give her a major push. That could happen by giving her the win at the women Royal Rumble match.
Nia even herself showed the interest of winning the Royal Rumble match recently on RAW. So a match between Nia and Alexa at Wrestlemania would be great as both these superstars are on and off screen best friends.
#2. Becky Lynch
In this list, we have two RAW superstars who are odds on favorite to win the women Royal Rumble match, and only one SmackDown superstar and that is Becky Lynch.
After the Riot Squad invaded the Blue brand, Becky Lynch was one of their first targets. As a result, she suffered an injury was out of action for months.
Fast forward, a couple of weeks ago, Becky Lynch made her comeback to SmackDown. Currently, there are plans that the SmackDown women’s Champion Charlotte will be taking on Naomi at the Royal Rumble PPV.
But her next opponent could very well be Becky Lynch at Wrestlemania. In total, it will be great to see two best friends having a feud with each other.
If in 2017, there was Slammy Award segment for female superstar of the year then it would have gone to Asuka.
RAW’s newest women wrestler have been in a role. So far Asuka is undefeated and it can be seen from the in-ring performance.
Back in Survivor Series, Asuka single-handedly pinned Natalya, and Tamina to get RAW a win over SmackDown.
A few weeks ago during a segment on RAW, Asuka declared that Asuka is going to enter the women’s Royal Rumble match and is also going to win it as nobody is ready for her.
Many believe that this is going to happen, as Asuka is most likely to win the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match.
Out of all these wrestlers, Asuka is the most odds on favorite to win this year women’s Royal Rumble match.
