It's arguably the best event of the year.
For the first time, the Royal Rumble will include the stalwarts of ladies wrestling in a fight for supremacy. In fact, that's probably the key to world peace.
The announcement for the match was made by Stephanie McMahon during Raw last December.
Some 30 years after the event became an instant classic among fans, women have earned their own, on the strength of a huge surge in popularity of women's wrestling in the last five years, built on the backs of any woman who ever set foot inside a wrestling ring.
Flair added: "When you keep in mind a lot of the focus is pointing towards Mania, then I think Roman Reigns has got a good chance". This event is the most fun to watch for me, because I'm looking forward to the surprise comebacks and debuts every year. The girls are getting longer matches and cool stories and characters and I'm super proud of it. Jinder Mahal? An NXT call-up? The winners of both these matches will receive championship matches at Wrestlemania 34. But the more I think about it, there just might not be enough room for them. Randy Orton won the match a year ago and it led to an embarrassing slide show match with Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania. We haven't seen Dolph on TV since he relinquished the USA title on Smackdown. Gable and Benjamin aren't my favorite tag team, but I do see them winning at the Rumble.
Is there more the women's division can achieve?
But of course, the elephant in the room is whether or not we'll see "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey in the Royal Rumble.
But will the "Rowdy" one eventually make the UFC-for-WWE trade? That many "R's" could give any Bostonian an aneurysm. There are hard rumors that Ronda Rousey has actually agreed to terms with WWE, and her Instagram photos this weekend of being "on set" in Columbia is a way to throw off fans.
Stephanie McMahon, WWE Raw commissioner and someone who has been a part of the company for nearly two decades, couldn't control her emotions while talking about the announcement. Have The Nature Boy at ringside and everything.
Rousey's face also obviously lit up at the mention of Alexa Bliss, the reigning WWE Raw Women's Champion.
It wouldn't be a Royal Rumble without Roman Reigns being near the top of the betting. That's one, if not the only, thing I like about the brand split. But as much as Smackdown doesn't like to be heralded as the B show.it is.
On the other hand, probably the player did have such an instinct as, post the match ended without a victor, Angle can now all set to offer the WWE Universe a colossal free-for-all pitting the three forces of nature which can go against each other.
