  • First Ever Women's “Royal Rumble” Match Announced

On today's episode of Monday Night Raw, Stephanie McMahon announced that this January, for the very first time, the WWE will hold a women's Royal Rumble Match.

The women's Royal Rumble marks another milestone in WWE's women's evolution, which has placed a spotlight on its female athletes, involving them in more prominent storylines, with deeper character development and longer matches.

Louisiana teen's reaction to be accepted to Harvard goes viral
Among the slew of well-wishers from across the Twittersphere was Harvard alumnus and Brooklyn Nets basketball player Jeremy Lin. My oldest son got into Stanford on Friday and we have been waiting for a response from Harvard, and I just can't believe it.

The movement she's referring to is the Women's Revolution, a movement that began with the "Give Divas A Chance" hashtag following a tag match that saw Paige and Emma take on The Bella Twins in February 2015.

Though the specifics of the match are yet to be announced, it's likely that the victor of the match will receive a shot at either the Raw or Smackdown Women's Championship at the upcoming WrestleMania 34 in April. Another match was added to the pay-per-view later on in the night. "They deserve their own match at Royal Rumble". With so much talent on the main roster and in NXT, there shouldn't be a problem filling spots, although we don't quite know just yet how many spots that will be.

Carlos Tanner , Simmons passed with flying colors, and plans to repeat the test for allegations made by 4 other women. In the last few days, one woman attempted to extort me for $500,000 only to recant her ridiculous claim.

Stephanie didn't confirm if the match would feature 20 or 30 superstars, though should WWE elect to mirror the surprise element to the men's match by calling upon legends of the league for one-night returns.

For most of 2017, there has been one rumor that constantly simmered: the Women's Royal Rumble. Feel free to join in the conversation in the comments section below.
