WWE Announces First Ever Women's Royal Rumble Match For Next Month's PPV

Drew Gulak faces Cedric Alexander for a shot at Enzo Amore's cruiserweight title

Female performers are role models, inspiring and empowering women and girls to be confident and strong.

Clash of Champions wrapped up a rather interesting year for WWE pay-per-views and now we look to January and the start of Wrestlemania season: the Royal Rumble.

Unless of course they grab some people from NXT and the Performance Center.

This past summer, women's wrestling continued to evolve as the WWE Network held The Mae Young Classic, a 32-woman tournament featuring some of the best wrestlers the world has to offer.

The main event match of the annual show - now approaching its 31st iteration - is a sprawling, 30-person over the top rope Royal Rumble battle royal (say that ten times quickly) with a championship match at WrestleMania going to the victor.

In addition, earlier this month, WWE Superstars Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss took part in the first-ever women's match in the Middle East.

The terms of his contract with WWE from his most recent run: "I only agreed to come back for one match originally".

Excited to see the ladies in a Rumble match? No more details were announced about the match so stay tuned because we'll be posting more information when we know more. As it's been in the past with the men's Rumble match, this could also provide some great cameos from past superstars. Feel free to join in the conversation in the comments section below.
