Stephanie McMahon

While Stephanie McMahon hasn’t been featured much on WWE Programming in recent times, she did appear on Raw 25 during the opening segment and now it has been revealed that she will return to WWE TV at this Sunday’s Royal Rumble PPV as well.

After months of rumors, Stephanie had announced the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble during the December 18th episode of Raw last year.

Now in a latest tweet as seen below the Raw commissioner revealed that she will also become a part of this historic moment by joining the commentary team for the bout:

Royal Rumble will be taking place from Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia this Sunday. Below is an updated list of participants who are confirmed to be a part of the Women’s Rumble:


Ruby Riott

Liv Morgan

Sarah Logan

Sasha Banks

Nia Jax




Sonya Deville

Mandy Rose

Mickie James

Tamina Snuka



Becky Lynch

    With so many spots open, it is going to lead to a lot of speculation as to who will fill those spots, and will in essence make it more interesting than the mens match as that will probably only give a couple of surprises.

    Of course it will be a mix of “legends” and NXT stars, but who exactly?

    For a single Rumble, you could almost guarantee that most retired females would at least consider a one time return if they are still physically capable, with the likes of Michelle McCool and Trish Stratus already hinting to the fact they want in.

    After her HoF induction, and hints of wanting to step back in the ring one more time, I could easily see Alundra Blayze return.
    Of course the Rhonda Roussey rumours will pick up pace as well.
    It could also see a return of females who have left the company in recent years who are still active, and they could then stay on the roster. (I don’t see it happening, but just as an example, Emma).
    And of course it could also be padded out by one shot appearances from women who appeared in the Mae Young Classic. Personally I would love to see Toni Storm appear, even if it is just a one off.

    Having 14 open spots is actually a great idea, as long as they fill those spots well.
    Only have NXT talent come in if they are gonna get a worthwhile spot on the roster. Nobody needs a female Ty Dillinger, especially if it spoils the womens division in NXT.

    I heard a rumour the winner will be Santina Marella.
    Not sure why we have not heard much from her in years.

    Wow, 14 more spots to fill…. they’re going to have a lot of explaining to do!

    I wonder at what intervals the superstars will enter. I’m thinking 1:30.
