She then said that the women will make history again on January 28 when they compete in the first-ever women's Royal Rumble.

Stephanie McMahon broke the news live on Monday Night Raw that there will be an all-female version of the traditional elimination match at the first pay-per-view of 2018.

However, things began to change as a new group of women in NXT, essentially the minor-league system for WWE that constantly puts on better shows than the main roster, began to put people on notice that they weren't going to be second-class citizens any longer. The response was fantastic and the response to this announcement should be quite similar.

"The first-ever women's Royal Rumble match will mark a significant moment in the evolution of WWE", said McMahon.

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

We've had women Hell in a Cell matches, Money in the Bank matches and more. "They deserve their own match at Royal Rumble". The match itself ended in disqualification when it broke down into an all-out brawl, and the six women were soon joined by the rest of the women's division, as Nia Jax, Dana Brooke, Asuka, Alicia Fox, and Alexa Bliss also hit the ring and entered the fray.

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.
