#10 Beth Phoenix
In the 2010 Royal Rumble match, Beth Phoenix became the second female wrestler - after Chyna - to enter the Royal Rumble match. The only reason Chyna isn’t on this list is that she used to compete with the male talent, so her entering the Royal Rumble match wasn’t a major surprise. Beth Phoenix entered the Royal Rumble match in 2006 and shocked the world by eliminating The Great Khali.
After eliminating The Great Khali, Beth Phoenix got very close to eliminating CM Punk as well. But, her time in the Royal Rumble didn't last long as CM Punk eliminated Beth Phoenix.
