5 Best No. 18 Entries in the Royal Rumble
#5 Natalya (2018) - Eliminated 25th - 3 Eliminations
The 2018 Royal Rumble was a historic event, as it marked the first time that the WWE had a 30 woman Royal Rumble to coincide with their 30 man version of the Royal Rumble. While the men's version was not devoid of female wrestlers, Chyna entered the Royal Rumble twice, 'The Glamazon' Beth Phoenix entered the Royal Rumble once as did Kharma, better known as Awesome Kong in TNA.
However, Chyna, Beth, and Kharma were booked far stronger than their female counterparts of the time and were therefore granted the right to be in the ring with men. In the modern day WWE, female wrestlers like Becky, Charlotte, Sasha, and Natalya are seen as equals to their male counterparts.
Natalya entered the historic Royal Rumble as the 18th entry, making it all the way to the final 6 before being eliminated by Trish Stratus. Natalya was able to eliminate Nia Jax, Michelle McCool, and former ally Beth Phoenix during her 25 minute and 34 second run in the 2018 Royal Rumble.
