5 potential winners of the women's Royal Rumble
The women of WWE continue to make history, almost on a weekly basis. After a women's Iron Man, Hell in A Cell and Money in The Bank match, WWE are taking it one step further with the first ever women's Royal Rumble match.
The men's Royal Rumble match is still going to be the biggest draw of the show but that doesn't mean anyone is less excited about the women. Things get more exciting when you consider that there are only 19 main roster performers eligible to compete in the match, leaving 11 spots open for surprise entrants from NXT and maybe even a legendary cameo appearance or two.
Let us look at the 5 women with the most potential to win the inaugural history making match.
#5 Sasha Banks
'The Boss' has been riding a huge momentum of popularity since arriving at the main roster, even though she debuted as a heel. Sasha has had the privilege of competing in WWE's first women's Iron Man and Hell in A Cell matches, and although she came out on the losing end, that only makes the stakes for her winning the Royal Rumble even higher.
Sasha is already a 4 time WWE RAW Women's Champion but each of her reigns has been quite poor as she lost the Championship each time on only her first defence and only after hold it for a week or two on each occasion. Is it possible that these short meagre reigns could be building up to a really big well-earned payoff?
If so, I can't imagine a better payoff than to come out on top of the Royal Rumble match and defeat Alexa Bliss, or whomever the Champion may be at WrestleMania.
