The 2018 Royal Rumble event will emanate from Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This will be the 30th anniversary of the event and will officially kick off the road to Wrestlemania 34.

On the December 18, 2017, episode of WWE Raw, Stephanie McMahon interrupted a commotion featuring all of Raw's female Superstars to announce the first ever Women's Royal Rumble.

The announcement is believed to have shocked all the women who were present in the ring since none of them expected it. We will, therefore, have two Royal Rumble matches but it is the women's Royal Rumble match that has generated a lot of media interest since it has never been done before.

Speculations on who will win the first-ever women's Royal Rumble has been rife this past week. With a number of surprise entrants widely expected, one name has been widely rumoured to debut on the show.

The name is Ronda Rousey who has been spotted training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida in recent months. The Royal Rumble, therefore, presents the perfect avenue for Ronda's seemingly inevitable WWE debut.

Here are the 5 reasons why Ronda Rousey should debut and win the Royal Rumble match;

#5 Legitimacy to the Women's division

Ronda Rousey is a legend in the world of mixed martial art. She is the former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion and was ranked the most dominant active athlete in 2015 by two magazines. She made her first WWE appearance at Wrestlemania 31 where she had an altercation with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Ronda is a decorated judoka, she typically grounds an opponent with hip throws and sweeps, then seeks to finish with strikes or submissions. She is right-handed but is a left-handed judoka fighting in an orthodox stance as a striker. It is therefore quite obvious why she was once the most feared woman in Mixed Martial Arts. A Royal Rumble win by such an accomplished fighter would bring legitimacy to the WWE Women's division and such a move would also make the division grow even further.
