5 takeaways from the first RAW of 2018
The first Monday Night RAW of 2018 was presented live from Miami, as WWE looked to begin the year on a high note. The first-ever New Year edition of Monday Night RAW promised a lot of high-intensity action and delivered throughout the show.
A lot of excellent segments in the show resulted in a great show from top-to-bottom, with a major Bullet Club reunion being a highlight of the show. A fantastic encounter between Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe once again proved the top-notch chemistry between the two behemoths.
We look at five talking points from this week's Monday Night RAW.
#5: Historical Announcement
Kurt Angle opened the first show of 2018, announcing the rules for the upcoming first-ever Women's Royal Rumble. The anticipation for this history-making moment is rising among the WWE Universe, and the RAW GM answered a few questions about the event.
To further prove that the women wrestlers are by no means lesser than their men counterparts, WWE has made the Royal Rumble for women an over-the-top affair as opposed to the middle rope elimination scheme employed in many women battle royal matches.
The total number of wrestlers participating in this historical event will be thirty, which begs the question as to who could be the surprise entrants in the rumble. Excluding the champions, the current roster features only nineteen women eligible to participate.
A lot of surprises are guaranteed to come our way on 28th of January!
