2018 Royal Rumble ended with Ronda Rousey's debut

Last year, WWE hosted the first ever women's Royal Rumble match. Asuka won the match but her victory was overshadowed by the debut of Ronda Rousey. Regardless of that, the Rumble match itself was thoroughly entertaining as the superstars of today shared the ring with the superstars of the eras gone by. Several Hall of Famers and past superstars participated in the match and brought a good dose of nostalgia to the match.

But unlike last year when the women's roster was paper thin, this year the roster has a few more names in it. Including the NXT women's roster and the newly formed NXT UK Women's Roster, we have well over 30 women at WWE's disposal for the Royal Rumble match. Every woman on the roster will be fighting for a shot at Asuka or Ronda Rousey's gold. Here I will be counting the 30 possible entrants in this year's Royal Rumble match. 

From the NXT UK Women's Division:

NXT UK Women's
NXT UK Women's

#30. Toni Storm - Toni Storm just won the NXT UK Women's Championship. Not only that, she recently won the 2nd annual Mae Young Classic as well. She had her main roster debut at WWE Evolution where she defeated Io Shirai to win the aforementioned tournament. It is fairly certain that WWE will have someone from the UK division and it is more than likely that it will be Storm.

#29. Rhea Ripley - This is uncertain but I want to include her anyway for a couple of reasons. Ripley seems to be on the cusp of breaking into the NXT Women's Main Roster as she is a massively over character in the UK Division. Secondly, she had her NXT UK Women's Championship match cut from the Evolution Card. So her inclusion in the Rumble just might be WWE's way of making it up to her.
