The pros and cons of a Women's Royal Rumble
Although the announcement was badly botched (there was no reason why the women should have stood there, their hostilities evaporated, and looking gooey), there's no denying that last night's reveal was a very big deal. It's hard to hide what this means for the women of the WWE, who were overjoyed.
As good as this can potentially be, there are some major concerns. As displayed last night in the botched announcement, WWE can easily ruin this, much as they did the first women's Money in the Bank match in June.
If WWE is wise, they'll maximise the strengths of this match while minimising the weaknesses. With that in mind, we need to look objectively at the pros and cons of a women's Royal Rumble.
