Who will be the 11 surprise entrants in the Women's Royal Rumble?
With only 19 regular superstars set to compete, there will be 11 surprises in the inaugural Women's Royal Rumble...but who?
A Royal Rumble match wouldn't be complete without a few surprise entrants, and ever since the Women's Royal Rumble Match was announced, speculations have been rife as to who would surprise us during the historic affair in Philadelphia. When Kurt Angle announced that the match would feature 30 participants, a lot of surprise entrants were guaranteed.
That's because the main roster only has 22 women, and for obvious reasons, the two champions can't be in the match, leaving the total at 19. This means that we'll need to see 11 surprises in the form of NXT competitors and some returning legends.
Who will they be? With the last set of NXT tapings before the Rumble in the books, we can make some predictions.
One of the women who defined an era and a participant in the first women's main event on RAW, an appearance from Lita is likely. Her relationship with the company is robust, as seen when she was selected as a commentator for the Mae Young Classic just this past summer. I doubt she'd want to miss this even more important occasion.
