More Details on Possible Women's Royal Rumble Match; NXT Call-Ups
Saturday, December 2, 2017
For the past few weeks, there has been a lot of speculation about a Women's Royal Rumble Match possibly happening at next month's Royal Rumble PPV. Nothing has been planned or talked about yet and a go signal hasn't been given yet, but the belief is that if the match does happen, it will likely be a 20-Woman Royal Rumble Match. The other question is if having a Women's Royal Rumble immediately before a Men's Royal Rumble would be overkill as the match would need to be at least 30 minutes in length.
It was previously reported that all the recent NXT Women being called up probably points to a Royal Rumble Match, but the real reason they were brought up is because WWE officials felt that with the same women being used through the matches, there was a certain sameness and boringness to the divisions and the call-ups will shake things up.
