During WWE Backstage on FS1, a surprise entrant was confirmed for the Women’s WWE Royal Rumble match.
The panel made their predictions on who would win the match and Paige picked Bianca Belair. Renee Paquette also predicted that Belair would win the match and Booker T said that he thinks the winner will be Rhea Ripley.
Dave Meltzer reported last week that Ripley is officially part of the main roster as of a couple of weeks ago but they held off on her debut for a couple of weeks.
Internally, Ripley is considered to be one of the favorites to win the Women’s Rumble match. It is not known if Vince McMahon has made a decision on who will win the match. Ripley was scheduled to move up to the main roster last year and there were big plans for her but those plans were put on hold.
