The Royal Rumble is coming up fast and on January 28th, 2018 the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble will entertain the WWE Universe. This is an exciting match idea for many reasons and the ladies in NXT obviously realize this fact.
After all, there could likely be some empty spots in the Women’s Royal Rumble for ladies from NXT and there have already been a couple to throw their hat in the ring for the big match.
NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon is among those who have shown interest by literally replying, “interesting.” But Nikki Cross is also chomping a the bit to display her unique brand of crazy for the big Philly show.
The NXT roster is going to be in Philadelphia anyway with NXT TakeOver being the night before. Therefore the likelihood we’ll see at least a couple women from NXT show up is pretty good. Then again, MMA’s Horsewomen could always show up at the end with Ronda Rousey winning in quick fashion to set up a WrestleMania 34 encounter with Charlotte Flair because it’s WWE so it’s impossible to predict what they’ll really do.
But this was a historic announcement from Stephanie McMahon and the women of NXT who are close enough to feel the direct vibrations of this groundbreaking announcement obviously want a chance to play as well.
We already know of one major name that is expected to be involved because of a graphic that leaked briefly on Monday night. Click here if you want to know who that person is.
