  • Absolution's assault of Sasha Banks went too far

The main event match of the annual show - now approaching its 31st iteration - is a sprawling, 30-person over the top rope Royal Rumble battle royal (say that ten times quickly) with a championship match at WrestleMania going to the victor.

As reported by WWE.com, Stephanie McMahon made the monumental announcement on Raw this past week.

Stephanie McMahon came out in the closing moments of this week's episode of "Raw" and announced that for the first time in history, there will be a women's "Royal Rumble" match at the upcoming pay-per-view of the same name.

Since then, WWE has placed a greater emphasis on its female stars, including recruiting talent from around the world.

Facebook to add pre-roll ads and other changes to videos
The company said in the blog post that it would no longer includes ads in the middle of videos that are under three minutes. Facebook will show us the videos based on our search history and pages we have liked.

Really, the most common fact that ever seems to come out of this show is that Hacksaw Jim Duggan was the victor of the first Rumble match.

WWE held the first-ever women's Money in the Bank ladder match this past year and also a women's Hell in a Cell match back in 2016.

If WWE surprised everyone with a Ronda Rousey debut in the Women's Royal Rumble match and gave her the victory, it could set up a logical match with Charlotte Flair vs Ronda Rousey as suggested by the rumour mill. The company consists of a portfolio of businesses that create and deliver original content 52 weeks a year to a global audience. The event will be available for you to watch either on PPV or the WWE Network.

So far at next year's Royal Rumble, only two matches had been confirmed for the January 28 pay-per-view which takes place from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
