  • Watch Stephanie McMahon Announce WWE's First-Ever Women's Royal Rumble

The sheer amount of women performers on the WWE roster at the moment means the company will be able to hold the match with anywhere from 20 to 30 competitors, which is a far cry from the measly 30-second tag matches the company was affording women on TV just two years ago.

WWE has been hitting out a lot of women's firsts since the start of the women's revolution.

Stephanie McMahon announced on RAW that the 2018 Royal Rumble will host the first ever all-female contest of its kind. Women already on the main roster were forced to step up their game to keep up with these young stars and absolutely delivered. The historic trend continues, and it's a phenomenal time to be a woman in pro wrestling. "They deserve their own match at Royal Rumble", said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer.

'Transgender,' 'fetus,' 'science-based' reportedly on CDC list of banned words
On the list: " diversity ", " fetus ", " transgender ", " vulnerable ", " entitlement ", " science-based " and "evidence-based". Ashish Jha told Stat News, the decision to censor the seven words will likely force staff to self-censor their work.

In addition, earlier this month, WWE Superstars Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss took part in the first-ever women's match in the Middle East. As I said nearly a year ago in an article fighting for this very announcement, this has the opportunity to be something truly special.

This absolutely rules, and means the January 28th card is gonna feature two Rumble matches, which ain't even remotely a bad thing. While not all WWE rumors come to light, this one finally did. What do you say, ladies, you make history once again?

-Whether, like the men's match, this will be an over the top battle royal.
