This is amazing news, of course, and it opens the door not just for a bunch of surprise blasts from the past, a slew of big opportunities for NXT Superstars, and perhaps an even bigger surprise or two. The women’s Royal Rumble match is now much, much more of a wild card than the men’s match.
As more and more women declare for the Rumble, you can expect that the favorite or favorites to win will begin shifting on a very dramatic and abrupt scale. When we last checked in, the initial betting odds had picked a favorite who isn’t even signed to WWE yet. Now the odds-on favorite is at least someone under contract … but not by much.
