In 2018, we all got to witness Asuka gloriously win the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble match. Three years later and the women are ready to steal the spotlight again.
Previously, Asuka, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair have outlasted 30 other stars and gained the opportunity to challenge for a title of their choosing.
The Royal Rumble is certainly one of WWE’s best stipulations and shows in full, and all have the legendary Pat Patterson to thank for that.
As we await the next edition of wacky wrestling drama, let’s take a look at 10 WWE stars who could win the 2021 women’s Royal Rumble.
Ding Dong, Hello! Obviously, Bayley will be on a list to win the Royal Rumble. She has been one of the biggest and best heels during the pandemic era of wrestling.
Plus, her rivalry with Sasha Banks felt like someone turning a light switch off. Their Hell in a Cell clash was one of WWE’s best matches last year.
However, they just reluctantly moved on after that, occasionally facing in tag team action, but that is only because SmackDown has a small women’s division and Banks wants her hands on Carmella.
Well, if Bayley wins the Rumble, they’d have to square-up again in the final bout at WrestleMania. A perfect stage for their revolution. Speaking of revolution… Bayley has a higher chance of winning than most of them just for being a notorious Four Horsewomen member.
Lynch and Charlotte have both done it. The ‘Legit Boss’ is the champion, the blueprint, the standard as she often says. Which leaves out poor Bayley.
9. Shayna Baszler
Shayna Baszler should perhaps have achieved this impressive victory last year, but instead, WWE made her decimate every soul inside the Elimination Chamber, lose to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania, and she hasn’t done anything notable since.
She may be in a team with Nia Jax, previously holding the Women’s Tag Team Championship, but she just isn’t the frightening ‘Queen of Spades’ she once was.
Therefore, a win in the Royal Rumble could put her on the right track. WWE has a great track record of starting pushes either too early or too late, and as they always say, it’s “better late than never”.
Baszler is certainly the type of athlete that would thrive in a storyline that sees her destroy everyone and win the title, embarking on an undefeated streak to terrorise the roster for months on end.
She isn’t a difficult person to book, they just have to go all-in with her. If not, then they’ll probably choose her partner to win…
8. Nia Jax
Nia Jax wouldn’t be the most surprising woman to point at the WrestleMania sign with pride and glory.
She has had many notable moments in the Rumble bouts, including her huge appearance in the men’s Rumble two years ago, being RKO’d by Randy Orton in entertaining fashion.
Jax may not be the most popular member of WWE’s women’s division, but the company seems to be a fan so it wouldn’t at all be a shock if she was to win the Rumble.
