The number 30 spot in the Royal Rumble match is often reserved for a big return or one of WWE’s biggest stars to give the end of the match a special atmosphere.
Having said that, this isn’t always the case, and it’s definitely not the case this year for the women’s Rumble, because for whatever reason, WWE has decided that the number 30 spot will be going to either Natalya or Tamina.

There have been no reports as to why Natalya and Tamina were chosen for this spot, and judging by social media, more than a few people have been left completely confused by this decision.
Of course, it could be a red herring, and perhaps Natalya will win and then that could set up something like a Ronda Rousey return, but that’s grasping at straws.
WWE previously promised to reveal who would be starting the women’s match, and also who would be 30th in the men’s match, but as usual, plans seem to have changed. Either way, tune in to WWE Backstage tonight to find out more news on the Rumble entrants.
