Charlotte will be looking to win her second straight Rumble having also won the match in 2020. After winning the match last year, Charlotte went on to defeat Rhea Ripley for the NXT Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 36.
She also recently returned from injury, capturing the Women’s Tag Team Championship with Asuka at TLC. This was her first match back having recovered from surgery but many fans have thought it is only a matter of time before she turns her attention to Asuka’s Raw Women’s Championship.
The only people on the men’s side who have declared for the Royal Rumble are Daniel Bryan and Bobby Lashley. The event is set to take place on January 31, 2021.
