The most shocking name was former five-time WWE women’s champion, Mickie James. The ‘shock’ element here is that Mickie is currently in a contract with IMPACT Wrestling and is the Impact Knockout’s champion over there.

Another surprise was the entry of the WWE Hall of Famers, The Bella Twins (Nikki Bella and Brie Bella) into the Royal Rumble.

WWE is not taking any risks for Royal Rumble PPV

Fightful Select has recently reported that more ‘big’ names will be added into the women’s Royal Rumble match, and the company will hit some nostalgic buttons of the WWE Universe.

Previously, the company has surprised the audience when they included superstars like Awesome Kong, Trish Stratus, and Lita.

The fans couldn’t help but wonder who will be these “big” names. With the company opening the ‘forbidden doors’ for the first time, it is only a matter of time that old school female wrestlers like Mickie James, Melina, and many others will come back.

Eventually, the fans also speculate that various superstars from the Attitude Era and the Ruthless Era will also make their comeback to the company.

One such example is the addition of The Undertaker’s wife, Michelle McCool, who has also been announced for the PPV.
