PHOTOS, VIDEOS: Ronda Rousey's WWE Debut, Women's Royal Rumble Winner, Surprise Entrants

A look back to when Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman collided for the first time ever in the Royal Rumble Match in 2016

But of course, the elephant in the room is whether or not we'll see "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey in the Royal Rumble. American Alpha worked, but this feels like a retread and he's way too soon to retread a team that just broke up this past spring.

The mystery surrounding his opponent could be for a surprise - maybe ECIII? - and if it's a debuting wrestler, I'd expect the debuting wrestler to win the belt. But it's also important for all of us - not just as Black women, but just as women, period - to showcase who we are and represent for women of all ethnicities, races and colors. If that's the case, then Roode retais.

The Revival are now poised to take the tag team division by storm. Cross in the women's rumble is still a possibility, which makes it the more interesting match overall.

Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan vs. Sheamus and Cesaro for the Raw Tag Titles: The big question is whether Rollins accidentally hitting Jordan with a knee on Monday is setting up the makeshift team's quick demise or if it was just a nice tease that they can go back to prior to future title defenses. The only problem as wrestling observer John Perkins told the Toronto Sun about the 30 women rope challenge: "I can only count 20 women, they'll likely fill the card from NXT". And how were they eliminated? He eventually achieved his goal and the championship by defeating former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal in a tournament to determine a new US Champion.

It sounds simple, but if you're a die-hard fan, you'll know that for every AJ Styles and Kevin Owens main roster success story, there's a Sami Zayn, Shinsuke Nakamura or Bayley to point to.

Kavita Devi made a fantastic impression when she made her WWE debut in the Mae Young Classic tournament. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, because that's what Vince McMahon does. I think I'll at least take five seconds and then make my way down. WWE doesn't want Strowman getting beat. So instead of guessing who will face Brock Lesnar (assuming he retains tonight) for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania, we can look forward to a great match with A.J. Styles.

But regardless, Lesnar is winning beacuse he's losing to Reigns.


Now we're all pretty sure that Roman Reigns is going to be in the Royal Rumble after all of us saw him lose his IC title at the 25th-anniversary show. That was the end of the show, but apparently not the end of her journey with the company.

Rousey's Instagram had been relatively inactive (four posts in four months). Despite attempts throw fans off the scent on social media, once it was confirmed that the women's Rumble was head-lining the show it became pretty clear what was going down.

After Japanese star Shinsuke Nakamura won the men's version, all eyes turned to WWE's women who main evented the Royal Rumble PPV.

Asked whether she thought someone like NXT star Shayna Baszler or MMA icon Ronda Rousey could come down the ramp during the Rumble, Flair wouldn't entirely rule it out.

On Jan. 24, 1988 at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, ON, the world was introduced to the "Royal Rumble", won by Jim (Hacksaw) Duggan. Not even an appearance by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was enough to sway the crowd.

This is going to be a repeat reaction.

The victor of the Men's Royal Rumble Match will face either the Universal Champion or the WWE Champion at WrestleMania 34 and the victor of the Women's Royal Rumble Match will face either the RAW Women's Champion or the SmackDown Women's Champion at WrestleMania 34.
