Ryback Talks Possible Women's Royal Rumble

On the latest episode of the Conversation With The Big Guy podcast, Ryback discussed the possibility of a Women's Royal Rumble.

With the return of Paige and the main roster call-ups of NXT stars Ruby Riot, Mandy Rose and others, many have speculated that the WWE is building towards the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble at January's pay-per-view. Ryback said he's not sure the company has enough women on the roster to be able to make the match work.

"I don't think it's a bad idea by any means," he said. "I don't think they have the roster to do it yet, but that is such a time-consuming match. It's usually like an hour long, maybe a bit longer. If you start with the Women's Royal Rumble, have a couple matches in there and then the men's, I mean, it can work, they can make anything work. I get it, but not everything is like---wrestling is pre-dominantly male. There are more men in it than women. You don't have to have to do that. Women are highlighted and featured just as much as the men, there's just less of them. They are highlighted way more on different things. They have their own TV show with Total Divas. I'm all for them having opportunities, and if they can make it work, great, but it seems rushed. It's right around the corner, and there's not 30 women."

It's likely that the WWE can pull wrestlers that participated in this summer's Mae Young Classic to fill out the number of women to compete in the match. It's also likely that, as with any Royal Rumble match, there will be surprises like returning legends and debuting superstars.

"I have no idea what they are going to do with it," Ryback said. "If they are going to do it, the Royal Rumble is always a minimum of 30 people, and they can do whatever they want to do, but I don't see them having the roster yet to do it, but you never know. Whatever they choose to do is their choice."

Thanks to Doric Sam for the quotes.
