News and Notes On Superstars In The Women's Royal Rumble Match

As noted, RAW General Manager Kurt Angle confirmed last night that the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match will have 30 Superstars, just like the men's match.

WWE currently has 22 active female Superstars on the main roster but at least 2 of those will not be competing - RAW Women's Champion Alexa Bliss and SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair. Unless Flair and Bliss work singles matches at the Rumble, that leaves 10 non-main roster spots for the match.

There's been speculation on WWE NXT Superstars or former Superstars being used as surprise entrants in the match. Superstars confirmed for the match as of this writing include Asuka, Paige, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Naomi, Ruby Riott and Natalya. That leaves 21 open spots for the match as of this writing.

Active female Superstars on the main roster include Becky Lynch, Carmella, Flair, Lana, Liv Morgan, Naomi, Natalya, Nikki Bella, Riott, Sarah Logan, Tamina Snuka, Bliss, Alicia Fox, Asuka, Bayley, Dana Brooke, Rose, Mickie James, Nia Jax, Paige, Banks and Deville. Maryse and Maria Kanellis are both on the roster but they are pregnant.
