What’s one more groundbreaking women’s match? They’ve had great matches at Wrestlemania, they’ve headlined a pay per view and they’ve had a Money in the Bank match. With all those accomplishments, what’s left for the women’s division? Well, how about a Royal Rumble?

Becky Lynch was recently interviewed by the Amarillo Globe-News and was asked about the possibility of a women’s Royal Rumble. Here are Lynch’s comments:

“I think there’ll definitely be a time where the women get their own Royal Rumble. When you look at the fact that in July there is the Mae Young Classic taking place between 32 women. Then you have the women in NXT and the women on both brands. I think it’s a year or two away from having our own Royal Rumble, then maybe our tag titles. The sky is the limit.”

Experience high-flying 360° action from the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match!

While there has never been a full on women’s Royal Rumble, three women (Chyna in 1999, Beth Phoenix in 2010 and Kharma in 2012) have appeared in the traditional Royal Rumble. You can read the full interview here.

Opinion: At this point, I’ve given up on saying something won’t happen with the women’s division. It seems that every time they start mentioning having a match that they’ve never done before, it winds up happening. Therefore, why not do something like this? I’m not sure if they can do a thirty woman version but twenty shouldn’t be that hard to pull off.
