The 2024 Royal Rumble will take place this Saturday 27th January from Tropicana Field in Florida (the home of the Tampa Bay Rays). This is the second Royal Rumble to take place from the venue, with the 2021 Royal Rumble taking place from the event, albeit it was known as the “Thunderdome” with no paid attendance at the event. On the card there will be two Royal Rumble matches, a men’s and a women’s Royal Rumble. This guide will preview the women’s match.

As there has been a lot fewer women’s matches, there’s a lot of wrestlers who can set all time records, especially as the two women who currently hold the records are unlikely to be in the match.

Of the statistically fascinating entrants is Bianca Belair. A bit of a long shot, but if she eliminates more than 7 participants, she will take the crown as the biggest threat in women’s Royal Rumble history, overtaking Rhea Ripley’s average 5 eliminations per Royal Rumble.

Bianca Belair also, along with Natalya could become the longest cumulative women in the Royal Rumble. With Charlotte Flair ruled out due to injury and champion Rhea Ripley unlikely to be in the match, providing who lasts longest (and if they last more than 4 minutes), they are likely to overtake Charlotte’s cumulative time of 2:21:35 to cement top spot. Belair, however, would have done it in 4 matches, Natalya 7. If I was a betting man, with Bianca Belair being Iron Woman in three consecutive Royal Rumbles, I’d say she’d take the top spot.

Speaking of Natalya. She will compete in her 7th Royal Rumble match. Of the female roster to be on 6: Liv Morgan and Tamina could match her on 7. Dana Brooke – if she was a surprise entrant – could also match her.

At the time of writing only six women have been announced as competing in the match, however of names that are potentially going to be in the match Chelsea Green could break or set another record. She currently is the only person to be in multiple Royal Rumbles and have less than a minute cumulative time. She will have to last 21 seconds, which would be a record for her. If she does last 21 seconds and doesn’t eliminate anybody in that time then she will likely lose her place as the most efficient female Royal Rumble participant with one elimination every 17 seconds. The female record holder would then go to Chyna, albeit her eliminations came in the men’s Royal Rumble match. Looking at participants who competed exclusively in Women’s matches, Chelsea Green could still hold the record as Trish Stratus holds the current record of 1 elimination every minute and 46 seconds.

Another former name that could compete in the Royal Rumble, Asuka – if she has more than 2 eliminations – will enter the top 10 of most eliminations, as can Becky Lynch. Furthermore, Nia Jax, who has been announced, could cement her position in the top 5 of the most eliminations, though both Bayley and Natalya could overtake her.

As far as predictions? I feel that either Bayley or Becky Lynch will likely win the match. Both have intriguing storylines on the road to Wrestlemania: Bayley with the collapse of Damage CTRL and Becky to set up the money match with Rhea Ripley. Given that, I suspect Becky will become a two time Royal Rumble winner. Who do you think will win the women’s Royal Rumble match? Leave your guesses in the comments below.
