To add the Women of WWE had their first ever match in Abu Dhabi just weeks ago.

The first Royal Rumble Pay Per View took place nearly 30 years ago in 1988, and while a woman has never won the traditional Royal Rumble Over the top rope style match, three women have indeed appeared in Royal Rumble Matches over the years, Chyna in 1999, Beth Phoenix in 2010 and Awesome Kong in 2012. As noted by WWEs website, the match does not have a total as of yet in terms of competitors, but will feature the women of both the Smackdown and RAW brands. The Winner of the match will receive a championship opportunity at WrestleMania 34. Several of WWEs Women’s Superstars, including faces of the past, reacted to the announcement made just last night by Stephanie McMahon.
