A recent report suggests that NXT Superstars have been told that there will be 9 participants in the Women’s Royal Rumble match from NXT. It is now time to speculate on the 9 names who I think could be participating in the match.
Names that I consider locks:
- 1) Ember Moon
- 2) Peyton Royce
- 3) Billie Kay
- 4) Nikki Cross
Not locks, but seem very likely to me:
- 5) Shayna Baszler – I think big things are in store for Baszler in NXT. I think WWE will want to showcase her in the Women’s Rumble match. The Ronda connection also helps.
- 6) Kairi Sane – Meltzer says that she is ‘banged up’ at the moment. Hopefully, she is good to go for the Rumble. If she is good to go, she will be in this match.
- 7) Candice LeRae – She has officially signed with WWE according to a recent report. I think WWE will want to showcase her here as she will likely be a top star down in NXT over the next several months.
Now, it gets interesting. If WWE is using 9 from NXT, here are our remaining picks:
- 8) Bianca Belair
- 9) Either Taynara Conti or Lacey Evans.
