Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon made the massive announcement on the December 18 edition of Raw, declaring that female WWE Superstars will compete for a championship opportunity at WrestleMania 34.

These two matches are the 30-man Royal Rumble and the triple threat main event match of Brock Lesnar, Braun Strowman, and Kane for the Universal Championship, which was announced earlier in the show.

The Raw and SmackDown divisions will compete in the first women's Royal Rumble next month, WWE has confirmed. Women such as Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Bayley, collectively known as The Four Horsewomen, showed viewers that they could put on just as good of a show as their male counterparts and even began headlining pay-per-view events, highlighted by a great rivalry with Banks and Bayley.

As she stood in the center of the ring, Steph listed all of the groundbreaking things the women have done over the past few years.

The biggest question is who will win the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble match?

Take Boise State over OR in an upset special
The Las Vegas Bowl is the first matchup of bowl season and it quite possibly could be the game that features the best uniforms. Oregon didn't just win three of four, the Ducks blew out teams like Utah, Arizona and in-state rival Oregon State.

The "Billion Dollar Princess" Stephanie McMahon returned to Monday Night Raw this week to drop an absolute BOMBSHELL of an announcement. Female performers are role models, inspiring and empowering women and girls to be confident and strong. It's been a long-time coming - can't wait for the FIRST EVER WOMEN'S Royal Rumble!

With the addition of Absolution and Riott Squad, WWE now has enough women on the main roster to pull off the long talked about the idea of holding a Women's Royal Rumble Match.

This comes as huge news for not just women's wrestling, but professional wrestling as a whole.
