Additionally, several other Superstars on the poster-most of whom are yet to be announced for either the traditional Royal Rumble matches or other bouts on the card-include Roman Reigns, Jinder Mahal, Rusev, Bobby Roode, The Usos, The New Day, Alicia Fox, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss.
Regardless of who the surprises will consist of, last night confirmed that the WWE universe should expect great unpredictability out of the first-ever all-women's Royal Rumble match. She hasn't wrestled for the company since she lost a "Loser Leaves WWE" match against Layla at Extreme Rules in 2011.

Surprise entrants have become a huge factor and anticipated moment in the Royal Rumble match, and now the same will be able to be said for the women's match.
According to PWInsider's report, Holly is more likely to appear in the women's Royal Rumble than McCool but, as of writing, neither one of them is confirmed by the WWE for the event. Next Tuesday's show will feature Xavier Woods vs. Jinder Mahal with the victor going on to the finals at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, against the victor of Roode vs. Rawley.
