History will soon be made, and WWE Superstar Naomi will be a big part of it.
The inaugural WWE Women’s Royal Rumble is Sunday, Jan. 28 live on WWE Network from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, and Noami is very much looking forward to this historic event -- the next step in the evolution of the revolution of women’s wrestling.
A former two-time SmackDown champion, Naomi is one of the talented women helping lead the current surge in women’s wrestling on a larger platform.
She and her cohorts are proving women can do whatever their male counterparts can, capturing the attention and respect of fans who enjoy the action-packed and entertaining matchups.
Thus, the winner of the Women’s Royal Rumble receives a title shot at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans -- just like the men.
A former Orlando Magic dancer, Naomi regained the SmackDown women’s title from Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania 33 in 2017 in her hometown Orlando. Natalya beat her for the belt at SummerSlam.
Naomi wants to wear the gold again, glow style, and a Royal Rumble victory can assure her that shining moment opportunity.
The start time for the WWE Royal Rumble card is 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT.
