The annual Royal Rumble Premium Live Event will take place on Saturday, January 29, 2022. One of the most exciting nights on the WWE calendar will take place live from The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
On the January 7 episode of SmackDown, the company announced a number of competitors who would be competing, including Kelly Kelly, Michelle McCool, and IMPACT Knockouts World Champion Mickie James.
Of course, as the event draws closer, the WWE Universe will plan who they think will win the Royal Rumble match. The winner of the match will head to WrestleMania in Dallas and compete for a world title.
As of this writing, Becky Lynch is the current RAW Women’s Champion and Charlotte Flair is the current SmackDown Women’s Champion.
In recent years, since the introduction of the Women’s Royal Rumble match in 2018, Asuka, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair have won the prestigious contest.
With that said, let’s take a look at five WWE Superstars who could unexpectedly win the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match.
#5. WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair could become a two-time Royal Rumble winner
Charlotte Flair stated on the January 7 episode of SmackDown that she will be participating in the Women’s Rumble match. The Queen declared that she would become the first champion to win the match and would choose her own opponent for WrestleMania.
Well, what if that happened? It is a scenario that we have not seen before in WWE. It would be unique to see exactly how it would all play out. The company would have the opportunity to create something special for WrestleMania.
A victory for Charlotte at the Rumble could lead to a unification match with whoever is the RAW Women’s Champion. This could give The Queen a chance to unify the titles, something she was unable to do at WrestleMania 35.
Winning the Rumble a second time could also help create some drama on SmackDown. There aren’t too many notable fights on the blue brand among the women’s roster. Perhaps a female superstar could goad Charlotte into a fight for her ‘Mania spot?
Whatever happens, it would be a rare situation, but one that can potentially generate a lot of intrigue.
