We have seen several legends, including the likes of Lita, The Bellas, Michelle McCool, as well as IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion, Mickie James return at Women’s Royal Rumble match, which was eventually won by the returning Ronda Rousey, who entered at #28 and won it after eliminating Charlotte Flair.
We could have also seen some more surprises discussed by WWE but didn’t happen. According to the Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select reported that WWE had considered bringing back Asuka, who hasn’t been in the ring since July last year, and also her former tag team partner and one-time NXT Women’s Champion Kairi Sane for Royal Rumble.

Other names that were discussed internally or contacted for the Rumble: The IInspiration, Lana, Kairi, Asuka. Outside of IInspiration, don’t know how far or realistic any were. Never heard Bayley’s name mentioned as being realistically discussed or pitched
