As we noted earlier this week, Becky Lynch announced she is the final Smackdown entrant in the Rumble match, leaving only Alicia Fox and Dana Brooke as yet to be announced main roster talents for the over the top rope bout. Both Charlotte Flair and Alexa Bliss are ineligible for the match as they are the Smackdown and Raw Women’s Champions, respectively. There, of course, is the usual speculation that surprise names will be part of the Rumble match, and those rumored names include Ronda Rousey, former WWE Divas Michelle McCool and Molly Holly and more.
