Asuka, Sasha Banks, Bayley & Mickie James def. Nia Jax, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville & Alicia Fox
This Sunday, one woman will make history as the winner of the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match. And, after the events of Raw 25, it is looking like the historic match might be Asuka’s to lose.
True, The Empress of Tomorrow was technically part of a team victory, as she united with Sasha Banks, Bayley & Mickie James against Nia Jax (one of the other presumptive Rumble favorites), Alicia Fox and Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville of Absolution. But she was the target of a vicious pre-bell attack from her opponents, and while it was The Boss who won the match by forcing Fox to tap to an excruciating Bank Statement, Asuka got the last word of the evening.
As Asuka’s team celebrated the win in the ring, The Empress of Tomorrow struck, tossing James, Bayley and finally Sasha over the top rope, one by one, to leave herself as the last woman standing.
