Fresh off Stephanie McMahon’s groundbreaking and historic announcement that the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match would occur at the Royal Rumble event on Sunday, Jan. 28, streaming live on WWE Network, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair simply wanted to make it clear that she would be ready to defend her title against the winner at WrestleMania 34.
Hearing those words, Naomi hit the scene to let The Queen know that she was going to be the first Superstar on Team Blue to declare for the Women’s Royal Rumble Match and that the titleholder should expect to see her in New Orleans. This prompted The Riott Squad’s arrival, but before Ruby Riott, Sarah Logan or Liv Morgan could get a single word out, Naomi, fed up with the sneak attacks, immediately challenged them to a tag team match, which was accepted.
Riott and Logan answered the call, engaging in a hard-hitting contest against Flair and Naomi. In the height of the action, Liv tried to get involved in the contest by getting up on the apron, but she was knocked off by a surging Logan after Naomi avoided an attack, leading to The Glow picking up the pivotal win with the Rearview.
