Kairi Sane, Rhea Ripley, Io Shirai & More NXT Stars Invade Women’s Royal Rumble Match
Posted On August 5, 2021
While the annual Royal Rumble match(es) have seen a long history of wrestling’s greatest legends return to the ring, this year WWE opted to go a different route for the 2019 incarnation of their January classic.
Instead of surprise returns from veteran legends and Hall of Famers, WWE opted to feature several talents from the NXT brand as well as competitors in the 2018 Mae Young Classic who have yet to debut on television.
The list of shocking call-ups includes former NXT Women’s Champion Kairi Sane, who entered the bout at #14 and was closely followed by developmental talent Kacy Catanzaro of American Ninja Warrior fame at #15.
Also involved in the Rumble were former NXT UK Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley who scored three huge eliminations, developmental talent Xia Li, Candice LeRae, and the Japanese phenom Io Shirai.
