— NXT talent have been told that nine women from that division will be called up to participate in the Royal Rumble, but no details were revealed on which nine women those would be. If that is the case, that would only leave a couple women from the past to return.

    — With Michelle McCool and Molly Holly reportedly already contacted, that would technically leave only 1 or 2 spots, perhaps more if Paige is ruled out and Dana Brooke doesn’t declare for the match. It should also be worth noting that Alicia Fox, who was one of the first to declare for the Royal Rumble is no longer on the list at WWE.com
