Quote WWE sources suggest that a women's Royal Rumble has a good chance of happening, perhaps as early as next year and definitely within the next couple of years. However, when asked about a Royal Rumble featuring NXT stars to take place on Royal Rumble weekend, the source said that is very unlikely to happen.
 
It would depend on the people involved because two on the same night could be too much.
 
Say the women have a 15 person event, will people complain that the women are only seen as half as good?
 
I can't say i'm particularly interested in a female version of this match.

If you have two Rumble matches you'll start to saturate the impact of it. By all means do a Womens version, but could it be done better as a Battle Royal rather than a Royal Rumble?

I've already shown that with a few guest spots for people like say Rousey and the horsewomen, as well as 1 night returns for Trish Stratus, Lita and the like plus a few call-ups from NXT it would be exceedingly easy to get to 30 women. 20 women however might be a sweet spot simply because of time constraints.

If there are two Royal Rumble matches, and each of them lasts a minimum of 2 minutes per entry, then that's 1 hour and likely 20 minutes or so for the one match, multiply that event by 2 and we're talking pushing 3 hours just for 2 matches if it's 30 competitors per Rumble and 2 minutes per entry. For that reason alone I would say 20 women and each royal rumble match drops down to the 90 second per entry like they have sometimes done in the past.

That would drop the time for the 2 Rumble matches combined to roughly an hour and 45 minutes maybe 2 full hours, and that's much more palatable. 

Otherwise I'd love to see a full 30 woman Royal Rumble match. Alternatively if they dropped the entry time to 1 minute they could easily fit 30 people, but I think that'd just feel too rushed and ruin the PPV event completely.

I guess the next question is, do we also get women's title matches during that event prior to the Royal Rumble? Seems like whoever the champions are, they should be on the card, yet not in the match right?

For the record: Asuka should win the Royal Rumble and she is my pick, right here an now.

I see no reason to add another Rumble match

Theyve had spots in rumbles where some dominant women have entered and scored a few eliminations - Chyna and Awesome Kong spring to mind instantly

Perhaps they could have a few more women enter the normal rumble as opposed to creating another one

At this rate with all the effort in creating this equality amongst the roster, they will end up with two completely separate federations or at least a Women only weekly tv show (replacing 205 live)

I wish they would get their own show. Quite frankly at least once I would love to see a woman's royal rumble, I don't know about every year, but once? fuck yeah!

"Remember that year they had the women's royal rumble?"
"Yeah that was crazy!"

"Remember that year Ric Flair won the title by winning the Rumble?"
"Best rumble ever!"

"Remember that year they had 40 men in the rumble?"
"Fuck ADR!"
