The rivalry between Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss over the SmackDown’s Women’s Championship quickly became one of the top stories on the show. For the first time ever, the title was on the line inside a Steel Cage on SmackDown. Mickie James’ shock arrival led to a Bliss victory, but the entire Women’s division was the true winner. Lynch and Bliss knocked down another door by competing inside the Steel Cage.

Chyna becomes first women to enter Royal Rumble match

Chyna made history in 1999, entering the Royal Rumble as the 30th participant.

Beth Phoenix and Kharma followed in Chyna’s footsteps in the years that followed. It could be time for the Women’s division to finally get its own Royal Rumble match.
