— There has been talk of having the women’s Royal Rumble match go on last, which would seem to suggest that there will be some sort of significant impact coming out of that match. Stephanie McMahon announcing is also lends credence to that. Ronda Rousey is an obvious candidate but she has been pushing on social media that she is in Colombia, which makes it unlikely but not impossible that she will be in the match.

— WWE is reportedly going to be pushing a new concept for the winner of the Royal Rumble matches – whoever wins will be able to select which champion (on either brand) that they want to face at WrestleMania 34 – not just the champion of their brand. This would seem to open up way more possibilities of winners, as someone like Finn Balor could win and then face AJ Styles at WrestleMania.

— Multiple NXT women are still in town, likely as possible entrants in the Royal Rumble. At one time, there were rumored to be nine NXT performers that were to be included in the match, but that was weeks ago.
