Power Ranking The Women’s Royal Rumble Entrants



With the Rumble fast approaching, Kevin takes a look at the competitors we know of, and Power Ranks them all! Let’s see who number 1 is!

I’m baaaaack!

Last week, as you may recall, I did a column power ranking the participants in the men’s Royal Rumble by who had the best chance of winning, in my eyes.

But we don’t have just ONE Royal Rumble match to dissect. That’s right, for the second consecutive year, the women of RAW and SmackDown will compete in their very own Rumble match!

So, in the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to break down the women’s Rumble in the same way, taking each of the announced competitors and ranking them in terms of who I think has the best shot of taking the whole thing, and punching their ticket to WrestleMania.

Let’s begin, shall we?

Wild Cards: Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss

So just to be brief: Becky Lynch is competing for the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Asuka at the PPV, but every inch of me believes that she will lose that match, and enter the Rumble at #30 to a wild crowd pop.

Charlotte Flair, while many (including myself) expect her to enter the Rumble, hasn’t officially declared her entry into the match at the time of this writing, and Alexa Bliss may be unable to compete due to her recent concussions. Still, if any of these three women make it into the match, I think they would all be considered among the favorites. As it stands, none of them are official, and therefore ineligible to make the official list.

15. Zelina Vega

While Vega has made huge waves as the business partner/manager of Andrade Cien Almas (that will always be his name, I refuse to conform), she hasn’t really been presented as a credible in-ring competitor yet. I think she’s going to have a busy WrestleMania season, but as a manager, not as a competitor for a women’s championship.

14-13. Billie Kay & Peyton Royce

It’s a shame, really, because I think these two have found a nice little niche for themselves over on SmackDown. Unfortunately, that niche seems to be that they’re always getting beat up after running their mouths, but hey, whatever gets you on TV, right?

These two just seem like they’re destined for a short stint in the Rumble, I’ll give the edge to Peyton Royce over Billie Kay just because I think she’s a better overall competitor.

12. Alicia Fox

Poor Foxy, she just doesn’t have much of a chance in this field. Still, I’ll give her a slight advantage over her competitors because she’s crazy, and also has a veteran’s experience and has been in this situation before, unlike a competitor like Vega, who wasn’t in last year’s Rumble.

11-10. Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan

I have a feeling that we might see some intriguing story work out of these two in the match. Do they work together? Does one turn on another? Do they team up on Ruby Riott? Does Riott turn on them? None of the above? It’s pretty enticing.

But as far as actually winning the match goes, I don’t see that in the cards for Morgan or Logan – at least not this year.

9. Mickie James

I’ll use the same veteran argument that I used for Foxy here for Mickie James. She’s been around a long time, she knows how to handle high-pressure situations, she was in this last year, etc.

But I could actually envision storylines that have Mickie James pulling this one out. I don’t think it will happen, but there are plenty of fans out there who would love to see James get one last push, and where better to start that at the Rumble? A pipe dream maybe, but nonetheless, she gets a spot in the Top 10.

8. Naomi

I have a feeling Naomi gets dumped by Mandy Rose here, since they’re so dead set on continuing this highly questionable love triangle story with Jimmy Uso, and that seems like a good way to further the feud, maybe even toward WrestleMania.

So no, I don’t think that Naomi will win. However, she’s got a good history in Battle Royals, winning last year’s WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal, and a potential Naomi-Asuka WrestleMania match would make sense in story, and also would be an absolute banger of a match.

7. Natalya

Another crafty veteran, but one that’s been involved in or around the title picture in recent weeks. We already got Natalya-Rousey on RAW a couple of weeks ago, but wouldn’t it be even better with a few weeks of proper build? Don’t count out the Queen of Harts.

6. Mandy Rose

Like I mentioned earlier, I think that Mandy Rose will get the jump on Naomi and send her packing from this year’s Royal Rumble. But again, I think that Naomi-Mandy should get the WrestleMania treatment, although I wish the storyline were about two women who just flat-out hated each other, rather than a woman trying to break up a marriage just for kicks. That’s kinda messed up.

But Mandy is clearly someone who Vince is high on, and therefore she has to be seen as at least a fringe contender to bring the whole thing home.

5. Carmella

Carmella’s been flirting with the main event scene again for the first time in a few months, just narrowly missing out on the chance to challenge Asuka for the Women’s title, so instead she’ll be competing in the Rumble match to try ad fight her way into a title match at WrestleMania.

But Carmella does, by way of winning the Mixed Match Challenge, have an advantage over the rest of the field: The coveted #30 entry. She’s going to be the freshest competitor in the whole match, and that should play to her opportunism quite well. She’s also been doing quite well as a fan favorite, and would probably get a decent-sized pop if she won, which is important.

4. Bayley

I don’t think she’s going to win. She hasn’t exactly been presented as a threat recently, even though she did pick up a pinfall victory in six-woman action on RAW. But could you imagine if Sasha wins the RAW Women’s Championship, and Bayley wins the Rumble, then we could FINALLY get that Sasha-Bayley WrestleMania dream match that we all deserve.

But, while we will see that match someday, it’s not going to be at WrestleMania. Sorry, everyone.

3. Sonya Deville

I may be stretching out on a limb here, but I’m a HUGE fan of Sonya Deville. I think she’s pretty close to the total package, and should be in line for a push. The best place to start a push is the Royal Rumble, isn’t it?

Even if she doesn’t win, which I don’t think she actually will, she should put on a star-making performance, solidifying herself as one of the top dogs in the SmackDown Women’s division.

2. Ruby Riott

Another superstar who’s basically just waiting on a chance to burst out and become one of the top women in the company. I could actually genuinely see her winning this match, to tell you the truth, one of two women outside of the wild cards that I actually could believe will win.

What will inevitably stand in her way, besides 29 other competitors, is her tie-in with the Riott Squad. I think Ruby either lasts until the Final 4, or takes a surprise exit courtesy of Liv Morgan and/or Sarah Logan. Plenty of interesting ways that story could flesh out.

1. Ember Moon

Give Ember Moon a title shot already! She’s one of the most exciting competitors to watch on either show regardless of gender, the fans love her, and yet she wasn’t even on RAW this week. I actually have a feeling we won’t see her again until the Royal Rumble, giving the fans somewhat of an element of surprise.

But I want her to win. More than Becky and Charlotte and Alexa, who don’t need it to stay in title contention. More than Ruby or Sonya, who may be a year away. Ember Moon is ready for superstardom NOW. Catapult her to the gosh darn moon, have her eliminate six or seven competitors and win the whole thing, going on to WrestleMania to challenge Rousey or Banks or Asuka (!!!). It’s what the people want, and it’s what I want!

There you have it, guys and girls! That’s my list, Do you love it? Did you hate it? Do you wish to have my head examined? Drop a comment!

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?



With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass

Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed

The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!



Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
