For most of 2017, there has been one rumor that constantly simmered: the Women's Royal Rumble.

Casting herself as the bastion of equality as usual, Stephanie McMahon made the announcement following a chaotic conclusion to the third hour's main event pitting Sasha Banks, Bayley and Mickie James against Paige's dominant new trio Absolution.

Speaking with ESPN on Monday evening, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon, who has obviously been a big supporter of the women's division for a long time, was thrilled about the groundbreaking match, which will take place on January 28, three decades after the inaugural Royal Rumble that aired on January 24, 1988. Even more, the historical match will carry the same stipulate as for the men's event; the victor get's their ticket punched for a WrestleMania championship opportunity.

-Whether, like the men's match, this will be an over the top battle royal.

The sheer amount of women performers on the WWE roster at the moment means the company will be able to hold the match with anywhere from 20 to 30 competitors, which is a far cry from the measly 30-second tag matches the company was affording women on TV just two years ago.

This year, WWE created the first-ever women's tournament, Mae Young Classic, which included 32 of the top female competitors from 16 countries, underscoring the breadth and global diversity of women in sports entertainment. Also in partnership with Mattel, WWE unveiled the first-ever Fashion Doll line featuring its female Superstars.
