» While Rousey was the story in the women's division, Asuka did win a strong first-ever Women's Royal Rumble match. There was a question whether the lack of main roster entrants would hurt, but for the most part the surprise entrants were used well. Former women/divas, including the Bella Twins, Trish Stratus, Lita, Jacqueline, Molly Holly, Torrie Wilson and Kelly Kelly, contributed. Michelle McCool, of all people, might have received the biggest rub, as she eliminated more than any other woman in the match. At the end, Asuka eliminated Nikki Bella to earn the title shot at WrestleMania.
