Charlotte Flair Wins The Women's Royal Rumble
Charlotte Flair punched her card to Wrestlemania by winning the women's Royal Rumble and securing a world title shot on April 4th, by last eliminating Shayna Baszler.
In just the third ever women's Rumble, the Queen was victorious as she outlasted 29 other superstars on the way to her first victory in the match.
Alexa Bliss started as number one in the match, the hardest number to draw, and was joined by NXT Bianca Belair as number two.
The EST of NXT went on an absolute tear through the match and eliminated eight of her opposing competitors, absolutely smashing the previous record of five.
Belair got rid of Bliss, Mighty Molly, Nikki Cross, Mandy Rose, Candice LeRae, Sonya Deville Dana Brooke and Tamina during her long spell in the match.
She was finally the 16th woman eliminated by Flair but by the time she'd been sent over the top rope Belair had made a name for herself as a star of the future.

The former two time NXT champion attacked Flair, who was out of the ring but not eliminated, before even entering the match and picked up eight eliminations of herself.
In her short spell in the match Baszler got rid of Naomi, Beth Phoenix, Toni Storm, Xia Li, Zelina Vega, Shotzi Blackheart, Carmella and Tegan Nox.
She got down to the final two but was eventually eliminated by Flair who celebrated in traditional fashion by pointing to the Wrestlemania sign.
Flair now joins Asuka and Becky Lynch as having won the Women's Rumble, which was only introduced in 2018, and can choose either the Smackdown or Raw title to compete for in Florida in April.
