WWE Royal Rumble 2019 Result: Becky Lynch Wins Women’s Royal Rumble Match
Last night, 30 women superstars battled it out to lock in the main event spotlight at Wrestlemania. It was for the second time only that the female superstars competed in an exclusive Royal Rumble match for them. The anticipation was much bigger with the tradition that started from last year onwards to carry the women’s Evolution forward.
To start things off at Women’s Royal Rumble, NXT recruit Lacey Evans entered to surprise the audience. Natalya was the second pick to begin the match with Lacey who claimed to be the true lady of the WWE. Mandy Rose entered at number 3 to gang up on Nattie. But the Queen of Harts locked in double Sharpshooters on Morgan and Mandy! Liv Morgan entered and got eliminated by Natalya, immediately in the opening sequences of the Royal Rumble match.

Billie Kay was up at number seven who decided to stay outside the ring instead of entering the Royal Rumble ring! Nikki Cross entered next and took her out. She jumped on everybody inside the ring to stand tall as the match progressed. Peyton Royce was up next to attack Nikki who took out her buddy Billie Kay.
The first surprise entrance of the match was Xia Li from NXT at number 11 spot. She took out almost everyone inside the ring after entering the Royal Rumble match. Charlotte entered at number 13 spot as the IIconics eliminated Nikki Cross taking revenge from early beatdowns. Maria Kanellis made her return at number 15! Naomi entered at number 16 and targeted Mandy Rose. Eventually, they both eliminated each other.
Ruby Riott entered at number 21 with the Riott Squad thrashing people from outside. They made a big impact to let Ruby control the Royal Rumble match. Io Shirai was another surprise at number 23 who took out the Riott Squad right away. Rhea Ripley was another surprise at number 24 who put up quite the show during the match.
Meanwhile, Hornswoggle showed up underneath the ring causing the elimination of Zelina Vega who was also hiding there. Lana got the number 28 but never entered the match due to her leg injury from earlier the night. So Becky Lynch entered the match confronting Nia Jax that received a huge pop from the crowd. She eventually eliminated Nia with the help of Charlotte Flair.
These two were the final twos in the women’s Royal Rumble match. Nia Jax took a cheap shot to injure Becky’s legs before elimination. But Becky Lynch still fought valiantly against The Queen. In the end, Charlotte Flair missed a big boot and went through the top rope to let Becky Lynch win the Royal Rumble match. She will now go on to challenge any of her choosing an opponent at Wrestlemania 35.
