Ahl Anthony Aggari | Ashley Massaro vs. Mickie James with Trish Stratus as the special guest referee at Royal Rumble 2006. That match was a pure brawl and if you will notice, they didn’t even do an irish whip move or run into the ropes in the whole match. lol. But it was a good match. (WATCH)
Jamie M | Chyna tossing out Mark Henry in the 1999 Royal Rumble (the first female ever entered) and then being tossed out by Stone Cold. Chyna was one of the elite performers during her time. (WATCH)
Josue Guzman | I’d have to say the Stepmother vs. Stepdaughter match between Dawn Marie and Torrie Wilson at Royal Rumble 2003. What made this particular match so memorable was the year build up for it! There was seduction, blackmailing, a wedding and even a funeral; and this was all happening not on Raw but on Smackdown! It’s a nice reminder that if WWE give their women a decent storyline and enough airtime, they can entertain fans regardless of what show they are on or whether they are feuding for a title or not. (WATCH)
@KurtiusMaximus | Kharma‘s return at Royal Rumble 2012. So unexpected and it was fantastic hearing the crowd go wild for a female! (WATCH)
Mathieu Lavigne | The Kat… bubblewrap… at Royal Rumble 2000. (WATCH)
Maximilien Gamot | Mickie James winning the title at Royal Rumble 2010. I know, it’s a dot in the History of Women’s wrestling, but as a Mickie James fan, I was really proud of her. (WATCH)
Michael Kennedy | The Chyna/Hardcore Holly/Jericho match at Royal Rumble 2000. They did good work and it was vastly underrated. I also like how their feud carried over into the Rumble Match itself. (WATCH)
Oliver James Mcgregor | During the Kurt Angle vs Triple H match at Royal Rumble 2001, Trish Stratus interfering, causing Stephanie McMahon Helmsley to yank her out & give her the billion dollar slap, which of course led to an EPIC CATFIGHT which even brought Vince out from backstage to break it up, not that that stopped either girl! (WATCH)
January 2nd, 2003 | The wedding of Dawn Marie and Al Wilson was an event most didn’t wish to witness, not the least of which was Al’s daughter Torrie Wilson. After weeks of antagonizing Torrie while seducing her father, Dawn tied the knot with the much older gentleman, stripping both down to their underwear before they were named man and wife. The wedding went off without a hitch, aside from some disruptive chants from the crowd. Afterwards (though not shown in the video above), Dawn tackled her new husband to the floor and kickstarted their marriage with a wild kiss.
