WWE ex-wrestler Molly Holly was interviewed by the news portal WrestlingInc.com and ruled out her participation in the women’s real battle to be held this weekend at Royal Rumble 2018. The funny thing is that several people told her that she had been announced to participate and she had to call WWE to resolve the problem.
“My friends’ kids were texting me and they’re like, ‘I saw on the internet that you’re gonna be in the Royal Rumble.’ I was like, ‘I am?! Oh my gosh! Where does it say this?'” Holly said. “So I start looking like, is this like something that they just forgot to tell me?
“So then, I actually called, because I was like, ‘Am I gonna be?’ So then I called the WWE, and I was like, ‘Is this like a thing?’ And they were like, ‘Oh, fans are predicting who’s gonna be in the Rumble.’ I was like, ‘oh, I’m sorry. I’m like embarrassed.’ I’m just a mark who believes everything that’s on the Internet. But, for a second, I was like ‘Ah crap! I don’t have enough time. I need months to prepare!’ But then it’s not even true, so it was nice enough that the fans cared enough to start a rumor. So, that’s cool.”
At this time, 18 WWE superstars from the official list of participants that will participate in the Royal Battle. Here’s the list of confirmed women: Naomi, Asuka, Natalya, Ruby Riott, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Carmella, Tamina Snuka, Lana, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan, Mickie James, Nia Jax, Becky Lynch , Dana Brooke, Alicia Fox and 12 participants to be announced.
