This week on Monday Night Raw, Raw commissioner Stephanie McMahon made a major announcement that will change the way we see Women's wrestling forever.

McMahon appeared during the six-woman tag team match after it devolved into a brawl and announced that WWE would be making history with the first-ever Women's Rumble.

Ever since the Women's Revolution happened on "Raw" in 2015, female superstars have been taking WWE by storm and revolutionized the wrestling industry. Paige carried her NXT Women's Title until jumping right to the main roster where she defeated AJ Lee for the WWE Diva's Championship on the night after WrestleMania XXX.

The month starts on January 4th with New Japan Pro Wrestling's huge Wrestle Kingdom card (Okada vs Naito and Omega vs Jericho fuck me all the way up god damn), and ends towards the end of the calendar month with the WWE's always chaotic, fan favourite Royal Rumble event.

US Republicans confident tax bill will become law this week
Health insurance mandate: The insurance requirement under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the law known as Obamacare, is abolished. The deduction that millions use in connection with state and local income, property and sales taxes would be capped at $10,000.

Since then, WWE has placed a greater emphasis on its female stars, including recruiting talent from around the world.

In addition, earlier this month, WWE Superstars Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss wrestled in the first women's match in the Middle East, and this summer in partnership with Mattel, WWE unveiled the first Fashion Doll line featuring its female Superstars.

It's been a long-time coming - can't wait for the FIRST EVER WOMEN'S Royal Rumble! WWE programming reaches more than 650 million homes worldwide in 20 languages.

The Royal Rumble takes place on January 28th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and airs live on WWE Network.
