As PWMania.com previously reported, several names were announced for the 2022 women’s Royal Rumble match during the January 7th 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown.
There’s a theory going that WWE is working with Impact Wrestling to get back at AEW. This is false, according to RSN. Reports suggest that ‘AEW is in discussions about projects with [John] Laurinaitis.’ WWE wants to use AEW talent for some upcoming documentaries they are doing. They’re playing nice.
Mickie James coming back for the Royal Rumble is an example of a big changing policy in WWE. We were told that when Laurinaitis reached out for her to be in the Rumble, she told him she’s under contract to Impact. Source said, ‘That’s not an issue anymore. No borders.’”
