There’s no doubt about it, the Royal Rumble always delivers when it comes to shocking returns – and 2021’s Women’s Royal Rumble Match was no different with Victoria and Torrie Wilson among the shock returns.
While one of WWE’s brightEST young stars in Bianca Belair would outlast the other 29 Superstars to pick up the win, despite spending 56 minutes in the match, several surprise appearances would scintillate the WWE Universe along the way.
Four veterans would make their returns to the ring, as two-time Women’s Champion Victoria led the way, with Torrie Wilson, Jillian Hall, and Alicia Fox all entering the squared circle during the monumental match, too. Meanwhile, Mickie James would also return to the ring following her appearance at RAW Legends Night.
SHE'S STILL GOT IT! 👏 , 👏 , 👏 👏 👏

The veteran Superstars weren’t the only surprises, though, with with several NXT Superstars appearing. Rhea Ripley would dominate the match, to finish as the runner up, while Shotzi Blackheart, Toni Storm, Santana Garrett, Dakota Kai and Ember Moon all made their marks too. Following lengthy spells out of action, Naomi and Lana also made surprise returns during the match.
