Ronda Rousey Stephanie McMahon WrestleMania 34 Royal Rumble 2018 @WWE/Twitter

Asuka won the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble, and she’s yet to name her victim opponent on the WWE’s biggest stage, WrestleMania.

According to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, the unbeaten women’s contender is slated to face off against Smackdown Live champion Charlotte, while Nia Jax is pencilled in to fight onscreen buddy Alexa Bliss for the Monday Night Raw women’s belt.

As for former UFC star turned WWE badass Ronda Rousey, the newest member of the Raw roster is apparently set to face off against Triple H and real-life wife Stephanie McMahon in a mixed tag match.

The Rock and Kurt Angle were originally named Rousey’s likely tag partners, but Barrasso brings word that Shane McMahon and Seth Rollins have also been mentioned.

Shane McMahon is currently in a rivalry with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn on Smackdown Live, and Rollins fought Triple H at last year’s ‘Mania, seemingly squashing that rivalry.

The Rock is obviously the preferred name in this scenario, which Barrasso relays, but Angle could also look to get retribution for Triple H’s heel turn on the Raw GM at Survivor Series.
