For the first time, WWE will host an all-women's Royal Rumble battle, which features 30 wrestlers in a free-for-all over-the-top-rope elimination match that moves the victor into a high-profile title bout.

Prediction: If WWE is smart, they'll kick off the Royal Rumble pay-per-view with this match. In every Rumble match there's a ton of speculation regarding how Superstars will be eliminated, who will eliminate them and who will work together, and these surprises are usually nearly always better when they go against expectations.

"Get the most important statistics, facts and figures before the 2018 Royal Rumble event", the caption of the clip reads.

The video also reveals that Rey Mysterio is the only one who has managed to hang in the ring for a record time of 62 minutes and 12 seconds to win the 2006 Royal Rumble match. Fans are eagerly waiting to see the "Cenation" leader make history by winning the coveted match for the third time.

And, out of the 52 wrestlers, only 9 have won the Royal Rumble to add to their legendary resumes, while 6 superstars have won the elimination match twice.

On Friday, three matches were announced for Sunday's Kickoff Show.

The former UFC women's bantamweight champion has been linked with a move to the wrestling world ever since her cameo appearance at Wrestlemania 31. The victor will get a shot at one of those championships at WrestleMania 34.

Can Randy Orton replicate his victory at last year's Royal Rumble this Sunday night?
