While Stephanie McMahon has accompanied her husband Triple H to the ring on several occasions for a match at WrestleMania, but she’s never had a match at The Showcase of the Immortals herself.
The Monday Night Raw commissioner last had a match in the WWE at SummerSlam 2014 against Brie Bella. However, in truth, this was at a time where women’s wrestling in the WWE wasn’t as well respected as it is today.
Recently, however, women’s wrestling in the WWE has been making big strides to be on par with men’s wrestling, as the women’s division has now main evented a WWE pay-per-view, had their own Money in the Bank ladder match, and they’ve had their own tournament on the network, the Mae Young Classic.
It was only last month during an episode of Raw as well that Stephanie announced that for the first time ever the women’s division would have their very own 30-women Royal Rumble match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on January 28.
With the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champions not competing, and there only being a certain amount of women on the main roster, there is going to be a couple of spots available in the match for a few NXT superstars and some surprises entrants. One of those surprise entrants for the match that has been speculated is Stephanie McMahon herself.
Stephanie may have backed these rumors through two of her most recent Instagram posts, as the Raw commissioner has posted videos of her working out with the hashtags ‘#NoExcuses #DoTheWork #WrestleMania’
Although Stephanie is well known to live an active lifestyle, the last hashtag on the post has peaked the interest of many WWE fans, as it could be a sign of Stephanie hinting that she will be having a match at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans later this year, her first WrestleMania match of her career.
Many have already speculated who her opponent could be as well, as many fans believe a match with Ronda Rousey at The Showcase of the Immortals could be on the cards following their clash at WrestleMania 31. We’ll have to wait and see but we could know more about Stephanie’s WrestleMania future by the Royal Rumble if she was to be a surprise entrant.
