This year's WWE Royal Rumble is set to not only be one of the most memorable in history, it's going to be one of the most historic. According to one recent report, former WWE women's champion Molly Holly has been contacted and is confirmed for the Rumble. Her last match took place in 2009 in the 25-Diva Miss WrestleMania Battle Royal at WrestleMania 25.
The following matches are advertised for the WWE Royal Rumble, which will be held on January 28 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Wells Fargo Center.
However, WWE has reportedly reached out to her to feature in the bout, along with Michelle McCool. She hasn't wrestled for the company since she lost a "Loser Leaves WWE" match against Layla at Extreme Rules in 2011. While there have been criticisms of putting together a 30-women match, due to the current roster not having that many female superstars, the announcements of the women coming back to compete in the match lead to much intrigue to watch it. Best known for her spell as one half of LayCool, she's a four-time Divas/Women's Champion, a former "Diva Of The Year" Slammy Award victor, and someone who hasn't appeared for the company in close to seven years.
Both Holly and McCool have appeared on WWE television since their wrestling departures, notably on the WWE Network's Table For Three program. McCool has also hinted on Twitter that she might be up for a return to the squared circle.
