Understandably, the biggest news hitting the headlines almost every day as we head towards the annual Royal Rumble event is that history will be made as the women are getting their own Royal Rumble match.
In particular, it's about Ronda Rousey and the possibility of the former UFC bantamweight champion officially making a WWE switch and making her debut at the historic event.
It's been a case of will she-won't see in recent weeks, and even though the odds are suggesting that she's the favourite to win it, several outlets are now claiming that she won't be able to appear at the event because of her other commitments.

The other big news surrounding her WrestleMania status is that the rumoured Four Horsewomen vs. Four Horsewomen feud has been cancelled with plans now taking a different route.
Despite that, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed that Rousey is now virtually a 'lock' to be at WrestleMania 34 - and even the Rumble if she's ready.
It's been reported that both Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir are no longer training at the WWE's Performance Center for a career in professional wrestling - that's why the storyline opposite WWE's finest female athletes has been scrapped.
So, if Rousey is to step inside of the ring and wrestle, it's being reported that much of how she is booked all depends on if she signs a one-and-done deal with WWE or whether it's a long-term deal.
At this time of writing, both Charlotte Flair and Asuka are being discussed as potential opponents. Both are interesting choices, especially if Meltzer has hit the nail on the head with her WrestleMania status.
Ideally, a debut at the Royal Rumble makes the most sense for several reasons. Primarily because this event is used as a platform to set up big matches at WrestleMania, rather than simply trying to force one naturally on an episode of Monday Night or SmackDown LIVE.
Plus, it's a good way to make an impact in the historic match, giving fans something to talk about for years. Not only that, but it means Rousey will have limited involvement and won't be thrown into the deep end right away.
Regardless of what happens, Rousey still training at the Performance Center suggests WrestleMania 34 is a genuine possibility.
