Bianca Belair Vs. Alexa Bliss Made Official For WWE Royal Rumble 2023
The WWE Raw Women's Championship match for the Royal Rumble is confirmed.
The WWE Raw Women's Championship match has been confirmed for the Royal Rumble on Saturday January 28, with Bianca Belair defending her title against Alexa Bliss.
The pair had a confrontation on last night's Raw, which saw Bliss sent into a frenzy by the appearance of several Uncle Howdy masks in the crowd. Howdy himself then appeared - and is expected to play a role during or after the Rumble rematch. WWE.com's official preview for the match even states:
"At Royal Rumble, a very dangerous Alexa Bliss will challenge Bianca Belair for the Raw Women's Title with the ominous Uncle Howdy lurking in the shadows."
Belair has held the Raw Women's title since night one of last year's WrestleMania, where she defeated Becky Lynch.
As well as Belair vs. Bliss, the Royal Rumble card currently includes the following matches:
- 30 man Royal Rumble match
- 30 women Royal Rumble match
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Kevin Owens - Undisputed WWE Universal Championship
- Bray Wyatt vs. LA Knight - Mountain Dew Pitch Black match
