Asuka hits the ring, and with her trademark deadly offence, eliminates Ruby Riot, Sarah Logan and, after some hard-hitting back and forth, Shayna Baszler. With Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville distracted by this, Sasha Banks eliminates Mandy and Bayley eliminates Sonya.
Seeing her opportunity, Paige will quickly dump out Bayley just after she has thrown Sonya. Nikki Bella will follow shortly thereafter, eliminated by Asuka, leaving us with Paige, Sasha Banks, Asuka and number one entrant Becky Lynch as our final four.
Despite her impressive performance, Becky is the first to go, eliminated by Paige. Sasha Banks follows, eliminated by Asuka. At this point, Mandy and Sonya return to ringside, taunting Asuka. With the 'Empress of Tomorrow' distracted, Paige scores an opportunistic elimination, winning the first ever women's Royal Rumble match, and heading onto WrestleMania to face the Raw Women's Champion.
