Royal Rumble calling Clark

Former WWE Women's Champion, Bianca Belair, extended an exciting invitation to WNBA Indiana Fever guard Caitlin Clark to participate in the highly anticipated 2025 women's Royal Rumble. 

The invitation was extended during the press event held to announce the multi-year partnership between WWE and the Indiana Sports Corp, with the 2025 Royal Rumble set to take place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana on February 1.  


Belair expressed her admiration for the progress and attention women's sports have been receiving, highlighting WWE's groundbreaking efforts in promoting women's wrestling, including main eventing WrestleMania and weekly shows. 

During her interaction with ComicBook Nation's Matt Aguilar, Belair said, "Listen, I love what’s happening with the WNBA. I love that women are getting more spotlight and more attention. I’ve always said, you know, we don’t need to do anything different.” 


“It would be really cool for the two worlds to combine and have an even bigger impact for women so Caitlin Clark, if you’re watching, come on. Come in the Royal Rumble,” the former WWE star further added.

Belair also urged Clark to seize the opportunity and join the 30 participants in the Royal Rumble, emphasizing the unpredictability and excitement the event offers with past, present, future, and unexpected competitors converging in the ring.  


In the wrestling world, Belair has recently been competing in the tag team division alongside Jade Cargill, with the duo challenging for the Women's Tag Team Championships at Clash at the Castle. Despite a setback in their title pursuit, Belair remains optimistic and determined to reclaim the titles, acknowledging the ebbs and flows that come with a career in WWE.
