“The advice I would give to the women is don’t listen to the critics. Last year I wasn’t a favorite to win, and you know what I did, I defied the odds and I won the Royal Rumble in 2020,” Charlotte said in a backstage interview. “That’s why I’m going to declare myself for the 2021 Royal Rumble, and defy the odds again.”
Styles made his debut at the 2016 Royal Rumble. A year later he was defending the WWE Championship against John Cena at the same event. This will only be his third appearance in the 30-man countdown battle royal.
This will also be Charlotte’s third appearance in the Royal Rumble Match. She did not participate in the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble but did so in the next two finishing runner up in the 2019 edition and winning it last year.
