The Women’s Revolution is in full force in WWE. The company has dropped the word Divas and started to describe them as The WWE Female Superstars. The ladies in WWE are quite professional now. Earlier, WWE used them in filler timing only. However, now, they are at the same level as the men.
Sometimes, WWE Female Superstars have outshone their male counterparts. Courtesy of the WWE Female Superstars’ rise, even the other promotions take women’s wrestling seriously now. To promote female talent, WWE organizes the annual Royal Rumble. The first match happened in 2018. Here are the top four female WWE Superstars who have spent the most time in the Rumble.

4. Naomi – 1 hour, 18 minutes, and 1 second
Naomi is a former SmackDown Women’s Champion. She famously won that title at WrestleMania 33. Naomi has been around for quite some time. She has been an integral part of the Women’s Revolution. She recently made her return to WWE in the 2021 Royal Rumble.
Naomi is one of the few WWE Female Superstars to have spent over 1 hour in the Rumble. She is known for her athleticism. Like Kofi Kingston, she has been a part of some memorable Royal Rumble moments. It is very tough to eliminate Naomi from the Rumble because of her smartness. Her timing of 1:18:01 just proves that.
3. Bianca Belair – 1 hour, 30 minutes, and 9 seconds
Bianca Belair is the winner of 2021 Women’s Royal Rumble. She outlasted 29 other WWE Female Superstars to win the match. Belair will likely challenge Sasha Banks at WrestleMania. She is a home-grown Superstar. Also, she is reportedly well-liked backstage.
Her talent has gained her a massive fan following. Belair entered at #3 this year. She had eliminated eight Superstars last year. While she could not match that tally in 2021, she made history by winning the Rumble. By staying inside the ring for such a long time, Belair took her total career timing to 1:30:09.
2. Natalya – 1 hour, 38 minutes, and 18 seconds
Natalya held the record for the most time spent by any of the WWE Female Superstars in the Royal Rumble. However, that record is no longer in her name. Natalya calls herself The BOAT. The full form of the acronym is Best of All Time. She received a grand opportunity to enter the 2021 Rumble at #30.
However, she could not capitalize on it. Natalya got eliminated soon. She had defeated Tamina Snuka to gain this elusive opportunity. Had Natalya spent more time in the 2021 Women’s Royal Rumble, she could have at least retained the tag for the most time spent by a WWE Female Superstar in the Royal Rumble match.
1. The Queen of the WWE Female Superstars – Charlotte Flair: 1 hour, 50 minutes, and 5 seconds
Charlotte Flair has earned the nickname of The Queen of All Eras. She considers herself as the number one among the WWE Female Superstars. Flair has victories over the likes of Trish Stratus, Bayley, Sasha Banks, and many other top WWE Female Superstars. She won the Royal Rumble in 2020. Later, she challenged Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania and won the NXT Women’s title.
Flair lasted till the closing phase of the Royal Rumble in 2021. However, she got eliminated by Rhea and Bianca Belair. Flair overtook Natalya in terms of the WWE Female stars with the most time in the Royal Rumble match history. Flair has spent close to 2 hours now. It will be interesting to see which Superstar touches the 2 hours mark first.
