The Royal Rumble is always a big deal. Why? Because it is one damned time when you get to see lots of men with lots of muscles doing lots of things that you might otherwise not get to see. In that sense, the whole of the Royal Rumble is pretty special. However, we still think there were some moments in this Royal Rumble that were pretty rad.
Here they are.
A brave and admirable move by Sami Zayn left us all in excitement. Everyone knew he was ready for a comeback. But no one anticipated that the comeback would be marked by his debut in Royal Rumble match where he would punch out Kevin Owens.
The Eater of Worlds prides himself on galactus-sized statements, and he made quite a bigger one, yet when he commanded his diabolical brood - all previously tossed by The Beast Incarnate - to return to the ring and help him take down The Anomaly from the Royal Rumble. And yet what was more chilling was, Brock Lesnar being held down due to circumstances.
Revenge is beautiful. So when Stephanie McMahon promised that Triple H would exact his vengeance on Roman Reigns when the WWE World Heavyweight Champion least expected it, everyone was all ears. This materialized in the No. 30 spot in the Royal Rumble match. Overwhelming.
Nobody could keep Dean Ambrose down, and we pretty much saw that. But the title still managed to stay off his hands by only a matter of moments. It was a sight worth seeing.
AJ Styles is here. Coming in at No. 3, he chose to cut the drama and get down to business. So he lasted for 28 minutes and tossed out two men before being tossed out by Kevin Owens. Owens sneered "By AJ." But all we know is, this is just the beginning.
