WWE Royal Rumble: Takeaways from the pay per view event

84 0


A new era is beginning in WWE.

For the first time in his career, Drew McIntyre won the Royal Rumble. And for the first time since 1992, a Flair also won, as Charlotte Flair emerged victorious in the women’s Rumble.

The pay per view included a number of highlights, including Brock Lesnar eliminating 13 straight men before getting knocked over the top rope by McIntyre; Bianca Belair and Shayna Baszler shining in the women’s Rumble; Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan combining for a compelling Universal title match; and an incredible surprise return to the ring by Edge.

The closing sequence was a feel-good moment, as McIntyre claimed his place in wrestling history and now will likely challenge Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 for the WWE title.

Here are the results from the show:

• Sheamus defeated Shorty G on the pre-show

• United States champion Andrade defeated Humberto Carrillo on the pre-show

• Roman Reigns defeated King Corbin in a Falls Count Anywhere match
