Could WWE cap off a great weekend of wrestling around the world with a solid Royal Rumble event? The answer is: yes.
While the last few years have had a few stinkers, this year’s version of the Royal Rumble provided many great moments, some clever angles, and two winners that many fans will love while others might have an issue with.
In addition, it was the debut of former Judo champion and UFC champion Ronda Rousey, officially signing with the WWE for the women’s roster. With the Women’s Royal Rumble over, time will tell where Rousey will fit in but she has her sights set on WrestleMania.
In other action, AJ Styles defended the WWE Championship against Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens while Brock Lesnar defended the WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman and Kane (with a few stiff shots to boot).
