One of the biggest pay-per-views in WWE descended on Houston Sunday Night at Minute Maid Park, The Royal Rumble!
The 2020 Royal Rumble had some amazing matches outside of the two main events. Asuka took Becky Lynch to the limit in a classic Women’s Championship Match; the strap match between the Fiend and Daniel Bryan was brutal and relentless, Bryan continues to prove why he is a fan favorite; the Women’s Rumble was highlighted by NXT talent stepping up big with the likes of Bianca Belair and Shayna Blaszler.
Alexa Bliss entered as the first wrestler and lasted a long time, for a minute I thought that she might even take it. However, it was Charlotte Flair who eventually won the night. For the men’ rumble, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar entered the match at number 1, something a champ had never done before. He toyed with each wrestler who came out before finally being taken out by big man, Drew McIntyre. The big return of the night came when Edge came out of retirement and was one of the last 5 men left in the match. The rumble then came down to the big dog Roman Reigns and McIntyre with McIntyre securing his shocking first ever win.
Now when McIntyre eliminated Lesnar that could have been a set up for the two to face off at Wrestlemania but he might choose to face off with the Fiend. The choice is his. Either way we will find out on Monday Night Raw.
