2023 is sure to kick off in spectacular style as the road to WrestleMania begins with the WWE Royal Rumble!
The 2022 Royal Rumble produced some major shocks with two surprise winners of both the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches. ‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey made her stunning comeback to WWE after almost three years away picking up the win in the women’s Rumble and booking her place at WrestleMania.
Brock Lesnar had one of the most rollercoaster single nights in WWE history. The Beat Incarnate lost his WWE Championship earlier in the night to Bobby Lashley thanks to Roman Reigns’ interference. By the end of the night, however, Lesnar was back on top as he entered the men’s Rumble at number 30 and won the whole thing.
