Closing out the 34th annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view was the men’s Royal Rumble match. There were several surprises and returns during the bout but the final four were Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, Edge and Christian. As the numbers came down to two, Edge and Seth Rollins went at it but it was Edge eliminating Rollins to seemingly win the Rumble.
Earlier in the night, Randy Orton was removed from the match because of an “injury” and he came back at the end and RKO’d Edge. As Orton attempted to toss Edge out of the ring, Edge reversed the momentum and threw Orton over the top rope and won the Royal Rumble match. It was 11 years ago today that Edge won his first Rumble.
