After starting as the No. 1 entrant Edge won the Royal Rumble by tossing out Randy Orton, The Rumble also saw the returns of Seth Rollins and, more surprisingly, Christian.
The women’s Rumble was won by Bianca Belair, who could be WWE’s next breakout star. Both world champions retained their gold, with Roman Reigns defeating Kevin Owens and Drew McIntyre pinning Goldberg.
Overall, it was a fairly good show. More than other PPV events, it was hurt by the lack of a crowd. Neither world championship match was a showstealer, either. But the main event was fun, and it’s a genuine feel-good story to see Edge back.
