The Royal Rumble…….well to put it plain and simple, it was horrible. In my opinion, the ONLY good thing that happened was that Sasha Banks is now in the picture for a Divas title match. I guess you could throw in the debut of AJ Styles, but with social media the way it is now, I was already over it as soon as it happened.
Here are the full list of results, including the kickoff match.
Mark Henry & Jack Swagger defeated The Ascension, Dudley Boyz and Darren Young & Damien Sandow to earn a spot in the Royal Rumble.
Dean Ambrose defeated Kevin Owens to retain the Intercontinental Championship after throwing Owens through two tables and he could not answer the 10 count.
The New Day defeated the Usos to retain the Tag Titles.
Kalisto defeated Alberto Del Rio to become the new United States champion.
Charlotte defeated Becky Lynch to retain the Divas title with help from Ric Flair. After the match, Sasha Banks came out and attacked Charlotte, perhaps setting up a match between the two.
Triple H entered the Royal Rumble at number 30 and won to become the new WWE World Heavyweight champion. You can find a full list of entries and who they were eliminated by below.

*At one point during the match, Roman was attacked by the League of Nations and was taken to the back to receive treatment. He missed a significant amount of time, but returned shortly before Triple H came out.
**AJ Syles made his debut with the WWE tonight
***The Wyatts came into the match after being eliminated and took out Brock.
****The Miz came out and spent what seemed like 15 minutes on commentary. There needs to be a new rule that states if you are not inside the ring within a certain amount of time, then you forfeit your entry and are disqualified from the match.
