It was a night for the two MAN of WWE as Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch win their respective Royal Rumble matches. While Rollins eliminated Braun Strowman to win the 30-man Royal Rumble, Becky Lynch ousted her arch-rival Charlotte Flair to book a ticket to Wrestlemania. Both the superstars had to show great resilience to ensure their win. While Rollins was planted on the announce table by Bobby Lashley, Lynch had tapped out at the start of the night to Asuka when she challenged for the Smackdown Women’s title.
She took the place of an injured Lana to enter the math and went on to win the whole thing. Rollins, who was out of the ring for the most part of the match, entered when there were only 4 participants left. He had to battle along with Andrade, Ziggler, and Strowman, to ensure his win.
Here are all the results from Royal Rumble 2019:
