Edge wins the Men’s Royal Rumble, news/video from the match

Jan 31, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

WWE Hall of Famer Edge is going to WrestleMania 37.

The Rated R Superstar won tonight’s 30-Man Royal Rumble Match at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL. The match came down to Edge and Orton.

Edge entered the match at #1 and Orton entered at #2, but Orton spent much of the match in the trainer’s room after an injury angle with his leg. Orton entered the match after it looked like Edge had won, but this backfired and Edge eliminated him for the big win.

The match featured several surprise entrants and WWE NXT Superstars, including a returning Seth Rollins, Carlito, Damian Priest, Kane, “The Hurricane” Shane Helms, and Christian.

The match also saw rapper Bad Bunny get involved. Earlier in the night there was a segment where Bunny turned down an offer to join The Miz and John Morrison after Bunny performed his “Booker T” single on the stage. WWE Hall of Famer Booker T interrupted the segment and sent Miz and Morrison on their way. Miz later destroyed Bunny’s DJ Set when he made his Rumble entrance. Bunny came out during the match and distracted both Miz and Morrison, allowing Priest to eliminate them. Priest then cheered Bunny on as he climbed to the top rope and delivered a splash to the floor, taking Miz and Morrison down.

Below are photos and videos from tonight’s Men’s Rumble Match, along with the orders of entrants and eliminations:

    Kind of a waste in my opinion. Having him challenging Reigns is the best choice because it’s horrible booking to have Edge beat a guy that Lesnar & Goldberg couldn’t. Also a tidbit, anyone else in the WWE currently beat Lesnar & Goldberg outside of McIntyre? Nope.

    TGR–Unless they’re trying to build Drew as someone who can beat all the greats from yesteryear.

  3. Disgruntled Jobber says:

    Having edge win the Royal Rumble sets up a great storyline going into Wrestlemania and looking back, he was one of the most logical choices to win. Going after the title he was forced to surrender when he was forced to retire should make for some great entertainment going into the PPV.

  4. Kyle Christie says:

    I agree with DJ and art123guy. A great story of redemption for Edge to not only return from injury but to come back and win the championship he never lost.
