Brock Lesnar wins men’s Royal Rumble, full match orders

Jan 30, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

Brock Lesnar is going to WWE WrestleMania 38.

Lesnar won tonight’s 30-Man Royal Rumble Match at the WWE Royal Rumble from The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, MO. The match came down to Lesnar and Drew McIntyre.

Lesnar entered the match at #30 and was not advertised ahead of time. As noted, Lesnar dropped the WWE Title earlier in the night to Bobby Lashley after WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns interfered, and Paul Heyman switched sides once again, joining Reigns and turning on Lesnar. We’ve noted how WWE has had plans for Lesnar vs. Reigns at WrestleMania 38 all along, and it looks like Lesnar will be picking Reigns as his opponent for The Grandest Stage of Them All.

The match featured just a few surprise entrants but no WWE NXT Superstars. The surprises, besides Lesnar, were all names who were reported as spoilers ahead of time – Shane McMahon, rapper Bad Bunny, and McIntyre, who has been out of action with an injury, but was medically cleared before he was expected to be.

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T actually picked Lesnar to win The Rumble when the Kickoff pre-show panel gave predictions earlier in the night. Some fans saw that as a spoiler accidentally leaked by Booker, but there’s no word on if he actually knew Lesnar would be in the match.
