Cody Rhodes wins men’s Royal Rumble

Jan 28, 2023 - by Staff

Cody Rhodes is the winner of the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble Match.

Tonight’s WWE Royal Rumble Premium Live Event opened up with the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match. The match came down to Rhodes and WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER, who entered at #1. Cody entered at #30. The biggest surprises in the match were Logan Paul, WWE Hall of Famer Edge, and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T.

It’s important to note that Rey Mysterio was never eliminated as he never made his entrance, but it was implied that Dominik Mysterio attacked him backstage. WWE NXT Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston never had his elimination announced either. He was tossed out by GUNTHER, but he landed on a chair and the elimination was up in the air.

Rhodes has now earned a title shot at WrestleMania 39, but that match has not been confirmed as of this writing.

Pat McAfee returned before the match and is calling the show with Corey Graves and Michael Cole.

    Going from Zayn/Reigns to Rhodes/Reigns is going to be like having a succulent steak dinner as an appetizer then having a sugar toasted turd as your main dish
