Video: All 12 Royal Rumble eliminations from Roman Reigns record breaking 2014 performance

New, 3 comments

The 2014 Royal Rumble royally sucked for various reasons but Roman Reigns was most definitely not one of them.

The glorious video you see above was released by WWE for reasons that aren't quite clear but almost definitely have to do with the fact that, well, he's the breakout star of The Shield and they want you to know that. If it wasn't obvious before, it was made blatantly clear with his performance in the Royal Rumble match just over one week ago in Pittsburgh.

Reigns entered at number 15 and proceeded to eliminate 12 wrestlers, breaking Kane's record from 2001. By himself, he almost eliminated half the field.

Ultimately, he finished second in the match, last getting dumped by Batista, a big part of why this Rumble will go down as one of the most reviled in history.

Still, Reigns put together an awesome performance that makes for a great highlight reel. So enjoy watching it and remember:

BELIEVE IN THE SHIELD.
