WWE Royal Rumble 2021 results: What was Match of the Night?

WWE has put a bow tie around its Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) from the ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, as the promotion wrapped up the show tonight (Sun., Jan. 31, 2021) with Edge winning the Royal Rumble by last eliminating Randy Orton after “The Viper” tried to use an injury to get an, ahem, edge.

Was it the best match on the card?

The show also featured Bianca Belair entering at number three and going the distance to win the women’s Royal Rumble by last eliminating Rhea Ripley, Roman Reigns retain his Universal championship after a particularly brutal Last Man Standing match against Kevin Owens, Sasha Banks have few problems submitting Carmella to keep her SmackDown women’s title, Drew McIntyre put Goldberg down to retain the WWE championship, and more.
