Brock Lesnar wins the Royal Rumble

@WWE

The men’s Royal Rumble match headlined the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) tonight (Sat., Jan. 29, 2022) at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri. There were surprises expected, and very little hint of who would win going in.

We probably should have expected that it would end up being Brock Lesnar, as a way to set up another WrestleMania match against Roman Reigns.

Here was the order of entrants:

  1. AJ Styles
  2. Shinsuke Nakamura
  3. Austin Theory
  4. Robert Roode
  5. Ridge Holland
  6. Montez Ford
  7. Damian Priest
  8. Sami Zayn
  9. Johnny Knoxville
  10. Angelo Dawkins
  11. Omos
  12. Ricochet
  13. Chad Gable
  14. Dominik Mysterio
  15. Happy Corbin
  16. Dolph Ziggler
  17. Sheamus
  18. Rick BOOGS
  19. Madcap Moss
  20. Riddle
  21. Drew McIntyre
  22. Kevin Owens
  23. Rey Mysterio
  24. Kofi Kingston
  25. Otis
  26. Big E
  27. Bad Bunny
  28. Shane McMahon
  29. Randy Orton
  30. Brock Lesnar

And the order of eliminations (including who they were eliminated by):

  1. Robert Roode (AJ Styles)
  2. Shinsuke Nakamura (AJ Styles)
  3. Johnny Knoxville (Sami Zayn)
  4. Sami Zayn (AJ Styles)
  5. Angelo Dawkins (Omos)
  6. Montez Ford (Omos)

  9. Ricochet (Happy Corbin)
  10. Dominik Mysterio (Happy Corbin)
  11. Austin Theory (AJ Styles)
  12. Ridge Holland (AJ Styles)

  22. Kevin Owens (Shane McMahon)
  23. Big E (RK-Bro)
  24. Otis (RK-Bro)
  25. Randy Orton (Brock Lesnar)
  26. Bad Bunny (Brock Lesnar)
  27. Riddle (Brock Lesnar)
  28. Shane McMahon (Brock Lesnar)
  29. Drew McIntyre (Brock Lesnar)

The show went off the air with Michael Cole wondering aloud who Lesnar would choose to challenge at WrestleMania, and to be fair he has a reason to go after either champion, but it’s pretty obvious where this is headed now.
