WWE Royal Rumble 2019: It was a night of surprises and expectations as The Road to Wrestlemania 35 began with WWE’s first pay-per-view of 2019- Royal Rumble. The WWE Royal Rumble 2019 featured two Royal Rumble matches where the 30 superstars vied for the chance to have a shot at headlining Wrestlemania. Both the men and women battled it out in the traditional 30-competitor, over-the-top-rope Royal Rumble matches. The winners now will face the champion of his or her choice on The Grandest Stage of Them All in April.
Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch overcame big obstacles to win the main events. WWE did not tinker much with the title picture as only two title out of seven on the line changed hands.
One of the big news coming just before the match was the injury to John Cena who was replaced by Braun Strowman in the Men’s 30-man Royal Rumble match.
