All eyes were on Batista, as the former WWE Superstar returned to the Royal Rumble PPV in his quest to get back to the WrestleMania Main Event. So… did he deliver on his promise of victory?
Jan. 26 was a big night for some of Hollywood’s heaviest hitters — and no, I’m not talking about the Grammy Awards. I’m talking about WWE‘s Royal Rumble PPV, which stunned fans with some pretty surprising results. The Road To WrestleMania is paved in body slams and controversy?
After Batista‘s bold appearance on the Jan. 20 episode of Monday Night Raw, everyone was dying to see how he’d fare at Royal Rumble, and much to the chagrin of 29 other WWE Superstars, he fared pretty damn well!
Though the odds were stacked against him as he entered the 30-Superstar Royal Rumble Match, the “Animal” emerged victorious. Much of the fans in attendance had a mix reaction to his win but needless to say, WrestleMania should be even more insane than predicted this year!
