In one of the most anticipated come-back wins, Edge defeated Randy Orton to win his second title at WWE Royal Rumble 2021. He won the first title 11 years ago.
The 34th edition of the WWE Royal Rumble was held on Sunday at the WWE Thunderdome in St. Petersburg, Florida. This year’s Royal Rumble was the first event to be held after the death of Pat Peterson, the mastermind behind the franchise. Also, this was the first-ever Royal Rumble in history to be conducted without a crowd, as it was streamed live.
This year’s WrestleMania saw the return of many wrestling giants in the ring, including Bill Goldberg, Edge, Booker T. When Drew McIntyre defeated Bill Goldberg, to retain his WWE Championship title, the social media went on fire.
After sustaining an injury in 2011, Edge’s comeback was highly anticipated.
Kane, who is currently serving as the mayor of Knox County Tennessee, also made a surprise entry.
In other high-voltage matches, Roman Reigns defeated Kevin Owen to defend his Universal Championship title. Sasha Banks successfully defended her women’s championship title against Carmella.
Bianca Belair won the women’s Royal Rumble match against Rhea Ripley.
