Royal Rumble results, surprises and fallout
The 2016 Royal Rumble was filled with some surprises and title changes.
Kalisto became a 2 time us champion defeating Alberto Del Rio
The New Day retained the tag team titles against the Usos
Charlotte defeated Becky Lynch with help from her dad Ric Flair to retain the Diva's title, afterwards confronted by Sasha Banks
Dean Ambrose defeated Kevin Owens in a last man standing match to retain the Intercontinental championship
And the winner of the 2016 Royal Rumble...The man that came out number 30 and the new WWE World Heavyweight champion...Triple H.
He is now a 14 time champion. He was slightly a surprise entrant. Everyone thought Roman Reigns was going to win the rumble, Although he came out number one, and had the odds stacked against him by The Authority...but swerve L-O-L...Triple H wins the title from Reigns. And the biggest shock of the night coming in at number 3....AJ Styles!! The crowd went ape shit for the 18 year seasoned vet.
The Royal Rumble kicks off the road to Wrestlemania. It set the tone for what we can be looking forwards to at Wrestlemania 32. My early predictions for wrestlemania:
Sasha Banks vs Charlotte
Dean Ambrose vs Chris Jericho for the IC title
Kevin Owens vs either Sami Zahn or Aj Styles
Bray Wyatt vs Brock Lesnar
Roman Reigns vs Triple H
