WWE Royal Rumble 2022

Continuing its stumble towards WrestleMania, the 2022 Royal Rumble offered few surprises, a number of older faces, a glut of mid-card talent,  the absence of several big names, and a smattering of "celebrity" appearances.

Brock Lesnar, after being cheated out of the title in a match earlier in the evening, entered the lackluster main event Men's Royal Rumble Match securing his spot against Roman Reigns (who successfully defended his title earlier in the evening against Seth Rollins) in the main event at WrestleMania. The Woman's Rumble wasn't much more interesting, nor was the winner any shock to fans, but did feature a number of former WWE Superstars returning including Melina, Kelly Kelly, Mickie James, and Sarah Logan.

The other matches of the evening, fitting for being just as forgettable, included Becky Lynch retaining her championship against Doudrop, and Edge and Beth Phoenix coming out victorious over Miz and Maryse in an intergender tag-team match between real-life couples.
