The 2019 Royal Rumble event is over (for the women), and we were blessed with three matches: 2 championship matches and the Royal Rumble. The reception to the matches were mixed. There were some sloppy spots in the singles matches and there were people all over the place in the Rumble match itself. There were also complaints of predictability in the matches that we were given. We all can’t be pleased and the show was proof positive of that.
However, there were some cool spots and a number of bright spots that we fans did enjoy. Coming into the event on the women’s side, the narrative was that Ronda Rousey wanted to be taken to her limits and face the best on RAW, so she requested to battle Sasha Banks. On Smackdown, Becky Lynch wanted the title she was screwed out of back at TLC thanks to interference from Rousey. This put The Man up against a very game Asuka. Meanwhile, 30 women laid claim to the Rumble itself for their shot at Mania. Now, the event is over and our matches had winners.
Who were the biggest winners of the night? Let’s take a look and see!
