WWE News: Complete Order Of Entries And Eliminations For Men’s And Women’s ‘Royal Rumble’ Matches

On Sunday night, WWE made history with two huge battle royals at the 2018 Royal Rumble, and here are all the details of the entries and eliminations for both the men and the women. The first match of the two that took place was that with 30 men competing for a main event spot at WrestleMania 34. The final match of the night was the women’s Royal Rumble, and it certainly delivered in nostalgic and iconic fashion.

There were some other matches on the card this evening, but the fans in Philadelphia were there for the two big ones. It was the first time ever that the women of the wrestling world were able to compete in a Royal Rumble strictly for them, and they all made the most of it.

Both matches saw some big-time debuts and a number of old-school returns which showed that the past WWE superstars still had it. The women’s battle royal had more returns than that of the men’s match, but it was so much fun all the way around.

As recapped by the official website of WWE, here is the full order of all entries and eliminations for both matches. Both winners will have world title matches at WrestleMania 34 in early April.
