With two big battle royals each year now, the Royal Rumble turns into an even more fun pay-per-view as the unpredictability factor is raised. Both the male and female superstars battle it out to snag main event slots at WrestleMania, and 2019 was no different as they all looked to be the last one standing. Now, let’s check out all the details of the order of entries and eliminations for both the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches.

A number of other matches were on the Royal Rumble card with major titles from both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live on the line. Still, fans were truly looking forward to the two battle royals more than anything else.

Before either of the two big battle royals, here is what took place on the Royal Rumble as recapped by WWE:

After the first shocking Royal Rumble, there were a few other matches on the card that needed to take place. Both of those matches were for the main men’s titles in WWE, and one of them had quite the shocking ending.

Daniel Bryan defeated AJ Styles to retain the WWE Championship, but he received some help from a returning Erick Rowan. There wasn’t much explained to that whole thing, but that should come this week.

After that match, Brock Lesnar and Finn Balor had a hard-hitting bout for the WWE Universal Championship which the “Beast Incarnate” retained.
