JUST IN: Randy Orton wins 2017 Royal Rumble

Reigns then proceeded to eliminate The Undertaker, Chris Jericho, and Bray Wyatt, before eventually getting tossed out by Orton.

Twitter was littered with fans unhappy with Reigns having a spot in the match after failing to capture the Universal Championship earlier in the show.

The victor of the bout will be the WWE Champion heading into Elimination Chamber, a pay-per-view WWE is resurrecting after a brief hiatus and one where a six-man elimination match against SmackDown's top stars, like The Miz and Baron Corbin, awaits.

John Cena and AJ Styles will rekindle their ruthless rivalry once again on Sunday night, this time over the WWE Championship.

Ortan, who recently became a part of the Wyatt family, teamed up with Bray to knock out Reigns.

Many fans are awaiting the beginning of the annual road to WrestleMania. Live, Orton is expected to challenge newly-crowned WWE Champion John Cena at Wrestlemania.

Cena has now tied level with the legendary Ric Flair in terms of world title victories, and both he and Styles produced their greatest hits in the match.

Kevin Owens defeated Roman Reigns in a no disqualification match to retain the WWE Universal Championship after Braun Strowman interfered. However, that's because of the Royal Rumble match.

Sports broadcaster and former ECW wrestler/WWE sports entertainer Taz will host the three-hour show, joined by special guests Evan Roberts of the "Joe and Evan Show" on WFANandMike Johnson of PW Insider, to discuss the night's biggest winners, biggest losers and best wrestling moves. Here, it is interesting to note that rumour mills have pegged a not-so-clean ending to Reigns vs Strowman's match at the RAW-exclusive Fastlane PPV that is slated to take place before Wrestlemania. The rules are simple: The match begins with two wrestlers and then every 90 seconds a new superstar enters the bout. It's also the first pay-per-view of the calendar year for the company. Styles and Shane McMahon?

B/R's Alfred Konuwa was, unlike the fans in attendance, rabidly supporting Reigns' quest for Rumble win number two. After so much speculation, the fans were expecting more surprise returns, bigger moments, and more action from the big stars like The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and Goldberg. Going into the match, it made little storyline sense for Bayley to win the championship here. Goldberg eliminated Luke Harper and Rusev but the Undertaker got Godlberg out of the ring. Owens got a moment to recover and hit a backstabber on Reigns for two, before pushing the table out of the ring.

If WWE is booking towards Brock v Goldberg at 'Mania, it's not doing a very good job in building them.

Goldberg used a spear and threw Lesnar over the top, eliminating the "Beast Incarnate" and dealing him another stunning loss. With it down to Orton and Reigns, things were shaping up to be a boo fest for a Reigns win. Is it main event worthy?

If the WWE was going to have him participate in the Rumble and also be inducted into the Hall of Fame, wouldn't it have been a much bigger surprise had Angle came out for the Rumble as a surprise and then been announced the next night for the Hall?
