Texas, Jan 30: There were a number of talking points from last night’s Royal Rumble 2017 event.
John Cena won his 16th WWE World championship at the event as the legends congratulated him all around the pro-wrestling circuit. After the match, Cena was spotted celebrating with the audience in the Alamodome.
He was joined by none other than Ric Flair at the backstage after the history-making match was over.
The Nature Boy gave an interview on wwe.com where he congratulated the franchise of the company who runs the place.
He said he is happy for Cena since a flagship talent like him has done the unthinkable.
However, John Cena has a massive roadblock waiting for him within two weeks when he defends his newly won title at the Elimination Chamber PPV which will be a Smackdown-exclusive PPV from Phoenix, Arizona. The announcement was made during the Rumble event.
We got a new tag team champion in Gallows-Anderson. After waiting a long time since they have arrived from Japan, they were finally able to claim what belonged to them, rightfully.
They were found bragging about their victory during the Fallout video ending the segment by giving a “too sweet” to each other.
During the Universal championship match, Roman Reigns was hit by a stunner from Kevin Owens making the crowd nuts.
The Texas rattlesnake surely noticed it and sent out a tweet to KO hinting to a possible confrontation between the two of them.
It was announced that Seth Rollins will have a 'face to face’ confrontation with Stephanie McMahon on tomorrow night’s Raw after he was banned from entering the Alamodome at the Royal Rumble event. It is going to be one explosive segment, for sure.
Furthermore, the twitter-verse went on a rant after Roman Reigns again entered at the Royal Rumble match after losing the Universal title match.
The crowd expected Samoa Joe at the spot and so could not resist their unhappiness with WWE’s decision.
