In the last few years, the Royal Rumble match has found new heights of entertainment and unpredictability. The WWE Universe has witnessed a lot of special moments in the recent editions of the Royal Rumble. From surprising debuts to unlikely winners, there are a lot of special memories that are etched forever in the hearts of the fans.
The 2017 Royal Rumble was all about nostalgia, as it included some of WWE’s biggest megastars of all time. It also had a good mix of young superstars, making up for a pleasant viewing experience.
Some of the big names that participated in this match were Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton, and Roman Reigns. However, the two superstars that people were the most excited for were Goldberg and The Undertaker. It was the first Rumble match of these legends in a long time, which made this moment special.
Goldberg entered the fray at number 28 and quickly got rid of his arch-rival Brock Lesnar. But his celebration was cut short by the arrival of The Deadman, who went face-to-face with the Icon. It was a breathtaking moment for the WWE Universe to see the two pillars of WWE and WCW confront each other in the middle of the ring.
The Undertaker hit the first punch, and the two legends began trading blows. Goldberg eventually laid out The Deadman with a spear. But before he could capitalize, The former WCW Champion was thrown out by Taker.

This match should have been about Asuka, right? Surprisingly, the answer is ‘No.’
The 2018 Royal Rumble was a historical one. It was a monumental moment for the future of the Women’s division, as the company announced their first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match.
It was an exciting affair from beginning to end, having many beautiful occurrences. Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch entered as the first two women. 28 other stars, including several pioneers of the Women’s Revolution, kept joining in the fun.
The last person to enter the match was Trish Stratus, who had some fun battles with modern women superstars. The match was eventually won by Asuka, who eliminated Nikki Bella to get the historic victory. However, what happened after this contest is still fresh in the memories of the WWE Universe.
Ronda Rousey, one of UFC’s greatest fighters ever, made her shocking WWE debut right after Asuka’s victory.
She entered the ring, confronted both the Women Champions and, at last, pointed at the WrestleMania sign to mark her arrival. It was a moment that outshined the entire Royal Rumble match, and quite honestly, the whole pay-per-view.
"I go wow, that’s pretty cool."
