17 Huge Takeaways From The WWE Royal Rumble

While WrestleMania is the WWE's biggest event of the year, the Royal Rumble is the most anticipated match. This year's Rumble was packed with heavyweights (literally), as the star power was higher than it's been in years. Over 50,000 fans packed the Alamodome in San Antonio, really giving the 30th Royal Rumble a big event feel.

The Rumble is where the Road to WrestleMania really begins, as we now have a clear idea of where feuds are going and who is going to settle the score at WrestleMania. We got yet another anti-climatic Royal Rumble overall, as the Rumble match itself featured no surprises, predictable booking and yet another second-time winner rather than crowning someone new.

Cena has now tied Ric Flair with 16 title wins, and Kevin Owens is still the Universal Champion.

What should we take away from this event? Well, read and find out.

That leaves the door open for Mickie James and Becky Lynch to feud in a possible no.1 contender feud, while the feud between Nikki Bella and Natalya should also be settled.

Wow, three separate feuds in the SmackDown women's division? That's pretty impressive considering SmackDown has the smaller roster. Which leads us to this question...
