Hacksaw Jim Duggan
HOOOO! The first Royal Rumble Match winner brought St. Louis to its feet when he returned for the event's 25th anniversary. Hacksaw teamed up with Santino Marella to face Primo & Epico on SmackDown. A distraction gave the champs the win, but the legend's great week earns him a spot in the Power 25.

The Great Khali
The Punjabi giant made his return to WWE during the Royal Rumble Match on Sunday. Khali's manhandling of Hunico and Camacho on SmackDown helped thrust the monster into the World Heavyweight Title picture, as he was chosen to replace Mark Henry in the SmackDown Elimination Chamber Match.

Santino Marella
Santino stays put after a memorable stint in the Royal Rumble Match, where The Cobra was challenged by Mr. Socko. The Italian Superstar teamed with WWE Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan on SmackDown, but a distraction from Rosa Mendes cost them their match against Primo & Epico.

John Laurinaitis
In the interest of fairness, the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim GM of Raw stepped down as referee of the WWE Title Match at the Royal Rumble. Mr. Laurinaitis' performance review was cut short when The Undertaker returned to confront Triple H, sparing his job, for now.

Mark Henry
The World's Strongest Man won't be in action for a while after his actions on SmackDown. Henry put his hands on GM Theodore Long, earning himself an indefinite suspension. He also got the boot from the Elimination Chamber Match, costing him a chance at regaining the World Heavyweight Title.
