No moment in the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble Match was more shocking than the return of Edge.
Minute Maid Park came unglued Sunday night with the arrival of The Rated-R Superstar, who entered at No. 21 for his first in-ring competition since his retirement in 2011.
And Edge wasn’t satisfied with merely making an appearance. The Ultimate Opportunist tied for the match’s third-most eliminations, tossing AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and former Rated-RKO teammate Randy Orton.
A former Royal Rumble Match winner (2010), Edge lasted for 23:43 before finally being knocked out by Roman Reigns. But by then, he had given the WWE Universe and his peers a moment they’ll never forget.
Coolest thing ever. Gives people hope! https://t.co/fDb2M76nYj— SARAYA (@RealPaigeWWE) January 27, 2020

Without Edge, there is no me.— CASH (@CashWheelerFTR) January 27, 2020
He gave me his time when he didn’t have to.
He gave me advice when he didn’t have to.
He gave me a friend when he didn’t have to.
He gave me a place to live when he didn’t have to.
I owe him everything. Tonight made me happy.
ON THIS DAY, I SEE CLEARLY!!!!! https://t.co/wmJ4V3s6Rc— Pretty Ricky (@KingRicochet) January 27, 2020
