Royal Rumble : Full Details
John Cena won the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match
After a disastrous 2012, John Cena took a big step forward in making 2013 his year by outlasting 29 other Superstars to win the Royal Rumble Match and earning a World Title opportunity at WrestleMania 29 on April 7.
The Rock def. WWE Champion CM Punk
The Rock fulfilled his promise of dethroning CM Punk in Phoenix and reclaiming the title he last held August 2002. But thanks to an alleged attack that transpired under the veil of darkness, The Great One’s eighth WWE Championship victory very nearly didn’t come to fruition.
World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio def. Big Show (Last Man Standing Match)
When the dust settled after a chaotic Last Man Standing Match, it was Alberto Del Rio who remained firmly on his feet after felling the gargantuan Big Show at Royal Rumble.
WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No def. Team Rhodes Scholars
Kane and Daniel Bryan's good week got even better at the 2013 Royal Rumble when the odd-couple Tag Team Champions retained their championships against a stiff challenge from Team Rhodes Scholars.
U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro def. The Miz (Pre-Show)
The festivities of Royal Rumble 2013 kicked off with an exclusive live Pre-Show — on Facebook, YouTube, WWE.com and for the first time ever on the WWE App — featuring the heated rivalry between United States Champion Antonio Cesaro and The Miz culminating in high-stakes contest for the title.
