Randy Orton is now again the Royal Rumble winner after being the last man standing in WWE’s 30-man battle royale. He’ll head to a title shot at WrestleMania 33, though the title he’s challenging for is up in the air with the brand split back.
Randy Orton eliminated Roman Reigns to win the annual event, and he will now be going onto Wrestlemania to face either WWE Champion John Cena, or Universal Champion Kevin Owens.

The excitement peaked towards the latter half when Brock Lesnar destroyed the field before meeting old foe Goldberg once again in the ring.
Lesnar was easily eliminated by Goldberg, who in turn was thrown over the top rope by a resurgent Undertaker who entered the battle royale at number 29.
It came down to Orton, Bray Wyatt, Chris Jericho and Roman Reigns. After not even being expected to be in the Rumble, Roman Reigns entered at number 30 and eliminated two legends in The Undertaker and Chris Jericho before squaring off with Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt.
After Reigns managed to eliminate Wyatt, it was Orton who reversed a spear into an RKO and eliminate Roman for the remarkable victory in main event of WrestleMania 33. Randy will now get a chance to point at the Wrestlemania sign for two months before facing off with John Cena or the winner of February’s Smackdown only Elimination Chamber pay per view.
