Following a main event that saw 30 men vie for the right to main event WrestleMania, CODY RHODES has won the 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble.
From Mike Tedesco’s live coverage of the Royal Rumble PLE:
Rhodes goes for Cross Rhodes, but Punk stuns him with a kick. Punk tries to eliminate him, but Rhodes stays in the match. Punk cannot believe he didn’t send him over. Punk stomps Rhodes and points at the WrestleMania sign again. Punk stomps Rhodes and lifts him. Rhodes slides off and hits Punk with Cross Rhodes. Rhodes is fired up and drops to his knees. Rhodes grabs Punk to try to eliminate him, but Punk pops up and drops The American Nightmare with a GTS! Punk pulls Rhodes up and is trying to send him over the top rope. Rhodes hangs on and lands on the apron. Punk pulls Rhodes back in the ring and hits him with a Pedigree! Punk shouts, “Can you believe I did that s–t?” Punk shouts, “I didn’t wait 10 years to lose to Dusty’s kid!” Punk lifts Rhodes and goes for a GTS, but Rhodes blocks it and sends him over the top rope! Rhodes is a back-to-back Royal Rumble winner!
With the win, Cody appears to already have his eyes set on challenging Roman Reigns once more for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 40.
Congratulations to Cody on winning the 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble!
