Quick Rumble Results

WWE Champion AJ Styles defeated Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn to retain the title... even though he pinned the illegal man in Owens.

Smackdown tag champs The Usos defeated Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable in a best-of-three-falls match (2-0) to retain the titles.

Shinsuke Nakamura wins the 2018 Royal Rumble and challenges AJ Styles to a title match, thus giving Wrestlemania its first true dream match of the modern age... that is, unless we get that Cena/Taker match.

The Bar (Sheamus and Cesaro) defeated Raw tag team champions Seth Rollins and that other guy to win the titles.

Brock Lesnar showed up, tossed a bunch of suplexes, and won whatever match he was in because he needs to drop the belt to Roman at some point in Orlando or wherever Mania is taking place this year.

And then Stephanie showed up and I stopped watching... but apparently, Asuka won the thing... and then former UFC Diva Ronda Rousey showed up to the surprise of absolutely no one and did nothing of note. But of course, that's enough to get press from the media who normally wouldn't touch this shit with a two-story pole, but it's Rousey and she's celebrity vaporware, so... yay?

I'll save the write-up for next year. Too busy at the moment... however, I will say that the two Rumble matches were actually fun to watch and having two Japanese wrestlers win their respective Rumbles was a pleasant surprise... even though none of them will get to main event Mania because THIS TIME FOR SURE, people will like Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar DAMMIT!

But hey, if this year's Wrestlemania main event ends up involving Rousey or Stephanie in some kind of match, then I'll be very happy since I'll get to sleep in early that night.
