Royal Rumble 2021: Here's a List of Winners Through the Years

As the Royal Rumble event is just days away, we take a look at its winners through the years.

The Royal Rumble is one of the most iconic and grand matches in the WWE universe. The highly anticipated pay per view (PPV) is a multi-person battle royal whose participants enter at timed intervals and the sole objective is to be the last man/woman standing in the ring.

Ever since its inception in 1988, the annual event has grown in participant size and also its popularity among the fans. However, since WWE started its men's and women's Royal Rumble matches each year, it’s popularity and viewership has soared to new heights. This year’s edition of the Royal Rumble PPV will take place on January 31 ((Monday, February 1 India time) at the ThunderDome at Tropicana Field, in Tampa, Florida. The company has lined up quite a few exciting matches which include Bill Goldberg fighting Drew McIntyre for the WWE Title. While Kevin Owens takes on Roman Reigns for the Universal Title.
