Terrifying finish but gotta love that moment for Edge! Didn’t think they could top Bianca but that’s a pretty feel good night! #RoyalRumble pic.twitter.com/NuWsmeOzxR — Phil Chambers (@PhilMyChambers) February 1, 2021
And to think I'd never ever see Edge back in the ring wrestling. Last year he returned and my heart was beating so fast, this year....HE WON THE WHOLE THING AT #1. Absolutely brilliant. 👏#RoyalRumble pic.twitter.com/8TMSQN6M5P — Nathan 💙💛 (@WWELUFC) February 1, 2021
The 47-year-old, who won the Rumble in 2010, ended a near-decade of retirement with his shock return at last year’s event.
