5 Biggest botches in Royal Rumble history
The Royal Rumble has always been one of the most anticipated events of the WWE. The pay-per-view is known for surprising the fans with many returns and shocking results.
Last year as well, the WWE shocked the world with the return of Rey Mysterio and the debut of Ronda Rousey.
However, sometimes, not everything could be done according to the plan as nowadays, things could quickly get botched. There have been many instances when the WWE had to handle botches in the Royal Rumble match.
In this article, I’m listing 5 Royal Rumble botches that I think you should take a look at. Let me know if there’s any popular one I missed to talk about in the comment section.
#5 Batista and Cena got eliminated at the same time
John Cena and Batista are two of the biggest superstars in the WWE. Both superstars enjoyed their success in the company for years. However, Batista is no longer in the company as he is busy acting in Hollywood while Cena is also following the same path.
In 2005, Batista was supposed to win the Royal Rumble match by eliminating John Cena, but here things got a little botchy as both superstars fell off at the same time. WWE was planning to push both of them and having Batista winning the Rumble was their first goal.
This is also one of the most infamous botches in Royal Rumble history as it could have changed WWE’s WrestleMania plans. However, Vince McMahon came to the ring to restart the match with only these two superstars.
But in the process of doing this, he made things more botchy by tearing his quads. Batista won the match anyway by eliminating John Cena as it was planned.
