The Royal Rumble 2015 match was one of the most hated ones out of the bunch, as the ending saw Roman Reigns winning it all by eliminating Kane, Big Show, and Rusev. During the early moments of the Royal Rumble match, Curtis Axel was supposed to enter at No. 6. He did come out and made his way to the ring, but was attacked by Wyatt Family member Erick Rowan, who went on to take the victim's place.

The 2015 Royal Rumble match was surely one of the most controversial ones

The spot was turned into a gimmick by Curtis Axel, who began reminding fans repeatedly about how he was still in the Royal Rumble match. As for Rowan, he came in and didn't even last a minute in the match. Rowan was eliminated by Bray Wyatt, and this was it for him. The entire spot didn't do anything of note for both Rowan and Curtis Axel, which was just one of several issues that the 2015 Royal Rumble match was marred with.
