You’ve been warned.

The Royal Rumble is one of the biggest nights in the professional wrestling calendar.

Even if you’re a fan of the old school days or just a casual fan, the Rumble is always an entertaining watch.

The event in Texas last night featured featured five title fights as well as the 30 man main event. Scroll down for the results.

Ireland’s Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, and Naomi defeated Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, and Natalya in a six-woman tag match.

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson defeated Cesaro and Dubliner Sheamus to win the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship.

Nia Jax defeated Sasha Banks in a singles match, while Charlotte Flair beat Bayley to retain her WWE Raw Women’s Championship title.

Kevin Owens defeated Roman Reigns in a No Disqualification match to defend the WWE Universal Championship. Here’s one of the moments of the match.

Neville defeated Rich Swann by submission to win the WWE Cruiserweight Championship while John Cena defeated AJ Styles to win the WWE Championship.

That’s Cena’s 16th world title win and he celebrated afterwards with a kid from the Make-A-Wish foundation, it’s a cool moment.

The main event of the night was the 30 man Royal Rumble where the winner gets a title shot at WrestleMania, the biggest night in sports entertainment.

The match saw appearances from The Undertaker, Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, Chris Jericho and Big Show but the final two men left in the ring were Randy Orton and Roman Reigns, who had lost to Kevin Owens earlier in the night.

The man going to WrestleMania is… RANDY ORTON.
