And That Does It
After walking right into an RKO, Reigns gets clotheslined over the top rope, making Randy Orton the winner of the 2017 Royal Rumble
Bye Bye Y2J
We're down to Orton, Reigns and Wyatt. Orton and Wyatt gang up on Reigns.
Taker Keeps Going, Until He Doesn't
Taker throws out Zayn and Miz before Reigns throws him out, much to the dismay of the crowd.
Roman Reigns Is No. 30
Goldberg eliminates Rusev. Taker eliminates Corbin. Goldberg eliminates Harper. Taker eliminates Goldberg.
The Undertaker Is No. 29
Instead of coming down the ramp, he just appears in the ring behind Goldberg.

Enzo Amore Is No. 27
Lesnar eliminated Ambrose and Ziggler right away.
Brock Lesnar Is No. 26

Luke Harper Is No. 25
Luke Harper eliminates Crews almost immediately.
Dolph Ziggler Is No. 24
No more eliminations yet.
Randy Orton Is No. 23
Sheamus and Cesaro eliminated all three members of The New Day, the Y2J eliminated Sheamus and Cesaro at the same time. That really cleared up some space.
Apollo Crews Is No. 22
Still waiting for some eliminations.
Bray Wyatt Is No. 21
I get the feeling the ring is filling up so Goldberg and Lesnar can clear them all out.
Xavier Woods Is No. 20
Still nobody eliminated in awhile. The New Day are all in the ring, so they are working together.
Cesaro Is No. 19
Yet again, no eliminations.
Rusev Is No. 18
It didn't feel like the full time passed between 17 and 18. The ring is starting to fill up. Rusev is wearing a face protector like Cody Rhodes used to wear.
Big E Is No. 17
No more eliminations yet.
Sheamus Is No. 16
Kofi gets knocked off the ring post and lands right on his chest, but he pulls himself back in and hits Trouble in Paradise to Corbin. No eliminations since the last entry.
The Miz Is No. 15
I am not sure if Jericho was eliminated or if he is hiding again, but he isn't in the ring.
Kofi Kingston Is No. 14
Strowman threw Dillinger out, which got a lot of heat from the crowd. Corbin eliminated Strowman right before Ambrose hit him with Dirty Deeds.
Baron Corbin Is Lucky No. 13
Strowman threw Ellsworth out of the ring like he was nothing.
Dean Ambrose Is No. 12
Ellsworth still has gotten in the ring when Dean comes down, so Dean tricks him into getting in and facing Strowman.
James Ellsworth Is No. 11
They come close, but nobody can get Strowman over the top rope.
Perfect 10 Tye Dillinger Is No. 10
Jericho finally came back in the ring, only to get hit with a KO Punch. Strowman and Big Show each manage to pick each other up at different times. Braun is eventually able to throw him out.
Big Show Is No. 9
Strowman was not able to eliminate anyone else before Big Show came out. Jericho is still cowering outside the ring.
Sami Zayn Is No. 8
Braun Strowman eliminated Mojo Rawley, Big Cass and Kalisto in quick succession. He also eliminated Mark Henry. Chris Jericho was hiding by the announce table to avoid him.
Braun Strowman Is No. 7
Mark Henry eliminated Jack Gallagher and William III (His umbrella).
Mark Henry Is No. 6
Everyone is down as Henry approaches the ring. Still no eliminations.
No. 5 Is Jack Gallagher
Still no eliminations. It's nice to see the cruiserweights get a shot, too.
Mojo Rawley Is No. 4
Everyone is still in the match at this point.
Kalisto Is No. 3
So far, nobody has been eliminated.
Chris Jericho Is No. 2
The U.S champion heads to the ring as Cole welcomes Jerry Lawler back to the commentary table. It might be a good idea to just bring him in for special occasions. People wouldn't get tired of him.
Big Cass Is No. 1
Updates for the Rumble will come wth each new entrant and contain any eliminations since the last entrant. As they head to the ring, Enzo Amore gives his usual introduction while the whole crowd chants it with him.
An Endorsement from the Original 16-Time Champion
Ric Flair congratulating Cena on tying his record is the icing on the cake. What a performance. The Rumble better have en epic ending if it hopes to match the energy of what we just saw.
