Roman Reigns vs Kevin Owens: The match was arguably the best of the night with both the WWE superstars taking extreme punishments and going to the limit to win the match. While Owens came close to winning the championship after a long wait of four years, Reigns attacked the referee before three counts could be completed. Reigns ended the match with a submission move on Owens. 

Goldberg vs Drew McIntyre: Another much-awaited match came to its conclusion as McIntyre retained his championship belt despite taking multiple hits including Goldberg's trademark spears and jackhammer. However, McIntyre finished the match with a Claymore Kick to continue his dominating run. 

Charlotte Flair and Asuka vs Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax: The team of Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler defeated Charlotte Flair and Asuka to regain the women's tag team titles. 

Sasha Banks vs Carmella: Sasha Banks retained her Smackdown Women Championship with a victory over Carmella. 

Men's Royal Rumble: Entering the match at the first spot, Edge won the Royal Rumble for the second time in his career. With only Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, Christian and Edge remaining in the ring, the latter took the chances as he waited for Rollins to eliminate Christian before pouncing on the chance to throw Rollins out of the ring and win the event.
