For only the third time in WWE history, the No. 1 entrant in the Men’s Royal Rumble has gone on to win the match.

Edge has become only the third superstar to achieve the goal and joins Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit as the only men accomplish the feat.

Edge’s gruelling battle to victory lasted more than 58 minutes and has booked the Rated-R superstar a place at WrestleMania.

The Rumble began with Edge and Randy Orton being the the first two entrants into the ring and remarkably the last two out.

The two brawled before Orton even got to the ring with Edge planting him on the commentary table by countering an RKO with an Edgecution.

Both men spent almost an hour in the ring picking off their opponents until Seth Rollins made his return to WWE programming by entering at No. 29.

Rollins eliminated the odd-on favourite, Daniel Bryan, leaving just four men in the ring in the form of Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, Edge and Christian.
