Avid fan of Wrestling writes about WWE, AEW, NJPW. I love to write stories, articles and poems.

2019 was a great year and we had some of the best Pay-Per-Views in WWE. I am going to write about the best moments of the big six WWE Pay-Per-Views (Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Money in the Bank and Survivor Series). I would like to note that I will not be talking about any of the takeovers because, well let’s be honest I will be writing for days about them. Alright, with that being said let me begin this Best Moment of WWE’s 2019 PPVs with the Royal Rumble. If in case you have not seen the 2019 Rumble I would like to warn you, SPOILERS AHEAD.

The Rumble Spectacle

One of the best things about the Royal Rumble is watching Kofi Kingston and seeing how this man is going to escape from elimination at the Royal Rumble. Kofi as usual failed to disappoint us this year, as he survived not once but in two innovative ways.

Firstly he was hanging by a foot and was upside down from the ring. Kingston then just rolled his way to the steps and back into the ring. Then if that wasn’t good enough later on when McIntyre attempts to eliminate Kofi, he gets a second life thanks to his Brother Xavier Woods. Woods catches the feet of Kofi keeping him alive in the match. Woods then carries him to the steps and Kofi still remains in the match. To be fair that was Drew McIntyre then eliminated the last life he had both Woods and Kingston at the same time immediately after they entered the ring.

The Female Kofi Kingstons

We had two other superstars pull a Kofi Kingston in the 2019 Royal Rumble. The first one was Naomi who walked the barricade by using both her arms and legs followed by a gigantic leap from the barricade to the steel steps keeping her alive in the match. After Naomi showed off her athleticism, Kacy Catanzaro from NXT proved why she was a winner in the American Ninja Warrior.

A Hall of Famer Enters the Royal Rumble

A huge shocker in the 2019 Royal Rumble was the unexpected return of ‘Double J’ Jeff Jarrett. He entered Number 2 at the Rumble and it looked like he was going to have a duet with Elias until Elias hit ‘Double J’ with a cheap shot. But damn the Hall of Famer still got it. He has the swag and is still a great wrestler. I felt honored to have seen him wrestle at the Rumble.

A Woman Enters the Men’s Rumble

After failing to win the Women’s Rumble match earlier in the night, Nia Jax ambushed R-truth and stole his spot in the Royal Rumble. I am not going to lie, I was furious about this and adding oil to my flame she even went on to eliminate Mustafa Ali. But then probably the best moment of Rumble’s history was to come. Nia firstly got super-kicked by Dolph Ziggler. This was then followed an epic 619 from Rey Mysterio. The three most dangerous letters in Professional Wrestling then followed the 619. It was so epic after which Rey Mysterio and Orton teamed up to eliminate Nia Jax. This was great to see as for the fans it was like Jax got what she deserves. After ruining Becky’s Survivor Series Match against Ronda Rousey and almost costing Lynch the rumble earlier in the night.

The King-Slayer slays the Monster

2019 was the year of Seth Rollins and it all kicked off at the Royal Rumble where he lasted 43 minutes and eliminated 3 superstars in the process to finally win the whole match. Rollins eliminated Elias, then Bobby Lashley and finally the ‘Monster Among Men’ Braun Strowman to win the Royal Rumble. All it took was a stomp to seal the deal.

‘The Man’ Wins the Royal Rumble

It all started with Lana being injured earlier in the night during the match between Nakamura and her husband Rusev. Lana was badly injured and was unable to compete in the Royal Rumble. And adding insult to injury, Nia Jax while making her entry towards the ring ambushed the injured Lana. This then led to the loudest pop of the night, the entry of ‘the Man’ Becky Lynch. Lynch asked Fit Finlay to put her in the match replacing Lana and the crowd wanted the same. Finlay after a little hesitation he agreed and the Man’s music played and she started walking towards the ring.

Lynch put on a tough fight and finally got her perfect revenge against Nia Jax for ruining her Survivor Series moment in 2018 by shattering Jax’s WrestleMania dreams.This then left the final two women in the match, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. Lynch looked like she lost it but at the final minute she managed to eliminate Charlotte Flair to become the winner of the 2019 Women’s Royal Rumble.
