The men’s Royal Rumble bout was Royal Rumble’s Premium Live Event in San Antonio, Texas, which served as the event’s opening act. The winner was set up for a bout against Roman Reigns in the WrestleMania main event. Cody Rhodes made his comeback and won WWE Royal Rumble 2023

The story that made the most sense ended up playing out exactly as it was planned, with Rhodes entering at number 30 and eliminating Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER at the very end. Gunther had entered the match first and had turned out to be the ultimate Iron Man, surviving longer than any other competitor in the annals of the Royal Rumble.

Cody Rhodes is fortunate to come back

Rhodes said, I was very fortunate that when I came back, I had enough experience that I didn’t, I always need structure and I need direction. You gus have seen me without a leash before I get a little wild.”

He continued saying, “So, it was great to have that structure but I have had a unbelievable experience and unbelievable education in wrestling. Really I am not meant to do anything else, this is what I do. So, it was easy then. When I came back and Vince was incharge of that and it is easy now.”

“Because the way I look at it and I mean, I don’t mean this to many like braggadocio arrogance is and this is something that I talked about with one of my kids in school is if I am best, then it doesn’t matter who is showing me where to go and telling me what’s next.”

If I’m best, if my transaction is simple, these fan pay their money and I make them feel something, and I can do better than anybody if I can.”
