Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch earn title shots with Rumble victories.
Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey, Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch were the big winners at Sunday's Royal Rumble PPV in Phoenix, Arizona, as both former UFC stars retained their titles, while Rollins and Lynch outlasted the 29 other competitors in the men's and women's Royal Rumble matches.
As a result of their battle royal victories, Rollins and Lynch have both earned title matches at Wrestlemania 35 in April. It is believed that Rollins will go after Lesnar and Lynch will challenge Rousey.
The lenghty 2019 Royal Rumble PPV also saw Daniel Bryan retain the WWE Championship with a little help from a returning Erick Rowan, and Shane McMahon and the Miz defeating The Bar for the Smackdown Tag Team titles.
With the annual Royal Rumble event now in the rearview, WWE's "Road To Wrestlemania" is set to kickoff tonight on Monday Night Raw.
