WWE Royal Rumble highlights: Drew McIntyre eliminates Roman Reigns

Drew McIntyre had been touted as a future WWE champion ever since he made his return to the company in 2017. He finally received his massive push on Royal Rumble when he eliminated Brock Lesnar after a record-tying performance by 'The Beast Incarnate'. Lesnar entered at No.1 and eliminated 13 men in a row, becoming the first WWE Superstar to do so. He also tied the elimination record in the process. However, Drew McIntyre stunned the entire universe when he eliminated Lesnar from behind and thereby established himself as the top contender in the match. 

McIntyre entered the match as the 16th entrant and enjoyed a dominating performance throughout. After eliminating Brock Lesnar, McIntyre continued his streak when he manhandled Ricochet before tossing him out of the ring. With the returning Edge hogging all the spotlight, Drew McIntyre made sure that he made his opportunity count and eliminated Roman Reigns just after the 'Big Dog' eliminated Edge. The Irish wrestler couldn't contain his emotions after the hard-fought victory that earned him the right to headline WrestleMania.

Drew McIntyre, who was released by the company in 2014 after an underwhelming stint, went to TNA to hone his skills as a wrestler and become a top draw in the independent circuit. McIntyre made his triumphant return to WWE in 2017. After a strong start in NXT, he was sent to RAW in 2018. Despite being on the scene for almost two years, this is the biggest push he has received in his WWE career. And fans surely loved seeing the 34-year-old winning the Royal Rumble match.
