WrestleMania is undoubtedly WWE’s most prestigious event of the year, but the Royal Rumble might be the most consistently entertaining annual event on the schedule. The classic 30-man and 30-woman bouts are always filled with surprises and comebacks, and there’s nothing quite like the anticipation of each countdown to the next entrant.
Before Sunday’s Royal Rumble on the WWE Network, WWE is running a live stream of five different Royal Rumble matches on YouTube. If you don’t want to spend your entire Friday watching wrestling, here are five full matches that are free to watch on YouTube.
2018: The inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble
2013: The one Ryback almost won
2012: MichaEL Cole lasts 83 seconds
2008: Cena’s Back
2017: AJ Styles vs. John Cena
The Styles-Cena feud was one of WWE’s best in recent years, and Cena delivered arguably the finest in-ring performances of his career against Styles.
