The Royal Rumble is one of the most iconic events in sports entertainment history. A staple of the WWE calendar, it is seen as something of a new beginning for the company every year, kicking off new storylines as 60 hopeful superstars look to claim their spot in the main event of WrestleMania and win a major championship.

Over the years, we've seen legendary superstars win the Rumble match, including The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Asuka, and Becky Lynch. Each one of them (and so many more) have gone on to produce iconic WrestleMania moments that will live on forever. And with that, all sights turned to the 2024 edition to see who is destined to do it this year.

Of course the men's and women's Royal Rumble matches weren't the only draws on the card, as there was also an Undisputed WWE Championship bout that saw Roman Reigns defend against LA Knight, Randy Orton, and AJ Styles, as well as a US Title contest that saw Logan Paul defend the gold against Kevin Owens.

But when all was said and done at the Royal Rumble 2024, which matches of the evening stole the show and which ones left something to be desired? Here's our recap and results of the event, ranking all of the matches while we're at it.
