Rhea Ripley and Cody Rhodes win Royal Rumble 2023, but with injuries

As for the Women's Royal Rumble, the Australian Rhea Ripley triumphed, who is now called to make a choice for who wants to challenge in the WrestleMania main event between the Raw champion Bianca Belair and the SmackDown champion Charlotte Flair.

Speaking in the post-Royal Rumble conference, The Eradicator confessed that she didn't exactly come out of the match unscathed, however, as she still entered at number one after also taking a spear from Beth Phoenix during the Men's Rumble when Judgment Day argued with the returning Edge: "I'm obviously in a bad way.

My knees aren't very good in general. My knee dislocated for a second, and then it came back in. I feel fine now, and because of all my emotions, I'm just elated, so I'm blocking out everything else. If anything, I can smell the blood in my nose, and that's definitely there, but my knee is fine."

If Rhea Ripley confessed that all the pain went away with her knee that only for a moment played a bad joke on her and risked not letting her win, Cody Rhodes interviewed on the microphones of Ryan Satin for Fox Sports, reported a minor injury, but definitely annoying.

"My eardrum burst tonight, but I don't care. It was just a great Royal Rumble." From how Cody talks it seems that it is nothing serious that could hinder his Road to Wrestlemania, but obviously we will keep you updated on any news on the injury.

This year most people managed to guess the two winners of the respective Royal Rumbles which were held within the homonymous Premium Live Event organized as every year by WWE. Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan definitely exceeded expectations in the women's Royal Rumble match.

The two have in fact broken a staggering record previously held by Bianca Belair. Ripley and Morgan were in fact the first to enter the ring, both surviving until the end of the actual brawl. The Eradicator became the fourth superstar in Rumble history to enter first and take the overall victory.

Rhea and Liv were in the ring for a total of 1 hour, 1 minute and 3 seconds. The previous record belonged to Bianca Belair, who had stopped at 57 minutes and 10 seconds in the 2021 edition. It remains to be seen whether the Judgment Day exponent will continue to chase the Raw Women's Championship.
