Look away now if you don't want to know who won last night's Royal Rumble

If you chose bed over staying up late and haven’t recorded it to watch later, however, step right this way.

AN OLD FAVOURITE returned to the WWE last night to lend a helping hand to this year’s Royal Rumble winner.

The 30-man event, held at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center, was won by Roman Reigns — who had entered at number 16.

Reigns was left with Big Show, Kane and Rusev in the final four when former wrestler turned Hollywood star The Rock tipped the odds in his favour. The former NFL hopeful, who had short-lived spells with the Minnesota Vikings and the Jacksonville Jaguars, will now face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31.

The Rock wasn’t the only surprise entrant as Bubba Ray Dudley and Diamond Dallas Page also showed up.

Many fans were left extremely disappointed with the result, however, and #CancelWWENetwork was even trending worldwide on Twitter afterwards.

How long would you last in the Royal Rumble?
