Cody Rhodes finally returned to the WWE after a torn pectoral muscle to win the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match. Cody came out at #30 and managed to eliminate five wrestlers: Dominik Mysterio, Austin Theory, Braun Strowman, Logan Paul and GUNTHER to win. GUNTHER was eliminated last but has nothing to be upset about. He ties Rhodes for most eliminations in the match and had the most time in the match, breaking the traditional record held by Rey Mysterio. GUNTHER was in the match for over an hour and ten minutes.

Rhodes now has a shot at the Undisputed WWE Universal title, currently held by Roman Reigns.
