Braun Strowman is your WWE Greatest Royal Rumble winner, having delivered one of the most dominant monster performances in the bout's 30-year history.

A heavy pre-match betting favourite, the big man entered at number 41, and the bodies started flying soon after. WWE purposefully loaded the match with midcarders for Braun to toss. The likes of Heath Slater, Titus O'Neil, and Curt Hawkins all fell by his hand, along with more notable names like Chris Jericho and Bobby Lashley.

It eventually came down to Strowman and Big Cass. The former 'Realest Guy In The Room' had Braun reeling, but Strowman cut him off, crotched him on the top rope, then scored the decisive elimination.

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and a Saudi Arabian dignitary presented Braun with the Greatest Royal Rumble trophy and a commemorative green belt afterwards, and the show went off the air with a huge fireworks display.

'The Monster Among Men' eliminated 13 wrestlers in total, which is a new Rumble record, beating the 12 performers Roman Reigns threw out in 2014. His victory doesn't guarantee a WWE Title shot, but it should serve as a nice rebound following his divisive Tag Title win at WrestleMania 34.
