Cody Rhodes is a Royal Rumble winner again, defeating 29 other WWE stars in this year’s 30-Man Royal Rumble match on Saturday night in Tampa, Florida.

Rhodes reached this milestone last year, when he returned to WWE after a months-long absence due to injury. He unsuccessfully challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 39.

He secured a championship match at WrestleMania 40 by winning this year’s Rumble in April. The bout came down to Rhodes and CM Punk. After that, Rhodes continued to stare at Reigns, who was watching the match from a press box, implying that they would rematch at Mania.

As seen below, Rhodes appeared to pay tribute to The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks) with his too-sweet signature and Omega’s gun signature.
