The 2016 Royal Rumble is officially in the books and while it threw up a dramatic conclusion and crowned a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, a lot of fans were left disappointed.

Triple H entered the Rumble in the number 30 slot and would go on to eliminate the now former champion Roman Reigns before claiming the title for himself by eliminating Dean Ambrose.

Left wanting more..... again

Tonight saw the first time in two years where the winner of the Royal Rumble wasn't greeted by a chorus of boos ringing around the arena, but that may not necessarily be a good thing.

The general consensus around the arena seemed to be joy that Roman Reigns didn't defend his title rather than joy at Triple H becoming the Champion.

Where the WWE go from here is apparently anyone's guess but there are many fans who are unhappy with their new champion.

Those who took to Twitter had some very stern messages to the WWE about their thoughts on the Rumble match.

A lot of fans looked at how the WWE would be affected due to tonight's result while others made some declarations.

It goes without saying that a large section of the WWE Universe have been left with a sour taste in their mouth after the 2016 Royal Rumble.

Not everyone was so negative though.

Aside from the dramatic finish, the fans were left in amazement following one huge debut in the Rumble match.

AJ Arrives

The third entrant in the Royal Rumble brought the debut of AJ Styles in the WWE as he would go on to spend quite a while in the ring.

The crowd were loud every time he was in action and an AJ Styles chant started up several times throughout.

Styles would go on to be eliminated late on but he put in a great showing in his WWE debut and the crowd showed their joy at his arrival.
