According to a Jan. 26 report from SBNation.com, 45-year-old wrestling legend Batista won the WWE Royal Rumble 2014.

Batista, a six-time champ, earned a World Heavyweight Title match at WrestleMania XXX with his victory at the Royal Rumble on Jan. 26 in Pittsburgh, Penn.

He entered the Royal Rumble ring with the No. 28 spot, and utilized his late card slot to his advantage.

Batista's late entry allowed him to have the energy to throw Roman Reigns over the top rope to earn the Royal Rumble victory.

Batista now heads to WrestleMania XXX as the challenger for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt.

Batista, CM Punk, Reigns and Sheamus were the final four contestants in the Royal Rumble.

Not surprisingly, Batista held on for the win.

There were six surprise contestants in the Royal Rumble, including El Torito, JBL, Kane, Kevin Nash and Alexander Rusev.

None were able to do much damage, although El Torito managed to throw one contestant over the top rope.

Reigns and Batista were the final two contestants left in the Royal Rumble, after CM Punk was surprisingly eliminated by Kane.

As expected, Batista came out with his hand raised.

In other Royal Rumble action, the New Age Outlaws upset The Brotherhood to earn the WWE Tag Team Championship belt, and Bray Wyatt defeated Daniel Bryan.

Also on the main PPV card, Brock Lesnar pinned The Big Show, and Randy Orton defeated John Cena.
