RUMBLE FACTS:

  • This is John Cena’s second Royal Rumble Match victory. In his first win in 2008, he lasted 8:27 and eliminated four competitors (Carlito, Mark Henry, Chavo Guerrero and Triple H).
  • Cena is the fourth Superstar to win multiple Royal Rumble Matches. The others are all Hulk Hogan (1990 and 1991), Shawn Michaels (1995 and 1996) and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin (1997, 1998  and 2001). All three are WWE Hall of Famers.
  • Cena is the first Superstar to win the Royal Rumble Match as entrant No. 19.
  • Kane participated in his record 15th Royal Rumble Match.
  • Last year, Sheamus won the Royal Rumble Match while lasting less time (22:21) than he did this year.
  • Bo Dallas was the longest-lasting rookie and lasted longer than all three members of 3MB combined. Only five Superstars (Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho, Cena, Sheamus and Cody Rhodes) lasted longer than Dallas.
  • Nine nationalities were represented in the 2013 Royal Rumble Match: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Mexico, Switzerland, Ghana, Italy and India.
