WWE.com's All-Time Royal Rumble Match

The Royal Rumble Match: a melee of maddening proportions, a frenetic free-for-all where only the strongest survive and legends are forged in the quest for a World Championship Match at WrestleMania. First established 25 years ago, the rules of the iconic fray are simple: Two Superstars begin, one-on-one in the ring. At timed intervals, a new competitor is loosed from the locker room and the match grows and grows, snowballing into chaos until one Superstar is left standing. Pinfalls and submissions have no bearing in the Royal Rumble Match. An elimination can only occur by tossing an opponent over the top rope, with both of his feet touching the arena floor. To the victor goes the ultimate spoil: an opportunity at a World Title of his choosing at that year’s WrestleMania.

The fracas has included anywhere from 20 to 40 Superstars in its quarter-century history, and the cast of hundreds who have re-emerged from retirement for a chance at victory numbers far and wide. But who would win in an all-time Royal Rumble Match? Well, WWE.com scoured the record books, poured over the stats and assembled this list of 30 winners, losers and unmitigated monsters who have dominated in the past and would raise hell in the future. Without further ado, here’s our entrants for an all-time Royal Rumble Match. May the best man (or woman) win.
