Royal Rumble 1988
Many things have changed since 1988. The first-ever Royal Rumble Match featured twenty Superstars, and was shown on the USA Network, not on pay-per-view. Future WWE Champion Bret "Hitman" Hart was the first man to ever enter a Rumble Match, and "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan was the first winner.
