Yokozuna (spot No. 27) wins the Royal Rumble Match

At more than 500 pounds, Yokozuna was a clear threat to do damage in the 1993 Royal Rumble Match. But when he drew late No. 27, it made him an instant favorite. With his sheer weight and girth, Superstars struggled to lift him over the top rope. With his force, he eliminated the likes of fellow big man Earthquake and lastly "Macho Man" Randy Savage to claim victory. Yokozuna powered his way to glory, setting a new record at the time with seven eliminations. Bob Backlund, amid a WWE comeback, made a strong showing. This match also saw the shocking presence of the Giant Gonzalez, who immediately targeted Undertaker.
