The 30 best Royal Rumblers ever!

#1 Shawn Michaels

Yes, Shawn Michaels is Mr. WrestleMania, but he’s also the greatest performer in Royal Rumble Match history. The winner of back-to-back contests in 1995 and ’96, HBK competed in the over-the-top-rope classic 12 times, racking up the record for most eliminations of all-time with 40. His incredible two wins place him in esteemed company, as Hulk Hogan, John Cena and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin are the only other Superstars in WWE history to be multi-time winners of the iconic contest. Any discussion about Royal Rumble Match greats starts — and ends — with The Showstopper.
