25 Stunning Royal Rumble Match statistics

Number of Superstars who won their Royal Rumble Match debut: 9

Beginner’s luck sometimes makes all the difference. Incredibly, nine Superstars have won the Royal Rumble Match in their very first entry into the melee. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Big John Studd, Yokozuna, Lex Luger, Mr. McMahon and Brock Lesnar all won the Rumble Match on their first try. The most successful Royal Rumble rookie, arguably, is Ric Flair, who won the 1992 Royal Rumble Match, and with it, the WWE Championship. The most recent Superstar to triumph in his first Rumble appearance was Alberto Del Rio in 2011, just months after his WWE debut.
