25 Stunning Royal Rumble Match statistics

Number of Superstars to win consecutive Royal Rumble Matches: 3

Winning one Royal Rumble is a Herculean task in and of itself. To do it two years in succession is almost unthinkable. Yet three of WWE’s most decorated Superstars have done the unimaginable, winning back-to-back Rumble matches on their way to becoming WWE Hall of Famers. Hulk Hogan was the first, claiming victory in 1990 and 1991. No. 1 entrant Shawn Michaels came one foot away from elimination in 1995, but rebounded to win that year’s contest and the following. The last Superstar to outlast 29 combatants in consecutive years was “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, winning the 1997 and 1998 Royal Rumble Matches.
