25 Stunning Royal Rumble Match statistics

Superstars who eliminated themselves: 9

For reasons mostly known only to themselves, nine Superstars have the dubious distinction of having eliminated themselves in the Royal Rumble Match, and some of the names might surprise the WWE Universe: Andre the Giant tossed himself in 1989, “Macho Man” Randy Savage made a self-imposed exit in 1992 that was later ignored; Faarooq (aka Ron Simmons), Ahmed Johnson and Mil Máscaras sent themselves over the top rope in 1997; Kane, Mick Foley and MVP did the same in 1999, 2004 and 2010, respectively, and celebrity entrant Drew Carey made a quick exit from the match in 2001 after Kane made his entrance into the contest.
