Entry #10


Entry #10

Only one person to have entered the Royal Rumble at #10 has ever made it beyond the top ten superstars that year, and it took 22 years to do it. For the most part its a number drawn by old superstars trying out new gimmicks – models, repossessors and one man with his tongue removed. Have a look at who drew the first double-digit number over the Royal Rumble’s 26 year history.

  2. The 1-2-3 Kid lasted 17:38 in 1996, not 15:40. I guess Wiki is incorrect. He gets chased in and around the ring by Razor Ramon, but he enters the ring at 16:22 and is eliminated at exactly 34:00.
