Entry 31 – 40


The 2011 was the first and, as yet, only Royal Rumble match to feature 40 entrants. With the 2012 Rumble reverting back to 30 entrants, a select group of 10 superstars all hold a unique Royal Rumble entry number to their name. The #31 – #40 entrants set a number of new records, and one of them went all the way to win the match. For the full story, follow the link.

Entry #30


Entry #30

The #30 is traditionally the luckiest number in Royal Rumble history, granting whoever drew it the final entrance into the match (except for 1988 & 2011). However, it wasn’t until recent years that the last man in won the whole match, and it happened twice in a row. Over the years it’s proven to be an interesting number, producing several runners-up, the first female entrant and one particular superstar has been lucky enough to enter the match last three times in his career.

Entry #29


Entry #29

Being the penultimate entrant has allowed just two men to win the Royal Rumble match over the years, and thanks to their late entry, they both managed to do it in under ten minutes. And due to the fact that most people have been eliminated by the time the #29 arrives, only a handful of 29ers have failed to make it into the final few superstars. For the more, follow the link.

Entry #28


Entry #28

Despite being one of the better numbers to draw over the years, only one person has managed to win the Royal Rumble after entering just two men from the end, and even that was surrounded by controversy. Some of the WWE’s most well-known faces and consistent Royal Rumble entrants have entered at the number since 1989, and it remains the only number that Kane has drawn twice, despite being in 14 matches so far. It also plays host to the shortest ever time spent in a Royal Rumble match. For the full list of every #28 entrant, follow the link.

Entry #27


Entry #27

Entry #27 is statistically the best performing Royal Rumble entry number in history, with four men winning the match from #27 since 1989. It’s had it’s fair share of duds though, especially in recent years. It’s also the number at which Kane made his first of his record setting Royal Rumble appearances, but not as you usually see him.

Entry #26


Entry #26

Entry #26 has proven to be a great equalizer over the years, with various superstars of different size, stature and significance lasting just seconds within each other over and over again; including Rick Martel, who entered at 26 for two years running, and was only one second away from lasting the same amount of time on both occasions. Despite its consistency, it has yet to produce a winner, but has racked up a couple of runners up. For the full details, follow the link.

Entry #25


Entry #25

Thanks to it’s position towards the end of the Royal Rumble, the entry #25 usually delivers whoever draws it to the final stages of the match, with 19 men making it into the top ten that year. There are those that manage to mess up their good fortune however, especially one superstar who failed to show after ‘eating too much’ before the match. To see who that was, and who else entered at #25, follow the link.

Entry #24


Entry #24

The entry #24 is second only to #27 for producing the most amount of Royal Rumble winners, with three men claiming victory as a #24. Other contestants have been a bit ropey, but thanks to being a late number to draw, it’s taken some eternal mid-card superstars into the final part of the match. To see who drew #24 and just how they did, follow the link.

Entry #23


Entry #23

Some of the largest men in Royal Rumble history have entered the match at #23, as have some of the smallest. Yet it’s those in between that have performed the best, including a victory for Lex Luger, who became one of only two men to win the same Royal Rumble match. Since then, a few more have come close, but that may have to do with entering near the end more than anything else. Follow the link for more.

Entry #22


Entry #22

The entry number 22 has provided two winners and is one of the most impressive entry numbers in Royal Rumble history. It’s 25 years worth of good performances means it has one of the highest average times in the ring, and one of the highest number of total eliminations, boosted mostly by John Cena’s 2011 appearance. It’s not without it’s fair share of duds however, bearing in mind that between 1997 & 1998, the #22 entrants clocked up a measly 4 seconds of in ring time between them. For more on the #22, follow the link below.
