Entry #17


Entry #17

The #17 entry number has proven to be one of most repetitive in Royal Rumble history, with a total of four superstars entering at the number twice in their careers, and almost half of all the entrants lasting less than 90 seconds, and being eliminated before the next entrant arrived. Although, it might not be without a little success, it’s a number typically reserved for perennial mid and low carders – only two #17s have won a World championship in WWE, but there are three Kings of the Ring, a couple of ECW champions and one of the two men who main evented the very first episode of Monday Night Raw.

Entry #16


Entry #16

The fortunes of the 16th entrant have proven to be like a fine wine, as the performances of the superstars that enter at #16 get better with age – it wasn’t until 2006 that the 20 minute mark was reached, and somebody made it into the final ten contestants that year. Since then, three of the superstars who were #16 have held a major championship within one year, but I don’t quite see that happening with Bo Dallas. See who else (besides Bo) has drawn #16 and just how well they did.

Entry #15


Entry #15

The entry number (usually) means you came in halfway through the match, meaning that superstars entering at the number have no particular advantage or disadvantage. Despite some big names drawing the number its the more mediocre wrestlers that have made the most of the halfway house, although the up and coming Cody Rhodes stands as the man with the best record as the fifteenth entrant. Follow the link to see who else has entered at #15, of which a surprising amount have a similar goatee.

Entry #14


Entry #14

The entry #14 has thrown out a variety of different superstars over the years, some good, some not so good. Over the years it has gained a reputation as the ‘cursed’ number, with many wrestlers careers taken a downturn after drawing it. It has proven to be consistent with its results however, with a lot of superstars matching previous performances in terms of times, eliminations and final results. It has yet however, to produce a winner, or even get someone into the Final Four contestants, but has come within a whisker of doing so on quite a few occasions. Follow the link to see who has entered every Royal Rumble at #14.

Entry #13


Entry #13

The #13 proved to be the luckiest number of all in the very first Royal Rumble back in 1988, when Jim Duggan sailed home to victory when he entered at that spot. Since then the #13 entrant has yet to match Duggan’s success, with only The Rock coming close to victory in 2001. As a middle of the road number, it’s fittingly produced a medley of middle of the road results – thanks to some middle of the road superstars. It’s not without its share of interesting statistics however, as it’s a number that often finds itself falling foul of the eventual winner. Follow the link to have a look at who entered at the cursed number.

Entry #12


Entry #12

So far the #12 entry number has proven to be a number for repeat offenders, as two men have both entered in the spot twice over their careers, and one superstar even managed to eliminate the #12 entrant for two Royal Rumbles in a row, be eliminated by #12 the next and then found himself drawing that number the following year. The twelfth entry position has also said both hello and goodbye to various superstars and gimmicks, all to a varying degree of success.

Entry #11


Entry #11

Despite some (relatively) big names drawing the #11 spot, its the likes of Carlito, Mabel & Maven that have given the number any degree of notoriety – Maven perhaps most of all. Still, there are a handful of #11s that made it into the final few contestants, such as Sheamus & Chris Jericho, who have reached the top ten superstars on three occasions after entering at #11. Follow the link to see who’s entered at the number, as well as their impressive array of headwear.
