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.

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.

Entry #9


Entry #9

The number #9 entry number is perhaps one of the most unusual in Royal Rumble history, producing a mixed bag of names, faces and results. It seems that the more prestigious the superstar, the more badly they perform, and the more unknown they are, the better they perform. Unless you’re Billy Gunn of course. Follow the link to look at the number chosen by both the heaviest and lightest contestants of all time, luck-chancers, masked men and budding Heartbreak Kids.

Entry #8


Entry #8

It wasn’t until the last five years that entering at the #8 spot meant even coming close to winning the Royal Rumble (only three superstars have yet to outlast the entire entry process), although it has produced a recent winner. Follow the link and look at a number drawn either by wrestlers with dubious gimmicks or current and future Hall of Famers, and see who proved to be the more successful.

Entry #7


Entry #7

It might be a lot of people’s lucky number, but #7 has yet to create a Royal Rumble winner in 26 attempts – perhaps because it keeps being drawn by the same people – two superstars account for five #7 entrants over the years. Still, it has got a couple of superstars close to winning, but for the most part is a pretty average number. Have a look and see who walked in at the #7 spot.

Entry #6


Entry #6

It may not have produced a winner just yet, but the entry #6 has brought a variety of people into the Royal Rumble match over the years, including elimination thirsty record breakers, the first female entrant in 10 years, a reigning King of the Ring and an imitation Goldberg. Use some of your time to look at who came in, how long they lasted, and who, if anybody, came close to winning.

Entry #5


Entry #5

The #5 spot may have catapulted Stone Cold Steve Austin into the spotlight and his first WWF Championship, but it’s not been too lucky for many others. It does however tend to repeat itself, having been drawn more than once by three different people, and by one particular superstar 3 times out of the 6 Royal Rumble matches he’s been in. From entrants like Randy Savage, Rikishi and Edge, to ones like Drew Carey, take a look at a number that’s produced a wide variety of results.

Entry #4


Entry #4 - 2014

They might always say that entering at #1 might be the worst way to enter the Royal Rumble match, but looking at #4, they may be wrong. It’s the lowest entry number to have not produced a winner, and has only ever got a contestant even close to winning on one occasion, with the majority of the entrants finishing in the bottom half of the final results each year. For the full results, follow the link.

Entry #3


 Entry #3 - 2014

Ric Flair may have won the Royal Rumble from the #3 spot in 1992 and picked up the WWF Championship along with it, but ever since then drawing this number has been mostly reserved for comedy entrants, rookies and fake Razor Ramons, meaning that it isn’t the best number to get, especially when half of all #3 entrants are the first man eliminated. Take a look at the number that gets the first countdown from 10 before entering the match.

Entry #2


Entry #2 - 2014

Although technically just as unlucky as the #1 spot, and for the most part regarded as less prestigious, the #2 entry number has had its fair few successes, producing two winners and Iron Men, as well as its failures – the #2 entrant is the most likely to be eliminated first. From Rey Mysterio’s record breaking victory to Vince McMahon’s out and out cheating, here’s a look at those that were there for the opening bell.
