There are some Royal Rumble records that will take a hell of an effort to ever be beaten, and some I just do not see going this time.
Santino Marella (2009) holds the fastest elimination, maintaining his place in the Rumble for 1.9 seconds. Watch that elimination again and you'll see how hard it would be for someone to beat that. He only just beat The Warlord's record from 1989 (officially, you can count for yourself).
Another of those I cannot see going for a good long while belongs to the sexiest man in professional wrestling history.
In 2007, it took eight men to force hunk of love Viscera over the top rope, one more competitor than another of Nelson Frazier's alter ego's in Mabel (1994) and two more than Rikishi (2000).
There just isn't a man of that size going at the moment. Big Daddy V did leave All Japan Pro Wrestling in 2012 though, so maybe we'll be treated to his return.
Equally, I would be very surprised if anyone lasts longer than Rey Mysterio's record time from 2006.
One hour, two minutes and 30 seconds, beating Chris Benoit's record by 29 seconds, is such a long time, and whilst the masked luchador may return at the event, I cannot see him sticking around for that long.
My final point will be to note those who have eliminated themselves, which eight people have done.
A year after not showing for the Royal Rumble, the Macho Man had another night to forget as he eliminated himself in 1992.
Drew Carey did the same thing in 2001 when he saw Kane coming to the ring, a wise move considering the mood he was in that night.
The best one would be Andre the Giant, who flung himself over the top rope in 1989 after Jake "The Snake" Roberts introduced his pet snake Damien into the ring.
I hope this has evoked some memories of the uniqueness of the Royal Rumble!
Let me know your predictions for the Rumble, including winners, stand out moments and any records made on the night.
I must thank James Tooze for the Royal Rumble Stat Pack I found all these moments on, which can be found here: http://www.606v2.com/t39486-royal-rumble-stat-pack-2013.
