The Royal Rumble isn't always about winning, as sometimes it is about the performance itself. Several superstars in WWE history were able to launch and/or build their WWE careers on strong individual performances.
Whether it be eliminations, length of stay or style points in victory, the list of great Royal Rumble performances can easily be confused with a mini WWE Hall of Fame.
Individual efforts will be judged based on key statistics and how dominant they were historically. These statistics include eliminations, time spent in the Royal Rumble, dramatic effect and of course how the Rumble in question was won.
One will be hard-pressed to find many flukes who can lay claim to the honor of standing out at the Rumble. That honor is often reserved for WWE Superstars who the office can trust to deliver on what is arguably wrestling's second-biggest stage.
