The Celtic Warrior is still a relative newbie in the WWE Universe, and it wouldn't shock me in the slightest to see him elevated much higher on lists of this variety in the future.
Still, with that in mind, for the time being at least, Sheamus' solitary victory back in 2012 is not enough to earn him anywhere higher than the last place on this elite selection of Superstars. Not exactly the greatest insult in the world given some of the names that are to follow.
14. Bret Hart
The Hit Man also finds himself lower than some might have perhaps imagined. In truth, with only a shared victory at the 1994 Rumble to his name, Bret Hart has never truly been the "last" man standing in a Rumble match.
That being said, being the first man to ever enter a Royal Rumble earns him some kudos in the record books at least. Plus, the way he dealt with The King back in 1997 always brings a smile to everyone's face.
13. The Rock
Now, here's what I imagine will be a really unpopular call. As much as The Rock is an absolute legend of the business, he has remarkably only ever entered into four of the 27 Rumble matches ever held.
Winning one of those (2000) and finishing third (2001) and second (1998) in two others is the only thing that earns Rocky a spot on this list ahead of other notable wrestlers at all. Amazingly, The Rock has made less than 11 eliminations in Rumble history.
The Animal has entered and won just as many Rumbles as Rocky, but has notably eliminated a lot more opponents in the process. Thirteen men tossed out in just four appearances works out at an average of over three per match (my maths skills are clearly second to none). Nothing too special, but with his win in 2005 Batista, who may soon be set for a comeback, well and truly earns his spot here.
11. The Big Show
Here's one of the two men on this list who haven't ever won a Rumble. Show has made more final-six appearances than nearly any other Superstar in history, and boasting 25 cumulative eliminations to his name, it would be a crime not to acknowledge the effort and spectacle that The Big Show has brought to this most exciting of pay-per-views.
When you're over seven feet tall, it is unlikely that you will ever be gifted a Rumble victory. WWE likes to play on the fantastical and unimaginable. The biggest guy in the match practically never wins.
Unfortunately for Show, that "biggest guy" is usually him. A loyal servant to the WWE since his arrival, he more than rightfully earns a spot on the list higher than a handful of men who have won the big one. I mean, he is "the big one" after all.
