Despite the fact that the Royal Rumble features 30 Superstars, there are only a few guys each year who can actually be considered a legitimate threat to win the battle royal.
That will be the case again in this year, especially now that WWE has unified the WWE and World heavyweight titles.
Still, many Superstars have made a name for themselves in the Royal Rumble without winning it all. This can be done by eliminating several other men or by staying in the match for a long period of time.
In 1994, Diesel threw out seven competitors, while in 2001, Kane set a record by eliminating more than one-third of the field.
In 1993, Bob Backlund was in the ring for over an hour. Triple H competed for over an hour in 2006. Neither man went on to win the match.
Here, we will take a look at some Superstars who could accomplish one of those feats this year, despite the fact that their eventual elimination from the match is inevitable.
