Let the Road to WrestleMania begin, right? As many of you know, the Royal Rumble is singularly my favorite event and match of all-time. While the Internet will be flooded with reports, rumors, and preposterous predictions over what will happen at the first pay-per-view of 2011, I'd like to humbly submit my own commentary with some historical perspective.
After all, it was just under a year ago I started writing for Bleacher Report with, you guessed it, five Royal Rumble articles ranking the Top 50 moments in Rumble history. This article, however, brings in some statistical nightmares and tries to make sense of the science behind the Rumble rather than the odds of one man returning and/or winning the match.
Warning! Entertainment approaching in Rumble-esque content!
