It's time for the ROYAL RUMBLE!
The Royal Rumble match is my favorite match of the year for several reasons.
1. It is the most action-packed hour of pro wrestling all year.
2. It always features many of the WWE's top superstars.
3. It is the match that earns it winner a world title shot at Wrestlemania, which often ends up the defining match of a wrestling career.
And... with the many statistics it provides, it gives me the opportunity to give Bleacher Report another list!
Presenting... the All-Time Top 30 Royal Rumble Participants!
Here is my points system:
- 1 point for every minute spent in the ring
- 10 points for every elimination
- minus 15 points for every time eliminated
(Just do me a favor: look at the list first before you try to find a flaw in my system. You'll find that the top 30 are pretty solid picks.)
Note: I did not include the 1988 Royal Rumble match in my statistics, since it only featured 20 men.
