As we cross the frontier into the 24th annual Royal Rumble match, many of us have stopped to ponder whether or not this first-time 40-man battle royal can live up to any of the 23 previous matches before it.
Truth be told, the Rumble has consistently been one of the best matches to watch every year.
This is not to say that there haven't been a few duds in the system as well. If anything, ranking the Rumbles is an arduous task that I feel needs to be taken on with particular tact and grace.
Since I have both (and sometimes neither), I present to you a comprehensive countdown on the Royal Rumble.
Time to go from worst to first and see where it leaves us.
