Royal Rumble The Greatest Royal Rumble Ever

Discussion in 'PPV's & Specials' started by PSachkovsky, Jan 30, 2013.

  1. Which one of the Royal Rumble PPVs was the best ever?

    I can say that my favorite is the 2001 Royal Rumble. First of all, it was the most star filled PPV in history of the Royal Rumble. Jericho and Benoit had the most amazing ladder match for the Intercontinental title. We had one of the first 'heel vs heel' matches in Triple H vs Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship.
     
  2. 1992, had the best of the best in the match minus Hart and Perfect. Flair won despite being number 3. Just awesome.

    ORDER OF ENTRY:

    British Bulldog
    "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase
    Ric Flair
    Jerry Sags
    Haku
    Shawn Michaels
    Tito Santana
    Barbarian
    Kerry Von Erich
    Repo Man
    Greg "The Hammer" Valentine
    Nikolai Volkoff
    Big Boss Man
    Hercules
    "Rowdy" Roddy Piper
    Jake "The Snake" Roberts
    "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan
    Irwin R. Schyster
    Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
    Undertaker
    Randy "Macho Man" Savage
    Berzerker
    Virgil
    Col. Mustafa
    Rick Martel
    Hulk Hogan
    Skinner
    Sgt. Slaughter
    Sid Justice
    Warlord
     
  3. 99 RR for me. Stone Cold taken away on a gourney and eventually to the hospital. Later he returns to stun the crowd and win the RR.

    EDIT McMahon actually won the RR after second thought.
     
  4. 2001 is the best for me. One of the best Rumbles and one of the best Rumble cards ever.

    Great start to the year, which could have ended up being their best year ever if not for Austin's failed heel turn and the ill-fated Invasion angle later on.
     
  5. 2001 easily. My boy Kane whipped some ass in that rumble and it set up Rock vs Austin at the best WM ever. 2001 was such a great year for WWE
     
  6. 2000, followed closely by 2001 because of my favourite wrester Kane dominating.
     
  7. I forget the year, but the royal rumble where someone put a hit on Stone Cold. When his entry came he came from behind the crowd who was waiting for him in the ring and just dominated
     
  8. 1998...
     
  9. 2004 is my personal favorite, easily. So many great parts of it, and Benoit won which helps it a lot, especially when considering all the factors going into his victory. Granted, as I just said in the other Rumble thread, I've seen very little Rumble matches, including the one from 2001.
     
  10. He came up behind them from the crowd in 1998 (because he stunnered a bunch of Rumble participants leading up to the match, just to piss them off) but 1999 was the one where Vince put a hit out on Austin, saying that anyone who threw him out would collect a huge bounty ($1000 or $100,000, can't remember.)
     
  11. 92 was my favourite.
     
  12. 1995 for sure. British Bulldog vs Shawn Michaels was great.
     
  13. I think it was the RR of 2006, with Rey Mysterio entering at number 2 and winning tha match, I love the way Rey Fights
     
  14. 2004 was pretty good IMO and it doesn't involves the fact that Benoit Won
