Mr Main Event's Favorite Royal Rumble Favorites

In the past 30 days, I have watched each Royal Rumble at one point. So Here are some of my favorite moments.

Best Royal Rumble Performance

Shawn Michaels and British Bulldog 1995
They were the first two and last two

Worse Performance

The Warlord
He was the first to be eliminated immediately after entering.

Best Royal Rumble Winner

Stone Cold Steve Austin
3 Royal Rumble wins, Two WWE Championships following his wins, enough said

Most Pointless Royal Rumble Winner

Hacksaw Jim Duggan
All he will be known as the first to ever win the Royal Rumble, but just like Big John Studd and Lex Luger, he has never been a WWE Champion. Obviously this was before the Royal Rumble had any type of prestige, but still.....

Best Championship Match on the Undercard
Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit
In my opinion, this is one of the best matches I have ever seen in the history of the sport. There was no clear cut winner and so many near falls. It is a shame this match has been erased from the WWE's library. 

Worse Match on the Undercard

Ahmed Johnson vs Farooq
The only thing good about this match was the build up. There was a great story leading into this match, but there was absolutely no payoff.

Most Entertaining Segment During the Royal Rumble Match

CM Punk 2010
With CM Punk being the Straight Edge Society leader, it was very interesting seeing him try to save the WWE Universe during the Royal Rumble

Best Save from Royal Rumble Elimination
John Morrison 2011
Morrison was thrown over the top ropes and he made a spiderman like grab onto the barricade and walked across in order to get back into the room.

Most Controversial Finish

Bret Hart and Lex Luger Co Winners 1994
Watching both guys fight to the end, only to both hit the floor at the same time was very interesting. The WWE did a great job with both guys receiving a title shot at WrestleMania
