Hey everyone! It's The Wrestling Classic here with another list for ONE37pm.
The Royal Rumble is just around the corner and it has always been a favorite of mine. I always look forward to the Royal Rumble event, because it really is the kick-off for the Road to Wrestlemania. The first-ever Royal Rumble took place in 1988. In 1993, the winners of the annual battle royal would be granted the main event spot at Wrestlemania for the World Championship which added more stakes to the match and set the tone for Wrestlemania.
The match is normally a 30 man battle-royal, although the original match had 20 participants, and in 2011 they had 40 men in the rumble due to an overly stacked roster. The Rumble usually features returns or surprise appearances and sometimes even wrestlers from other promotions. In 2018, they introduced a second battle royal for the women at the height of the women's revolution. There have been 34 Royal Rumbles in total and they are all fun to watch. However, I narrowed it down to my favorite 15 Royal Rumble matches. Let me know if you agree.
