2001 - Kane
Puts on a performance of a lifetime. Eliminates 11 wrestlers - stays in for 53 minutes

Who else
>>
Beeg in 2000
>>
Jericho last year

Spent 45 minutes in the corner yelling orders and directing the match
>>
can someone shop Kane onto this instead of Austin
>>
>>2159037
Pretty much the frontrunner this year until the undercarder put his hat in the race.
>>
2015 - Rusev
>>
I know I know but 2014 reigns would've been over like a mutha if he won
>>
>>2159046
I've never seen a crowd hotter for Rusev than when he came back into the ring.
>>
>>2159030
2000 one was a cluster f*^k for sure. I thought rikishi had a good showing that year.
>>
>>2159053
Yeah, me too... Broke my heart when based dog elminated him.
>>
>>2159045
Kek no he wasn't
>>
1990 mr.perfect would've been a nice moment
>>
>>2159022
>>2159022
Agreed. Kane was over as fuck in 2001, he should have won the damn thing.
>>
>>2159102
I cannot see Kane vs Rock doing the same business as Austin vs Rock did

And Kane got a push after Wrestlemania with the Undercarder and it was a disaster
>>
>>2159022
The Royal Rumble stakes are so massive, main eventing Wrestlemania for a World Title, that it kind of ruins any chance of a truly surprising winner.

>>2159113
Could've still won and lost his spot to Austin like McMahon did in 99
>>
Diesel in 1994
>>
>>2159118
>Vince booking himself to go over
>Surprising
Pick one.
>>
>>2159119
well Austin was still in the middle of a major feud with HHH so it would not really have worked out because Kane and Austin would have to have a big match on the ppv before Mania
>>
Roman Reigns - 2014
>>
>>2159022
Jericho should have won in 2012 not Sheamus.
>>
>>2159119
Then you'd complain about how winning the rumble is meaningless.
>>
Cody in 2012
>entered as number 3
>shit rumble
>literally only A+ star was Orton
>implying d-bry's push was from his squashing by sheamus
>>
>>2159046
That titantron
>>
2012 for Jericho. Didn't win because of how predictable it was, yet in the following years every predictable winner has gone on to win. Thanks Vince, you old cock sucker.
>>
>>2159113
>Undercarder

Nice meme
>>
>>2159118
Only really surprising one in recent years was Alberto Del Rio.

Yeah though a surprise winner is definitely impossible due to the stakes.
>>
>>2159258
This.

It was HIS Rumble. Some weeks ago I was expecting him to win this year, but then Roman happended
>>
Daniel Bryan, 2014
Daniel Bryan, 2015
>>
Daniel Bryan 2014 and 2015
>>
>>2159037
A rare example of a good idea from WWE.

The last few Rumbles before that were fucking awful, so they put an elder statesman out there early who could direct traffic.

Jericho did it fantastically too. He'd be a good Road Agent if he ever wanted to go that route after he retires.
>>
faggot marks still crying about Bryan in 2015. Shameful that Vince can get you fuckers to mark out with such a simple piece of booking.

How? That run made BoD into one of the greatest tag teams ever. Kane and Taker were getting massive pops back then.
>>
>>2159022
Didn't Hogan eliminate the Sid Vicious because he eliminated him at 92?

Christ Hogan was such a cunt.
>>
>>2159037
Jerigoat. Absolute superstar being 40 something helping out around the match
>>
>>2159497
>>2159500
Agree, the reaction from the crowd would had been a sight to see.
>>
>>2159758
Flair won that year I'm okay with that. I assume hogan didn't want to job to flair that year.
>>
>>2159895
He won because Hogan pulled Sid out of the ring
>>
>>2159053
Too bad the crowd reaction for him was just by proxy of everyone hating roman
>>
>>2159129

i got u anon

I would've order that ppv
>>
>>2162796
>Austin does not turn heel and wrestling does not die that day
>>
>>2162803
>Kane vs Rock
>Austin vs BEEG vs Raven hardcore match
Vincent would have basically printed money
>>
>>2162796
This render of Kane blends in well with the poster. Why didn't they make a it a Triple Threat?
>>
>>2162874
cause Rock vs Austin was Rock vs fucking Austin most likely the biggest feud in wrestling history

WM 17 is still the most bought ppv of all time in North America
>>
>>2162880
No, 23 is

>>2162881
false they only started including none north america buyrates at WM 20

so WM 23 includes North America and Worldwide, WM 17 only includes North American buys
>>
>>2162886
So? 23 has the highest NA buyrate dumbass. I didn't say 28

Fucking retards on this board
>>
>>2162889
WM 23 only did around 100k more buys than WM 17 overall

I think worldwide numbers would be at least 300-400k, i know for a fact WM 23 did great business in the UK cause Trump was so famous
>>
>>2162869
Austin runs overs Raven in a golf cart greatest mania moment ever
>>
>>2162899
Exactly. It would be the GOAT attitude era match.
>>
>>2162886
what the fuck happened at 19 that had an Austin vs Rock match
>>
>>2162944
I'm sure someone previously mentioned recently there was either a technical issue regarding ppv or a dispute with ppv providers in the North American market around the time of WM19.
>>
>>2162944
the ppv was only available to order on digital TV and many people did not have access to that yet

WWE changed it for the next ppv
>>
>>2159052
THIS.
