So, a little trivia about Sunday so far, after tonight's SDL show.
- 22 Rumble entrants have been named. So far the breakdown is: 1 Taker, 8 Smackdown, 13 Raw. Amusingly enough, that's about an accurate breakdown using the draft's 3v2 logic.
- There are more wrestlers over age 50 in the Rumble (2) than there are wrestlers under age 30 (1).
- The average age of the competitors is 36 years, 6, months, 10 days. This is just 6 days older than Dolph Ziggler.
- Of the 22 wrestlers, there are 2 pairs of wrestlers with the same birthday. And it's kind of amusing who they are: The BEAST, BROOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAAAR, has the same birthday (Dec 27) as the King of Swing, Cesaro... who had a highly talked-about match with Sami Zayn... who has the same birthday as the guy who beat that beast in 1:26, Goldberg (July 12).
- This will be the 30th Royal Rumble, and the 3rd in the Alamodome. The other two? The 10th and the 20th. Book your tickets now for San Antonio for January 2027.
- In both previous Alamodome Rumbles, #30 was the same person: The Undertaker.
- The 2007 Rumble was the first one where the #30 entrant won. It's now happened 3 times in 10 years (Taker - 2007, Cena - 2008, HHH - 2016)
- Even though Taker did not win the 1997 Rumble, he still main-evented Wrestlemania that year. Both in 1997 and 2007, Taker won the title at Wrestlemania (over Sycho Sid in 1997 and over Batista in 2007). Hey, it's 2017!
More facts soon
>>
>>2191622
- 3 times in the last 4 years, TWO competitors in the Rumble lasted over 45 minutes each. 2013 had Jericho and Ziggler, 2014 had Rollins and Punk, and 2016 had Reigns and Jericho. None of those 6 won.
- Jericho and Miz are in their 10th Rumble this year. (R-Truth is tied with them). Undertaker is in his 11th, Big Show will be tied with HBK for 2nd with 12. And Kane... holy crap Kane. If he shows up, this will be Rumble #20 for him. In 21 years. In fact, he's been in every one from 1999-2016.
- Speaking of careers and lengths of time: Barring a significantly long run from Kane or a very quick elimination of Jericho, Y2J will have spent more time in the Rumble than anyone else in history. He is currently 3:38 behind HHH for longest, at 3 hours, 55 minutes, 59 seconds. Kane is currently at 3:38:46.
- And since I'm mentioning long runs in the Rumble, 12 times someone has managed to last over 50 minutes. Only 4 of those times that person won: Vince McMahon (1999, 56:38), Ric Flair (1992, 1:00:02), Chris Benoit (2004, 1:01:31), and Rey Mysterio (2006, 1:02:12). Triple H in 2006 and Bob Backlund in 1993 also each lasted over an hour, but did not win. After McMahon, the next longest time for a winner is Randy Orton with 48:27 in 2009.
- While we hear about spots 1 and 2, as well as 30, the luckiest position is #27. There have been 4 winners from it. There have been 3 winners from #s 30 and 24, and 2 from #s 29, 28, 22, 19, 2, and 1.

- The latest unlucky number is 26. While more than half the winners (17) have been from positions 22-30, no one has ever won from the 26th slot.
- After the first 2 positions, the next 15 are rather unlucky as well. Aside from the first Rumble, which was 20 people and won from the 13th position, the only winners from 3-17 have been: Ric Flair from the 3rd spot in 1992 for the vacant title, Steve Austin in 1997 from position 5 (his elimination wasn't seen and he re-entered), and Randy Orton in 2009 from the 8th position.
Okay, there you have it. A nice ton of information for this weekend. So get ready to start figuring out "Who are the other 8" and wondering who gets positions 1, 2, and 30. Will Luke Harper attack Bray? And what the hell will Kofi do?

You steal these facts from somewhere, or are you just autistic and have a metric shitton of time to spare?
>>
>>2191622
NO one gives a shit you nigger.

Im gonna go ahead and say my man Seff is winning this year in baby face fashion. HHH will comeback at the next PPV and beat Roman for the title cementing a triple threat at Mania which will end with Seth burying both of them and saving the company
>>
Good thread anon, finally something other than the usual fucking recycled cancer

The fact that there's only 1 wrestler under 30 in there is pretty worrying
>>
Autism
Go ahead and kys

Youre fucking kidding right? This board needs more threads like this instead of the usual autistic tripfag circlejerk.

Thank you OP

Wwe is a fake fighting children's tv show that gets record low ratings and record low house show attendance. The best way to """""discuss"""""" wrestling is to treat it like a joke, which it is

Is there any possible suprises entrants confirmed or will it just be filled with NXT ham and eggers?
>>
>>2192112
This unironically

The owner of WWE doesn't even like wrestling and yet you have people on other forums writing essays and getting emotionally invested in a kids TV show, pretty sad
>>
>>2192114
What was a meme about anything I posted? John Cena even said that WWE is for kids and he wouldn't personally watch it
>>
What ruins this board aren't the fucking meme spamming faggots, but the mods who let them be while banning people who participate in actual discussions, but don't attach a wrestling related pic (for instance).
>>
>>2192115
Samoa Joe for sure, Tye Dillinger very likely, not sure if they'll have any other NXT guys.

That leaves 6 spaces free for some possible surprises. Safe bets would be stuff like JBL or Booker, bit of a stretch but possibly Angle or HBK. Omega at 0.000001%
>>
>>2192138
What mods?
>>
>>2191622
Next time you wanna post trivia you should make sure you got your facts right cuz you got a couple of things wrong.
First of all this is actually the 2nd rumble to take place in the Alamodome after 1997. The 2007 rumble was in San Antonio but it was not in the Alamodome.
Second of all Goldberg was never drafted to raw so technically there are only 12 entrants from raw.

I hope Ryback returns
