It’s time to Rumble, it’s time for the ROYAL RUMBLE

It’s one can’t miss event of the year for both wrestling fans and used to be wrestling fans. It’s the Royal Rumble, where 30 men try to throw each other over the top rope for a main event slot at WrestleMania. The Rumble has been running since 1988, when “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan became the inaugural winner. Since then, the event has been come a staple for the WWE. Even though they don’t do it as much now, I get most nostalgic about the Royal Rumble when thinking about the classic intros where they show all 30 competitors. Remember the SNES version…

The Rumble has had many great moments, from Ric Flair 1992 win, Rey Mysterio winning for the late great Eddie Guerrero, to Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior squaring off for the first time. Every year, the WWE puts out a great video package called “by the numbers” that always gets me hyped. The Royal Rumble is on Sunday, January 25th.
