Build your Ultimate Royal Rumble

If you're a bit of a list-maker like me you might enjoy this task...

Make your own 30 man Royal Rumble, using only previous entrants and the number they had in a particular year.

i.e. you might have Shawn Michaels (1995) as your number 1, Vince McMahon (1999) as number 2, AJ Styles (2016) as number 3, etc.

You can't repeat a number or an individual, and you can only have one winning entry. So you can't have AJ Styles (2016) and Ric Flair (1992) because they were both number 3, you can't have Roman Reigns (2014) and Roman Reigns (2015), and you can't have Rey Mysterio (2006) and Stone Cold (1997).

You might find this fun. I did, but then I'm tedious.

 

Here's my Ultimate Rumble:

1 - Cactus Jack (1998)

2 - British Bulldog (1995) - he should have won!

3 - Ric Flair (1992) - picking any other winner wouldn't be fair to Flair.

4 - The Rock (1998)

5 - Rikishi (2000) - rewatched this the other night and he's a highlight

6 - Kane (2001) - obvious

7 - John Morrison (2011) - for the escape spot

8 - The Barbarian (1992)

9 - Owen Hart (1998)

10 - 1-2-3 Kid (1996)

11 - Maven (2002) - still not eliminated

12 - Honky Tonk Man (2001) - best thing he ever did?

13 - Matt Hardy (2003)

14 - DDP (2015)

15 - Roddy Piper (1992)

16 - Neville (2016)

17 - Shelton Benjamin (2004)

18 - Shawn Michaels (2010) - if you only pick one Shawn Rumble, it's this one

19 - Ken Shamrock (1999)

20 - Sami Zayn (2016)

21 - Bret Hart (1997)

22 - Jerry Lawler (1997)

23 - Akeem (1989)

24 - Paul London (2005) - have Akeem do the Snitsky spot

25 - Mr Perfect (2002)

26 - Kofi Kingston (2011)

27 - Rey Mysterio (2018)

28 - Batista (2003)

29 - Haku (2001)

30 - Goldberg (2004) - Rey's taking the Nunzio spear.

 

I'd watch that match!

Apart from that whole "greatest Intercontinental champion of all time" and putting Warrior on the map deal, sure.

Your next test, then, is to try and do it with only one winning entry in there - you've got 9 winners in that list. That's the part I struggled with - so often the winner has the most memorable match compared to everyone else, so picking just one is tricky!

Oh balls! i read the plan twice too and still somehow overlooked the only one winner bit.... :( gone back and done it though as it was bugging me! such a clever idea for a challenge!

 

also, what about doing a 30 man rumble with only ONE man from each year and that entrants number only

Just in time for the Rumble! 

1. Shawn Michaels ('95 Winner) - I love a 'Going The Distance'  winner.
2. Daniel Bryan ('11) - 90's HBK vs DB? Fuck yes.
3. AJ Styles ('16) - My fave surprise Rumble entrant ever. Also, great triple threat!
4. Mr Perfect ('89) - Oh yes! Dreamy fatal four way! 
5. Jerry Lawler ('96) - So he can do the lovable 'crawl under the ring & hide' trope.
6. Gillberg ('99) 
7. Sabu ('07) - For his crunchy chokeslam exit from the Rumble.
8.  Batista ('08)
9. Genichiro Tenryu ('93)
10. 1-2-3 Kid ('96)
11. Grand Master Sexay ('01) - For the big ol' dance spot.
12. Scotty Too Hotty ('02) - See above. 
13. Big Bossman ('92) - Workrate Bossman will never let you down.
14. Jeff Hardy ('07)
15. Randy Savage ('89)
16. The Undertaker ('09) - The best version of 'Taker
17. Owen Hart ('96)
18. Ernest Miller ('04) - For the underrated bit where his manager's wig falls off.
19. Kurt Angle ('04)
20. Ahmed Johnson ('98)
21. Bret Hart ('97) - Best version of Hart. I actually kinda like him here.
22. John Cena ('11)
23. The Hurricane ('02) - So he can attempt the (failed) double chokeslam again.
24. Paul London ('05) - His exit from the 2005 Rumble is brilliant.
25. Rob Van Dam ('09)
26. Chris Masters ('06) - Give the man his due! Should've been a top dog.
27. Kofi Kingston ('10) - Whats a Rumble without some Kofi hi-jinks?
28. Rick Rude ('90)
29. Sid Justice ('92)
30. Goldberg ('04)
