10 best Royal Rumble performances ever
The Royal Rumble is always the most anticipated match of the year, not usually the most exciting match of the year but always the one everyone is most looking forward to.
We have surprise entries from legends and new stars, unexpected eliminations, stare downs and physical action from superstars who wouldn't normally share the same ring and so much more. Something that is surprisingly overlooked every year by fans is the individual performances from the entries. Superstars can often enter very early and survive for the majority of the match while others can provide fantastic moves and eliminations.
Here we have what may be the 10 best performances in Royal Rumble history.
#10 Randy Orton - 2009
Randy Orton won his first of two Royal Rumble matches in 2009. Many fans knew going into the match that Orton was the likely winner, not due to leaked spoilers but because of what happened in the prior episode of RAW. Randy kick-started, literally, a big angle when he punted Vince McMahon in the head, and what better way to make this angle even bigger than for Randy to win the Rumble.
Randy entered the match at the match at number #8 and lasted just over 48 minutes before last eliminating Triple H to take home the victory. Although Randy would eliminate just 3 superstars during his 48 minute + performance, there was barely a moment where he wasn't in on the action and that comes a long way into making it a great performance.
