5 Best No. 13 Entries in the Royal Rumble
# 3 Michael McGillicutty (2011) - Eliminated 20th - 4 Eliminations
The first half of the 2011 40-man Royal Rumble was dominated by the New Nexus stable, led by their leader CM Punk who came out first. The New Nexus banded together during the Royal Rumble, doing their best to protect CM Punk and at the same time eliminating other entrants from the Rumble.
McGillicutty would come to the ring as the 13th entrant and help out both CM Punk, who was the first entrant, and fellow New Nexus member Husky Harris.
McGillicutty would go on to eliminate JTG, Ted DiBiase, John Morrison and Mark Henry during his 15 minutes in the Royal Rumble before being eliminated by New Nexus' foe John Cena.
McGillicutty would not be seen at the Rumble for another 4 years when he returned under the new gimmick of Curtis Axel and would not participate in a Royal Rumble match for 5 years as he was attacked by Erick Rowan before getting to the ring in 2015.Published 11 Jan 2019, 06:15 IST
