#3 Shawn Michaels (2010) - Eliminated 27th - 6 Eliminations
It is fitting that Michaels' last appearance in a Royal Rumble match, he would come out in the number 18 position. While the crowd was unaware that Michaels was participating in his last Royal Rumble, Michaels would later retire after that year's WrestleMania in a loss to The Undertaker in the famous Career vs Streak match.
In the 2010 Royal Rumble match, Michaels would come out and perform a streak of eliminations, Carlito, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, John Morrison, Drew McIntyre, and his former partner in D-X, Triple H. Michaels would make it all the way until the final 4 with John Cena, Batista and the eventual winner Edge.
Michaels would later be eliminated by Batista after a solid 25 minutes and 45 seconds in the Royal Rumble. Michaels, with 6, would have the most eliminations in the Royal Rumble, leaving his final Royal Rumble elimination tally on 40 for the duration of his career.Published 16 Jan 2019, 10:54 IST
