#2 Shawn Michaels (1994) - Eliminated 27th - 4 Eliminations
It took 4 Royal Rumbles but in 1994 Shawn Michaels finally had a Rumble of substance. In his three previous Royal Rumble appearances, Michaels had eliminated only 2 other superstars and had lasted just over 30 minutes over the three Royal Rumbles, including the 1990 Royal Rumble cameo of just 12 seconds.
However, in the 1994 Royal Rumble, Shawn Michaels would come out as the 18th entry to the Royal Rumble and right into his former bodyguard, Diesel, whom he eliminated with the help of the other superstars in the ring. Michaels would also eliminate Mabel, Thurman Plugg and former Rockers tag team partner, Marty Jannetty.
Michaels would last just short of the 30-minute mark and be involved in the final three, with eventual winners Lex Luger and Bret Hart, the former of whom would eliminate Michaels from the Rumble.Published 16 Jan 2019, 10:54 IST
