#5 Kane (2003) - Eliminated 28th - 3 Eliminations
The Big Red Machine Kane has had an exceptional history with the Royal Rumble match. Having entered the Rumble in 19 different occasions across three different gimmicks, Isaac Yankem DDS, the Imposter Diesel, and his most famous persona, Kane. Across al of his participation, Kane has the most eliminations across all Royal Rumbles at 44, ahead of Shawn Michaels and the Undertaker who both are on 40.
While Kane never won the Royal Rumble, he came close a few times, famously eliminating a third of the competition in 2001, breaking the record at the time set by Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin. However, in 2003 Kane once again came so close to winning the Royal Rumble, eliminated in the final three by the Undertaker after lasting 20 minutes and 24 seconds.
During the 2003 Royal Rumble, Kane would eliminate Rosey, A-Train, and his tag team partner Rob Van Dam on his way to the final three.
