The most chaotic event of the year!

Onward we march, as we venture closer and closer to the Greatest Royal Rumble event hosted by Saudi Arabia. Regarded as one of the most important wrestling events of the year, it’s clear why the Royal Rumble has so much hype behind it.

Since its inception, the general wrestling audience has witnessed several great moments. Each of these moments helped the actual Royal Rumble match feel much more important.

In honour of this prestigious wrestling event, I would like to list my top five moments in the Royal Rumble match.

#5 Chyna enters the Rumble, 1999

Chyna taking down Mark Henry

Even though Chyna's story was something of a wrestling tragedy in the later days of her life, in the late 90's, she was one of the hottest stars in the pro wrestling business. With her strong features and muscular form, she was not shy about mixing it up with her male counterparts.

It was because of these factors that Chyna became the first female Royal Rumble participant in 1999. Even though she only lasted all of 35 seconds, she had a Mark Henry elimination to boast of.

This wasn’t the only year she competed, either, as she took part in the 2000 Royal Rumble the year after. She had similar success, with only one elimination (Chris Jericho) during her 37-second stint.

Nonetheless, Chyna’s involvement showed that the Royal Rumble was not a gender-specific match.
