Rey Mysterio holds the record for longest time spent in a single Royal Rumble at 62 minutes and 12 seconds, breaking the record that was previously held by Chris Benoit at 1:01:30 in the 2004 event. A future WWE Hall of Famer, Mysterio was pushed as the "biggest little man" in WWE and had the tendency of accomplishing feats against all odds.

He held numerous titles over the course of his career including the World Heavyweight Championship, WWE Championship and the Intercontinental Championship.

It is at the 2006 Royal Rumble that Rey Mysterio made a name for himself. He was the number two entrant and went on to last 62 minutes to win the match by eliminating Randy Orton and also made history by recording the longest time spent in a single Rumble match.

During the match, he had six eliminations - eliminating Psicosis, Simon Dean, Rob Van Dam, Super Crazy and Triple H. Following the win, Mysterio went to Wrestlemania and participated in a Triple Threat match for the World Heavyweight title against Kurt Angle and Randy Orton.
