7 Superstars who have failed to get a single elimination despite lasting over 30 minutes in a Royal Rumble Match
The Royal Rumble is one of the WWE's "big four" pay-per-views, with the winner of the match being guaranteed an opportunity for WWE's top championship at WrestleMania.
This year the men's Royal Rumble match was won by Shinsuke Nakamura, thus setting up a dream match against AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania. The women's Royal Rumble match, which made its debut this year, was won by Asuka.
Many of us are familiar with Royal Rumble stats or records like Roman Reigns holds the record for the most eliminations in a single Royal Rumble match with 12 eliminations, and the record for the most number of eliminations in Royal Rumble history is held by Kane with 44 eliminations and many more.
Here we look at 7 WWE Superstars who failed to score a single elimination despite lasting over 30 minutes in a Royal Rumble Match.
#7 Rusev (30 minutes 28 seconds)
Rusev is currently the most over superstar in the entire WWE main roster, with "Rusev Day" chants being heard in almost every episode of SmackDown Live by the WWE Universe. He also currently leads the WWE merchandise sales.
Rusev has so far entered in 5 royal rumbles and has scored 6 eliminations, with all those eliminations coming in Royal Rumble 2015.
In the 2018 Royal Rumble match, Rusev was the first entrant and lasted a good duration of 30 minutes and 28 seconds but could not score a single elimination, before being eliminated by an unlikely alliance of Bray Wyatt and Woken Matt Hardy.
