7 WWE Superstars who won multiple Royal Rumble matches
Royal Rumble is one of the biggest events of WWE, and it has a considerable significance. The road to WrestleMania starts at Royal Rumble. It is the first PPV of the year, and it is scheduled to be held in Pheonix, Arizona on 27th January 2019.
Royal Rumble has a rich history, and it started in 1988. The most exciting part of the event is the battle royal match which is a traditional 30-man match. The participants enter the ring at a regular interval, and they try to eliminate each other from the ring. The last surviving participant becomes the winner of the match. As a result, the winner gets an opportunity to headline Wrestlemania.
Nevertheless, it was a 40-man Royal Rumble match in 2011. The Greatest Royal Rumble was held in Saudi Arabia last year, and it was a 50-man match. WWE made history last year when the company introduced the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match. The current SmackDown Women's Champion Asuka won the match.
