Who has the most Eliminations in Royal Rumble History?
Royal Rumble

Royal Rumble is a match etched in the annals of the history of the squared circle. The over-the-top-rope extravaganza is a spectacle worth watching every time. Bodies fly, muscles scream, and strategies shift with every tossed boot and every powerbomb. What could be better than watching the wrestlers throwing off other wrestlers over the rope?


While thirty wrestlers enter the ring, only a few of them get to dominate the space. It is not an easy task to score an elimination and even hard to think of getting five or six eliminations in a single match. Now, imagine someone doing this continuously for years. For some fans, the number of eliminations is a feat bigger than even winning the Royal Rumble match. While that is totally up for discretion, one can not deny that the record for the most Royal Rumble eliminations is not an easy one to have.

Who has the most Royal Rumble eliminations?


Kane has eliminated a total of 46 superstars from the Royal Rumble match, the most by any superstar. He has entered the match a total of 20 times and fell just four short of half a century. An astounding fact is that despite so much success, The Big Red Machine never actually won the battle royal.
