Masters, a four-time WWE Royal Rumble participant, recently spoke about the unpredictability of WWE Royal Rumble matches on SK Wrestling’s Inside SKoop. He told Dr. Chris Featherstone that the first 20 eliminations are usually disclosed to everyone in the match. However, only a select few know the outcome.
On the latest edition of Inside SKoop, Masters revealed that WWE Royal Rumble matches are not too different to normal WWE matches.
“You have, even in a regular match, so in a Royal Rumble you have your elimination. You’re kind of paying attention to who goes out before you and then the guy who goes out after you will be paying attention to you. Then you do have spots still within that Royal Rumble where a guy either cleans house, like [Great] Khali did, or even if it’s just coming in. One of the top guys, obviously you wanna shine him up and feed him.”
