Top 5 Royal Rumble winners of the Millennium
The road to WrestleMania is about to begin next month at Royal Rumble. Every year, thirty worthy superstars vie to earn the richest prize in WWE, the championship match at WrestleMania.
As a homage to this three-decade-old Holy Grail, we present to you the top five Royal Rumble match winners of this millennium.
#5 The Undertaker (2007)
The Undertaker is undoubtedly the benchmark for all professional wrestlers across the planet. He won the Royal Rumble match from the thirtieth position. Despite being considered as the easiest position in the Rumble match, the position eluded to produce a winner until the “Phenom”.
The last seven minutes of this match featuring the “Deadman” against Shawn Michaels were an absolute classic. Years later, these two featured in the legendary matches at WrestleMania 25 and 26.
The Undertaker challenged and defeated the “Animal”, Batista, for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 23.
