Re: Favourite Royal Rumble ever and Worst?
My favourite Royal Rumble would have to be 1992, Ric Flair put on the most entertaining performance in Royal Rumble history. Also, this thing was absolutely stacked with big-name talent in Flair, Sid Vicious, Hogan, Savage, Piper, Jake Roberts, Shawn Michaels, Ted DiBiase, etc. This Rumble actually told a story, with the title being on the line. The commentary also added a lot to this match, with Heenan marking out for Flair the entire time.
The worst in my eyes was 1999. All it was about was Vince vs. Austin, and that's literally it. Nothing else mattered. Most thought Austin would win including myself to be honest and make it three in a row, and what's sad is that most knew if Austin didn't pull it off, Vince McMahon probably would. It centered around nothing outside of McMahon and Austin, it carried no weight. No one else stood a chance at winning, and we knew it. I love me some Austin vs. McMahon, but this was overkill.
