10 Reasons The 1990 Royal Rumble Is The Best Of All Time

Rumbles don't get any better than this masterpiece.

The general consensus is that the 1992 Royal Rumble is the best of its kind.

It is easy to see why; there is so much to love about Ric Flair’s greatest night in the WWF. 'The Nature Boy' put in the greatest single performance in Rumble history, backed up an incredible showing from Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan on commentary. The field was stacked, the stakes were high, and the action was constant. What more could you want?

With that in mind, I’m here to tell you that the 1992 Royal Rumble isn’t the best in the three decades of the event. That accolade deserves to be given to the 30-man extravaganza that took place two years earlier, where nothing was on the line and Hulk Hogan eventually prevailed.

The 1990 Royal Rumble is the best in the history of the match. If you don’t believe me, I suggest you log on to the WWE Network (£/$9.99 a month!) and re-watch this genuine classic of a match, that may well deserve the accolade of ‘best battle royal of all time’.

The 1990 Royal Rumble is the best - and this is why...


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read.
