7 Things You Should Know About WWE Royal Rumble 1999
3. Chyna Made History As The First Woman In A Rumble Match
Chyna entered the Rumble at #30 after the Corporate Rumble match on Raw. It was a historic moment because she became the first woman in a Rumble match. This was around the time when WWE was just starting to put her in matches. She immediately went after Mark Henry, who had a big crush on her. Chyna was able to stun Henry enough to wear him down and she tossed him over the top to the floor. Following Chyna's elimination of Henry, Austin went from behind eliminated her with a clothesline. She was only in the match for 35 seconds. Even though she might be written out of WWE because she's the ex-girlfriend of Triple H, it's not fair to ignore Chyna's place in WWE history. It was a big deal for her to be in a Rumble match and getting rid of Henry the way she did was really well done.
