About All Rumble Stats


All Rumble Stats is the brainchild of me – Rhys Wynne – a freelance web developer who lives in North West England. I’ve been a wrestling fan since the early 90’s, getting into it through another love – video games. I played WWF Wrestlefest in the arcades, and that game had a (12 man) Royal Rumble mode. After getting the usual merchandise during Christmas 1992 (which contained Summerslam 92 on VHS, a wrestling ring and figures), I became hooked, and I loved the Royal Rumble most of all. I think the first Royal Rumble I remember watching was either the 1993 or the 1990 Royal Rumble, that were videos at my local blockbuster videos.

Stupidly, in my early 20’s, I started recording the stats every year into a spreadsheet which detailed the competitors and their entry number, and who they were eliminated by. I was a cool kid. As my career and my web development skills got better I thought always about this spreadsheet and turning it into a website. Especially as some of the formulas I run spotted some odd things (it was when I noticed Vladimir Kozlov had a lot of eliminations in a small amount of time), and my weird brain found it interesting. I wanted to share it with the world.

So this is the result of a couple of months (on and off) work. I hope you like it!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do the times work?

So, the times are calculated from when either one of three things occur: they enter the ring, attack a legal competitor, or are attacked by a legal competitor. This seems to be how WWE records it, although there are a lot of inconsistencies. It is taken from the timestamp of the WWE Network.

There are some competitors who enter the ring off screen, so often these are best guesses in terms. I’ve tried to highlight those entries.

Why do you have a few eliminations incorrect?

As you can imagine, WWE can be a bit inconsistent when it comes to eliminations, so I’ve tried to interpret them maybe slightly differently. Often these occur when somebody throws out somebody who is throwing somebody else. WWE tends to only give the elimination to one person, which I don’t think is fair!
