Most Eliminations in each Men’s Royal Rumble

Often the impact players of the Royal Rumble matches, the individuals with the most eliminations often change the match completely. There are two types of these individuals – those who start the match and eliminate competitors one by one (as per Brock Lesnar in 2020), or those who come in towards the end and clean house (such as The Great Khali in 2007 famously did). Notable performers include Kane’s 11 in 2001, the only rumble where he had the most eliminations, but who holds the record for the most total eliminations. Roman Reigns has also eliminated 12 in 2014, and Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman share the record for the most eliminations in a single Royal Rumble with 13, albeit the latter competed in a 50 man Royal Rumble. The honour has been shared multiple times, with 3 men: Big E, Damien Priest, Seth Rollins sharing the honour between them in 2021.
