Tis the season for the Royal Rumble. No matter how shitty WWE may or may not be from the end of SummerSlam through the NFL regular season, at least at the end of this stretch fans are rewarded with a Royal Rumble. So much hype! Only to be disappointed by the winner year after year!
Pro wrestling fans love misery and high expectations falling flat on their face Flair flop style. Hope springs eternal when it comes to the Royal Rumble but just look at the last five winners of the battle royal. Look at this list in the face and tell yourself WWE doesn’t secretly hate all pro wrestling fans: Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus, John Cena, Batista, and Roman Reigns.
But this year is going to be different! 2016 is the year of the pro wrestling fan (…..?). One thing is certain a Giant sized pro wrestling athlete will not win the 2016 Royal Rumble. Big dudes never (rarely) win the Rumble. Let’s look at the top ten times a Giant Royal Rumble favorite was eliminated in spectacular upset fashion.
