Did You Know?

During the show, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was seen as a marked man with The Godwinns, Nation of Domination and Los Boricuas all trying to get him. Before the Royal Rumble match, it looked like Los Boricuas had attacked Austin with nobody entering at #22 but it turned out they attacked Skull (who was supposed to come out at that spot).See more »
Jerry Lawler:Just look at the idiots that are in this ring right now. Chainsaw, Mosh, Cactus Jack. I feel like calling "Unsolved Mysteries" and saying "Hey, I found everybody."See more »

Author: MisterWhiplash from United States

Royal Rumble is a great event in the WWF, and in 1998 it was better than ever. This time, Stone Cold Steve Austin defied the odds and won the coveted Royal Rumble to face Shawn Michaels in his final match 2 months later. Mike Tyson also makes a funny cameo as himself (which leads up to him at Wrestlemania XIV). Entertaining and satisfying, with the Rock as Rocky Maivia. A+
