Trivia

The promotional poster of the 1991 Royal Rumble served as the inspiration for the promotional poster of the 2001 Royal Rumble which featured the top WWE Superstars in a similar format. Ironically, this poster would be released 10 years after the 1991 Royal Rumble. See more »

Bar none, best Rumble ever
7 April 2004 | by (Dallas) – See all my reviews

*SPOILERS*



I gave this one the first 10 I've given for any WWF show. All matches were just great. Keep in mind, the obligatory Koko B. Ware putting over debuting heel (in this case, the Mountie) match is not on the video. I'm sure it was nothing special, besides one of Koko's great dropkicks.

The Rockers-Orient Express opener was just great, lasting nearly 20 minutes. The action never lets up, and there are several very inventive spots. The end is quite original. Amazingly, this was the Rockers' first pay-per-view win ever, from their debut at the '88 Survivor Series.

The Warrior-Slaughter match was at its best at the outset, when the Warrior beat the stuffing out of him and tortured him with the Iraqi flag. Did you know that Slaughter had to wait until 3am to leave the arena?

I think I remember Virgil's turn the most. This feud would not have been as good had it not been for Piper's involvement.

The battle royal was the best ever. That includes Ric Flair's performance the year after. This one didn't depend on just one performance, because it had several, including two Iron Men, Greg Valentine and Rick Martel. Valentine had one elimination, while Martel collected several over the course of the match. Earthquake is an overlooked participant, and the British Bulldog got an immediate push, eliminating Haku, Martel, and I-C champ Mr. Perfect. He would spend the next 19 months in mediocrity. I guess the bookers forgot that Jim Duggan had won a Rumble before and made him mail it in.

Royal Rumbles always tended to lose steam about the 30- or 40-minute mark, but this one never let up on the action. There were still oodles of men in the ring when Tugboat, number 30, came in. That and a great undercard make this the best Rumble in history.
