Recap
1 July 2002 | by (Vancouver, B.C) – See all my reviews

The 1996 Royal Rumble was historic for a number of reasons.

The man who would go on to win the Rumble -- Shawn Michaels -- was competing in his first match back in the WWE, after collapsing on an episode of RAW in October 1995, during a bout with post-concussion syndrome. Michaels took full advantage of his return, becoming just the second man to win back-to-back Rumble matches. He would go on to capture his first WWE Championship from Bret Hart that March at WrestleMania XII, in the memorable Iron Man Match. The Rumble match also featured the Rumble debuts of a number of superstars who would go on to become big-name players in WWE. Stone Cold Steve Austin -- then known as "Ringmaster" Steve Austin, the Million Dollar Champion -- made his WWE Pay-Per-View debut, as did Vader, a former WCW Champion. Triple H competed in his first Rumble in 1996, entering at No. 1 and lasting nearly an hour.

Ahmed Johnson defeated Jeff Jarrett via disqualification Tag Team Champions the Smoking Gunns defeated the Bodydonnas via pinfall Goldust pinned Razor Ramon for the Intercontinental Championship Undertaker defeated WWE Champion Bret Hart via disqualification Shawn Michaels won the Royal Rumble
