Trivia

During his stay with the WWF, Razor Ramon has competed at the Royal Rumble only in championship matches consecutively from 1993-1996. He faced Bret Hart for the WWF Championship in 1993 and from 1994-1996 he competed in matches for the WWF Intercontinental Championship or defending it. "Razor Ramon" did compete in the 1997 Rumble, however by that point he was being portrayed by Rick Bogner, not Scott Hall, who originated the character. See more »

Goofs

Commentator Jim Ross stated that Jake Roberts was appearing in his 6th Rumble match, more than any other WWF superstar. In fact, Rick Martel had already competed in 7 Rumble matches by this point (1989-1995). See more »

Very Exciting Action
5 June 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

The 1997 Royal Rumble was like all other Royal Rumble events-brilliant and exciting mainly because of the 30 man Rumble which is everyone's favourite part of the show.

The undercard matches were brilliant-Vader batted the Undertaker in a great match and I was pleasantly surprised by the Goldust/Triple H match and the scrap between Ahmed Johnson and Farooq.

The 30 man Rumble itself was exciting with plenty of action; the only thing that spoiled it was the controversial ending.

Shawn Michaels and Sid had a great match for the WWF Title; Shawn was wrestling in his hometown of Texas and he put on a great show with Sid.

Fantastic stuff!
