Event: WWE Royal Rumble 2014
Type: Professional Wrestling
Venue: Consol Energy Center
The Royal Rumble match features a number of wrestlers who enter the ring one by one according to their allotted numbers. Each wrestler enters the ring after a timed interval of either ninety seconds or two minutes. The wrestlers aim at eliminating each other by tossing one over the top rope. The elimination is monitored by referees circling around the ring. Elimination is only counted when both feet of the wrestler touch the floor. The last man standing in the ring is crowned the winner of the match and receives the opportunity to contest the ‘WWE Championship’, ‘World Heavyweight Championship’ or the ‘ECW World Championship’ title at the WrestleMania.
Along with the other three pay-per-views including Summer Slam, Survivor Series and WrestleMania, the Royal Rumble is a part of the WWE’s ‘Classic Four’. The first ever Royal Rumble was held in January of 1988. The event took place in Hamilton’s Copps Coliseum and featured twenty wrestlers including One Man Gang, The Ultimate Warrior, Dino Bravo, Hillbilly Jim, Ron Bass and Bret Hart. The first ever Royal Rumble was won by Jim Duggan, who entered the ring at number thirteen. The event drew a crowd of over eighteen thousand fans and was a financial success. The first Royal Rumble was not showcased as a pay-per-view; instead it aired on the USA Network as a WWF television special.
