So with the upcoming Royal Rumble coming our way in a weeks time I thought it would be fun to rate each and every Rumble match from 1988 up to 2014.

You must simply give out one 11 & three 10's. Hopefully you'll have seen all of the Rumble matches if you're that much of a dedicated WWE Fan wink.gif

Here's the respectable years & template!

00 1988
00 1989
00 1990
00 1991
00 1992
00 1993
00 1994
00 1995
00 1996
00 1997
00 1998
00 1999
00 2000
00 2001
00 2002
00 2003
00 2004
00 2005
00 2006
00 2007
00 2008
00 2009
00 2010
00 2011
00 2012
00 2013
00 2014

each 11, 10, or 00 for example will be totalled up going by how popular they are rated by other members based on how brilliant or meh or just good they were and I'll reveal the results during Rumble week. Have Fun! biggrin.gif

I don't think I'm gonna be able to do this. I've only seen the 2011, 2013 & 2014 Royal Rumble matches in full. I would have watched the 2012 rumble match but I didn't have internet connection over the weekend that it took place drama.gif and for all the pre-2011 rumble matches I didn't know about any streams that I could watch it on.

2000 is my favourite rumble! Not only because of the rumble match itself, but the whole PPV was that damn good! In particular Triple H vs. Cactus Jack; Street Fight! (One of my all time favourite matches!)

And of course we also had Hardyz vs. Dudleyz; Tables Match, with THAT spot from above the entrance by Jeff! *.*

What I don't understand is they know how well that Royal Rumble did with such a great card, why haven't they tried to match it since?

Great idea, gonna have to rewatch a few, are we good to leave a few out, not seen any pre-1998, 2001 easily getting my 11 for Kane heart.gif

Yeah if you don't have time to watch any of the earlier ones or anything which is absolutely fine then just put xx. It might mean the old ones will probably fall out straight away when I'm revealing the results but I understand if everyone doesn't have the time to go through all or whatever laugh.gif

Agreed that the 2000 Royal Rumble was the best (although the less said about the swimsuit competition the better). Rey Mysterio starting from first winning the 2006 Rumble was pretty iconic as well.

I will be editing this but I want to get my votes in before I forget!

03.0 1988 >> Pretty bland and uneventful, considering it's the first ever rumble! <<
07.0 1989
09.0 1990 >> The crowd were on FIRE for this one. The first ten superstars were amongst the most iconic performers of all time! I really enjoyed it! <<
06.5 1991
08.0 1992
04.5 1993
06.5 1994 >> DAT ENDING THO... <<
06.0 1995
07.0 1996
05.0 1997 >> I don't like it when one man practically dominates and keeps eliminating people so he's in the ring on his own. It's boring. But it was a very good finale! <<
07.5 1998
01.0 1999 >> Barring McMahon/Austin, this was proper poop and had nothing else going for it, at all. <<
11.0 2000
10.0 2001
06.5 2002 >> Lita saves everything tbh. This was ok, up until the cameras started focussing on everything but the in-ring action/stupidly long entrances! <<
06.0 2003
07.5 2004
08.0 2005 >> Loved the beatdown on Hassan! <<
06.0 2006
08.5 2007
09.0 2008 >> Madison Square Garden, ALWAYS delivers! <<
07.0 2009
07.0 2010
07.5 2011
06.0 2012
07.0 2013
06.5 2014 >> The result/no DB ruined EVERYTHING. <<

Argh, I don't know how anyone can give 1989 a 5!

I'd have to do this from memory as most (especially in the past 15 years) of them all roll into one in my mind.

6 1988 - I agree, it was more of a prototype at this point, not enough people in it and not enough talent.
10 1989 - The first proper one - I loved it from the moment Demolition drew 1 and 2 until the point John Studd redeemed himself for a career as a huge heel.
8 1990 - A bit of a step backwards - although it is memorable for the point that Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior started trading punches.
10 1991 - the first one I ever saw, the first wrestling PPV I ever saw in fact. As a result it holds really good memories for me, even if it wasn't the greatest ever line-up or ending.
11 1992 - hands down the greatest Rumble ever - Ric Flair entering at number 3 and staying until the end to win the title. The moment where he clears the ring only to meet Roddy Piper is legendary.
6 1994 - I had this on VHS for some reason, but definitely not a classic with a pretty stupid ending.
10 2000 - this was a good one, shown on channel 4 if I recall, so the first I saw in a long time.

I really can't remember which was which of the others. However, I'll happily give a higher rating to any where it wasn't basically wrestlers 1 and 2 the whole way through with nearly everyone else getting knocked out after about 30 seconds. Those Rumbles are awful...that one where Nexus kept on chucking everyone out was the worst. At least Stone Cold did that in a fairly entertaining way.

02 1999 ohmy.gif this was so bad! It felt like it dragged too
10 2000
11 2001
09 2002
07 2003
03 2011 - Re-watched this last night, for a 40 man Rumble they could have had so many more surprises.
05 2012
06 2013
05 2014

Need to re-watch the others, can't remember a thing!

Sorry Richie I didn't really enjoy the earlier rumbles much might have to re watch that one to see if it can improve on me though. The 1992 was the best of that century hands down.

Heh, very much of their time as a lot of the "old skool" stuff is. I usually watch the rumble every year but recently haven't got that much out of them due to not knowing who anyone is. Looking forward to next weekend's (if I can find a D/L of it) as I'm actively following WWE again at the moment.

I saw that one for the first time last night and thoroughly enjoyed it! I only marked it a "7" though due to wishing I was invested in characters more. I'm sure had I been born and followed it back then, Big John Studd and a couple of others would have got me rooting for them! Hulk Hogan can FO though. Ugh I've NEVER got the appeal with him, ever. LOVE Jake The Snake running back to the ring with Damien to scare Andre The Giant off/eliminate himself! That feud I wish I knew more about too. (But Jake was one I always liked as a kid, growing up. Well him and 'taker!)

Studd had always been a huge heel in WWF but had been out of the federation for about three years. He came back in late 1988 as a fan favourite and feuded against Bobby Heenan his former manager who by then was managing Andre the Giant his former enemy. I think they had a lot of hope for Studd as a face but he had his problems and he left again not longer after Wrestlemania V I think where he was a referee rather than actually wrestling.

Ok I'll put in my to do list for the week to re watch that rumble then. Tbh I'm fairly sure I enjoyed it more so I may knock my points up once I've seen it again.

It will be quite hard to rate most of these as I've only seen 3 rumble matches in full and they were at the time of when it took place. For the others already knowing the winner and the power of hindsight could affect my rating but for the 2000 rumble match I will give that at least a 10 because I know I would have loved watching that Live and The Rock was my favourite wrestler then so him winning would have made me enjoy even more.

I still need to watch many more rumble matches before I can give my final ratings so I will edit this as I go along.

00 1988
00 1989
00 1990
00 1991
00 1992
00 1993
00 1994
01 1995 (Not a good idea to have the first two guys as the last two as well)
00 1996
00 1997
00 1998
02 1999
10 2000 (A fun rumble match during the best period of WWF/E wrestling and the perfect winner)
11 2001 (This was a really fun match which was also at a good pace and didn't have too many rest spots)
06 2002
03 2003
00 2004
00 2005
00 2006
05 2007
00 2008
00 2009
04 2010 (Shawn Michaels was the only good thing about this match)
06 2011
00 2012
05 2013
05 2014
