Since I have no life, here is a list that I made in order to determine the best competitors at the WWF Royal Rumble. My formula is as follows; each wrestler's average entrance number (1-30) is rated inversely to his finish (1-30). Ergo, if a guy gets number 30, he's expected to win to balance out. If he finishes second, then he loses one point. Conversely, if the guy draws number 4, for example, but finishes, say, 25th, then he gains two points. Here is the numbering system so you can keep track yourself and also maybe call me on a few errors.

1--30 2--29 3--28 4--27 5--26 6--25 7-24 8--23 9--22 10--21
11--20 12--19 13--18 14--17 15--16 16--15 17--14 18--13 19--12 20--11
21--10 22--9 23--8 24--7 25--6 26--5 27--4 28--3 29--2 30--1

A few more notes...The "role" of Doink the Clown was played by two different wrestlers in the two Rumbles that the character competed in. Since I'm not sure who played Doink, I'm just ranking him under character.
* Jim Duggan won the 20-man, non-pay-per-view Royal Rumble in 1988. Since the 20-man format totally throws off my ranking system, I've decided to disregard it.
* Mick Foley competed in the 1998 Royal Rumble under three different personas (Dude Love, Mankind and Cactus Jack)

Dude, I've read shorter novels than that. Beyond that, I don't have a whole lot to say. I don't know about that point logic though, espcially considering such things as no one that's drawn 30 has ever won. Besides, I have to argue against any point system with Vince McMahon being placed as high as he is.



No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.

1. McMahon
2. Flair
3. Rock
4. Austin
5. Bulldog
6. D-lo

Something has to be wrong with that logic. Maybe the formula should be (Average Elimination #) - (Average Entry #). I would say that the winner should (for that Rumble) score a 35 for elimination number (or 25 in the case of the '88 Rumble) since actually winning is what is important. This is actually quite similar to the proposed system, but I think it is a little more straight forward. Let me evaluate a couple of people with this formula:

Andre the Giant (2)
3, 11 (7)
9, 5 (7)
0

Kurt Angle (1)
26 (avg)
29 (avg)
+3

Steve Austin/Ringmaster (6)
1, 5, 19, 24, 24, 27 (16.66)
30 [35], 30 [35], 30 [35], 29, 27, 23 (30.66)
+14

British Bulldog (6)
1, 2, 8, 11, 14, 29 (10.83)
29, 27, 27, 13, 8, 7 (18.5)
+7.66

D-Lo Brown (3)
1, 11, 28 (13.33)
27, 17, 3 (15.66)
+2.33

Diesel (2)
7, 22 (14.5)
29, 14 (21.5)
+7

Mick Foley (4)
1, 16, 26, 28 (17.75)
27, 25, 8, 3 (15.75)
-2

Ric Flair (2)
1,3 (2)
35, 4 (19.5)
+17.5


Bret "Hitman" Hart (4)
1, 8, 21, 27 (14.25)
35, 29, 10, 5 (19.75)
+5.5

Hunter Hearst Helmsley (4)
1, 12, 22, 23 (14.5)
35, 25, 18, 11 (22.25)
+7.75

Hulk Hogan (4)
18, 24, 25, 26 (20.75)
35, 35, 28, 21 (29.75)
+9

Chris Jericho (1)
15 (avg)
10 (avg)
-5

Kane/"Diesel"/Issac Yankem (6)
6, 18, 23, 27, 28, 28 (21.66)
29, 28, 27, 25, 24, 16 (24.83)
+3.16

Vince McMahon (1)
2 (avg)
35 (avg)
+28

Shawn Michaels (6)
1, 6, 9, 18, 18, 26 (13)
35, 35, 28, 23, 9, 9 (23.16)
+10.16

Mr. Perfect (5)
4, 10, 23, 25, 30 (18.4)
29, 28, 23, 10, 7 (19.4)
+1

The Rock (4)
4, 13, 24, 25 (16.5)
35, 29, 28, 23 (28.75)
+12.25

Yokozuna (2)
9, 27 (18)
35, 12 (23.5)
+5.5

This still puts McMahon on top, but every system will. He competed in one rumble, entered second and won. That's a damn good average. Another way to make the ystem more representative of how well someone does might be to add a point to the final total for each Rumble in which he participated.

Numbers are stupid.

Maybe if there were an asterisk next to McMahon noting that the Rumble he won was done largely because he spent so much time OUT of the ring.

But then I suppose if you threw in asterisks in the "record books" of professional wrestling for every technicality, IBM would have to invent a new machine to store it on because no computer today could handle it.

PS - Big Bad, I agree with you 100 percent. You have no life. But neither do I, and I would NEVER get the energy up to compile such stats. Nice job.

I was really hoping that the McMahon/Flair match would be for number #30 in the Rumble or something. That way, Vince could have cheaply won, gone into the Rumble and gotten knocked out immediately to finish 5th or 6th and bring down his average.

Man, I love stats and that sort of thing, but that was too long even for my taste, I only got about as far as Bob Backlund. Nice work by you though. I wish I worked as hard in school as you did on this info. Maybe I could've gotten my gpa up to 2.

Yeah, but there's a lesson to be learned here... All this hard work, and it led to the conclusion that Vince McMahon is the leading points scorer.

Hard work does not pay off, kids.
