I don't really mean to flood the board with these, but the inspiration struck me last night to create this thing. Idea is to name all those superstars who managed to main event more than one WWF PPV between 1990 and 1999 (sporcle.com).

Some rules: 1. As in the title, more than one appearance. The quiz already has 32 names, and it would've added 33 names without this qualification.

2. Period covered is Royal Rumble 1990 to Armageddon 1999. (This is done with the idea of covering the next decade in a future quiz, which will show up on here soon enough)

3. Only the last match on the card counts. No joint main events.

4. In case of a Royal Rumble ending the show, the last four wrestlers are credited an appearance.

28/32. Missed four 2-timers (though I actually got one of them - I must have made a typo). Should have got one of the other ones. Would never have thought of the other two.

23/32. Really big swing and a miss on this one for me. My biggest miss was a 10-timer, but mostly because I tried to forget about that guy. AND IT WORKED

Missed 8. Forgot on 10 timer. Just remember guys that were in the video games of their time. WWF WrestleFest, WWF Royal Rumble and WWF Raw on Super Nintendo AND Genesis, and with some luck you'll get a couple 2 timers.

25 right.

Missed one three timer, and six two timers. I came close to getting 3 of the two timers. The three timer I could have gotten in theory, but probably would not have thought to remember him.

Took me way too long to remember the middle 4 timer.

Thanks, really enjoyed this one. 31/32, but there's a good reason for that. Think there's an error...

You have Fully Loaded 99 as Big Show's first appearance - should be Unforgiven 99, no?

Yes, you're spot on. That is an error. It is now fixed. Sorry about the mistake.

On the other hand, does that additional information about the first PPV main event appearance help at all?

It did. It got me to thinking about which wrestlers I knew were active in the era of said events, even when I did not remember who specifically main-evented the events in question.

Toughest for me were a couple of 2-timers from early in the decade.

Not remembering when he was done and thinking he may have been in a SS or RR.

I didn't get the 6 timer (d'oh!) which is really sad.

Edit - only got 23 total.

Your hunch is actually correct, but there was just the one appearance at Survivor Series 1990.

16 out of 32. I suck.

Hercules was in the Royal Rumble final four in 1990?! Really?!

I'm surprised that former WWF Champions Ric Flair and Bob Backlund didn't make this list. Flair only gets credit for the Royal Rumble '91 win, huh? (Of course, he didn't get to main-event WrestleMania, 'cuz God forbid the Big Orange Goblin not main-event).

I got Hogan, but missed Foley.

Yep, Hercules was the 27th man eliminated in the 1990 Royal Rumble. It helped that he had entered 29th. Hercules also made the main event of Survivor Series 1990 as part of Power and Glory with Paul Roma.

Flair only has the 1992 Rumble win. Backlund has the 1993 Rumble appearance where we went over an hour, the long-standing record that Chris Benoit broke. Strangely, Backlund's WWF Title submission match at Survivor Series 1994 was the third match on a card of five, where the main event was Undertaker v Yokozuna in a Casket Match with guest enforcer Chuck Norris.

21 - pathetic (actually 20, but I kept spelling one guy's name wrong and getting rejected, so I'm counting him too). Highest miss was a 4-timer though, I was just really weak on 90-91 and missed the bottom seven names.

I dunno, but Hulk just sounds more serious than Hollywood. I've also noticed he doesn't have that goofy black spray on beard anymore. Perhaps they're going to play them as serious threats. Doubtful, but ya never know.
