Ok, let me just start by saying that yes, this did suck. But those guys were all so old, it's not really their fault. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has a list of the order in which they were eliminated from the ring. All of the recappers I can find refused to recap it, because of how much it sucked. Maybe someone who has it on tape can tell me the order in which they were eliminated? Please?
According to This Link the order of elimination is:Repo Man, Gobbeldy Gooker, Tugboat, Earthquake, Kimchee, Luke, Duke, Goon, Volkoff, Butch, Doink, Hayes, One Man Gang, Kamala, Brother Love, Cornette, Slaughter, Hillbilly Jim. The Iron Sheik wins, but Sgt Slaughter comes back in and does the Cobra Clutch on the Sheik.

"I thought it was cool how HHH just tossed Jericho out of the ring and made him vanish, possibly into another dimension, at the end of the match." - Dr. Unlikely says the funniest thing I've ever read on Wienerville.
Yea, it wasnt that great, but it was kinda old school like the older Royal Rumbles.. where people wouldnt do crazy bumps over the top, just be tossed out, although Akeem/One Man Gang did a pretty crazy dive over the top.
The Battle Royal was great. I will never forget Brain's statement on Sgt. Slaughter after seeing him shoot a gun on the video screen:
"He's shooting blanks now."
You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling towards you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
Brain: The Repo Man! The other day, he repossessed his own car. This man is nuts!
Gene: About four years ago, he got my mother-in-law's.
Brain: About five years ago, everyone got your mother-in-law.
“You see, this business is filled to the brim with unrealistic motherfuckers. Motherfuckers who thought their ass would age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar, it does. If you mean it gets better with age, it don't.”
Actually, I thought it was a nice little nod to the '11 Rumble, Santino winning in the same way he lost to Del Rio. It's too bad they didn't have more time to give Santino a promo or two to dream his WrestleMania dream.
