Sports Throwback Thursday: 1990 & 1992 Royal Rumble

In this week’s Sports Throwback Thursday, I’m going to highlight my favorite moments of the 1990 and 1992 Royal Rumble pay-per-view event.

1990 Royal Rumble

During this time, I liked the Ultimate Warrior in the company. He was at the peak of his career during the 1990 Royal Rumble. His looks, promos, and in-ring work were outstanding. He was so hot at the time. My favorite moment in the 1990 Royal Rumble is when Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan clash. Everyone in the arena got up on their feet because they knew the fight was on. Warrior vs. Hogan is one of the best rivalries in WWE history. Hogan would win the Royal Rumble match by eliminating Mr. Perfect. Hogan was also the WWF champion at the time.

1992 Royal Rumble

Thanks to Peacock, the 1992 Royal Rumble is one of the most fantastic Royal Rumble events I’ve ever seen. I won’t mind if people think it’s the greatest Royal Rumble pay-per-view ever. It’s undoubtedly one of my favorites. Ric Flair was the star of this pay-per-view event. Having Flair enter the ring as No. 3 instead of No. 1 was the right call. Flair spent almost an hour during the Royal Rumble match and still managed to give great promos is astonishing. We saw the excellent characteristics of Ric Flair in one night. I’m glad he won this Royal Rumble.

“WITH A TEAR IN MY EYE, THIS IS THE GREATEST MOMENT IN MY LIFE.” An unforgettable line from the Nature Boy.
