STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN has earned a record three Royal Rumble victories, with the Texas Rattlesnake triumphing in 1997, 1998 and 2001
STEVE AUSTIN is also one of only three men, alongside HULK HOGAN and SHAWN MICHAELS, to win back-to-back Rumbles, although John Cena and Batista have also won the event twice
The first Royal Rumble, however, was won by "HACKSAW" JIM DUGGAN, who lastly eliminated One Man Gang to triumph in 1988
Masked marvel REY MYSTERIO has spent the longest time in the ring during a single Royal Rumble, surviving a whopping 1hr, 2mins, and 12secs to win the 2006 event
TRIPLE H, though, has amassed the longest combined time in the Royal Rumble match, racking up 3hrs, 51mins and 32 seconds over the course of his eight appearances
The Cobra-wielding SANTINO MARELLA has spent the shortest time in a single Rumble, lasting just 1.9 seconds before being sent packing by Kane in 2009
ROMAN REIGNS has eliminated the most Superstars in one Rumble, expelling 12 grapplers in the 2014 event to beat Kane's record of 11 from 2001
But KANE has removed the most wrestlers in total, propelling 43 victims over the top rope during his 18 Rumble appearances, with Shawn Michaels (39), Stone Cold (36) and The Undertaker (35) the next best
KANE'S tally of 18 Rumbles is a record and The Devil's Favourite Demon also competed in the most consecutive Rumbles (13 between 1999-2011)
The 2002 ROYAL RUMBLE - won by Triple H - was the longest in history (1hr, 9mins, 23secs), while the 1988 ROYAL RUMBLE, which had just 20 entrants, was the shortest (33mins)
The NUMBER 27 has yielded the most Royal Rumble winners, with Big John Studd, Yokozuna, Bret Hart and Steve Austin triumphing from that entry position
CHYNA, BETH PHOENIX and KHARMA are the only Divas to appear in the Royal Rumble match - but each lady has eliminated at least one of their male counterparts
