• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (January 22, 1995) – WWF Royal Rumble 1995
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on January 22, 1995, the World Wrestling Federation aired their annual ‘Royal Rumble’ event LIVE on PPV from the Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida.
With only a total match-time of 38 minutes and 41 seconds, this was by far the shortest Royal Rumble match in WWF/E history.
That was only possible because they shortened the intervals, so another wrestler entered every 60 seconds.
Below are the PPV results:
– WWF Intercontinental Championship: Jeff Jarrett def. Razor Ramon (c)
– The Undertaker def. Irwin R. Schyster
– WWF World Heavyweight Championship: Diesel (c) wrestled Bret Hart to a draw
– Vacant WWF Tag Team Championship: 1–2–3 Kid & Bob Holly def. Bam Bam Bigelow and Tatanka
– Shawn Michaels won the 30-man Royal Rumble match
• CM Punk Reveals Who He Wants To See Win The Men’s Royal Rumble 2020 Match
During his appearance on this week’s WWE Backstage on FS1, former WWE wrestler CM Punk was asked who he wants to see win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2020 match.
Below is what Punk said:
“Keith Lee from NXT should win the Royal Rumble. He had a tremendous showing at Survivor Series and, to me is a big fish in a little pond right now. Not to say that NXT is little by any means. I think you need to follow up on things like this.
You strike when the iron is hot. You saw the little moment that he had with Roman Reigns [at Survivor Series]. I think you need to follow up with it here. I think he needs to chuck Brock over the top rope and win that whole thing.”
After hearing Punk’s comments, Keith Lee posted the following on Twitter:
“Hmm….should I ever have the privilege of meeting Mr. Punk, I shall be certain to express my gratitude.
The sentiment is most appreciated.”
