On this day in Pro Wrestling history on January 19, 1992, the World Wrestling Federation aired their annual ‘Royal Rumble’ event LIVE on PPV from the Knickerbocker Arena in Albany, New York.
This is widely considered both, the single greatest Royal Rumble PPV and the single greatest Royal Rumble match of all time.
Also quite possibly “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair’s finest hour …
Here are the results:
• The New Foundation def. The Orient Express
• WWF Intercontinental Championship
Roddy Piper def. The Mountie (c)
• The Beverly Brothers def. The Bushwhackers
• WWF Tag Team Championship
The Natural Disasters def. The Legion of Doom (c) via countout
• Ric Flair won the Royal Rumble match and the vacant WWF World Heavyweight Championship
