Shawn Michaels made history by being the first WWE superstar to enter at #1 and actually win despite 1995 being the shortest Royal Rumble at 38:41 as superstars entered every 60 seconds and the WWE roster at the time being very lackluster regardless Michaels was the first man in and the last man standing.

The Benoit tragedy aside 2004 marked only the second time in WWE history that another superstar would start at the number 1 position and go coast to coast with every other superstar and won though WWE refuses to acknowledge this rumble ever happening long story short Benoit was forced to start at #1 by Paul Heyman in another attempt to keep him out of the WWE title picture regardless Benoit survived the odds and eliminating Big Show and breaking Ric Flair's record of longest time spent in a rumble match at 1:01:35

A very odd Royal Rumble as the rumble was centered around Austin and McMahan who both spent most of the rumble on the outside at one point had been taken out and taken to the hospital before returning to the arena in a ambulance as The Ministry of Darkness were putting Mabel in a hearse as Austin returned to the ring raking up a total of 8 eliminations one of them being Chyna the first ever woman to compete in a Royal Rumble match as Austin threw out Big Boss Man leaving only Austin and McMahan as the final two and would have eliminated McMahan if it weren't for the interference of The Rock who won the WWE Championship from Mankind earlier who distracted Austin leading to McMahan to eliminate him and win the royal rumble.

The year prior Taker entered at #30 and won the rumble and in 2008 Taker would end up starting the rumble at #1 and even more odd the #2 entrant was Shawn Michaels the same guy who Taker eliminated to win the 2007 rumble and coincidentally it was Michaels who eliminates Taker in this rumble.
