From the Archives: The 1992 Royal Rumble Match

Many consider this to be the greatest Rumble match of all-time, if not one of WWE's finest historical contests. As the history books inform, the WWF Championship was held up after Hulk Hogan and Undertaker had two matches in November of 1991 where they both cheated their rear ends off to trade the Big Eagle Belt. Jack Tunney decided rather than letting Hogan keep the strap, he would put it up in the Rumble match for '92. The good news was that Ric Flair, WOOO!, won the match. The bad news is that rather than setting up the dream Hogan/Flair SHOWDOWN OF THE IMMORTALS at WrestleMania VIII, well, they thought better to put Sid Vicious across the ring from the Hulkster. Regardless of consequence though, the match is one of the most fun contests ever contested under a Titan Sports banner. Enjoy!
