The Texas Rattlesnake is credited with winning the most Royal Rumble matches in WWE history with three wins. He won this coveted match in 1997, 1997 and 2001.

With the Royal Rumble match being a brutal and exhausting event, it’s a wonder how some people stay in the ring for more than a few minutes without their bodies giving out. But there are some WWE superstars who have managed to stay in the match for a very long time without being eliminated.

But Santino Marella broke that decades-long record in 2009 when he was knocked out almost instantaneously after one second.
