Remembering The '92 Rumble

I didn't remember the date of the 1992 Royal Rumble. If I had, I would have dedicated yesterday's post to writing about it on its thirtieth anniversary.

WWF Royal Rumble 1992

Actually, it's somewhat fitting that I now get to write about it today. Because - due to the time difference between here and the USA - it fell on January 20th for me.

This match is the greatest Rumble contest there has ever been. Considering it has now been thirty years since it took place, and nothing has topped it, I think it is safe to say that it is unbeatable.

The contestant list was like a who's who of early-90s WWF wrestlers. It had, to pluck out a few names of top stars of the period (and a couple went on to become bigger superstars): Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, Kerry Von Erich, Shawn Michaels and obviously the winner - who became WWF Champion as a result - Ric Flair.

I watched it again last night. I can't recall how many times I have seen it. Just one of the most best booked matches in history.

It's really just a time capsule of the talent that was around at that time. 

1992. Still one of my favourite years in pro wrestling.
