When it comes to the very best Royal Rumble match in WWF / WWE history, many will say that nothing is better than the 1992 edition of the famous showdown between 30 superstars. With the WWF championship on the line, the top stars of the World Wrestling Federation met in the ring on the 19th of January 1992 in what many consider the true “greatest” Royal Rumble of all time.
After Ric Flair had got involved in Hulk Hogan’s WWF championship matches at Survivor Series 1991 and This Tuesday in Texas, the WWF championship was vacated. WWF President Jack Tunney announced that the winner of the 1992 Royal Rumble would also become the new undisputed WWF Champion, so there was a lot at stake in the rumble match. Along with Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan, the 1992 Royal Rumble was truly star-studded… the match also featured guys like Roddy Piper, Macho Man Randy Savage, Sid Justice, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Kerry Von Erich and loads more. This video looks at the entire Royal Rumble match along with the famous promo afterwards delivered by “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

      My father, my brother and myself brought on paperview and video recorded on VHS along with the next Saturday Nights Main Event and watched from 92 all the way to 2008 when my vcr broke. The greatest rumble ever.

      This is the best Rumble ever. In '92, unlike today, there was very little behind the scene information available. The belt being on the line meant that all of the top stars were in the match and you didn't know which way it was going to go. Flair and Heenan put it over the top. Later years didn't have all the top stars in the match and had the title shot on the line instead. There is more predictability with this approach to the match combined with the behind the scenes rumors and there is no comparison to the '92 match.

    Remember watching this in 92 and not being able to stay seated! Amazing to see Flair finally back up all his pre-rumble trash talk. The magical days of pro wrestling

    A classic LEGITIMATE example of why "The Man" moniker should always be associated with Ric Flair. Yea, there's countless reasons for it, but if this isn't a Top 5 example, then I don't know what is. BTW, this is my favorite Royal Rumble, and Flair's performance is a big reason why (obviously 😉). Great video, you just made me break out my own copy of it to watch again!

    Best and most entertaining Rumble ever!! My 5 memories are: 1) That bell everytime a new wrestler came out 2) Heenan saying "dammit!" when Flair came out at no 3 loool. 3) Hogan clotheslining The Undertaker over the top rope I think it was 4) Randy Savage charging down the aisle to find Jake The Snake Roberts who ending up hiding. Then when Savage eliminated him he still went after him and Taker went after Savage. But Savage still went for Roberts 🤣🤣🤣 5) Sid to Hogan: " It's every man for himself.... BIG BOIIII!" Lmaoooo Such a great Event 💯

    Ted Dibiase comes out number 2 "well he didn't buy a number this year". I always remember on the VHS I got it was a coliseum video exclusive and Ric Flair said in a interview he drew number 3 and being young at the time I didn't understand why Bobby Heenan was upset when he came out at number 3 "OH NO". Until I realised it was an exclusive for the video release.

He's choking the life outta him. 2. Skinner, he'll just spit in your mouth. 3. Where is Perfect!!! 4. Oh No!! Not Piper, of all people. Best Pop of the night. *Note* One guy starts beating his friend in the stands. ☺ 5. Don't turn on him Hick, Don't turn on him Rick!! 6. Flair wins!! What are you nuts?
