Can someone please eliminate this guy? The Royal Rumble is one of the most iconic WWE matches of the year. Various companies have tried their own version and while some are good, almost none of them are as fun as the Royal Rumble itself. One of the reasons is how simple an idea it is: you throw someone over the top and if both of their feet touch the floor, they’re eliminated. One wrestler has found several ways around this though.
I still don’t believe some of these. Check out this crazy collection of elimination saves:
WWE has posted a new video looking at Kofi Kingston’s Greatest Royal Rumble Saves. Over the years, Kingston has made a tradition out of making the most ridiculous saves to keep himself in the Royal Rumble match. These include help from people, using a chair as a pogo stick and walking on his own hands, among other things. The idea first started back in 2012 and has become an annual tradition.
Opinion: I look forward to these every year and for the life of me I don’t know how he pulls these things off. I’m assuming they just come to him when he’s sitting around playing video games or something, because these aren’t the kinds of things that a normal person is going to put together. These are incredibly creative and it’s fun wondering what Kingston is going to pull off next. Hopefully this year’s is even better.
