WWE Royal Rumble: how many times did the Undertaker win it?

At Survivor Series 1990, The Undertaker made his legendary WWE debut. Thirty years later, at Survivor Series 2020, he retired. With seven World Championships and numerous WrestleMania headliners, the Hall of Famer will forever be remembered as the Deadman of the WWE Universe.

The Royal Rumble has always been a tough event for The Deadman. He managed to win it only once, but he turned that victory into a World Championship win at WrestleMania 23 and created history in WWE.

How many times did the Undertaker win the Royal Rumble?

In 2003, The Undertaker was a runner-up in the Rumble, but he faced some embarrassing moments during the event. Despite being eliminated in some surprising ways, The Undertaker’s career has not been adversely affected. He holds the second-highest number of Rumble eliminations in WWE history, with 44, second only to his brother Kane. This attests to his quality as a wrestler, given that Undertaker has often found himself at the forefront of the Royal Rumble.

At the 2003 Royal Rumble, The Undertaker entered the match as the 30th entrant for the second time in his career. Despite never having won a Royal Rumble match, Undertaker had a great opportunity to change that. He immediately began by eliminating John Cena, Jamal, and Batista one after the other. Maven, who had attempted to eliminate Undertaker for the second year in a row, failed again.

The Undertaker sought revenge by eliminating Maven himself. Undertaker then turned his attention towards his brother Kane and eliminated him too, but he couldn’t get the better of his SmackDown colleague Brock Lesnar, who went on to win the Rumble for the first time in his career. In 2007, The Undertaker had another chance to win the Royal Rumble match. Just like in 2003, he entered from the number 30 position, giving him a favorable advantage.

The Undertaker made quick work of MVP and The Great Khali for his first eliminations. The ending of the match was one of the greatest in Royal Rumble history. Two-time winner Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker went back and forth, keeping fans on the edge of their seats. The Undertaker managed to avoid Michael’s Sweet Chin Music and threw him over the top rope to win the Rumble for the first time. He became the first Royal Rumble winner to win from the number 30 spot.

Will The Undertaker be at Royal Rumble 2024?

The WWE Royal Rumble 2024 is one of the most highly anticipated pay-per-view events that the entire WWE universe is eagerly awaiting, particularly for the Rumble matches. The Royal Rumble is known for the unexpected returns, debuts, and appearances of stars and legends.
