Here's the GIF you've all been waiting for.

Kofi Kingston did it again, folks.

In the Royal Rumble two years ago, he managed to avoid elimination by doing a handstand and actually walking on his hands to reach the steel steps. He outdid himself the next year, using a chair to hop to the ring from the announce desk.

Now, in tonight's (Sun., Jan. 26, 2014) Royal Rumble match at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he outdid himself one more time with the following save (GIF via SB Nation):

That's seriously impressive.

Kingston found himself laid out on the barricade across the ring after Alexander Rusev caught him and kneed his guts a bit before walking to the back after he himself had been eliminated. Kingston recovered before executing the move you see in the GIF above.

He walked the tightrope, somehow finding enough room to maneuver to generate enough momentum to carry him all the way to the ring apron. And he's oh so close to coming up just short, which would have been a disaster and maybe seriously injured him.

Instead, we've got yet another memorable Rumble moment.
