WWE Royal Rumble match statistics: 2012 video edition

I love it when WWE releases videos like this. Not only do we get the usual awesome production value, stat geeks like myself get to mark out over completely meaningless numbers.

Here's the rundown of what's shown in the video:

  • 31 -- The total number of WWE Hall of Famers who have competed in the Royal Rumble match, who combined to headline 21 WrestleManias
  • 695 -- Since 1988, this many superstars have entered the Rumble and been eliminated
  • 39 -- The number of superstars Shawn Michaels has eliminated throughout his illustrious career, the most of anyone ever
  • 35 -- Kane, who is in second place, has eliminated just four less than HBK and has done so while appearing in 13 consecutive Rumble matches
  • 11 -- The most superstars ever eliminated by one man in any one Rumble, accomplished by Kane in 2001
  • 194,107 -- The combined weight of all the WWE superstars who have competed in the Rumble match
  • 421,883 -- The number of fans who have attended Royal Rumble matches
  • 62:12 -- The amount of time Rey Mysterio spent in the 2006 Rumble to set the record for the longest appearance in a Rumble match.
  • 3 -- The number indicating the most victories in a Rumble match, accomplished by Stone Cold Steve Austin in 1997, 1998 and 2001
  • 0:02 -- The number of seconds it took to eliminate Warlord, who held the record for shortest time in the Rumble match for a full 20 years
  • 0:01 -- The record after it was broken by Santino Marella, who was eliminated in the 2009 Rumble match by Kane in just one second
  • 2 -- The number of women who have competed in the match, Chyna in 1999 and Beth Phoenix in 2010
  • 27 -- The entrance number in the Rumble match that has produced the most winners, with four
  • 55-percent -- The amount of superstars who have gone on to win a championship at WrestleMania that year

Any records going to fall this year? And who is going to win?
