Chris Jericho was the Iron Man of the 2017 Royal Rumble

The Royal Rumble is a prime betting event for WWE and there’s plenty of fun to be had with attempting to predict not just the winner of the match but who lasts the longest (affectionately known as the Iron Man). This year’s honor goes to Chris Jericho, who entered at number two and lasted all the way to the final four.

He’s already calling himself the 61-minute man:

I am the #61MinuteMan... #royalrumble2017

WWE is officially listing his time as 1:00:13.

Of course, he spent most of the match on the outside, first just staying away from Braun Strowman and then selling an injury. He also only had two eliminations in the entire match, when he snuck up on Cesaro and Sheamus and dumped them as they were turning on each other.

Still, he’s this year’s Iron maaaaaaaaan.
