The complete list of survival times for the 2020 men’s Royal Rumble match

The 2020 men’s Royal Rumble match lasted 60 minutes and 7 seconds (60m 07s).

The survival time for a superstar is the time that lapses between the point when he steps foot into the ring and the time that his feet hit the floor to signal elimination. This does not include the time it takes for a superstar to make his way from the entrance ramp down to the actual ring.

The average superstar survival time for the 2020 men’s Royal Rumble match was 6m 27s and the median survival time was 3m 21s.

Here is the full list of survival times for all 30 superstars:

Every listed time above should be viewed with a margin of error of about two seconds or so.

11 superstars failed to survive for more than one minute, mostly thanks to Brock Lesnar.

Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura combined to survive for 0m 38s, which is just the latest example of their consistently weak booking.

Karl Anderson finished with the 7th highest survival time.

Only four superstars survived for at least 15 minutes. The last time that happened was in 2015.

You have to go back to the 2010 Royal Rumble to find a recent one with shorter average and median survival times than this one.
