Braun Strowman breaks record for most Royal Rumble Match eliminations
Braun Strowman made history in more ways than one at the first-ever Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Not only did The Monster Among Men outlast 49 other Superstars to become the Greatest Royal Rumble Champion, but he also set a Royal Rumble Match record by eliminating 13 Superstars in a single bout.
Strowman’s list of victims is as follows:
2. Dan Matha
3. Big E
4. Heath Slater
5. Tye Dillinger
6. Titus O’Neil
7. Curt Hawkins
8. Great Khali
9. Shane McMahon
10. Bobby Lashley
11. Chris Jericho
12. Kevin Owens
13. Big Cass
Braun broke the record previously held by Roman Reigns, who eliminated 12 Superstars in the 2014 Royal Rumble Match.
Of course, Reigns’ Rumble bout included only 30 Superstars while Strowman had a whopping 50, but who’s going to quibble with The Monster Among Men?
With a record-breaking performance and a win in tonight’s Rumble match, it looks like 2018 will be another big year for Braun Strowman.
