While there were several statistics coming out of last night’s Royal Rumble, but there was one that wasn’t mention. According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, the Men’s Rumble is the oldest Royal Rumble match in history, second only to last year’s Men’s match.
The only wrestlers that were in the Rumble that were under the age of thirty, as Otis is 29 and Dominik Mysterio is 23. Sixteen of the wrestlers, over half the field, were 40 years or older. This includes the eventual winner, Edge, who is 47.
