* 1993: Wrestling/RandySavage executes his [[FinishingMove flying elbow drop]] on {{Wrestling/Yokozuna}}, and goes for the pin, apparently forgetting that it was the Royal Rumble. Yokozuna responds by tossing Savage over the ropes ''while lying on the ground''.
* 1994: Wrestling/DoinkTheClown comes out as [[Wrestling/KevinNash Diesel]] and [[Wrestling/BrianAdams Crush]] are beating on each other, opting to take the LetsYouAndHimFight approach by standing in the other corner laughing at them... until they notice his presence. He then uses a ''SquirtingFlower'' to blind them and gain the upper-hand.

** Drew Carey enters the Royal Rumble just as Wrestling/MattHardy and Wrestling/JeffHardy eliminate each other. Drew Carey celebrates while he's alone in the ring, but then the timer runs out, and Kane makes his entrance. Drew Carey desperately tries to get out of it, first by [[AintTooProudToBeg begging the referees for help]], then offering a handshake to Kane, then trying to bribe him. Just as Kane is setting him up for a chokeslam, however, Raven enters, saving him from certain doom by smacking Kane with a pool cue. While Kane's distracted by Raven, Drew Carey quickly [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere climbs over the ropes and eliminates himself]].

** Matt Hardy ([[RunningGag Version 1]]) avoiding elimination on numerous occasions because of Shannon Moore actively keeping Matt from touching the floor through such tactics as lying on the ground & letting Matt stand on him. It takes Wrestling/BrockLesnar ''[[NoKillLikeOverkill F-5ing]]'' Hardy out of the ring onto Moore to eliminate him.
* 2004: Wrestling/ChrisBenoit and Wrestling/RandyOrton had just eliminated several guys in a row and then collapsed from exhaustion. The announcers mentioned that the next person to come out would have a huge advantage. But that person turned out to be Ernest "The Cat" Miller, who decided to dance to his theme music alongside his ostentatiously-wigged manager, Lamont, instead. Benoit and Orton were not amused, and threw ''both'' of them over the top rope. Made even funnier by Lamont's wig coming off in Benoit's hand in mid-elimination. One recap listed "Lamont's wig eliminated" in the timeline.

** Wrestling/TheNewDay were a treat the entire night. Not only did Wrestling/XavierWoods get a new trombone, but a fan in the audience, who was sitting in plain view of the hard-cam, had a sign with a giant [[TabletopGame/YuGiOh Horn of the Unicorn card on it, saying he increased New Day's attack power by 700 pts.]] Sadly, it wasn't [[Creator/LittleKuriboh Little Kuriboh.]]
** Speaking of The New Day, Kofi Kingston [[RunningGag again avoided elimination]], this time by getting caught by Big E, then getting carried around the ring on his shoulders. However, Kofi Kingston would be eliminated by getting dropkicked off the apron by Wrestling/ChrisJericho while trying to get back in the ring.
** During the Last Man Standing match between Wrestling/DeanAmbrose and Wrestling/KevinOwens:
---> '''Fan:''' ''[while Kevin Owens is setting up tables]'' Happy Thanksgiving!\\
'''Kevin Owens:''' Thanksgiving is in November, moron!

** Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin and Wrestling/TripleH were in the ring with the Hurricane and Hurricane got the goozle on both of them, prepping them for a chokeslam. They sold it like he's Wrestling/TheUndertaker or Wrestling/{{Kane}} for about five seconds before [[AsideGlance they both looked at each other]] and realized they're being choked by ''the freakin' Hurricane.'' Just as it dawned on the Hurricane that he just grabbed the necks of the two most decorated wrestlers of the Rumble that year, they grabbed him by the back of the neck and threw him over the ropes.
