** 1988: HacksawJimDuggan's signature "Hoooo!" and a big thumbs up after winning the first event. Also, during the undercard, JesseVentura giving a little too much assistance to DinoBravo in "helping" set a (non-legit) bench press record of 715 pounds.

** History repeats itself as the 2015 Royal Rumble also ended with the live crowd loudly booing winner Wrestling/RomanReigns in similar fashion, including chants for Bryan long after his elimination (including a Wrestling/CMPunk chant, despite his departure from the company). This has produced a similarly split reaction, although one that's more of a BaseBreaker, with some fans angry at the company as a whole for more or less {{Retcon}}ning what happened in the previous year, others angry at the creative team (but not ''at'' Reigns) for derailing Bryan's return momentum, and another group simply happy with how things turned out[[note]]Reigns being given the win coincides with his rumored bump to main event status prior to the Rumble[[/note]]. [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] coming out to support his cousin's victory and endorsing it didn't stop the jeers. That's right: one of the most popular and beloved wrestlers of all time couldn't calm down the raging crowd.

* RootingForTheEmpire: It really says a lot about how hated Wrestling/RomanReigns is when the fans are willing to cheer for Wrestlig/TripleH to win the title in 2016 as long as Reigns isn't the one to hold it. In fact, one of the only times Hunter was not universally cheered during that match is when it was down to the final two and his last opponent was EnsembleDarkhorse Wrestling/DeanAmbrose.

** In a case of TropesAreNotBad, low expectations for the 2016 Royal Rumble actually had fans genuinely surprised and elated when it turned out not to be the worst Rumble in history (except to Wrestling/BretHart). The highlight of the match was obviously Wrestling/AJStyles, but other parts were well-received as well. Some have even called it the best Rumble in the last five years.
