Royal Rumble is one of WWE's "Big Four" events each year. It is held in January and is a traditional battle royal-style match, meaning the participants (traditionally between 20 and 40) must eliminate their competitors by getting them over the top rope and out of the ring. The last person standing in the ring is the champion. The only difference from a conventional battle royal is that the entrants to not enter the ring at the same time, but at fixed intervals of time. They draw their times through a lottery, and sometimes more desirable entry points can be won through other means.
Competition gets brutal at the Royal Rumble. Wrestlers may leave and re-enter as long as they don't go over the top rope (Steve Austin and Vince McMahon have done this), and fighters can also be legitimately eliminated with the influence of outside forces, such as previously eliminated contestants or those never admitted into the contest (Shane McMahon entered the fight simply to eliminate Shawn Michaels in 2006).
Anything can happen at the Royal Rumble, especially with the talent that has been seen there in the past, including the likes of Hulk Hogan, Yokozuna, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Chris Benoit, The Undertaker, Batista, and John Cena, Edge, and Alberto Del Rio, who won the 2011 match.
