For nostalgia sake lol.. Im not even a pro wrestling fan (I was when I was a kid) but I got the free month trial on WWE network and have been watching old school 80's and 90's stuff for laughs. Can any of you guys recommend some epic matches or favorite Rumble's?

We have some good gambling sessions on the royal rumbles. With 30 wrestlers, we will make 30 squares. The wrestler that comes out on your number is your guy. Whoever wins gets whole pot. It's so much fun - everyone gets into it. Lots of yelling and laughing. RR is awesome.

1992 royal Royal rumble is greatest one. After that, the rumbles between 1997-2001.

90 is the best imo. The beginning of 89 was amazing when it happened.

The year Ric Flair wins it is the best, IMO. It's also the greatest piece of color commentary ever by Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. I think it was 1993.

The Rumble itself was pretty decent as well.

Stone Cold said in one of his recent podcast that he was accidentally eliminated from one of the Royal rumbles where he was supposed to be in the final four and get a really big push at the time. He said he accidentally fell out, touched the ground, and then just had to shrug his shoulders LOL. I would  like to see that footage.

Their steel cage match from an episode of Raw around the same time period is in my top five all-time favorite matches.

OP asked for "epic matches" not just Rumbles. I couldn't remember the event, but I thought that I gave enough info for OP to find it on the network, thnks for the added detail though.

You're right - I misread it. Sorry about that.

Definitely one of the all-time greats!

That was from summer 1998. ECW's Heat Wave '98 was from around the same time period and that was an EXCELLENT PPV:

-Masato Tanaka vs Mike Awesome
-RVD & Sabu vs Hayabusa & Shinzaki
-Dreamer, Sandman, & Spike Dudley vs Bubba Ray, D-Von, & Big Dick (RIP) Dudley
