Your comprehensive list of facts and figures for the 2004 Royal Rumble!

A few notes :

All times are as noted by me, the clock on my trusty video recorder.
The match starts when the bell rings (surprise, huh?) and a wrestler is judged to have entered the rumble when he enters the ring.
In Spike Dudley’s case, he never entered, so has no time.
Chris Benoit’s elimination of Lamont (and his wig) does not officially count. Sadly.
