Tried uploading this on other video sites but it got quickly rejected. Can’t think why. I’ve signed up to Vimeo Plus which gives me longer video file-sizes and seems to work. For now.


Right, used the times from The History Of WWE website as opposed to Wikipedia. If you need to ask why, it’s because one’s a very trusted source for information and the other’s Wikipedia. So any differences/mistakes/Kayfabe, take it up with them.


List was originally going to be ”Everyone who lasted under a minute” but when I counted and realised there’s over ninety wrestlers who fit that criteria I thought ”fuck it” and did the quickest fifty, all of whom helpfully enough lasted under thirty seconds.


Wrestlers who never made it into the Rumble were left out (Scotty 2 Hotty, Spike Dudley, Fit Finlay etc.) for obvious reasons. Not obvious enough for me to not mention it, but nearly obvious none the less.

    That one MSP member had so much trouble both getting in and getting out.

  • Levikeinz

    Bushwhacker Luke’s is the best of all time, hands down!

  • I don’t know why WWE likes to bring up the record shortest time for eliminations in their By the Numbers video packages. What purpose does it serve other than to bury a comedy jobber?

  • ReasyMo

    That ’09 Dolph Ziggler elimination will never not be funny. Even Shawn Michaels (before the HBK days) falls victim to this list. Makes me want to watch the RR on the ‘E Network.

  • Codster9

    If you listen closely, when THE Brian Kendrick botches his own elimination, you can hear him say “I know, over the top rope!”.

  • Jamie Rosen

    Awful lot of these involve HBK getting to be the one doing the eliminating.

  • arglebargle

    “7. The Godfather (2014) 5 seconds” is not from 2014.

  • Brix

    lol at MSP guy hanging himself at 9:15

  • Georgerv

    Is this video ever returning?

  • Codster9

    No video? 🙁
