SRS #RetroRumble: 2008-2016: Names From The Past Emerge, Surprises, Failures, More!

2017 marked the first Royal Rumble I attended. I'm not much of a traveler -- a lot of my work I can do remotely. It's always been a bucket list item, however, so I jumped at the opportunity to go. To prepare, I re-watched every Royal Rumble event, and used the #RetroRumble hashtag (originally #RumbleRetro). I'll be bringing you these in installments of every ten years, with links to additional series. Enjoy!

You can see part one (1988-1997) at this link, part two (1998-2007) at this link, and part four (Lost Rumbles) at this link!
