Hacksaw Jim Duggan was the Inaugural Royal Rumble winner

Before WWE’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view turned into the big event it is today, Hacksaw Jim Duggan was the first man ever to win the Royal Rumble match back in 1988 and aired on the USA Network as a special instead of WWE’s traditional pay-per-view format at the time.

The 2022 Royal Rumble event is quickly turning into one of the most intriguing WWE pay-per-views in quite some time.

Most fans assumed that Brock Lesnar was a lock to win the men’s Royal Rumble to challenge Roman Reigns to a match at WrestleMania for the third time in seven years. But with Lesnar getting his shot at Reigns at the Day 1 pay-per-view in a few weeks, the winner of the 2022 men’s Royal Rumble match is now very much up in the air.

Who will win the 2022 WWE Royal Rumble and go on to the main event of WrestleMania 38? We’ll find out soon enough.
