Every year, there are always a couple of WWE superstars that find exceptional ways to keep themselves from being eliminated from Royal Rumble matches.

The usual suspect in the men's Royal Rumble matches is Kofi Kingston of The New Day, who is well known for his elaborate ways of keeping his feet from touching the ground outside the ring.

Kofi added to his collection of amazing Royal Rumble elimination escapes last night at this year's event, but three other superstars had great escapes too, all in the women's Rumble match.

First off, Kofi used the ring apron, the ring steps, as well as his New Day tag team partner Xavier Woods to save himself from elimination in this year's Royal Rumble.

However, the elimination saves which Ember Moon, Naomi, and NXT's Kacy Catanzaro made during the women's Royal Rumble were much better and more creative.

Moon managed to save herself from elimination by using her feet to hook onto the bottom rope of the ring as she fell backward.

Naomi was almost eliminated from the match by Mandy Rose, but she managed to save herself on the barrier outside the ring, before walking across it and jumping to the ring steps.

We've saved the best until last though, as Catanzaro had the best elimination save of the night. Since she was an American Ninja Warrior, we should have seen this coming.

Using the ring barrier as well, the NXT star managed to save herself from elimination by walking on her hands over to a ring post.

She then wrapped her legs around a ring post and pulled herself up using just her legs to keep herself in the match.

Unfortunately, none of the superstars listed above won their respective Royal Rumble matches, as Seth Rollins won the men's Royal Rumble, while Becky Lynch won the women's Rumble.

Kofi was eliminated from the men's match by Drew McIntyre, while Naomi was eventually eliminated from the women's match by Rose, Moon was eliminated by Alexa Bliss, and Kacy was eliminated by NXT UK's Rhea Ripley.

Nevertheless, all four superstars did a great job in their Royal Rumble elimination saves in this year's event.
