WWE needed to make a big impact in the first-ever women's Royal Rumble in 2018, and they achieved that by bringing back Trish Stratus. She received a fantastic pop when she made her entrance.

Arguably the best Royal Rumble return and pop in WWE history came in 2008 when John Cena returned from injury at the Rumble, entering the match at number 30.

After his surprise return, it only took eight minutes and 27 seconds for Cena to win the Royal Rumble, the third-fastest time to date. He eliminated four superstars along the way, including last eliminating Triple H to win the match.
