Maybe I'm bias being Scottish, but 2020 is my favourite of all time. Thought it was booked amazingly, and they brought Drew out to put an end to Brocks' domination at the perfect time, JUST as the novelty was starting to wear off.

Recently I LOVED 2018 and I really liked 2020. Both super refreshing in a 2010s era of pretty forgettable to downright horrible Rumble matches. 2018 really blindsided me and might be my second favorite Rumble ever. I think the Brock run in 2020 is sort of eye-rolling on paper but WWE actually did a great job with the story and the second half of the match is really, really good.
I think 1997 is awfully underrated and a ton of fun.
1992, 2004, 2007, 2008 are probably my other favorites. 1992 is just a perfect representation of that era of wrestling and is sort of a send-off for the golden era. 2004 is just very well done. 2007 is good throughout but the last 10 minutes or so is really incredible. 2008 to me might be a textbook Royal Rumble match.
You can't go wrong with any of the Rumble matches from 2000 to 2010. I think they are all very good. 2009 is probably the worst in that group but WWE had a hell of a run at good Royal Rumbles in the 2000s.
Final answers in order: 1. 2008 2. 2018 3. 1992 4. 2007 5. 2004
Side note: I really do not understand the love for the 2001 Royal Rumble. I just watched it again the other night and can hardly get through the first half. The closing moments are electric but thats not enough for me to say I enjoy it. I wouldn't even put it on my top 10 Rumble matches and I just do not see how it could ever be #1.
2001 is my all time favourite. As said, any from 2000-2010 is good. '07 has one of the greatest endings. The one Rumble match I don't enjoy is 1999, but the early ones are at times rough to watch whilst still being fun to watch if that makes sense.
Don't even talk to me about the 40 man Rumble and Del Rio winning though!
