Leading up to this Royal Rumble, WWE made a big deal about the past records from the history of the event.  They had a list of the guys who stayed in the match the longest, the most eliminations, the guy who stayed in the ring the shortest, and quite a few other things.

I kept track of some of the statistics for the 2011 Royal Rumble, and while these numbers certainly aren’t official, I think some of you are going to find this information interesting.
