After a hard night, the Rabid Wolverine Chris Benoit wins the Royal Rumble 2004. Did you know that Benoit was the second person that wins the Royal Rumble entering in first? The other person was Shawn Michaels in 1995. Benoit also beat the previous record of Bob Backlund in 1993 as the person who was more time in the Royal Rumble. Rest in Peace, Chris.
