8. Michelle McCool (2018)
The first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match was something special. Finally, these talented women were given the same treatment as men. Everybody won from the move by WWE to have another annual rumble match added to the card. The fans were treated to another rumble and the women had another chance to prove they were just as good, if not better than the men.
This match featured some of the best women of the past and present of WWE. However, it is arguable that one woman really stole the show. Michelle McCool entered the match at number 14 and began to clear the ring. She was able to get the most eliminations in the match by taking out five different women. She was later eliminated by an old rival in Natalya.
Michelle showed that she was still as good as ever and could hold her own with today’s top women. She has only returned one other time since this appearance, but we are still holding out for more McCool in the future. However, now that her husband The Undertaker has retired, Michelle has more of a reason to stay retired herself.
7. Booker T (2011)
This return brought CM Punk down to his knees in shock and fear. Booker T made his return to WWE for the first time in nearly four years. After leaving WWE in 2007, Booker followed the route of many former WWE talents at the time and joined TNA. Booker continued to make a big name in the company and won the world championship.
Booker left TNA in 2010 was free to return home to WWE. When his theme music hit, the crowd went absolutely crazy. Unfortunately for him, the numbers were not in his favor on this night. The ring was filled with members of CM Punk’s Nexus stable. Booker only lasted a minute before the large future circus performer Mason Ryan eliminated him from the match.
However, this return for Booker led him to multiple new roles in the company. He shined as a general manager for SmackDown and was memorable as a color commentator. He is now a two-time WWE Hall of Famer and is a staple of WWE to this very day. His time in the ring has ended but Booker continues to make his name known in the world of wrestling.
