-Jericho spent much of the first third chilling outside the ring. When he finally decided to get back in at #9, The Big Show quickly knocked him out, sending him under the ropes to once again chill on the outside. Jericho would reenter and exit the ring at random intervals for the rest of the match.
-Dean Ambrose tricked James Ellsworth into going into the ring without him, which resulted in his swift (and painful) elimination by Braun Strowman.
-Baron Corbin eliminated Braun Strowman after a Helluva Kick from Sami Zayn.
-Cesaro delivered the Cesaro Swing to multiple people in the ring at the time of his entrance, including tag team partner Sheamus (presumably by accident due to dizziness).
-Sheamus and Cesaro would team up to eliminate all three members of The New Day, only to get into a fight among themselves, allowing Chris Jericho to sneak up and eliminate both men.
-Luke Harper turned on Bray Wyatt and hit him with a discus clothesline. He was about to hit Bray with the Sister Abigail until Randy Orton saved him with the RKO.
-Goldberg speared and eliminated Brock Lesnar in under one minute.
-The Undertaker eliminated Goldberg by sneaking up on him after the former WCW champ eliminated Luke Harper.
-Roman Reigns eliminated The Undertaker by sneaking up on him after a chokeslam to Chris Jericho.
-Final four: Roman Reigns, Chris Jericho, Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton. Reigns eliminated Jericho, and then eliminated Wyatt. He went for a spear on Orton but ran right into an RKO. Orton clotheslined Reigns over the top to win the 2017 WWE Royal Rumble.
