Royal Rumble saves

WWE just uploaded this video of Kofi Kingston's Royal Rumble "saves":

After watching the video, I have a few hot takes to share...

Hot take #1:

Kofi Kingston's all-time greatest "save" did not take place at the Royal Rumble.  It took place at WrestleMania 30 during the AndrĂ© the Giant Memorial Battle Royal:

The dude got launched out of the ring, over the ring post, and managed to keep his feet on the ring steps.  God damn.

Hot take #2:

The greatest Royal Rumble save of all time was not performed by Kofi Kingston.  It was performed by John Morrison at the 2011 Royal Rumble.

Morrison's save is great because it starts off like a normal elimination, but then he simply decides to break away from the standard physics of professional wrestling.  I don't remember ever seeing a wrestler hang off the barricade until Morrison did it.
