The WWE stats page notes that no WWE Superstar has ever won a Gauntlet Match where they were responsible for eliminating more than 4 opponents in a row by himself. WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin eliminated 5 straight members of The Corporation during a 1999 Gauntlet Match on RAW, but he was eliminated by the 6th opponent – Vince McMahon.
