You lose the Royal Rumble by touching the floor. You do not lose the Royal Rumble by touching furniture. The Royal Rumble is the game you played in your living room where the carpet was made of lava, but rugs were not.
Kofi Kingston is our nation's most innovative living room lava player, seen here pogoing on a chair back to the ring after riding big Tensai's back to the announce table. From there he talked an announcer into surrendering the vehicle you see deployed above. No word on where said commentator will sit henceforth.
Here we were wondering why Kingston didn't simply stand on the table until there was only one competitor left in the ring, seeing as he'd greatly up his chances of victory by loitering. His decision to return proved costly, as Cody Rhodes immediately dispatched of him, but his performance will nevertheless live on and be emulated with great loss of limb in offices throughout the country tomorrow.
