Default The Royal Rumble Pool - 2019



For the up coming WWE Royal Rumble, I figure it we should make it more interesting for us fans and do a pool.

Rules arent written in stone since it's the first time we've done it (and we can debate how to run this) but here's what I figure we should do:

- Pool participant cap at 15
- Picks are not for the wrestler but based on entrant's # (part of the fun is finding out who your pick is)
- We make picks in both Men & Women Rumbles
- Depending on how many people are playing, everyone gets at least four picks:
(eg. first pick from men's rumble between numbers 1-15, second pick men's 16-30, third pick women's 1-15, fourth pick women's 16-30)
- Winner of the pool is based on total eliminations
- Rumble winner pick is worth five eliminations (5 added on top of their eliminations. eg Ruby Riott eliminates 3 women and wins the rumble. 8 points for her pick)

post here if you want to sign up. Sign up ends new years day or when we hit 15

I've randomized our list with https://www.browserling.com/tools/random-lines

here's the draft order:

1) Mile
2) Gundo
3) keenan87
4) CMPunk
5) Pizza
6) Superflyer
7) SuperMatt18
8) Trackercowe
9) zukes
10) Esoteric
11) Derek Sutton
12) CaptainCrunch
13) KelVarnsen
14) Maritime Q-Scout
15) agulati

Alt) Julio

Rules for picks

First round of picks are for the women.
Pick a number from each 1-15 and 16-30 for the Women's Rumble

Second round of picks are for the men.
Pick a number from each 1-15 and 16-30 for the Men's Rumble

Snake Draft applies so Mile makes his two picks for the Women and then gets his last picks for the Men's Rumble. Agulati gets last picks for the Women and gets first picks for the Men. Maritime Q goes next after Agulati and so forth

After you posted your numbers here, please PM the next person on your list

Everyone has up to 48 hours (Extra 24 hours if their time is over Xmas and New years day) to make their picks. Time starts from the previous person's pick

Anyone not making their pick in time will have an Alternate make their pick for them that round. If we run out of Alternates, a left over pick would be assigned to them at the end of the round. (eg. CMPunk fails to make his pick in time, Julio now makes the pick. Pizza fails to make the next pick in time, no other Alts are left, so it's Superflyer's turn and Pizza gets assigned the left over pick at the end of the round. CMPunk and Pizza can pick again in the 2nd round. Julio can make another Alt pick in the 2nd round if someone else doesnt respond in time)

I figure this should make everything fair and allows more people, like Julio, to sign up even though we have our 15.

Count me in. We do this every year. We throw $10 inti a pot and draw numbers out of a hat.

Half goes to the winner, half to most eliminations.

I think last year we did it twice one for men and one for women (so $20 total iirc).

Regardless this is fun. May it be 2008 again (the only year I won).

We need to add in a guess of who the usual mystery entrance is.

of all the PPVs, The Rumble is always the best one to watch among a good number of friends.

The countdown, the surprise entrants, the dream matchups of wrestlers from both brands, all of those elements coming together just makes the whole concept of it fun.

You're lucky man, all of my attitude era friends have moved on

I couldn't agree more. I am lucky that they still watch (heck that's likely why I still do). In fact one of my best friends recently did commentary for NJPW, so not only still watch but working in the field.

That said, even if I stopped watching (given the current product and time constraints I've barely flowed and haven't watched a PPV in months) I'd still try and get to the Rumble.

I'd love to go see it live one day, perhaps in a few years when the rumored Toronto show happens?

zukes would be our 15th, but if you're up for it, we can have you as our alternate if someone doesnt respond to their pick in time.
