Special Royal Rumble 2017 Pick'ems

Post by cero2k » Jan 19th, '17, 15:18

Rules and Regulations

Each contestant will need to make the following picks:

Entrant #2 -- Because the WWE will at times announce who will be the #1 entrant in the Rumble, predictions on the 1/2 entrant can become irrelevant. So we will start with the #2 Entrant. -------- Making a correct pick for the #2 Entrant will award a contestant 10 points!

First Wrestler Eliminated -- Easy to understand, no need to explain. -------- Making a correct pick for the First Wrestler Eliminated will award a contestant 10 points!

Shortest Time in the Rumble -- Easy to understand, no need to explain. -------- Making a correct pick for the wrestler with the Shortest Time in the Rumble will award a contestant 10 points!

Longest Time in the Rumble -- Easy to understand, no need to explain. -------- Making a correct pick for the wrestler with the Longest Time in the Rumble will award a contestant 10 points!

Most Eliminations in the Rumble -- Easy to understand, no need to explain. -------- Making a correct pick for the wrestler with the Most Eliminations in the Rumble will award a contestant 10 points!

Entrant #29 ---- Because the WWE will at times announce who will be the #30 Entrant in the Rumble, predictions on the last entrant can become irrelevant. So we will pick the #29 Entrant. -------- Making a correct pick for the #29 Entrant will award a contestant 10 points!

The Final Four --- Easy to understand, but the points awarded for these picks need explained. Correctly predicting a Final Four wrestler will award a contestant 5 points each, with a chance at 20 total points for correctly predicting the complete Final Four -------- Making a correct pick for the Final Four in the Rumble will award a contestant 5 points for each Wrestler correctly picked, 20 possible points for correctly picking all Final Four!

Last Wrestler Eliminated -- Easy to understand, no need to explain. -------- Making a correct pick for the Last Wrestler Eliminated will award a contestant 15 points!

Royal Rumble Winner -- Easy to understand, no need to explain. -------- Correctly picking the Winner of the 2015 Royal Rumble will award a contestant 20 points!

BONUS PREDICTIONS

Surprise Entrants -- Points will be awarded for correctly predicting a Surprise Entrant in the Rumble. QUALIFICATIONS FOR A SURPRISE ENTRANT: Any Wrestler who has not wrestled a match in the WWE in the previous SIX months. ----- Making a correct pick for a Surprise Entrant will award a contestant 15 points! --- And no contestant may make more than THREE Surprise Entrant predictions. This is to avoid contestants from just making a list of 100 people who could show up in the Rumble.

Kofi's Rumble Spot -- If you can somehow predict Kofi Kingston's Rumble Spot (no, not his entrant number, and actual Spot in the Match), you will be rewarded with 30 Points

It all comes down to whether Enzo lasted longer than Ellsworth. If he did, then XIV wins. If not, then it's a draw.

I literally don't know, it is so close as to who lasted how long.

Wikipedia says that Enzo outlast Ellsworth by three seconds.

Congratulations, champ!

Because it's the sort of thing they've done recently where guys who lose in the world title match get thrown in the Royal Rumble just because.

I'm not saying that Wikipedia is never wrong...

But I'll take the victory lap.

Thanks :))
