Title: 2nd Annual Royal Rumble Game

Info:
With all the 2014 Pay-Per-Views now in the bank, we can now look forward to the future and the first Pay-Per-View of 2015. The Royal Rumble! The most unpredictable and exciting event on the wrestling calendar has nearly arrived.

Last year we had 10 people join and each had 3 entrants. This year I hope we can get 15 total, so that we can each have 2 spots and will make for a very interesting viewing.

Around about a week before the 2015 Royal Rumble I will post a quiz of about 10 questions and the first person to PM me all the correct answers will receive an entry of their choice. The official quiz date will be confirmed soon.

After the quiz I will ramdomise the order and everyone should get an even amount of picks. In the event that the picks cannot be evenly distributed than the people who joined first will get more picks.

Any questions or suggestions PM me or post below. 



Confirmed Match Card:
Brock Lesnar (c) VS John Cena for WWE World Heavyweight Championship
30 Man Royal Rumble Match



The Favourites:

Roman Reigns
The first person to throw his name into the hat was Roman. The runner-up in last years event, put in a record-breaking performance by eliminating 12 superstars from the event. After being on the sidelines since September, Reigns will want to kick off 2015 with a bang and prove to everyone that he is not just hype.

Seth Rollins
Mr. Money in the Bank and who many consider to be the future of the WWE. Rollins has been on a hot streak lately rarely losing and when he does it seems to be due to outside interference. Rollins unbelievable athleticism and naturally gifted ability make him one of the favourites in this match

Dean Ambrose
Dean Ambrose is perhaps one of the toughest competitors ever. He has already returned and survived from 2 career threatening injuries. That sort of resilience and determination doesn't go unnoticed and he has quickly become one of the most popular superstars currently in WWE. Ambrose will be looking to do all he can in the rumble for his fans and to prove to everyone that he can win the big matches.

Rusev
Rusev is the only undefeated superstar in the WWE right now. Yet to be pinned or made to submit, the Russian powerhouse has been rampaging through the entire roster. With Rusev's size and elite speed for a big-man he will be perhaps the hardest man to eliminate from the match-up.

Randy Orton
Randy has already won a rumble before and with a renewed vigor after being injured, he will want to mark his territory and return to the main-event of Wrestlemania which was where he was last year. Randy Orton is a name that strikes fear in the heart of his opponents, and being the most naturally gifted competitor in history make him one of the favourites for this match.

Bray Wyatt
Perhaps he is the most bizarre person that WWE has ever seem. Bray Wyatt has all the tools to be a major star and since debuting just over a year ago, already holds wins over a handful of former World Champions. Wyatt has a certain mystique and always seems to get inside his opponents head. If he does this at the Rumble he will be the one to watch.

Dolph Ziggler
Ziggler has been on a roll as of late with a massive performance in the Survivor Series and at TLC reclaiming the Intercontinental Championship. Ziggler has a very unique style of offence which seems to suit the Rumble match and combine this with his speed and agility makes him a undeniable favourite in this match

Ryback
Ryback has been rolling since his return in late October. He seems to have gotten a lot faster and is now starting to get all of his trademark strength back. Ryback has the God-Given power to eliminate nearly anyone and he will like the chaotic environment of the Rumble.

Daniel Bryan
The ultimate dark-horse. Despite the fact that he has been on the sideline for 7-8 months many people believe that Bryan is the most talented wrestler ever and could well make a return to action at the 2015 Royal Rumble. Bryan knows every move in the book and his quickness and will-power definitely suit the Rumble match. Bryan would definitely be at home studying all of the other competitors and mapping out a strategy for them. But of course the chances of Daniel returning are very unlikely with his troublesome neck issues ongoing.

Although I don't actually watch WWE anymore I still read the dirt sheets every day to keep in the loop of what is going on, and the Rumble and WM are the only WWE I watch these days. The Rumble is the best for sure!

They where going to bring back a lot of old ECW guys for this Rumble and make it a 40 man, but they recently scrapped that idea and are staying with the original 30

I'm making a few changes to my picks. Updated picks below

Most Eliminations: Roman Reigns
Ironman(Longest Survivor): Dolph Ziggler
Entry 1: Dean Ambrose
Entry 30: Rusev
Surprise Entrant(s): Diamond Dallas Page
Final Four: Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Rusev, Daniel Bryan

I want to put Reigns and Bryan as the last two, but I don't think WWE would have one of them knock out the other, both being faces, so I've put Rusev there for now.  :-\

Ok with the addition of RiOtChEsS we have 14.

I've decided that 14 is enough and we can each have 2 picks and 2 people will get 3!

The first 2 people to answer the quiz correctly will receive 3 picks instead of 2.

Any preferences as to when the quiz should be posted?

I reckon instead of the first 2 to answer correctly, it should be whoever gets the most right in the quiz. If more than one gets the most, put the names in random.org and the first two names generated get them.

If it's first 2 to answer correctly (assuming everyone gets 'em right), because people live all over the country and are on at different times, it isn't fair on some.

Post the quiz early enough so that people have enough time to answer, a few working days should be fine.

Post by: Hellopplz on January 20, 2015, 09:16:14 PM
I should update my prediction because of that, did mine before they added him to the match!

Reckon he's still a chance to be thrown in there if he doesn't have the title, but would likely come in late.

Yeah, most weren't too difficult because I used to be a big wrestling fan and don't mind my wrestling trivia.

Had to guess a few though like 5 and the last one (because I haven't been following WWE much for a while now).

Eh, point was that mine was more of a stab in the dark than most since I really haven't been following WWE lately whereas anybody who has would probably have more of an idea of who's actually likely to win.

To be fair this rumble is becoming quite unpredictable more so then the previous years where you could pick the winner a few weeks even months away. Could make a case for at least 7-9 blokes that could win it

Bryan and Reigns are the front runners but everyone I named have has a huge chance all of whom are heavily involved in the authority storyline right now. (Apart from Wyatt)

If you do read wrestling sites you would know that there have been a bit of concern regarding Reigns push due to his lack of mic skills. Bryan on the other hand would be a great wrestling story if he won it would be even a better story if he is cheated out of a win.

No way they let Sting win the Rumble :o.

A clear two front runners (even though one is coming a year late) but have a few smokies if WWE did want to throw a spanner in the works. I'd love to see Ziggler win :P.

It is unlikely but say Sting wins the rumble and defeats Lesnar at Mania what better way for Rollins to cement his position as a star then by cashing in on Sting to end Mania.

Orton vs Lesnar will to be a good match for mania

Rollins was also always knocked for his hopelessness on the mic prior to WWE and even in his early days with NXT.

Reigns a bit too in that regard. But they're both tremendous athletes.

Ambrose has always been a god on the mic though. I would mark out big time for Jon Moxley.

Royal Rumble Interesting Facts:

- The 2015 Royal Rumble will be the 28th.

- The Ironman of the Rumble has been Entry 1, amazingly 8 different times and Entry 2 has been the Ironman on 6 occasions.

I'd count Batista as a heel for last year, even if they thought he was a face coming in :P.

Yay!  :D

I don't think it's gonna make too much of a difference having 3 as opposed to 2, but it's good to have my chances increased ever so slightly.

With the numbers I have, my best bet is likely gonna be #25 since it's a rarity that the winner comes from a number outside of the 20s. If memory serves me well, I think Hulk Hogan won from 25 in like 1990 or 1991 (I know he won back-to-back in those year but don't remember which it was).

Luke Harper and Mizdow... Never stood a chance :P. Congratz Jay ;).

The Championship match was pretty damn good, enjoyed it a heap. Friend and I enjoyed it alot and I called it when Rollins would almost win then Lesnar would recover and come in for the win. Still was a great match and really showed off Rollins as a top heel and can hold his own against the big guys of the company.

The Rumble I knew was gonna be a bit eh when it was the Miz and R-Truth who entered as first two... Neither were going to last long. I liked Wyatt lasting and looking strong, but him getting eliminated like that (as were guys like Ziggler/Ambrose) was weeeeaaaakkk. I get they wanted to make Reigns look strong, but I wanted Bryan to at least last longer than that :(.

WWE copping heaps of heat over how the Rumble was

Wyatt, Bryan, Ambrose and Ziggler went out so weakly. It was just ridiculous

And having Show and Kane left with Reigns, I mean seriously? Every single person knew Reigns would win from that point

Should have been Wyatt, Reigns, Bryan, Ziggler and Ambrose as last 5 to make it really interesting and make us believe any one of them could win

Without doubt the worst Rumble I've ever seen. Really did look like it was all planned last minute with zero thought put into anything except for who to win

It's just plain bad when the winner is as clear as day before the match and then when they have the chance to make it suspenseful they don't even capitalise.

The only one who could even challenge Reigns for the win would have been Bryan (unless they wanted to throw a spanner in the works), and after he was gone so early, was so obvious :(.

I thought it was alright. people who say it was predictable must have already known Big Show and Kane were gonna eliminate a couple of big names. that's a good guess cos I didn't predict that! and Bryan eliminated early as flower, I definitely didn't predict that

crowd showerted me. boo'd every guy cos Bryan was eliminated

having said that though, the WWE is a joke nowadays compared to 10 or so years ago when they used to have flowerin sick matches

I got some good solid contenders in R-Truth and Goldust. :P

If they plan to add Bryan to the Wrestlemania match, I reckon they should follow a plan like this to make it different to last year.

Let Seth Rollins get pissed off so much at Heyman and Lesnar (as an interview was done in place of Raw where Seth still showed his disdain for Lesnar) and make him continue being pestered by Heyman for like the next month and cash in the Money in the Bank Briefcase to get into the Wrestlemania match with Reigns and Lesnar. And still have Bryan fight against the Authority with some sort of match stacked against him at Fastlane/Elimination Chamber. Have him be able to overcome these odds and win a spot to get a shot at the Gold at Wrestlemania, against whatever the Authority throw at him.

This would make the Main Event be: Lesnar Vs Reigns Vs Rollins Vs Bryan. Pretty sure the combo of those four could make it work, got two power guys and two creative, brilliant performers. Even if Bryan doesn't come away with the win (e.g. Let Rollins or Reigns win), he got into the Main Event and gets to show off Reigns/Rollins at the same time who are meant to be the future of the company.

Something I was pondering if WWE were to possibly add Bryan to the match but not make it repeat what they did last year (exactly).
Title: Re: 2nd Annual Royal Rumble Game

Vince isn't going to add Bryan to the match because he did it last year

You know what, who cares if it's Reigns vs Brock? Reigns is going to win, it's a done deal

I'd love to see them do something with Bryan and Rollins. Those two in a one on one match would be epic, then they can challenge Reigns for the belt after WM

Seems alright in that Promo, understanding or it but not much he can do about it personally from here so nothing against him.

Yeah expected Reigns to beat Brock at Wrestlemania, but if Rollins goes after Bryan (instead of the expected Orton), I'm certainly not going to complain ;D.

just thinking out loud

since they are building Reigns wouldn't surprise me if he wins at WM then Rollins cashes in the Brief case but Reigns still beats him

I think it would be a really bad idea for Rollins to cash in and lose. Would undo months and months of his hard work and push/rise. Same can be said for Rusev. If he loses to Cena at WM then the past 6 months has been for nothing

Pretty sure Cole said Rollins has until the next MITB to cash it in, so he could have it for ages

Think they had Rusev vs Cena for Wrestlemania planned months ago... Hope Rusev overcomes Cena as he set back Bray Wyatt for ages by beating him last year.

I feel like Rusev really is the second coming of Kozlov. His novelty is going to wear off soon.

Kozlov is/was never as good as Rusev.

I remember the first time I saw him in NXT, he lost the match to Ziggler but showed off his power and athleticism despite it. Most of his matches on Raw though could be fast forwarded cause know how they'll end (and fairly quickly).

he won't get far. he may win the belt one, maybe 2 times, but he'll die down after that

i like the fatal 4 way concept HP, specualtion is Lesnar isnt re signing with WWE so he is dropping it to somebody

Daniel Bryan basically had to forfeit the title due to injury, he absolutely should be in the title equation now he is back

The biggest question is what will he do after his streak ends, He has more talent then guys like Kozlov, Umaga and Khali did during there undefeated streaks. Rusev can remain relevant for a long time.

So apparently Vince is mad that Titus, Reigns and Ambrose botched Titus' elimination because he was supposed to equal Santino's record. Apparently it was the only thing in the match requiring perfect timing. Not sure what Titus did to deserve that so I'm glad it was botched.

Maybe it's time Vince took a backseat cos that rumble was average at best, apart from bubba ray the boogie man and how long bray Wyatt lasted it was pedestrian, was obvious reigns was going to win after Bryan was eliminated far to early

The boogeyman was flowering awful if anything it made Wyatt look on the same level as the miscellaneous characters we have had in the past.

Apparently Jamie Noble was the one who booked the rumble with obviously a major input by Vince.

Hopefully this is a huge learning curve for Vince that maybe it is time to step aside, The last 2 rumbles have been very predictable and have gone down just plain awful.

he clotheslined him and threw him over the top rope in less than 10 seconds, not the same level at all, just a novelty

Either way they made Wyatt look more like a comical character by having him square off with the Boogeyman, This could of been done with a backstage segment. Having them both in the rumble even if it was for half a minute trying to out freak each other was a bad move.

The Boogeyman is just one of the reasons as to why this rumble was indeed the worst of all-time.

I cant believe The Boogeyman is still even getting gigs.

He was at RAW a week or two ago, in the crowd and had his face totally covered. Had nothing to do with the show, was just there watching, and covered up. Weirdo
