    So Sunday is the most exciting event in scripted sports. Not the Pro Bowl, but the Royal Rumble!

    I'm hoping there are people, like me, who enjoy the grand theatrics of the Royal Rumble. I am also hoping there are people, also like me, who will wager on anything.

    So here's what's proposed: I'm looking for 29 other people to put up a minimum of 44 oz. When we have all thirty people, I'll place everyone into random order generator (http://fftoolbox.com/draft_order_generator.cfm). The number you get is the entry you get in the Rumble.

    Here's the prize breakdown:

    Winner of Rumble - 10 boxes with no requirement to ship a box
    Most Eliminations - 9 boxes
    Longest Survivor - 9 boxes
    Quickest to be Eliminated - 1 box

    If there's a tie, most likely with most eliminations, it will go to wrestler that did it first.

    Lower 48 States only. Have a good trader history or someone to vouch for you. Obviously no one on the bad trader list. Be prepared to ship your box by Feb. 4th.

    I think that covers it. Just reply and BM me your email address so I the order generator can send you the order of everyone. Cheers and good luck!

    This looks awesome! I'm working on too many boxes right now to participate, but I just wanted to leave this here:

    God I am such a degenerate, but I think I have to do this...hopefully I don't end up with Brodus Clay or someone else that's going to last for 11 seconds.

    If we only get 15, we could give everyone 2 wrestlers. Just an idea in case this doesn't fill up.

    That said, this should fill up. I don't care how scripted it is, the Royal Rumble is awesome and not enjoying it is like hating sunshine and beer.

    If you'll have me, I'd be glad to join in on this one. It will give a new aspect to one of my favorite PPVs of the year.

    I didn't join in on the fantasy hockey one because it seemed to be too big a deal to get in, but some people said they'd vouch for me if need be. (Honestly, if it would hurry up and get over with, I'd have a good reference for shipping with the Playoff Pick'em in which I did horribly.)

    BM when I get home later. (Just wanted to reserve a spot in case there is a run on them.)

    I was thinking this too. I'm hoping though, we'll be fine.

    Also, for the purpose of avoiding having a person win multiple time, I'm gonna add the stipulation that the winner of most eliminations cannot be the same person as the person who survived the longest. Uggh, I should have thought of all these scenario's beforehand!

    So it looks like we might have to cut off sign up at 15 ... if we get 3 more people.

    Payouts would then be 5, 4, 4, and one.

    Hopefully we get there!
