WWE "Royal Rumble" pick 'em contest, PPV airs 1-27-08



1. There are currently 5 matches signed for the PPV. Place your picks in order of your most confident pick (worth 5 points) to your least confident pick (worth 1 point). In the rare instance that there are bonus points, separate them from your list and mark them as your bonus picks.

If you want to use numbering, this is the only format accepted:

5 points: (winner)
4 points: (winner)

... and so on.

2. If another match is announced between posting of the contest and noon eastern time on Saturday, it will be added to the contest. Check back and make sure that no new matches were added! If a match changes after noon on Saturday but before the PPV, it will be eliminated from the pick 'em contest unless everyone has a chance to change their picks. If a match significantly changes during the PPV, it will be eliminated from the pick 'em contest. "Significantly" means a change in title / non-title stipulation, match participants, etc.

3. You can select "no winner" for a match if you think that it will end in a double DQ or countout.

4. Make a pick for all matches! Leaving a match out, putting "I don't care who wins" or somehow picking an impossible result (i.e. a tag team match where instead of one team or the other you mistakenly put one partner from each team) will result in a smaller list, which will be translated as the loss of your highest possible point pick. For example, in a 6 match card if you forget to enter in a match, your card goes from being worth 1-6 points to being worth 1-5 points.

5. No changing your picks after the PPV starts. Even if you want to change your pick for a match that hasn't happened yet, there are no changes once the show starts.

6. Once the totals are posted, please check my math and make sure your scores are correct. From the time the PPV ends, it takes me about an hour to tabulate results and format the new standings list. Mistakes tend to slip in, so it's always best for someone else to double-check me.

Just as with last year, there are two bonus points for the Rumble pick 'em contest:

IRON MAN: This bonus point will go for picking the man that lasts longest in the Rumble.

MONSTER: This bonus point will go for picking the man that officially throws out the most wrestlers (singly or as part of a group).

You do not have to do the bonus picks if you don't want to.



Your cut & paste form for your picks, if you'd like to use it:

5 points:
4 points:
3 points:
2 points:
1 point:

Bonus point - Monster
Bonus point - Iron Man


Last month, fighting for the title. This month, fighting a retired announcer:
Chris Jericho vs. JBL




Ric Flair's career is on the line:
M.V.P. vs. Ric Flair




For the World Heavyweight Championship:
Rey Mysterio vs. Edge (c)




For the WWE Championship:
Randy Orton (c) vs. Jeff Hardy




For a title shot at Wrestlemania:
30-man over the top rope Royal Rumble

Participants currently listed on WWE.com:

I don't normally do this but I just wanted to drop by and say I wouldn't be surprised if Hornswoggle won the Rumble.

I'll bet he eliminates at least 1 guy.

As an aside, this is one of the better PPV cards in a while. I can't think of one match on the card that will be absolute crap. I am really looking forward to this one.
