Greetings everyone! Yep we're doing it again in 2011 as it's becoming a tradition for some fun and games while watching a PPV: the Royal Rumble Lottery Pool! This year the Rumble is on January 30th so you got time to get your picks in before they even set the card as always!
Like last year i will run here in the forums on this post the Annual Royal Rumble Lottery Pool. It's very easy to play!
I will do all the tabulating and all you need to do is (UPDATED):
-Pick 5 numbers between 1 and 40. Those will represent entrants into the Royal Rumble. Like a lottery you're trying to randomly choose who will make the most eliminations from your 5 picks, and who will win.
-Using sites like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Rumble_(2011) along with andy1's live PPV reporting (yep that will return in the new year too-andy1 will post that on a separate thread), I will handle reporting who is what entry number, how many each eliminated which counts for 1 point per elimination (if they a part of a group who eliminate 1 person I will award 1 point each to everyone involved), and who wins (each person who chose the number for the winning entrant gets 3 points). The person with the most points wins!
Entries via reply posting on this thread ONLY ends on January 29, 2010 at 11:59PM EST! You will know when it closes as I'll also give my 5 numbers only then once it closes but before the PPV of course.
It's limited to 1 entry per logged in member, so post and good luck! It's meant to give more fun for the PPV and have some neat bragging rights too as a prize as we'll post here and on the wall who won! Take care and good luck this year!

Your ROYAL RUMBLE winner is ALBERTO DEL RIO!
*As advertised this will be the biggest Royal Rumble at 40 entrants.
*Before the Rumble even began the Nexus and Corre brawled before Bryan came out to officially be the #2 entrant.
*Morrison has spot of the night so far creatively staying in the ring and everyone was in awe as he landed on the barricades, jumped onto the steps to get back in!
*Nexus clearing tons of guys out so each member involved got a point for each eliminated participant in some cases.
*Your big surprises included a returning Khali (amazing considering the accusations in India with his bodyguards shooting fans), Booker T and Kevin Nash (as reported in the BTS thread). Tyler Reks, Randy Orton and Dolph Ziggler who lost their title matches did double duty.
*For whatever reason Primo got taken out of the Rumble for Hornswoggle and his horrible comedy jobbing of Slater and Kidd...I know sad when Cena and Hornswoggle do comedy together...
*Miz cost Cena even though the Miz wasn't in the Rumble itself. He was on commentary for a bit before the interference. I didn't give Miz any points since he was never in the Rumble officially.
*Alberto Del Rio got the big entrance even with Ricardo Rodriguez announcing as always.
*Diesel was hugely over and once gone he did a brief stare to Big Show on his way out.
*Santino had been corked on his entry by Sheamus and rolled UNDER the ring so he was missing until the end with Alberto.
