    Burn It Down - The Women's Royal Rumble Game 2018!

    Burn It Down - The Women's Royal Rumble Game 2018!



    Due to popular demand, we're running TWO games this year! This will be a fascinating experiment in booking, costing, and team building, because the women's side of the table is far more open than the men's.

    Is Asuka the prohibitive favorite? Do you believe Ronda Rousy will make her debut this month? How many NXT women will be called up for just the Rumble? What legends will we see? There is so much potential for pure unpredictability and chaos!

    Here are the rules, same as the men's game.


    The Rules


    1. You have 100 points to construct a team of up to 8 Superstars. The point cost of each wrestler is below.

    2. Scoring is simple, it's based on the order of elimination. The first person eliminated is worth 1 point. The 20th person eliminated is worth 20 points.

    3. 20 extra points if your team features the winner of the entire Rumble!

    4. Post your team below in the comments any time between now and January 24th (the Wednesday before the Royal Rumble) and I will add it to the list of teams competing.

    5. The prize? You have two options, take your pick. #1, like last year, you can create a new signature for me to use until next year's Royal Rumble Game. Previously I had a very embarrassing, hilarious Roman Reigns love poem created by TheImplications(due to another lost bet); that could be YOU designing it this time! Option #2, you can write a fake advertisement for me to read, on air, during The Perfect Ten Radio Show after the Royal Rumble. Again, as funny or embarrassing as you want it to be(picture the episode of Supernatural where Loki makes Sam do an ad about his genital herpes).

    That's the end of the rules! Now what I'm sure you've been waiting for, here are the wrestlers and their values!

    Trish- 18

    Nikki Cross- 10
    Billie Kay- 11
    Paige- 23
    Ruby- 19

    Going with two people that if they return will not be treating badly, two people that are high up the list of women in NXT and two that need to be booked strong to keep their groups strong.

    Wow, I think you got the balance right with putting Asuka WAY high. Here are my picks. I've gone with a high risk but overall strategy, doubt any of mine will win the actual rumble but with some late entries and a bit of luck picking the NXT/legends (and I use that term loosely).

    Paige - 23
    Lita - 15
    Kelly Kelly - 7
    Carmella - 12
    Lana - 9
    Nikki Cross - 10
    Peyton Royce - 12
    Tamina - 11

    Sorry for the double post but I just read that Paige is done in-ring. Can I replace her with Bekky Lynch?

    40?! It's annoying that you're right in giving them both that number.

    Four Horsewomen of NXT team, assemble!

    Sasha Banks - 22
    Becky Lynch - 23
    Bayley - 18
    Charlote Flair - 15
    Brie MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - 14
    And the outside bet! I choose Molly Holly with the remaining points (that's 8 btw)!

  10. #10
    Added Molly Holly and LayCool.

    I also read that about Paige. That had BETTER be bad reporting/a ruse, or I am actually going to cry. Paige made me interested in women's wrestling again after years of bad Divas matches.

    Also swapped out Paige for Becky for you, Sam.

    LOVE the Kelly Kelly pick, I was really hoping someone would pick her. I almost made her 1 point just so everyone could lol

    LOL @Imp, nice team. Great contrast between your real picks and...Brie Bella. Feel very confident I am going to TORCH you in this one(not necessarily the men's game though).

    And I'm stoked that someone actually took Asuka. She's just a lock to get like 27+ points. No movement on Ronda yet though; basically she costs 40 and she would only come out at #30 and win the whole thing, so...50 points. That's the only result, however likely that is.

    Can I take out Paige and Billie Kay. Switch them with Sasha and Peyton Royce?

  13. #13
    @anon you're right! That's a gutsy pick

    @Spinmaster sure.

    Asuka - 40
    Nia Jax - 23
    Ruby Riott(ttttt) - 19
    Bianca Belair - 7
    Tamina - 11

    Have went for a wee mix here.

    - Asuka for simply being a favourite

    - Ruby Riott. They seem to have pitted her against the current SD champ in recent weeks. Would make sense if she was a threat.

    - Tamina being the "immovable object". Think she'll last long into the rumble so that a good few women have to eliminate her.

    - Nia Jax will have a Kane 2001 and Roman 2014 performance. Eliminating anyone and everyone in her path. She'll have a good showing.

    - Bianca Belair, she might not last long but if used it will get a big pop from the crowd if she uses her ponytail whip on a plethora of ladies!!!

    Stephanie McMahon 25
    Asuka 40
    Lita 15
    Charlotte Flair 15

    And can I have Alundra Blayze / Madusa with my last 5?

    If the court allows I will take that Alundra Blayze for 5 and Vickie guerrero for 1?

    Just realised Santina isn't listed and hasn't been requested - have WWE made any statement that s/he won't be involved? I'd have thought that would be a good bet for some mid-match comedy

    Total points: 100, I think.

    (There better be a damn LayCool/Iconic Duo face-off. Otherwise what's the point?)

  20. #20
    I've allowed Medusa for 5 and Vicky for 1.

    I like the LayCool reunion idea! I think there will be like 5-6 former women's wrestlers so they're relatively safe bets.

    If Santina is in the match he'd better be eliminated IMMEDIATELY by everyone lol

    I don't think they'll go with the 1 second thing, that's too much of a record to blow your load on immediately. There'll be a general beat down first.

    Alright, I've avoided this so far because of math, but I want in.

    Also, I've been Late Shift hyping an Iconic Duo/LayCool faceoff from the moment the match was announced.

    I'm taking a bit of a different approach. Seeing as how Thee Riott Squadd will be a complete unit, I could see them going on one of those mid-match runs like Legacy or Straight Edge Society and stacking up some points as a unit. Absolution is in a better position to actually achieve that feat based on the nature of their respective pushes thus far, but the math works out perfectly with Thee Riott Squadd so I'm rolling with that. I'll combine them with my projected winner and the competitor I feel likely to do the largest amount of solo damage.

    Asuka - 40
    Nia Jax - 23
    Rubyy Riott - 19
    Sarahh Logann - 9
    Livv Morgann -9

    Another taker for Asuka! 40 points is apparently not scaring many people off, so maybe I under-priced her somehow...

    40 points is enough. If I'm not mistaken, she's the most pricey of anyone in either Rumble game by a bit of a margin. She's just the blatant favorite. Which may actually wind up screwing the lot of us, especially if they pull the Rousey bullshit.

    Also, it'd be cool if some of the folks doing this would click the link below and participate in another fun little game. Takes all of like 10 seconds.

    I just want LayCool back together. Quite genuinely, I think they might have been my favourite ever duo in WWE history, including the tag teams I've loved. God, their run managing Kaval on NXT was next level stuff.

    Asuka at 40 put me off just because I feel like they might not go with her here. I just feel like they're doing a fine enough build for Asuka vs Bliss with the Rumble needing to lead to it, plus I want to see Bliss keep avoiding her now that she knows Asuka can put her down.

    I'd actually be into a Bliss vs Jax feud for Mania, with Asuka vs Rousey on the card as well. Only issue is, WWE would probably put a Rousey match above Bliss vs Jax, which I feel is the wrong way round.

    Or, hey, do a four-way - Bliss vs Jax vs Asuka vs Rousey. That protects Rousey from being too exposed and brings all four of those people together in one match.

    I like the point about a fatal fourway protecting Ronda. Rumor has it that she's been training at the PC for like 4 months at this point, I wonder how she has developed. And good point about Asuka not needing to win the Rumble to continue her climb. Becky winning would be a much better story but then you're going face-vs-face, which WWE hates at WrestleMania. So...who knows?

    LayCool was pretty spectacular, I'll give you that, so I would absolutely be down for a mini-run for them in the Rumble. To then be double-eliminated by Nia lol

    To me, wrestling is therapy.
    No matter how bad my personal situation is, when I step into the ring, all my troubles disappear.

    Can I have my points now please. you completely ignored this rule for both this and the mens rumble.

    Also I assume we don't get unused points back (I have three)

    I forgot to add the winners points! It mattered less on the men's side because basically everyone had Shinsuke, but I will go re-add them.

    That actually changed the winner! Congrats to Steve!

    And anything that takes wins away from that cheery Brit is like TWO wins lol

    You have clicked it, right? Because that's honestly the best part.

    Also, upon doing some quick adding, I believe that Skul and I actually tied at 106, as he didn't get the extra 20 points credit for correctly picking Asuka.

    Right again, I'm just struggling with basic math. Congrats to Skull!

    And yeah I did click on it. It was everything I imagined it would be lol
