    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!

    Nikki Cross- 10

    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!!!

    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

  18. #18
    Team Canada/Japan

    Trish Stratus - 18
    Natalya - 15
    Candice LeRae - 7
    Asuka - 40
    Kairi Sane - 15

    Total - 95

    Michelle McCool - 14
    Peyton Royce - 12
    Billie Kay - 11
    Layla - 10
    Molly Holly - 8

    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.
