What's the Royal Rumble Game?
It isn't Royal Rumble season until the official details for my annual Royal Rumble Game are released, and thus here we are! It's actually quite crazy to think that it was five years ago this month that I started doing the Royal Rumble Game, and the turnout every year has only grown exponentially since then. Here's to another five years and many more! Plus, I'll be in attendance for this year's Royal Rumble event for the first time ever, making me extremely excited for this upcoming installment!
By this point, everyone should be fairly familiar with the rules of the Royal Rumble (considering it's usually the same people who throw their name in the hat every year), but for those who are unfamiliar with the concept, here have been the rules in the past: You pick a number 1-30. Each entry is limited to one person (you can still play unofficially if you'd like), and it's first come, first serve. The designated sign-up date and time is below. Whoever enters at your number in the Royal Rumble Game will be your "favorite" wrestler for the next year. I said that lightheartedly because you don't have to stick to that if you don't want to, but it's more fun if you do.
All of that will remain the same this year... except that with a women's Royal Rumble happening in addition to the men's, there will be 60 available spots in total in the 2018 Royal Rumble Game! You are still limited to only one spot, but when you choose a number 1-30, please specify whether it's for the men's or women's Rumble. No two people can choose the same spot in either Rumble. Therefore, there will be two winners for the first time ever!
