Awards Moderator HarmonicGenerator Posted December 31, 2016 Awards Moderator Share Posted December 31, 2016 The Royal Rumble's round the corner - January 29th - so it's time to predict the future and tell us who you want surprising you surprisingly with a surprise Rumble appearance. Last year gave us the debut of AJ Styles and the return from injury/NXT call up of Sami Zayn. Cuthbert Lilly, Saba Simba and Bob Carolgees sadly did not appear. What do you have to do? Just pick up to or around 3 people you want to turn up unexpectedly in the Rumble! You can post a picture to add to your post if you want, but you don't have to. It's also nice if you can run down how you think they'll do in the match, what will happen to them, and why you want them to appear. You don't have to, but it's more fun to read than a plain list of names. The rules: - You can have anyone, wrestler or non-wrestler, any gender, dead or alive, real or fictional. Only pick someone dead or fictional if you're really confident they'll show up. - You can't have anyone currently active on the main WWE rosters unless you change their gimmick, like last year's Star Wars inspired Kylo Reigns, or they're currently on long-term injury. - Only the specific gimmick you state will count. So if you said Earthquake, but Golga shows up, it won't count. - NXT people are fine unless they announce their entry beforehand, but, GLORIOUS as they may be, it's a bit boring to pick NXT people. - Part-timer picks are at my discretion. For example, Triple H didn't count last year. - DON'T BE BORING. This is the most important rule. The point is to come up with something fun rather than trying to be right. You don't actually win anything for a correct prediction except the gift/curse of knowing events before they happen. - You can't have the Big Boss Man. It's pretty clear that as a Hall Of Famer, this is his year. Deadline's the weekend of the Rumble - four weeks from time of this post. Any posts after the 27th won't count! So let's go for it!

Kalisto is in the ring, so are Sin Cara and Gran Metalik. It's the Lucha Libre section of the Rumble! Just like in 1997, we need one big lucha name from times gone by to complete the quartet. The countdown starts... the music hits... It's ESSA RIOS! He's back! He takes out Metalik with his bouncy bouncy springy jumpy arm drag, but the Lucha Dragons reunite to beat him down. But that's not the only reunion happening tonight... LITA pelts down from the Kickoff Panel to save her former partner, Litacanranas the Dragons out of the way, and 2000's most dynamic duo is back together! Then she eliminates him in an act of villainous treachery. 2) Forward to the 20ish mark. People are sitting on their hands a little, waiting for Goldberg or Lesnar to come out. They don't get them. Instead they get... THE BARBARIAN. He saw Tatanka fucking about in the battle royal at WrestleMania last year and thinks, that could be me. What better way to prove himself than a showing in the Rumble? He singlehandedly smashes Slater and Rhyno before Roman Reigns eliminates Barbar to cement his heel turn. 3) We've had 29 entrants. Only one to go. The final spot is taken by... Nobody would expect it. --- Your turn! Let's make this the best Rumble since the last good one!
