I’m a big fan of fantasy sports and the contests we have here on Cageside Seats. I came up with what I think would be a fun idea for the upcoming Royal Rumble PPV. It follows similar parameters to a fantasy sports salary cap league. Each participant will have a certain amount of money at their disposal (let’s say $100,000). Each wrestler will be given a dollar value based upon their estimated impact on the Rumble. A quick example would be:
- John Cena - $30,000
- Ryback - $28,000
- Sheamus - $27,000
- Kane - $24,000
Each member has to create a team of wrestlers (maybe 5) that falls within the range of the $100,000 salary. Here is my idea for point tally:
- 1 point per elimination.
- 3 points bonus for longest in the Rumble
- 3 points bonus for most eliminations
- 5 points for Rumble Winner
This is just a quick blueprint of my idea, but I think it could work and be a lot of fun. There are some issues such as surprise entrants and what not but I think if we give a value to everyone we think will be in (if they're not confirmed then they'll be less money giving them a higher risk/reward), then it could work out. Let me know what you guys think!
