The tenth event in the Cageside Seats Pay-Per-View Pick 'Em Game is upon us. It's WWE Royal Rumble 2013 and it goes down this Sun., Jan. 27, 2013, from the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
The game is simple. We list the match-ups in this post, you pick who you think is going to win, post it in the comments section of this thread, and we'll tally the standings, which will be posted the Monday following the event. For each correct prediction of the undercard matches, you get one point and for correctly predicting the main event (whichever match goes on last), you get two points.
This continues for every WWE and TNA PPV event until the end of the season, which culminates just before SummerSlam 2013, when the points will be added and a winner crowned. Your prize will be The Big Gold Belt, so make your picks count, folks.
NOTE: There are special bonus points available for this event, seeing as the Royal Rumble match is such a big deal. We talked about it earlier this week (here) and here's what you'll need to pick and the bonus points available to you:
Winner - 20 points
Last Eliminated - 5 points
Iron Man - 10 points
Quickest Out - 5 points
Most Eliminations - 10 points
Now, onto the line-up for Royal Rumble:

This post will stay in the Cover (that thing at the top of the front page with the featured stories of the day) until Saturday night to allow ample time for everyone to get their picks in. The cutoff is midnight CT. Make your predictions for each match in the comments section below.
