If you've been here for a while, you know the drill: The Royal Rumble (WWE Network/PPV, 6:00 CT) is our favorite pro graps event of the year.  It's so funny and dramatic and random, with the inevitable returns of former stars and the debuts of new ones all in the service of a usually-predictable narrative (it's Roman Reigns or a Smackdown starlet in the men's Rumble, if the rumors are accurate).

Things are a bit weird this year with the women's Rumble debuting, so we'll adjust the usual game accordingly.  If you want in the Rumble pool, put your name in the comment section.  If we get thirty, everyone gets a single number.  If we get fifteen participants, we'll draw two numbers per person for the first fifteen.  We'll draw separate numbers for the men's and women's Rumble matches, and the winner of each can select a GIA t-shirt of their choice as their prize.

Otherwise, the thread's open to talk about the weirdest, funniest, most intense, greatest night of the WWE calendar.  Thirty enter.  Twenty-nine go over the top rope.
