    Professional wrestling and sports entertainment fans,
    We are officially reviving the Royal Rumble BIF. Big thanks to cneville for his prior years of service. As he'll be out of town, I am serving as the interim host in 2018. Think of me as the Todd Pettingill to his Sean Mooney. Sunday January 28th WWE will give us not one but two Royal Rumble matches. The original 30 man over the top extravaganza and the first women's Rumble. With that in mind, I'm going to shake things up a bit for this version of the BIF. There will be 30 entrants in each match, so to even divide the participants we'll need at least 10 BIFers and up to 15 BIFers. The first ten are definitely in and the next 5 are in once we have 5 more confirmed. For those of you who are in, send name, address, phone, shirt size, beer prefs/hates just like last year. Entrance "fee" remains 72 oz of beer you'd like to receive.

    If we have 10 entrants you'll each get a wrestler 1-10 / 11-20 / 21-30 from each match. If we have 15 entrants, you'll receive a wrestler randomly assigned from 1-15 and another from 16-30.

    Payouts are as follows (the overall winner does not send a box, but everyone else does).

    Rumble Champion: 3 boxes (no send) / 4 boxes (no send)
    Women's Rumble Champion: 1 box / 2 boxes
    Most Eliminations (Womens): 1 box / 1 box
    Most Eliminations (Mens): 1 box / 2 boxes
    Most Eliminations (Total): 2 boxes / 3 boxes
    Longest Time in Match: 1 box for longest across both matches / 1 box for men & 1 box for women
    Best surprise entrant: 1 box from me not from the pool

    That's the payout if we have 10 participants or the payout if we have 15.

    Past entrants will have priority over new ones.

    I'll tag some folks from the WWE thread recently and past participants:

    With this BIF going on, it makes the rumble even more enjoyable watching it. I'll have MarkyMarc over for some tri tip, rooting for my guys.

    Love tri tip. I was pumped the butcher on my half cow cut it out for me last week. Not an easy find around here especially for a butcher in central Indiana. Some of the labels on those cuts of meat are hilariously old school.

    My go-to butcher uses the needle tenderizer then marinates in Burgundy pepper sauce. it's great on the grill. direct heat turning for about 25 min to medium rare.

    I'm on the fence this year because boxing up beer just doesn't move the needle for me anymore. But I am very excited about the prospect of two Rumbles, so I'll likely end up committing...

    Day 1 update:
    Marky Marc axeman9182 abecall98 danidavid are officially in
    NAPO Don say they're in
    lambandtunaphish knows he wants in but hasn't proclaimed it
    MarkIntihar might join if he remembers how easy it is to just throw cans in a bow and put a label on it

    Pretty solid start. Shouldn't be difficult to get the minimum of 10 and there is hope for 15.
