WWE Royal Rumble 2018 Drinking Game (Live Blog)

It’s time for more Rumble than ever before…. and the beginning of the road to Wrestlemania! It’s time for the Royal Rumble. We have 9 (announced) matches for the Royal Rumble PPV so far. Let’s Rumble?

As usual, this game is presented as a fun way to try to predict the results of an upcoming WWE PPV. We obviously do not advocate actually playing this game due to the extreme nature of the challenge presented here. In other words, don’t try this at home.

Standard Turn Heel WWE PPV drinking game rules apply for the WWE Royal Rumble 2018 Drinking Game: If you’re playing on “Easy Mode” take a sip of beer or of a mixed drink when the game calls for it. If you’re playing on “Hardcore Mode” take a full shot of hard liquor or down an entire can/bottle of beer each time the game calls for it.

ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMER: Only partake in the consumption of adult beverages if you are of legal age in your locale! (Hi, Facebook!)

WWE Royal Rumble 2018 Drinking Game – Kickoff Show

Well, it’s Sunday mid-day and we’ve got a two-hour pre-show and three matches?!… here are the general rules first:

Take a shot:

If Sam Roberts and Pete Rosenberg are both on the panel.

If the panel extends past the desk.

If they have a bigger desk to compensate.

If the Bludgeon Brothers appear

If Otunga gets relegated off the desk

Take 2 shots:

If there are more than 2 matches on the pre show that actually start.

If they parade out any legends

Take 3 shots:

If a joint Raw Talk/Talking Smack is announced post Survivor Series

Take 4 shots:

If any impromptu matches are added to the Kickoff

Kalisto, Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik vs. TJP, Gentleman Jack Gallagher & Drew Gulak

Take a shot:

For each “Lucha” chant that breaks out

If Daivari comes out with Gulak

If Gulak keeps pandering to be GM

If the crowd boos Kalisto

Take 3 shots:

If the match lasts more than 10 minutes

If we get Picture-in-Picture ad time

Switch to Newcastle Brown Ale:

Return of the King of the Cruiserweights

Prediction: This is a shame they are not going to do the Ladder match that probably should happen to crown a new Cruiserweight champion but alas this will hopefully be fun. Face team wins to get the crowd going.

Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson vs. The Revival

Take a shot:

For each “2 Sweet” chant that breaks out

If Finn comes out with the Good brothers

If “Pro Wrestler” is stated

If the crowd boos The Revival

Take 2 shots:

If GB go in just the two of them.

If Finn interferes

Take 3 shots:

If the match lasts more than 10 minutes

Prediction: This is an extension of Raw 25 and someone’s getting buried here. Not sure who I want to go over but the favorite is probably the Good Brothers. They’ll win by some odd means.

 

Bobby Roode’s United States Championship Open Challenge

Take a shot:

For each “Glorious” chant that breaks out.

Go ahead and clear out the bar:

Title changes hands on the Pre-Show

Prediction: This could go either way but since it is a pre-show match with a title, I will air on the safe side and say that Roode will retain. Genuinely have no idea who will answer the call.

WWE Royal Rumble 2018 Drinking Game

There are six main show matches so it’s a marathon not a sprint. Here’s some general rules:

Take a shot:

Each time the announcers mention “Royal Rumble”

If there is a heel turn in a backstage segment

Each time you hear the word “Over the top rope”

Prepare your joy with 2 shots:

If we are privileged to have a Royal Rumble Fashion Files

Take 3 shots:

If this show ends early

If someone debuts

If someone returns

Take 4 shots:

If this show somehow runs past 11pm Eastern

If Ladies Rumble goes longer than Men’s Rumble

For any legends shown in attendance

WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn — 2-on-1 Handicap Match for the WWE Title

Take a shot:

Each time AJ says “Kami”

Run in from KO/Sami

Each time KO banters the crowd

If the two gang up on AJ during a match

Take 2 shots:

If this is the shortest match of the night

If AJ wins

If Shane tries to meddle

Take 3 shots:

CO-CHAMPIONS

Prediction: This could get weird, I think AJ is going to hold out for the win but I think the WWE wants to play with the idea of a co-champion scenario so it would not surprising.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin (2-out-of-3-Falls Match)

Take a shot:

Each mention of “Penitentiary”

Each time “American Alpha” is stated

For each countered finisher

For each chop block

Take 2 shots:

If Uso’s wins

If interference occurs from another team

If anyone goes through a table

Take 3 shots:

If Gable and Benjamin win clean 2-0

Take 4 shots:

If Uso’s go unscathed

Prediction: Another great opportunity for the Uso’s to put over a newish team. I think that happens in the 2/3 falls match. It’ll take three but Gable and Benjamin are leaving champs tonight.

The 2018 30-Man Over-The-Top Royal Rumble Match

Take a shot:

Each elimination

Each “skinning the cat”

Take 2 shots:

Each finisher used

If any records are broken

If anyone goes the distance from 1-30

Take 4 shots:

If the match is underwhelming

Take 10 shots:

Roman wins and Philly explodes

Prediction: This match could be great or it could be drab. Roman won the last Philly Rumble, so that gives you an idea of how things could go. I do not have a true winner prediction so let’s just have fun.

Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan vs. Cesaro & Sheamus

Take a shot:

If this match ends in DQ

If The Bar wins by shenanigans

Take 4 shots:

If the Not-Shield lose due to Jason Jordan screwing up.

Take 5 shots:

If the Not-Shield wins

Take 6 shots:

If The Bar wins and Jordan turns heel

Prediction: You have to wonder when they are going to turn Jason Jordan. I think that takes place at the Royal Rumble. New champs and a new heel.

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman vs. Kane (Triple Threat Match)

Take a shot:

If Braun says “these hands”

If there is a run in

If Brock gets booed

For any pop Kane receives

If Brock wins

Take 2 shots:

If Braun wins

If the commentary table is destroyed

Take 3 shots:

If Kane wins

If Brock stacks both fighters and pins both.

Prediction: This could be the moment we all realize that Braun has taken the spot of Roman and he is the alpha with the Universal title. Probably wishful thinking but I see Braun winning by pinning Kane and leading up to Brock/Braun 2 at Mania.

The first-ever 30-Woman Over-The-Top Royal Rumble Match

Take a shot:

If there are any goofy/old superstar entrants in this Royal Rumble match

Each elimination

Take 2 shots:

If Stephanie enters the match

Each “skinning of the cat”

Take 3 shots:

If this goes more than 60 minutes

If Asuka dominates and wins

If Asuka is eliminated

If Ellsworth returns and wins the match for Carmella

Take 4 shots:

Ronda Rousey. Wrestlemania. Book it.

Prediction: Well now we know it is last. They can’t mess this up like Money in the Bank right? I hope to God they don’t. My pick is Asuka but there is the prospect of Ronda being involved, and there is some validity to it. What a match, and moment this will all be. Let’s take in some history tonight!
