Yes, it's nearly time. This Sunday a new era within the AWF will begin. The Archive Wrestling Federation Championship will be decided in the 30 man Royal Rumble match.

But who's your pick? Yes, this is the part where you get to show that you've second-guessed the bookers. This is the part where you get to show just how savvy/jaded you are when it comes to the wrestling biz.

Pick your winners! The person with the most correct wins a fabulous prize*

Is there a list of who is in the Rumble? Or is it a suprise? Also are they some not listed matches or is that all?

My picks:

Y3B & NMat

TC

HBK

Lock and Vin Ghoastal

Judge Death

Like Strife said, it seems short for a PPV...but there's a Rumble, so appearances can be deceptive. Like a...deceptive thing.

Anyway, pickeths:

I'd say Sixswitch to win the rumble...though it's a difficult choice between him and Morpheus, and frankly, given their fairly recent title reigns, I'm not too hopeful about either.

Serial Slackaz - Nmat's still inactive (saying that with as much respect as possible, don't yell at me, etc), and the Igz/D-Ex team deserves something better than the world's shortest tag-title reign ever. Ignavus is paying me to say this...oops.

Divebomb - TC, also, is inactive. And I like face Dbomb.

HeartBrend Kid - No offense to Rav, but I just think he's awesome.

V3 & The Lock - Actually, this one has 'upset' written all over it, IMO. It's simply that, from the outset, two veterans versus someone who's still a bit below them and Captain Anonymous seems like a squash match. But, y'know...he's the Mid-Card Messiah, or whatever it is. Anything can happen.

Baxter - For no reason beyond two simple facts: 1) I hate voting for myself, and 2) I love the whole haiku thing.

The Royal Rumble

Ah, shoot. I have no idea really. Like JD, I'd like to see Sixswitch or Morpheus win. Both their reigns were cut way too short.

Tag Team Championship: Um, tough call. Blaster is good at posting, but so is D-Ex... and after all I do love me. I'd like to see us win, if only for some consistency in the title scene.... and I'm a greedly little schmo

Divebomb vs. TC: TC hasn't posted much. If at all. And Dbomb kicks ass. Dbomb all the way baby!

The HeartBrend Kid vs. Big Daddy Rav: I'm goin with JD again (this is scary... I don't like this game anymore). HBK kicks ass.

Xille & ?? vs. Vin Ghostal & The Lock: Yay! I can disagree with him. I put my misguided faith in the opium of the masses, the midcard miracle, the man I'd love to punch in the face - X and mystery man.

JD vs. Baxter: Baxter's still new. Then again, so am I - sorta. New people lose, I guess seems to be the rule. They are both top notch posters, tough, but I still gotta go with the Judge. He isn't paying me to say this, I just have a crush on him. oops

Vin Ghostal
2005-01-25, 10:03 PM
The Royal Rumble
30 Men; One Winner; A New Champion

This one's obviously the most difficult to call. The members of Team AWF have been on a real roll lately (Summers, HBK, Viewfind, Morpheus, and Sixswitch), so one of them seems like the best choice. That said, The Lock could be a real dark horse here...his tag match earlier in the night might wear him out. Same goes for yours truly and for Xille. I'm betting that Ravage, HBK, Divebomb, and T.C. will wear each other out enough that they won't contend...with the stipulations, I'd be surprised if anyone in the tag match MADE it to the ring...my money has to be on Morpheus.

Tag Team Championship - No Count Out, No Disqualification
The Serial Slackaz (c) vs. Y3B & The Mat Man

In a technical match, I'd pick Blaster and Mat in a second, due to their experience and success in big-time matches as singles competitors. Both teams are relatively new, but I have to give the edge to the Slackaz, if not because they're more talented, then because they've just shown me something in their little time together.

Divebomb vs. TC

Both guys are great posters and great characters. It's a pick-em, really. I'm going with Divebomb.

The HeartBrend Kid vs. Big Daddy Rav

HBK sucks harder than Paris Hilton, and Rav has proven that he can win in big match situations in the past, but it's hard to pick against Brend here. Go with Brend.

Xille & ?? vs. Vin Ghostal & The Lock

Come on, can I really bet against myself and The Lock, two of the biggest stars in AWF history? To be honest, I'm a little worried about whom Xille might pull out of the woodwork for this match, but with me and Lock as a team, he could call up freakin' Jesus Christ from OVW and they still wouldn't do it. Lock and Yours Truly.

Baxter vs. Judge Death

Another tough match to call. I like both these guys, and I think they've both been great additions to the forum and the roster. I'll go with Baxter, but only by a hair.

Sixswitch
2005-01-25, 11:45 PM
The Rumble

I've gotta go with Morpheus. With HBK seeming to be about to embark on a feud with Skywarp, it doesn't make sense to give the title to either of these guys. The feud doesn't need it.

Viewfind to have unfinished business with the remnants of the GPA.

I never pick myself on principle, although since I don't have any obvious feud or means of pushing any storylines forwards at the moment, I don't see why the title should go to the Double S this time.

Besides, no one who's taking part in the earlier matches on the card is going to win the thing, which leaves Skywarp or The Game as the only other choices. And The Game is holding the IC title at the moment, and like I said before, Skywarp doesn't need the title if his feud with HBK is going to play out like I expect.

Winner: Morpheus

Tag Championship Match

Blaster's only just returned to the AWF, and his teaming with NMat's a new thing. I like the Serial Slackerz... In theory, with a name like that, there's no way they should be winning matches, but they somehow pull it off. And I've a feeling they'll do it this time too.

Winners: The Serial Slackerz

Divebomb Vs TC

Looking at the bigger picture, Divebomb's still fresh off his Wargames 'victory'. I've a feeling though that this feud is going to go beyond the old GPA now, and is set to carry on. So I think TC will win by DQ to prolong the feud.

Winner: TC

HBK Vs Ravage

I think this one will put an end to this feud, to enable HBK to go after Skywarp. I can see Skywarp interference costing HBK the match, giving Ravage the victory. This'll let them both go onto new things.

Winner: Ravage

Xille and ??? Vs Ghostal and The Lock

A straight win here will go a long way to giving Lock and thus Murder Inc a stronger position in the AWF, so my head says to go for that pair. But my instinct says that Xille will pull it off, either through a gutsy performance, or through a real coup with regards to his mystery partner.

Winner: Xille and ???

Baxter Vs Judge Death

This one really could go either way. Both are quite new to the AWF, and both seem to be shaping up decently. Flip a coin and pick one.

Winner: Baxter

saying im inactive...pffft.

Rumble:
Hard to call, many a great competitor in it. i'd have to say Morpheus though

Tag Titles:
Slackaz

TC v Divebomb
Hard to say, both good characters, but Dive seems to be on the roll...I'm still gonna win though.

HBK v Ravage
Tough call but I figure that Rav is gonna pull this one out on the peroxide kid

Xille & ??? v Ghostal & Lock
Close to call because of the unknown factor, but I'm gonna say Ghostal and Locky

Baxter v Judge Death
Two new guys, seemingly even matchup...so im gonna guess Baxter.

I will go with TC.

The HeartBrend Kid vs. Big Daddy Rav

HBK

Xille & ?? vs. Vin Ghostal & The Lock

?? is the new guy right? Ghost and Lock, by a long shot. We're talking about a guy Ghostal carried and one of the best guys the AWF has ever seen.

As long as it's not Y3B, then I'm happy. But seriously? I give it to Viewfind.

Tag Team Championship - No Count Out, No Disqualification
The Serial Slackaz (c) vs. Y3B & The Mat Man

The Serial Slackaz over going over faster than the Ultimate Warrior over the Honky Tonk Man.

Divebomb vs. TC

Tough call. It's going to be a good match either way but I'm giving this to Divebomb with some help from Viewfind or P?

The HeartBrend Kid vs. Big Daddy Rav

This will be when I have my bathroom break.

Xille & ?? vs. Vin Ghostal & The Lock

Too many egos, such little time. I'm not sure. It all depends on who Xille's partner is but this feud need to continue so I'll give to Ghostal and Lock.

Special Bonus Match! Announced... uhm, now, really!
Baxter vs. Judge Death

Well, One does some decent poetry while the other wouldn't know the dictionary if someone beat him with it. I hope it's Baxter just so I don't need to read another Judge Death promo. Those things hurt my eyes and my brain. I love the character but I get a headache when I read those things.

The HeartBrend Kid vs. Big Daddy Rav

I love hosses...I am tempted to pick Rav. So what the heck, RAVAGE wins it by a close one

Xille & ?? vs. Vin Ghostal & The Lock

I love the underdogs so I pick Xille

I think it could really be anyone this year. Will there be alliances like TC and BDR had that allowed them to be co-winners of the AWF's last big battle royal. Game,Divebomb, View, Sky, HBK, Six, Y3B, Morphious, Auros, Xille, anyone and everyone is a continder I can't wait to read it.

Tag Team Championship - No Count Out, No Disqualification
The Serial Slackaz (c) vs. Y3B & The Mat Man
Hmm Y3b just barely came back so I am going to say Serial Slackza due to Y3b's ring rust.

Divebomb vs. TC
TC has the drive and the hatred not saying this just because he's my partner either.

The HeartBrend Kid vs. Big Daddy Rav
Hehe, BDR I mean duh! HBK was so 2002.

Xille & ?? vs. Vin Ghostal & The Lock
Xille has a ton of fight in him. So I think it's going to be Xille and ??.

Hmm me thinks Baxter on this one.

30 Men; One Winner; A New Champion

There is a lot of talent involved in the rumble match and it's very hard to predict who will come out at the top. Will HBK fulfill his promise and take the AWF title? Will Sixswitch get retribution for his too short title reign and once more show why he is the most exciting AWF superstar? Or maybe the whole F'n show will go all the F'n way and bring the title back to the now defunct what was once called GPA.

But no. Even with such great candidates, I cannot ignore the possibility of a surprise entrant. Someone that hasn't been around for some time, but will make a comeback at Edge of Survival and take the title. Yes, the winner, and the new AWF Champion is, Brawn!!


Tag Team Championship - No Count Out, No Disqualification
The Serial Slackaz (c) vs. Y3B & The Mat Man

I smell a swerve. The Slackaz have been getting along quite nicely and the Mat Man hasn't bee naround lately. Something's up.

The King of All Men (that would include me also, then) will ont have a chance as the Mat Man reveales his secret plan, costs Y3B the match and joins his adversarys to create the Mariel Mackaz!

The winners: The Serial Slackaz


Divebomb vs. TC

Let's analyze this scientifically. TC has been in three War Games -matches, losing all of them. Divebomb has been in one, losing in it. That would give Divebomb a clear advantage in the match. And even though TC is a veteran in the game, even he can't overcome those odds.

Winner: Divebomb


The HeartBrend Kid vs. Big Daddy Rav

HBK vs. BDR. The battle of the acronymes. There is only one clear way to sort out the winner.

H>B, B<D K<R.

The winner: Ravage (2-1)


Xille & ?? vs. Vin Ghostal & The Lock

This just in: The Rock has refused a spot at Wrestlemania. And one almost immediately starts to think, why would the Rock do that? Because he got a better offer from the second biggest wrestling federation in the States (eat that TNA!). The Camden Crusader and the Aussie Annihilator think they have the match won but that will soon change as Xille reveals that his surprise partner is none other than the Rock!!

Of course with Xille vs. Ghostal almost set in stone at AM this will also naturally lead to a Rock vs. Lock match in the same night. And we all know that the Rock likes to put other people over nowadays. Lock's in for a helluva push. But to keep the feuds going, the faces will take this one.

Winners: Xille & The Rock

OOC: Your just huffy you lost one :p

Royal Rumble

This is a toughy, while I'd like to agree with RS logic (come on, I had to wear a thong ...) I'd thrown it up between DB, TC, BDR and Morpheus.

Of course, at the end Batman and Robin are going to swing down from the roof and steal the title.

Tag Team Match

D-Ex deserves to hold onto this one for a little bit longer. Besides Mat Man hasn't been around in a while.

Winner - Serial Slackerz

Divebomb Vs TC

Another tough one, both of them have done a good job lately in the AWF, but I'm siding with Divebomb on this one.

Winner - Divebomb

HBK Vs BDR

If Ravage has any chance of winning the rumble he has to win this first ... if he doesn't then he'll be tired.

Winner - HBK

Xille & ??? Vs Lock and Vin Ghosta

Xille, the kids dynamite. He'll win, whoever he tags up with.

Winner - Xille & ???

Baxter Vs Judge Death

The Bugman will fly ... he might get squashed, but me thinks he'll pull through.

Winner - Baxter.

After all that I realised that Morpheus is the only out of my 4 thats not in a prior match. We'll have to see if that affects him.
