2015 WWE Royal Rumble Challenge Entry Order

The 2015 Royal Rumble challenge Entry Order has been set. We have 25 competitors set and so there are 5 lucky souls that ended up getting 2 numbers in the match.

I used Random.org to generate the order of entry list. The methodology I used is probably more complicated than I needed to make it but it was random and ensured every person had as good a chance as everyone else to end up with two numbers.

The order of entry is blow the jump. If the wrestler that comes out at your number wins the match, you win the challenge.

Still Time to Enter the 2015 Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble Challenge

The 2015 WWE Royal Rumble is on Sunday. There is still time to enter the 2015 Combat Hooligans.net Royal Rumble challenge.

It is simple. Tomorrow, a random number drawing will take place. If you get, for example, the #21 and the person who enters the Royal Rumble on Sunday at #21 wins, then you win the challenge.

Fast, simple, free. Second place goes to the person who has the entry that is responsible for most eliminations.

We have 15 entries thus far. If we get no more, each person will get two numbers. If we get thirty, each person will get one number. Between 15 and 30 and there will be random drawings to see the lucky people that get two numbers. All numbers will be posted on this site after the drawing.

How do you enter the challenge?

Get in on the 2015 Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble Pool

The 2015 WWE Royal Rumble is quickly approaching and as a result, it is time again for the Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble pool.

What is the Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble pool? The Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble pool allows for 30 players. Each is asigned a number by random and that number matches the wrestler who enters that spot in the Royal Rumble. As an example, last year I was assigned the number 1 and the number one participant in the Royal Rumble was CM Punk. So had Punk won the Royal Rumble, I would have won the pool.

Pop-Quiz Time! Jon Jones Or Justin Bieber?

1.) Which one is the UFC Light-Heavyweight champion?

2.) Which one is a world-famous singer/songwriter?

(I know what you’re thinking … This is too easy.)

3.) Which one of these role models, despite being a self-avowed Christian and only in his twenties, has a recent past scattered with such moral behavior as a public skirmish (or two), a DUI arrest (which included a vehicle crash), and drug use?

(Now, all Jones needs is to buy himself a plane.)

2014 Year in Review: Audiobooks I read

I haven’t plugged Audiobook Empire in awhile now, so it is time.

This post: http://audiobookempire.com/2015/01/01/2014-year-in-review-audiobooks/ contains all of the stastical date I compiled in 2014 concerning the audiobooks I read.

Pretty simple.

Wrestle Kingdom 9 is Good for the Wrestling Fan’s Soul

When Global Force Wrestling announced that they would be spearheading an English Language version of the annual New Japan Pro Wrestling Jan. 4 show at the Tokyo Dome, I was quite excited.

I’ve been casually following the NJPW product for years by listening to the Observer Radio shows after big events. The language barrier is an issue for me being visually impaired, I need the commentary to give me a sense of the action so that’s why I never ordered online.

What is Your State the Worst at?

You can find out at this link:

http://www.thrillist.com/travel/nation/what-every-us-state-is-the-worst-at

My home state of South Dakota is worst at salaries, having the lowest paid teachers in the country. Missing from that is the fact that we do well in the area of having a low cost of living. This is not a defense, our teachers should be piad more.

So What was That?

So some of you might have seen a post on this site called the Danger Daily News. You might have even read it and been a little shocked, confused or offended. You will also probably also notice that the Danger Daily News has since been taken off of the website. This post right now is meant to explain what that was all about and how a breakdown in communication is to blame.

UFC App added to Apple TV

Today is a day I have been waiting for since the launch of UFC Fight Pass earlier this year. A UFC Fight Pass App has been <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2014/12/09/apple-tv-ufc-scene-fusion-dailymotion/" TARGET="_blank">added to the Apple TV</a>.

UFC.TV offers access to a variety of Ultimate Fighting Championship content, including free and paid video. Users can subscribe to the service’s Fight Pass premium offering with a 6-month membership priced at $54.99 or a 12-month membership at $99.99.

<a href="http://variety.com/2014/digital/news/ioc-to-launch-year-round-olympics-internet-tv-channel-1201374451/" TARGET="_blank">IOC to Launch Year-Round Olympics Internet TV Channel</a>.

The International Olympic Committee plans to launch an over-the-top digital TV channel as early as 2015, which will be stocked with archive material and some international sports coverage.
The OTT Olympics channel got the go-ahead as part of the 96-member IOC’s unanimous approval Monday of 40 new proposals, which among other things include new bidding procedures that would let cities or neighboring countries make joint bids to host the Olympic Games.

Oh good, I was thinking that I had too much time on my hands and really needed another way to fill it.
