It's back!





Sixty film music composers will enter!



Only one will win!




Coinciding with World Wrestling Entertainment's annual event, this interactive pro wrestling forum game will determine which of our beloved composers has the strength, the smarts and the skills to outlast fifty-nine other competitors to become this year's Royal Rumble champion.


The rules are very similar to an actual Rumble match.


Two composers will start the match. Every eight hours (real time), a new composer will enter the ring. Order of appearance will be random. Each composer will try to eliminate his opponents by throwing them over the top rope out of the ring. Once eliminated, that person's night is finished and he cannot re-enter the match.

The last composer remaining after all sixty have entered will be crowned the 2011 Royal Rumble champion and will be awarded a golden trophy.










Here's how to play the game.


Any SST member at any time can vote for a composer to be eliminated. Votes stay with a composer until they win or are eliminated. When a composer's vote count reaches ten, he will be eliminated from the match.


After you place a vote, you must wait a period of four hours before you can vote again. This will give other people a chance to get in on the action.


You are allowed to vote for the same composer more than once, but no more than five times.













The match events will be covered by play-by-play announcer Johnny_Cage and special guest color commentator Joe Hisaishi (Last year's Rumble winner.)



The event will begin this Friday, January 7th, at 5:00 pm Eastern U.S. time, live on pay-per-view from the SST Arena (right here in this thread). Call your local cable or satellite provider to order.


Just kidding. This event is free for everyone to participate in. Spread the word! Don't miss this once-a-year battle for ultimate supremacy! We'll see you this Friday!

Just to make sure I'm understanding right, you vote for who you don't want to win?

THIS JUST IN:




Official press release from SSTWF Chairman Vinnie Maxwell:




Early injury reports have left this year's roster for the 2011 Royal Rumble short-handed. To compensate for the situation and to help make our event more interactive, the Board of Directors have agreed to offer write-in ballots for SST forum members. On these ballots, fans have an opportunity to select up to five composer names on a "wish list". These names will be under consideration to participate in the Rumble event as a "Wild Card" composer.

The top Wild Card votes will be called up from the minor leagues and invited into this year's Rumble.



To participate in the Wild Card voting, simply fill out the included form and PM your selections to Johnny_Cage, who will forward all incoming submissions to the Board of Directors for review.


A big thank you to all our fans. We look forward to seeing you this Friday for the Royal Rumble!








Wild Card:



Composer #1: ______________


Composer #2: ______________


Composer #3: ______________


Composer #4: ______________


Composer #5: ______________

Okay, this is intriguing, but I'm not sure I get it. Who is eligible to be a wild card? And who's injured? And can we nominate the dead?

LOL. You're reading too much into it. I'm only trying to keep the role-playing vibe going. Just choose five composers you'd like to see in the Rumble, if you feel like it. Doesn't matter who it is.

Press Release from SSTWF Chairman Vinnie Maxwell:



I'd like to thank all of our loyal fans for voting for their favorite composers in the Wild Card event. While we at the SSTWF pride ourselves in delivering a show featuring the best of the best film music composers beating each other to a pulp for your entertainment pleasure, we also recognize that the inclusion of a few underdogs were necessary to complete the circle.

This year's Rumble participants come from a wide range of backgrounds and all have works under their belts that they should be proud of. We look forward to crowning a new champion this Friday.

Good Fight and Good Night!

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome.......... Joe Hisaishi!



*The crowd erupts into applause as Hisaishi walks down the entrance ramp towards the announce table.*




Johnny_Cage: Welcome to the SST Royal Rumble folks! I'm Johnny Cage, soon to be joined by Joe Hisaishi. Special thanks to Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment for allowing us to borrow their intro video. Hopefully, we'll have one of our own for next year. The crowd is ready! The fans at home watching us via SST satellite are ready! I'm ready! This is the event we've all been waiting for. All the legendary film music composers past and present are under one roof to prove themselves as the best in the business. And...oh, just a moment folks. Joe is here. Here Joe, take this headset. Testing 1, 2, 3. Joe, can you hear me?

Joe Hisaishi: Loud and clear, Johnny.

Cage: Pleasure to have you here, Joe.

Hisaishi: I couldn't be more excited. And I'd to thank all of these SST fans for that heroes welcome I received on the way in.

Cage: I must say Joe, I am very impressed with your English speaking abilities. I had no idea you were bilingual.

Hisaishi: Well, what can I say Johnny? I'm just an amazing person.

Cage: No argument there. Now let's analyze this upcoming match. The Tale of the Tape as they like to call it. Last year's Rumble had some very memorable encounters. The one that stayed strongest in my memory had to have been the Newman Brothers. Things are bound to get interesting if they end up meeting in the ring again.

Hisaishi: You want to talk about sibling rivalry. David was clearly upset over living in his brother Thomas' shadow all his life. I was so happy to see Thomas get the beating he had coming to him all these years.

Cage: What are you talking about?

Hisaishi: You know exactly what I'm talking about. Thomas gets to work on all the big blockbuster films like American Beauty while David had to watch Billy Zane in purple spandex.

Cage: That wasn't even in the same year!

Hisaishi: David Newman has been treated unfairly his entire life.

Cage: And that's Thomas' fault?

Hisaishi: Absolutely. Thomas is as selfish as they come.

Cage: I can't agree with that. And as far as I'm concerned, David has handled himself very immaturely.

Hisaishi: Nonsense. David is coming into his own. I couldn't be more proud of him.

Cage: Let's talk about Remote Control productions. As we all know, Hans Zimmer has a lot of influence over the world of film scoring. He has helped launch the careers of several others, most of them will be in the Rumble. Last year, many of Zimmer's pupils stayed loyal to him. Others however, stayed with the "every man for himself" mantra that the Rumble is all about. Especially John Powell, the man who eliminated Hans Zimmer from the match last year.

Hisaishi: Hans Zimmer made John Powell. If it wasn't for Hans, John would still be living in the alley eating garbage.

Cage: That is ridiculous. Where do you come up with this stuff?

Hisaishi: And that was the thanks he got? Getting backstabbed like that? I hope Zimmer and his cronies get a chance to bash Powell's face in. That traitor deserves it.

Cage: Why do you have such an attitude problem?

Hisaishi: I'm just calling it as I see it. I expect you to do the same.

Cage: Oh, don't worry about me. I have a feeling you'll be the one that needs to be kept in line.

Hisaishi: Yeah right.

Cage: This year, the SSTWF fans were given the opportunity to vote for their own favorites. A few lesser known but very capable group of composers have joined as "Wild Card" participants.

Hisaishi: One of the Wild Card competitors is rising star Bear McCreary. With two highly successful television shows already on his resume, Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead, this guy has some serious potential. A win here tonight would be huge for him.

Cage: We finally agree on something. We're just about ready to start. Let's go to our ring announcer, Michael Buffer.











Michael Buffer: And now.....introducing the competitor that drew number one!






Entrant #1: Hans Zimmer!





Hisaishi: Wait just a minute. Are you kidding me? You mean to tell me that Hans Zimmer drew number one, the worst possible number to have, twice in back-to-back years?

Cage: As astounding as it may be, that is exactly what happened.

Hisaishi: I thought the entrance order was supposed to be random!

Cage: It is random. Everyone drew their own numbers yesterday.

Hisaishi: I don't believe this. There has to be some kind of conspiracy going on. Nobody has that kind of bad luck!

Cage: Believe what you want, Joe. The only fact here is that Hans Zimmer is once again the first man to enter the Rumble. He'll need all the luck in the world to win this one.






Michael Buffer: And now..........the competitor that drew number two!







Entrant #2: Ennio Morricone!






Hisaishi: And Zimmer is not starting off easy. He's got some serious competition in the form of Ennio Morricone. Five-time Academy Award Nominee. Over five hundred works credited to his name. A future Hall of Famer.

Cage: There goes the bell! The match is underway!

With all due respect to molossus's screenname:

Hans Zimmer!

I haven't looked, but I'm fairly sure this was my first vote last time.

BTW, Johnny_Cage, your commitment and enthusiasm levels ASTOUND me. Good show!
