Don't know about you guys, but I have been SUPER pumped about the N64 Royal Rumble (Panel?) that's going to be taking place on Sunday. I just noticed on Twitter that a couple of participants(Dr. Tracksuit included) are starting to make promo videos and are calling each other out as a lead up and this is making me more excited. I've only seen 2 of these promo videos so far, but I'm hoping others pop up as well. In case you haven't seen the two videos, heres they are -

Anyone taking bets on who's going to take the Rumble? I think my money has got to be Dave Lang. The Lang Zone has to win, right? Also, if you guys come across more of these videos, I'd love to see them as well!

@bacongames: Oh man, these are all brilliant! Thanks for bringing them up, dude! Hadn't seen them prior.

Of course Dan Ryckert has the fucking Ribera jacket. Of course.

This Royal Rumble should be amazing, although I fully expect Jeff to pull a Bushwhackers. He's said he's awful at the games/thinks they're awful so I don't expect Doctor Tracksuit to last long.

Dan Ryckert's was alright, though the rest were kinda meh. If anything my favourite one, while it wasn't technically a 'promo video', was Alex's shit-talking during the latest wrestling bombastica.

D LEAZY in this piece!

Ryckert is going to be the champion. Also, I hope that the rumors are true and WWE's own Xiavier Woods shows up.

These are fucking dumb.

I love all of them.

#10 Posted by h83r (470 posts) -

Yes! I wholeheartedly believe that Dave Lang will be the victor! I refuse to live in a world where The Lang Zone doesn't come out victorious!

#14 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11493 posts) -

Dr. Tracksuit is the best promo.

#15 Posted by JackBurt0n (75 posts) -

These are fantastic. I'm not sure if Dan's or Lang's is the best.

#16 Posted by cooljammer00 (2108 posts) -

Dan Ryckert deserves to lose for the Ribera jacket alone. That's for wrestlers only, not for poser marks who couldn't wrestle their way out of a paper bag. I bet he calls wrestlers by their real names, too.

Also, I was thinking about which entrant could co-opt the "Yes!" chants. It sorta has to be "Jeff! Jeff! Jeff!", right? Either Gerstmann or Green?

#17 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1681 posts) -

D Leazy 4 lyfe. He just has to make sure he's wearing his proper eye-wear.

#18 Edited by johncallahan (647 posts) -

These are all incredibly dumb. These are all the best. Don't know who has my favorite. Three-way battle between Lang, Jeff, and Ryckert.

#19 Posted by h83r (470 posts) -

I know at least Rich Gallup has made a promo and sent it over to the Harmonix guys. I can only hope there are many, many more that will come to light over the next few days.

Speaking of these great promos, is the panel going to be streamed and if so, what time?

Whoever wins you just know they are going to be fueled by pwnmeal.

Yeah, it'll be on Sunday at 10:30am EST(I believe) on the PAX2 twitch page. It should be on the giant bomb chat page as well.

That is one seedy ass alley Jeff found to cut that promo.

@citizencoffeecake: I heard Alex talking at the meetup tonight... That is directly behind his apartment!

Dan Ryckert is my pick. I heard he might be a Paul Heyman guy.

Please tell me there are N64 Royal Rumble Porno videos.

This has the psychological effect of an old Jake the Snake promo.

#33 Edited by WulfBane (197 posts) -

Because it was basically a "end of Raw before the Royal Rumble" moment, go to the end of the PAX panel from 2:35:00 and just watch to the end. (There was some promo-aspects with Jeff Hayman talking about his client Dr. Tracksuit earlier in the Q&A, but yeah...)

Just got done watching the panel. Oh. My. God. Was that real life?! Did that really happen?! I don't even know what to expect from tomorrow's actual Rumble. Complete insanity!!

#36 Posted by sub_o (914 posts) -

Oh god, topless Jeff Green.

#37 Posted by ottoman673 (619 posts) -

...you know what, Jeff Green is gonna win this shit tomorrow. He's gonna fight for what's right.

Dan Ryckert's promo was fucking great. Laughed uncontrollably.

I'm voting for John Drake because that muthafucker is VICIOUS AND HOPPED UP ON DIET COKE!

#40 Posted by Splodge (2043 posts) -

ANyone know of an archive where i cant watch the royal rumble panel / whatever it was?

#41 Posted by h83r (470 posts) -

As expected, it was absolutely AMAZING! Crazy stuff happened! This has to be a thing from now on, right? It has to keep going con after con in at least some capacity, right?

For those that missed it, the archive isn't up on Twitch yet, but I'm sure it'll show up here soon-ish(hopefully?).

Don't forget Alex's one- hour-twenty-minute promo, complete with Fisher Price belt on the shoulder.
