What happens when you take your passion for the Detroit Tigers and the WWE? You write some fan fiction.

(Editor’s note: This is all fiction. With the lockout and all, Allen wanted to show his respect to Detroit Tigers legends while bringing to attention his love for wrestling. There is no malice behind this piece, rather, just having fun with combining sports entertainment and baseball-Rogelio)

Let’s get ready to……wrestle! Michael Buffer will definitely charge us if we say that other word.

It’s that time of year again! WWE’s Road to WrestleMania kicks off with the Royal Rumble, and we here at Motor City Bengals are putting our very own spin on it! Yes, that’s right folks, a Detroit Tigers themed Royal Rumble using Tigers players of the past, present and future! This is all in good fun of course, and none of the perceived “violence” is meant with any true intent.

For those unfamiliar, the premise of the Royal Rumble is such – Two wrestlers start the match, and every minute and a half or so a new wrestler enters the ring until there are 30 in the ring. At any point throughout the match, a wrestler can be thrown over the top rope, and if both feet touch the floor, they are eliminated. It’s every person for themselves. The prize for winning the contest is the main event of WrestleMania challenging for the championship of their choice. The prize here in this rumble is bragging rights. Here’s the 2012 WWE Royal Rumble if you’d interested in checking one out for yourself.

I apologize if your favorite player, or a player you think should be here, isn’t. There’s always next year!

This make believe contest is taking place in old Tiger Stadium, with Mr. Ernie Harwell himself on the call.
