BTLN UPDATE - ROYAL RUMBLE TEN
Congrats Tyler! Tyler is the Royal Rumble Ten Champion! Thirty-seven guys competed for the belt! There were 10 Heavyweights (grade 10 - 12) and 27 Lightweights (grade 7-10)! The grade nines are a huge group and are a force to be reckoned with! Next year the grade nines will all be moving into the Heavyweight Division, it's going to be crazy!
The Lightweights battled for about 40 minutes before the Heavyweights started to join them in the ring. There were so many Lightweights left in the ring that it became dangerous for the Heavyweights entering the ring. Eventually, the Heavyweights eliminated James, the last of the Lightweights! Congrats James! It is big deal to outlast 26 other guys in the ring!
It looked like there were two different teams in the Heavyweight Division. Jonathan, Nate and Tyler were in one corner and Luke, Ben and Noah were in the other. Ben was injured and had to leave early. Jonathan was next out of the ring, leaving Luke and Noah in one corner and Nate and Tyler in the other. Gabe was the wild card of the final five. Gabe was the next to be eliminated. Shortly after both Luke and Noah were gone! Tyler and Nate were the final two in the ring. Tyler and Nate battled, but in the end, Nate was too exhausted to continue, giving Tyler the win!
