However it is only entitled to the first 500 signups, capped at 300 males and 200 females. The contestants have to be 18 years and above of age.
This concept would be done in 3 sets. Firstly, they would be split into 10 random groups and 50 participants would enter a Royal Rumble. They would have to prevent a piece of cloth that’s attached to their body from being taken off. The remaining 2 would be the victor for round 1. This means there would be 20 people advancing to round 2.
The second round would be the same but only 2 individuals will proceed.
The final round would be a standard 3 count wrestling, in which the person who is pinned down for 3 seconds wins.
