The 2018 pool is still ongoing, and will end when the 2019 Royal Rumble starts, whereby the 2019 pool will begin. On that note, here are the rules and runners for the 2018 pool. Rules for 2019:

There were very few releases in 2018, but I have a good feeling that, with so many other companies now offering contracts and opportunities, we will see wrestlers requesting their releases, or allowing their contracts to run down. And someone always gets fired.

Pick 12 names from the current Raw, SmackDown, 205 Live, NXT or NXT UK rosters (with at least three coming from NXT) and rank them from your 15 point pick to your 1 point pick. The rosters will be posted shortly, and are taken from, with a few adjustments to account for recent storyline changes. Anyone from any of the wrestler lists can be included and should be ranked from 12 (most likely to be released) to 1 (least likely to be released). At least TWO of your 12 wrestlers must be listed in the NXT or NXT UK rosters. In addition, pick three non-wrestlers (each worth 4 points.)

You can use this format:
12 pts - 
11 pts - 
10 pts - 
9 pts - 
8 pts - 
7 pts - 
6 pts - 
5 pts - 
4 pts - 
3 pts - 
2 pts - 
1 pt - 
Non wrestler #1:
Non wrestler #2:
Non wrestler #3:

Additional scoring:

+5 points if any of your picks, having been released, appear on television or a televised event for Impact, ROH, MLW or AEW
-5 points if your NXT pick is drafted to the main roster of Raw (including 205 Live) or Smackdown (one-off appearances do not count)
+5 points if your pick dies
-5 points if your pick wins the WWE World or Universal titles, or the Raw or Smackdown women's titles
+5 points if any of your picks, having been released, win a title in Impact, ROH, MLW or AEW
+10 points if your pick wins the NWA World Title
+2 for the first (or first group) of future endeavors

double points for any releases in January 2020.

Deadline is the start of the 2019 Royal Rumble PPV, and the pool runs until the start of the 2020 Royal Rumble PPV.
