Everton will host a WWE-style Royal Rumble match at Goodison Park, involving 30 management candidates to determine their next boss, Paddy Power News can reveal.
Clearly Toffees owner Farhad Moshiri sees the over-the-top rope spectacle as the most logical way to solve the club’s current managerial vacancy.
The pay-per-view event will be available on WWE Network on Sunday morning at 1:00 AM.
Interim manager Duncan Ferguson will be the first entrant to the ring with Portuguese interviewee Vitor Pereira joining him at number 2.
Ferguson, who goes by the ring name “Duncan Disorderly,” told Paddy Power News that he is looking forward to the fight.
“Ah can’t wait, man.”
“What you goin’ tae dae brother, when the most powerful arms in the world and Duncanmania are running rampant?” the 50-year-old growled as he bowed his oily 24-inch pythons.
Other participants in the Rumble include Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard, Sam Allardyce, Steve Bruce, Tony Bellew, Sylvester Stallone, Terry Funk and Bushwhacker Luke.
Meanwhile, a ‘Tables, Ladders & Chairs’ match between new Watford boss Roy Hodgson and club mascot Harry the Hornet has been added to the lineup.
Hodgson, 74, known for his in-ring acrobatics, will take on fellow high-flyer ‘The Hornet’ in hopes of settling a feud stretching back 6 years.
The former England boss called the mascot ‘a disgrace’ for mocking winger Wilfried Zaha when Harry provoked the Ivory Coast international by ducking for him.
Hodgson turned around after his comments about favorite Harry, but hopes to win the crowd over on Saturday.
“I will take Harry the Hornet to Know Your Role Boulevard, on the corner of Jabroni Drive – formerly Vicarage Road – and take him straight to the SmackDown Hotel,” the former Inter Milan coach told Paddy Power News.
“I’m going to kick his ass if you smell what the Roy is cooking?” he added.
