This is honestly one of the harder WWE shows to predict in awhile. Not that WWE is always predictable, but this show is a completely new animal. A heavily hyped house show in a stadium in front of a new audience. WWE could book lots of swerves and surprises to make the show feel like it was important. Or they could do what they think would be the best received by a large foreign audience.

I’ll guess that WWE keeps it simple and books it like a super house show which means a lot of baby faces winning.

The longest match outside the rumble was Triple H vs John Cena

I had Jericho as #1. No partial credit for only being off by 49 guys?

A question for all of the folks that had Big Cass as last eliminated… was this an obvious thing that I should have picked up on?

@Pickles0303 Pretty sure I got 16 points, not 15.

Fixed for you @Rated_R_Poster

If you were sure Braun Strowman was winning, then to me it became clear that Vince would want that visual of tall-guy vs tall-guy as the final two. It should also be a heel so you don’t run into a situation where people are disappointed that Braun eliminated another baby face (so definitely not Daniel Bryan).

It came down to either Drew McIntyre or Big Cass. And the internet rumors and his booking suggest that Big Cass is in line for a big heel push so I went with him as the bigger star in Vince’s eyes.

Winning a contest with no prize but only bragging rights has been the highlight of my life. Thank you all for guessing worse than me.
