  • King???

    How about a “President of the ring” or a “Prime minister of the ring”. You know, out of respect for democracy.

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    Shane McMahon to win the whole thing!

  • Soulshroude

    Shouldn’t the headline read either “The WWe Announces”, or “WWe has announced”? It’s a single entity, not plural.

  • CC

    Most likely winners are Owens or McIntyre.

    That said, others who could win would include Ali, Andrade, Joe and Ricochet.

    Knowing WWE though, it will be Corbin.

  • Jon Poyser

    Owens v Drew final

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Drew’s my pick, not that there’s anything wrong with these guys but the wrestlers chosen for this seem so half assed and random they really could have done better
