WWE announced the following first round matches for the World Cup tournament.
-Kurt Angle vs. Rey Mysterio
-Seth Rollins vs. Bobby Lashley
-Jeff Hardy vs. The Miz
-Rey Mysterio vs. Randy Orton
Powell’s POV: The bracket is split by brands, meaning the winners of the Raw wrestlers will face one another in round two, as will the Smackdown wrestlers. So the only crossover match will be in the finals. The tournament will be held at Friday’s WWE Crown Jewel event.
