  1. You have to wonder if Chad Gable vs. Shelton Benjamin will be joined in progress with no entrances. Just seems like an odd match up of arguably the two least likely winners of the tourney.

  2. I have a final four of Drew v Miz and KO v Andrade. I’m fairly confident on the SD side, but Raw could go Ricochet v Corbin as well.

    Either way, I think Andrade walks away as KOTR.

  3. Looking at that it will come down to Ricochet vs Corbin on the raw side.

    Definitely Owens vs Andrade on SD side.

    Owens vs Corbin final. Shane O costs Owens the final for King Corbin. Or his interference fails for King Owens. Either way I am convinced this is your final.

  4. corbin’s boring character and generic promos are already like he was a king of the ring winner so it wouldn’t be much of a character change or career suicide like it was for bad news barrett

  5. Murphy wins the KOTR.
