An update on the Royal Rumble Predictions Contest that we broke the tie with using the Elimination Chamber PPV. The tiebreakers were (1) predict the Chamber match winner and (2) predict who will be eliminated first.
Of the 21 Rumble Winners, only one SuperWinner emerged from the pack, Sammy Sheen!
Sammy selected both Jack Swagger to win the Chamber and Daniel Bryan to be first eliminated. Only two other Rumble winners selected Swagger to win, but they both picked Kane to be eliminated first. Mark Henry was the most popular selection to win the Chamber match.
All 21 Rumble winners will receive a prize and Sammy will receive a super-prize.
Thank you to everyone who participated. We might do a WrestleMania Prediction Contest, depending on when WWE actually finalizes the Mania line-up. So, stay tuned!
Post-Rumble January Update
With over 400 Royal Rumble predictions entered, 21 PWTorch readers correctly picked the Final Four of John Cena, Ryback, Sheamus, and Dolph Ziggler, and John Cena as the Rumble Winner. 27 readers got the Final Four correct, but missed on the winner.
Over 200 entrants got three out of four in the Final Four. Most missed by selecting Randy Orton, who was in the Final Five, or by selecting the wrong mystery entrant, selecting a member of The Shield, or selecting The Rock or C.M. Punk if the WWE Title match went on before the Rumble.
Of the entrants who got the Final Four but missed on Cena winning, Miguel A. even got it down to Cena and Ryback as the Final Two, but selected Ryback to win.
Because there are 21 winners, we will have a tiebreaker at the Elimination Chamber PPV. Winners will be notified by email of the tiebreaker, and we will announce the winner of the tiebreaker after Elimination Chamber.
Congratulations to the Final Four bragging rights owners, and thank you to everyone who submitted an entry in the Rumble Prediction Contest!
