Rumble Prediction Stats:
- 311 out of the 500+ Rumble entries (62 percent) had at least three out of four in the Final Four.
The most popular of the 311 close-calls was a combination of Batista (expected winner), Roman Reigns (expected to dominate), C.M. Punk (expected to be the Iron Man from #1), and then Daniel Bryan in the fourth slot.
There were also combinations of Batista, Reigns, and Sheamus (good surprise picks) along with D-Bryan.
- There were several participants who had good thoughts on Batista, one of the other finalists, and then Daniel Bryan and Alberto Del Rio, who feuded with Batista leading up to the Rumble.
Other intriguing nearfalls featured Batista alone with The Shield (Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Seth Rollins) in the Final Four.
There were a lot of participants who picked 2/4 with Daniel Bryan and Brock Lesnar in two of the final slots.
