Re: Royal Rumble Pool 2019!!!

There actually appears to be some controversy as to how many eliminations Strowman has.

While wwe.com and wikipedia (which appears to just be copying wwe.com thinking that's official) lists 4 each, multiple other websites like bleacher report and cbssports (amongst the ones I've checked) are saying he has 5.

The discrepancy appears to come with the elimination of Jeff Hardy. WWE is stating Hardy was elimianted by Mcintyre, these other websites are saying he was eliminated by Braun.

While WWE would SEEM to be the official authority on this, their website can't be taken as 100% correct. This is a screenshot of the official wwe.com results. They have "Alexa Bliss" listed as the eliminator of Rey Mysterio lol. So clearly wwe.com has some issues



I haven't gone back on the network and watched the rumble. And I won't be able to this afternoon.

If anyone has, or does, please let me know who eliminated Jeff Hardy.

For now, we can go on the assumption of a tie.

I'll wait for someone else to confirm but I think what happened was Stroman was trying to toss Hardy over the ropes and Mcentire threw both of them over. Stroman saved himself by hanging onto the rope but hardy didn't.

Re: Royal Rumble Pool 2019!!!

What are the different final elimination counts for Drew and Braun based on giving that elimination totally to Drew, totally to Braun, and giving .5 to each?

Re: Royal Rumble Pool 2019!!!

My $.02: I'd give all of that to Drew. No reason to think Jeff goes out without Drew pushing Braun onto Jeff.

Agree with this completely. I have no vested interest in that, and haven't looked to see who would be monetarily affected.

Giving to Drew outright is what makes it 4 to 4. I totally agree with this. Half the most eliminations pot of $25 shipped.
