Jeff Hardy will win the match to proceed to the second round. Not to mention, he will gain a lot of momentum by defeating the leader of the Cenation.
Winner: Jeff Hardy
#2 Preliminary Match 2: Kurt Angle vs. Randy Orton

He will go one-on-one with the thirteen time World Champion Randy Orton. Notably, the “Viper” has been on a roll since he made his return a couple of months back as a heel.
Baron Corbin is expected to interfere in this match and cost Angle the match. Not only will enhances the momentum Orton has earned in this last couple of months but will set up the speculated match at the Survivor Series featuring Team Angle and Team Corbin.
Winner: Randy Orton
