WWE Super ShowDown: Full match-card predictions
After the completion of a mostly successful Money in the Bank PPV, WWE's next stop is in the Middle East where the company will be holding its 3rd PPV in the land of Saudi Arabia, WWE Super ShowDown. The event will take place on June 7, 2019, at the King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
With some huge names and matches already announced for the show, WWE is looking all set to make this a star-studded event.
In this article, I present my full match card predictions for the event along with the winners. Feel free to let me know in the comments section about the changes you would like to see on this match card.
#10 50-man Battle Royal
One of the biggest questions at last year's Greatest Royal Rumble event was whether the 50-man Royal Rumble was a one-time deal or will be a yearly event. WWE has now announced that a 50-man Battle Royal will take place at Super ShowDown.
If you are unaware of the difference between a Royal Rumble and a Battle Royal, let me tell you. In the first one, the match starts with 2 competitors, and a new competitor joins in after a fixed time.
The way to eliminate any superstar is to throw him over the top rope with both of his feet touching the ground. While the way of elimination is the same in a Battle Royal as well, the key difference is that all the competitors gather in the ring together, and then the match begins.
One of my biggest concerns with the announced 50-man Battle Royal is how so many wrestlers will fit in the ring at once! I am really interested in seeing how WWE will execute the match. Will we have an oversized ring?
As for the superstars involved, I can see some major superstars competing in this match to increase the star-power. Superstars like Drew McIntyre, Sami Zayn, AJ Styles, Ricochet, etc, can make this a pretty interesting match with some cool spots.
Prediction: Drew McIntyre or Lars Sullivan will win
#9 Braun Strowman vs Bobby Lashley
Another already announced match for the event in Saudi Arabia is the Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman, taking on the All Mighty Bobby Lashley in a one-on-one match for the first time ever.
This match would be a pure display of strength and power from both these heavyweights. I'm excited to see whether Braun comes out for this match wearing the green belt he won last year at the Greatest Royal Rumble. That'd be a great way to have some continuity in the event and would also portray Saudi Arabia as Braun's yard.
Prediction: Braun Strowman wins
