TOURNAMENT BRACKET


OVERALL PREDICTIONS

I basically have three groups in my mind, when looking at this list after the bracket:

Unlikely:
- Apollo Crews (fed to Andrade)
- Buddy Murphy (I can't see him moving on and facing any of the 4 options on the opposite side of his section of the bracket)
- Cesaro (if he makes it past Joe, he'll still have a hard time against Ricochet and then Alexander)
- Chad Gable
- Elias (R-Truth may screw him, since Elias has the 24/7 Championship)
- The Miz (I can see him losing in the first round)
- Sami Zayn
- Shelton Benjamin

Possible:
- Ali (He'll lose to Murphy in the first round if KO beats Elias)
- Baron Corbin (if he beats Miz and beats Alexander, he has a good shot at winning, unless Andrade is the star on the right, as then, Ricochet would have to beat Corbin in the semifinals)
- Cedric Alexander (I think he'll lose to Joe or McIntyre in round 3)
- Ricochet

Possible Winners:

- Andrade
- Drew McIntyre
- Kevin Owens
- Samoa Joe

I think the finals will be either McIntyre/Owens, Joe/Owens or maybe Joe/Andrade if they decide to go with a babyface turn for Joe.

Update #1: Kevin Owens lost, so that changes my mind about how that side of the bracket will turn out. I guess Ali beats Buddy Murphy and then can either beat or lose to Elias.

Update #2: Well, now that Drew McIntyre is gone, I'm left thinking Andrade or Ricochet will win. Between those two, I'm leaning more toward Andrade.

Update #3: Now, it's either Ricochet, Baron Corbin or Samoa Joe on the Raw side and either Elias or Chad Gable on the SmackDown half. I think one side dictates the other. If it's Corbin or Joe, then Gable beats Elias. If Ricochet wins, Elias takes the right side of the bracket. My main picks are all being eliminated outside of Samoa Joe from the start and Ricochet in my second round of picks, but I'm starting to think they might really be into Gable.

Update #4: So it's Baron Corbin in the final against either Elias or Chad Gable. I think that means by default, it has to be Gable, and now, I'm leaning more toward Gable winning the whole thing.

Update #5: Elias was replaced by Shane McMahon, who lost to Chad Gable. Then, they decided to just toss up a graphic saying the finals would take place on Raw, rather than Clash of Champions. If so, that's a big disappointment that they cut this match out of everything and didn't plan ahead of time how many matches would be on the pay-per-view. It isn't as though it's hard to count the titles in advance. This makes me think there's more of a plan to give Corbin the win than Gable because it won't matter as much on Raw and it won't be as disappointing for the heel to win if it's just a match on television.
