The ongoing beef between Braun Strowman and Saturday Night Live funnymen Michael Che and Colin Jost concluded this past Monday with the trio announcing themselves for this year's Andre the Giant Battle Royal.
That's about as far as WWE's forward planning has went for 2019's edition of the annual WrestleMania tradition, with the company yesterday lazily and unceremoniously dumping 26 otherwise available employees into the match, amongst them last year's winner Matt Hardy, recent main-eventer Ali, and former WWE Champion (!) Jinder Mahal.
A quick count of the fingers and toes brings the total number of participants up to 29. The thirtieth and final battle royalee, then, is conspicuous by his absence on the list. That means there's one solo entrance reserved for a big surprise. It has to be someone good.
Or it could be Dolph Ziggler.
That crushing inevitability aside, and assuming Hall of Famers Honky Tonk Man (too old) and Sean Waltman (too far above this nonsense) are out, who could realistically take the spot? And will any of them have a hope of beating off a comedian (no, not Dolph) to win the damn thing?
Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
