Citing the rules of the traditional Battle Royal style match, we’re sure this one is going to be anything but typical. With two members of the Saturday Night Live crew now a part of the bout — Colin Jost and Michael Che — the entire contest will likely consist of the Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman, chasing them around and those two trying not to get killed.

The participants announced are:

The following Superstars have announced their entry into the annual brawl:

Braun Strowman
Colin Jost & Michael Che of SNL fame 
Andrade     
Apollo Crews
Titus O’Neil    
Tyler Breeze      
Jinder Mahal  
No Way Jose     
Bobby Roode
Chad Gable       
Kalisto
Gran Metalik    
Lince Dorado    
Bo Dallas            
Curtis Axel    
Heath Slater    
Rhyno
Viktor    
Konnor    
Ali          
Shelton Benjamin  
Luke Gallows
Karl Anderson  
Matt Hardy       
Jeff Hardy     
Otis
Tucker
EC3

There are no real surprises on this list as all names are currently roster members on either Raw or SmackDown Live. Jeff Hardy and Andrade may be considered good bets but in the end, is there any way that Strowman isn’t going to pull out the victory here?

It’s a shame that the best WWE seems to be able to do with Strowman is give him a spot in the Battle Royal and not a feature match on the company’s biggest card of the year. But, he’s either upset someone or he’s going to get this match as a major showcase. The last time WWE offered up something similar is when he won the Greatest Royal Rumble.

At that time he was given a belt and it sort of disappeared from existence. This time, he’ll have a chance to take home a huge Andre the Giant trophy.
