There are 30 men in the Andre the Giant Battle Royal, but we all know that there are only a handful of wrestlers with a realistic chance of winning. Most guys will be thrown over the top ropes early, and several spots will be used on returning stars and/or legends, who also have no shot at winning.
With all that in mind, here are the five most likely winners of the inaugural AGMBR:
As an up-and-coming star with the Intercontinental belt already around his waist, Big E is a legitimate candidate to win the BR. He makes for a realistic winner because of his size and strength, plus, a victory would continue to build his credibility by adding a nice trophy to his resume.
Henry doesn't need this win. However, you can't rule out WWE giving him the victory as a type of career achievement.
Just like Henry, Show really has no business winning the event. He doesn't need to add anything else to his career resume, but he could be awarded the victory to solidify his status at the second greatest big man behind Andre.
The Miz is quietly still undefeated at WM. He had a prime spot on Raw this past week in a segment with Hulk Hogan, so don't rule him out in the BR. A win could easily propel him back into upper mid-card status.
Based on the information available at this time, Sheamus seems like the most likely winner. He's still in need of a WM moment and we know that WWE is keen on him. I view Sheamus getting the BR win as a sort of consolation prize for him not getting a one-on-one match.
