Cageside Seats Championship Prediction Contest: Results for Royal Rumble

Welcome back to the Cageside Seats Championship Prediction contest as we look back on the Royal Rumble. For the first time in a long time, both Rumble matches left most people satisfied while the undercard left something to be desired. But we are firmly on the road to WrestleMania now as we go into the final stretch of our contest year. XxFiggsxX walked into Philly holding the CSS Title looking to survive a brutal gauntlet of 77 competitors looking to etch their names in the history books. In one of our closest contests ever, there was a five way tie for first place! I started looking at the tiebreakers. Little did I realize that one of the people in the tie was a familiar name and therefore, AND STILL Reigning, Defending, Undisputed CSS Champion: XxFiggsxX!!! The champ only had one foot hit the floor as he was saved not by pancakes, but by his single bonus point he earned at Clash of Champions last month. That one single point, brought him up to the tie for the lead, negating the tiebreaking procedure. Had he not tied, we would have actually had to go to the second tiebreaker as two other entries both had 3 matches in the correct order each. Just like the Rumble itself, this contest was full of surprise and fun.
