WWE Breaking News: 8-Man Tournament to Crown a New Champion on Raw

Bryan FloryAnalyst IJuly 18, 2011

Vince McMahon just started off Raw by stating that an eight man tournament will be held to crowd a new WWE Champion tonight.

The matches are:

The Miz vs. Alex Riley

Rey Mysterio vs. Dolph Ziggler

Jack Swagger vs. R-Truth

Kofi Kingston vs. Alberto Del Rio

Interesting that Evan Bourne is the only participant from last night's Money in the Bank ladder match that is not in the tournament.

Clearly, they don't believe he could be a credible champion.

My choice is Dolph Ziggler. Call it a hunch, but it doesn't make sense for Del Rio to win, and they are playing up the Miz's leg injury from last night.

Feel free to post your choice below.


Kofi Kingston will face The Miz

Rey Mysterio will face R-Truth

Update Part 2:

The Miz will face Rey Mysterio in the finals

For the love of God, please don't let Rey Mysterio win.

I'm of the opinion now that Del Rio will cash in after the finals and win the WWE Title.
