Lars Sullivan at 800 k way to high in my opinion, maybe put him at 500 or 600k, maybe drop Owens down as well (Still Injured)

Daniel Bryan 1 Million, he's WWE Champion not AJ Styles. I'd bump AJ down to 800 maybe but he's also fine at 1 Million.

Owens still injured, so maybe down to 200, he might not even be back at all during this season honestly.

Lars hasn't even debuted yet, I'd put him in the 600 range.

Joe and Nakamura get treated like trash, I'd put them in the 600 range.

Bray Wyatt's been off TV since Summerslam, I'd consider lowering him to 400.

Cedric Alexander lost the Cruiserweight title awhile back and hasn't built much momentum since then, I'd bump him down to 500 and raise Buddy Murphy up to 600.

Drew McIntyre probably deserves to be 800.

Lacey only just debuted and I doubt she'll be a big player for a bit, I'd do 400 on her.

Mandy isn't a big deal yet, 400 or 500.

Otis and Tucker both 500.

Sami still injured, may not even be back this season, 200.

Matt's been off TV since Summerslam, probably 400 or even 200.

Move Killian Dane down to 400 to be with the rest of SaNiTy, not like he's doing anything else anyway.

Charlotte arguably could be 800 as well.


I'd consider the following:
Moving Braun down a bracket and move Daniel Bryan up.
Charlotte could be at 800,000
I'd either move Sami Zayn up one bracket or move Kevin Owens down a bracket
Lars may be better off a bracket or two lower given his delayed debut and the rumors surrounding it.


Thanks for the responses so far @lonewanderer @Mr.Windham29 @BamBamsGurlMoo @Zack T - I've updated the list.

I've moved:
  • Braun Strowman down to $800K
  • Lars Sullivan down to $600K (I put Lars in the $800K category due to all the hype videos, I was kinda expecting him to debut at the Rumble and have a Kane moment of throwing lots of superstars out)
  • Moved Daniel Bryan up to $1 million
  • Kevin Owens down to $200K
  • Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura down to $600K
  • Cedric down to $500K
  • Buddy Murphy up to $600K
  • Drew McIntyre up to $800K
  • Matt Hardy and Killian Dane down to $400K
  • Charlotte up to $800K

I kept Bray Wyatt where he is, he's OK to return so I'd expect him back soon and I wouldn't be surprised if he got pushed again.

I kept Lacey and Heavy Machinery in the $600K group - I'm expecting them to get a decent push, to begin with at least, I think that should be enough to warrant that category.

I kept Mandy where she is, she seems to be focused quite abit on Smackdown, I can see that continuing.

I kept Sami where he is. I'm kinda expecting him to be a surprise entrant in the Rumble. I know they hyped his return and he said he wasn't ready any time soon. However, I still think that could be a ploy to make his return more of a shock. (I could well be wrong!)

If you got any more suggestions or think I'm wrong with any of the above, let me know!

Sounds good. Are you gonna open up sign ups soon, before the Rumble?

I'm hoping to open tomorrow but the season won't begin until either Next Monday (4th Feb) or the one after - still not made the final decision yet.

Is Sawyer Fulton still employed by the WWE?
Good catch, nope - will remove him.
