Some notes from the match:

It’s very clear that Strowman is considered a top guy because he immediately cleared the ring when he entered the match. One of those eliminations was Big Show.

Tye Dillinger got a massive reaction when he came out as number 10.

Baron Corbin eliminated Strowman.

Bray Wyatt tried to keep the peace between Luke Harper and Randy Orton but Harper nailed Wyatt with a lariat and then attempted a sister Abigail on Wyatt. Orton hit Harper with an RKO.

Lesnar immediately cleaned house with eliminations, suplexes, and F5’s on several Superstars. When Goldberg came out, he and Lesnar faced off while a bunch of Superstars were laid out in the ring. This is the setup for their final match at WrestleMania. Goldberg immediately hit a spear on Lesnar and then quickly eliminated him. Michael Cole yelled, “Goldberg’s got Lesnar’s number!”

The Undertaker got a full entrance complete with lights out and purple haze. He didn’t walk to the ring though. Instead, he just appeared in the ring and came face to face with Goldberg before other Superstars attacked. Goldberg hit a spear on Taker and Taker eliminated Goldberg seconds later.

Reigns and Taker came face to face and fought for a few seconds. Reigns eliminated Taker. FYI, they will wrestle at WrestleMania and fans chanted “bulls**t.”

Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, and Chris Jericho were the final 4 Superstars in the match. Orton and Reigns were the last two after Reigns eliminated Wyatt. Orton won after hitting the RKO and hitting a clothesline to eliminate Reigns.
