    Most likely results for the women’s Semi-Finals given WWE’s booking.
    Zelina Vega over Carmella with help from Liv Morgan.
    Shayna Baszler over Doudrop with help from Eva Marie.

    As for the men are WWE going for KIng Zayn? (which sounds better than King Sami) King Balor? King Mahal? (whom is giving the WWE fans a Disney King John vibe) or King Xavier/King Woods? (which would also be Woods first non tag team achivement since his days in Deep South Wrestling and East Coast Wrestling Association if Woods were to become King) Right now the common believe among fans is that Jinder Mahal will win since the final is being held in Saudi Arabia at Crown Jewel.

    Doudrop might get some kind of “out of nowhere” upset victory since she’s the only face left in the women’s field to set up a face vs. heel final. I do think whichever of Vega or Carmella wins the semifinal will win the final since WWE seems to prefer a heel king/queen (let’s face it, a power-mad ego-tripping tyrant is a better storyline than a benevolent ruler) and either of them would be the best kind of insufferable in that role. Which of them wins depends on whether Vega has jobbed her way out of the doghouse yet, though with some recent victories that’s a possibility.

    And I know I just said WWE prefers a heel, but I’ve got a feeling about Woods on the men’s side. Kofi and Big E have both reached the pinnacle now, so this could be WWE’s way to finally give him something of his own apart from New Day. It goes against my normal instincts regarding WWE’s booking, so anything could happen – Balor’s already a Prince, Zayn would be the most insufferable, and Mahal…well, even though Saudi Arabia and India are different places, “maharaja” literally means “king.”
