There we have it. We’ve got New Day, who BB have already beaten multiple times; the Usos, who BB have already beaten multiple times; the Bar, who haven’t bean on TV for months; and SAnitY who just won their pay-per-view debut.
What is the point of this tournament again?
One would think either the Bar or SAnitY would win because, as mentioned, Harper and Rowan have already destroyed the other two teams.
If the Bar don’t win, then does that just mean they’re gonna be left off TV for months again?
Part of me thinks we haven’t seen the end of SAnitY vs. New Day, which would indeed point to the Bar winning the tournament and being BB’s next victims. That way, SAnitY can be saved for when the beardy weirdies are set to drop the titles, which I think is still some time away.
