Spears joins Sonny Kiss, Brandon Cutler, Ace Romero, Glacier, Brian Pillman Jr., Sunny Daze, MJF, Joey Janela, Dustin Thomas, Billy Gunn, Jimmy Havoc, Michael Nakazawa, Jungle Boy, Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen, and Luchasaurus in the Battle Royale.
S.A.M.’s Spiel: This battle royale is certainly shaping up to have quite the notable participants. The battle royal from All In was a ton of fun and I expect the same for Double or Nothing. With the names announced, it really is making it hard to figure out who might win this. Though I will say it adds to the fun of making predictions.
