The Final Four is a Powerhouse line-up and I'm getting a gut feeling CC is headed for the Gold, but I wouldn't mind seeing Roderick Strong win it. I am looking to see if Danielson can rebound and defeat Younger and if he wins, will he get a CVW Title Shot...
Since my pick Masada is out I'm going with Davey Richards to take it all. Awesome tournament Vegas.

- an awesome finals match (a total of 17 pin/submission attempts) that ended when S.C.U.M.- the enemies of the American Wolves- arrived and distracted Davey allowing Claudio to hit him with a Roaring European Uppercut and score the pinfall with getting away with putting his feet on the ropes for extra leverage

Too bad Elgin lost to Sami, but Truth using the Book of Truth is always cool to see. Younger beating Danielson is huge and the Losing Streak watch is on for BD. CC winning the Gold over Richards is a barnburner and can he take another belt to become a Triple Crown Champ, I want to see that. Solid Action Vegas, keep it coming...
