During tonight’s edition of SmackDown Live, the new No. 1 Contender to Bray Wyatt’s WWE Championship will be determined in a ten man Battle Royal, but the winner has already been revealed before the show. The belief is the winner of the match will face Bray Wyatt for the WWE Title at Wrestlemania 33 as a result of Randy Orton refusing to face Wyatt himself after winning the WWE Royal Rumble match over a month ago.

Many people are expecting Luke Harper to win the Battle Royal on SmackDown. His star is on the rise, and his victory would most mean WWE officials are planning a Triple Threat match between Harper, Orton, and Wyatt for the grandest stage of them all in Orlando. On paper, Harper is the logical choice to win the Battle Royal, but WWE officials may be thinking of using the match to create another angle for a different rivalry.

It’s being reported that Randy Orton versus Bray Wyatt for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 33 is still the plan for the event. WWE officials change their creative plans often, but Luke Harper being a part of the WWE Title match on the grandest stage of them all doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Instead, WWE wants AJ Styles to win the Battle Royal tonight on SmackDown to be the catalyst for his Wrestlemania 33 rivalry.
