After a short break, we returned to the match to find five remaining men.Damian Priest and Riddle were the last two in the ring. After several close calls, Riddle defeated Priest to earn a spot in the triple threat match.Grade: CAnalyseWWE was without Orton this week, so they had to find something else. WWE decided to make Riddle the Viper's fight instead of pushing the triple threat for next week.Battle Royals are a lot fun. However, this match lacked the predictability that is expected from this type of match. It seemed a bit too planned-out to be spontaneous.Although Riddle's win was predictable and boring, it was necessary if The Legend Killer is to be in the MITB match.The plus side is that WWE used this bout as a platform to promote a few storylines for the midcard. All the issues were addressed, including Jeff Hardy vs. Cedric Alex, The Viking Raiders against Styles and Omos, and the storyline with Ali & Mansoor.
