The Grand Prize Winner will be notified by e-mail within one (1) week of being randomly selected. The Grand Prize Winner may be required to provide additional information to confirm identity and eligibility and also may be required to complete and sign an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release and, where legal, a Publicity Release, and any other documentation that WWE may require and to see to it that WWE is in receipt of such information and documents within five (5) days of being requested to provide the same.

The prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected at random from the remaining eligible entries that include the correct answer to the trivia question and confirmed in accordance with these Official Rules (i) if a potential Grand Prize Winner does not timely provide the requisite information, return the requisite documents or cannot be reached within five (5) days from initial notification attempt, (ii) if prize is returned as non-deliverable, and/or (iii) in the event of non-compliance with any of the requirements of these Official Rules.
