Mysterio at #30 was pretty much because of his recent injuries and WWE wanting to protect him in that respect.
I just figured that for Reigns to have the strong showing he was due to have that #15 was a good place for him to come in.
There was some logic in my thinking I guess, but I'd still put some of it down to luck
