The r/MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament: Redemption House - Day 17 (Round Three)
2020.02.11 05:38 ND_PCThe r/MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament: Redemption House - Day 17 (Round Three)
It’s the third round of the MtvChallenge redemption house, losers! This round will last two days only, and is a way of separating the above average from the mediocre. In other words, all teams entering this round have losers’ bracket experience, so hopefully, all teams have been hardened to the point of competing with reckless abandon. While the official Fantasy League™ teams don’t know the misery of suffering, the teams here have the stench of defeat trailing them everywhere they go. How exciting! Join us as losers continue to battle head-to-head to fight for redemption, coming back from embarrassing losses, terrifying finals, and (supposed) voter insanity. While you won’t enter back into the Winner’s Bracket, you may just find yourself the Ruler of Redemption. Before we get to the voting, let’s recap last night’s match-ups. Real World Bracket Match 1.0
Well, u/mthompson22599, the voting public finally gave you what you deserved for picking both Tonya and Kenny. Your apologies couldn’t possibly defeat Leroy, Luke, Laurel, and Jaime in a grueling Rivals II Final. Honestly, Team Dutch Australians took this one because of Laurel. It’s okay, I’m not afraid to say what everyone else is too scared to say: Laurel is an unstoppable freak. She would have no issue shoving her teammates through the hard parts of this final and pushing them to help her solve the puzzles and basically bullying her way to a win. Laurel is the robot princess I don't deserve. One day I will build myself a robot and marry it, and its name will be Laurel, and it will have the same personality as Laurel Stucky - cold, detached, and somehow still capable of launching into a maniacal frenzy at the drop of a hat. But until that day, I’ll have to settle for watching Laurel feast on the minds, hearts, souls, and flesh of friend and foe alike. This imaginary final is no exception, as she is clearly the difference-maker in this final that involves endurance, puzzles, and digging (fun!). Congratulations to u/stayoutofthe-forest and u/dereleek07! Match 2.0
Tangrams, Sudoku, Patterns, and more Sudoku spell doom for a team of Joss, Cooke, Nia, and Ty. Can you please have a moment of table-rage for Nia on my behalf? I’m being completely serious, I’m a huge Nia fan and hate to see her lose anything, ever. (I’m not a Nia defender, though… that would be something else entirely.) But really, I cannot imagine that Joss, Nia, and Ty would successfully complete one puzzle, let alone four, to win a final. Joss doesn’t know how to strategize, so puzzles are definitely a no-no from him. Nia probably couldn’t keep her cool long enough to do a puzzle. Ty… well, on second thought, maybe he could successfully complete a tangram or patterns-based puzzle. Cooke would have to carry the team, and I don’t think she would be up to the task. Team Adore Delano 2020 would have no such issue. Evelyn and Ashley would use their profound contemplative nature and keen insight to big-brain their way through the two sudoku puzzles, while Ace and Cohutta would use their superior charm and unmatched intellect to speed through Tangrams and the pattern-based puzzle. In all seriousness, Adore Delano 2020 is probably the physically stronger team (though deceptively so!), and that would make a real difference in these tasks - especially the log-moving puzzle. They would maintain composure and have good teamwork throughout the final, and they would easily claim the victory. Congrats to u/honestkodaline and u/priorsloth! Road Rules Bracket Match 1.0
The Challenge godfather Mark Long has finally been eliminated from the Road Rules bracket, and who else to vanquish him than a team consisting of a psycho, a sweetheart, a sleezeball, and another psycho. Those players are, in no order, Abram, Diem, Rogan, and Melissa Reeves. Actually, that’s the real order. Abram is a psycho, Diem a sweetheart, Rogan a sleezeball, and Mel is another psycho. The final starts with an eating challenge. Mark Long and his team of misfits are okay at this, but Rogan clears the table faster than he’s done anything in his life, except getting matching tattoos with Joss. He takes one for the team by eating even what his teammates cannot. (As he has many times before, he proves himself to be a sweetheart after all.) On the following army crawl, Melissa gets flashbacks to the mud from her epic elimination battle with Sylvia. She starts rolling in the mud uncontrollably and motivates her team to go faster and collect the artifact. She is so amped up from the visceral memories of kneeing Sylvia repeatedly for the sake of a ball that she carries the artifact all by herself to the next checkpoint. Later, on the balance beam obstacle course and the number-block puzzle, Diem and Abram team up to distract the other team so they are penalized as much as possible. Although they don’t quite get worked up to the point of nosebleeds, they succeed in a masterful display of teamwork. This team slightly ekes out Mark Long and co. Congratulations u/Gelado99! Better luck next time, u/thatstats969 Match 2.0
Okay, u/Switchstop is no longer the self-proclaimed “luckiest team in the tournament,” he’s also me-proclaimed that. That makes it semi-official, at least. Not only did this team experience a swimming-light final, but they also only barely won their matchup! And against a team of contestants all from the same season, too! Agh. Sorry, u/MattyRobsDW, this ends your time on the Challenge fantasy tournament. Take care of yourself, we’ll definitely be seeing you again. You had one of my favorite teams to root for, and I’m sorry to see you go. But why did this happen? Why did this team of rookies only go 2-2 in finals? How could that possibly be? Well, as we all know, the Inferno final has to do with the seven deadly sins, and it seems like this team has a lot of repenting to do. The lust that Georgia and Bear had on their rookie season would certainly hold them back. The wrath that Morgan had after so many people misspelled her last name on the MtvChallenge fantasy tournament writeups would prove to be her downfall. Bear’s gluttony after being rejected by Georgia (ugh, if only Georgia was the player in that relationship) would incapacitate him to the point of being unable to run the final. Theo’s envy of the other Olympic athletes that wound up more athletically successful than him would eat away at him all throughout the final. The collective greed of these rookies would expose them as a team of pretenders rather than contenders, and their pride would compel them to continue to compete in spite of their shortcomings. In the end, their sloth (well, not Theo) would get the better of them, and they would roll over and submit to the cold grasp of defeat. Congrats to u/Switchstop, and better luck next year u/MattyRobsDW! Now, let’s get to voting. Today is another DOUBLE DAY, so we will have TWO matchups from each bracket! Real World Bracket Match 1.0:u/rileymarks1 vs. u/Lalapalooza6252059 Final: The Duel Teams [u/rileymarks1]
Winner’s Logic - neither team provided logic, so I will do so. These will probably end up being super subjective because Stolen by Dashboard Confessional just came on my shuffle so I’m working through this kind of quickly so I can go eat my feelings and perhaps also cry. [u/rileymarks1]
You know my feelings on Frank Sweeney. I love him. Yes, earlier I said I’m a Nia fan and now I’m reiterating my fandom for Frank Sweeney. This tells you the type of viewer I am. I also was rooting for Cersei Lannister or the White Walkers to win the Game of Thrones. I like bad and vile characters, so sue me. But anyway, Frank is great because of how bad he is, and also because he has the physical ability to back it up.
Jenny West is a FAKE PERSON, PHYSICALLY. But she’s a blast to cheer for and I can’t wait to see her on another season. She’s super strong and she was probably the rookie of the year, competition-wise (Sorry, Idris). She’s not the brightest light in the big city but she’s definitely capable of winning dailies and probably has the endurance and physical strength to run a final pretty well.
Mitch was pretty relatable as a competitor. I wanted to be his friend. He is Cory’s cousin and idolizes Cory for no reason. But don’t we all have similarly-aged idols at all stages of life before we outgrow them as idols and realize what a terrible mistake we made? Yes, we do. Like actually. I took an adolescent psychology class and this is what it taught me. So Cory was Mitch’s version of that, who cares? It doesn’t change the fact that Mitch was a pretty good competitor with a knack for puzzles and would be a good teammate.
Morgan Willett. No! You know what? I know nothing about this girl. I remember her glomming onto Bananas, which was a storyline I was tired of before it started. She seemed fit, but I really didn’t notice how well she did on challenges. She was the victim of a fellow rookie changing his vote so she would go into elimination with big bad Bananas, and now she hangs out on Bananas’s Instagram story from time to time. I’m pretty sure they went on a months-long vacation after their premature elimination on War of the Worlds. She seemed fit. Make whatever judgment you will on that.
Jordan Wisely went from Sarah Rice some years ago to Tori Deal now. His chill:pull ratio is not 5:5, however, because he is seriously lacking in the chill department. He is one of the cockiest competitors to ever grace the show with his presence. He is a seriously talented dude, and he is a great narrator. He has awful facial hair and questionable style, but his fiancee and he are dedicated to growing together, so who knows how long either of those things will last? Dude is magnificent at representing the differently-abled community as he consistently defeats people in two-handed activities with only one hand.
Stephen Bear is a lunatic! He is awful! His haircut in War of the Worlds 2 walked the fine line between hot and awful, and I think it landed on awful. But aside from being physically repulsive, he is always screaming and messing things up just for the heck of it. He brings completely manufactured entertainment to the show, like a personified version of the stunt that Bananas pulled with his sister and the notes. He is a decent competitor but he’s known for having a ton of followers and taking one round (of three) off Joss in a modified hall brawl. He eliminated Wes, sure. So bake him a cake or something. He’s not worthy of much more.
Nicole Zanatta needs some serious speech pathology work. Her accent isn’t the worst thing about her voice. Her voice’s quality, pitch, rate, fluency, articulation, and tone all combine to make one of the most annoying noises we’ve ever had the displeasure of hearing on a show. She brings out the bi in a lot of women (which is awesome of MTV to show even if she doesn’t necessarily do it with the intention of being inclusive) but she pulls above her weight way too often. How! How. Literally how? If I had a fraction of her confidence in my dating life maybe I could get a date. Competition-wise, she’s easily in the Top 20% of women to ever compete on the show. But she was defeated by a hole in the ground, so she might not do well if the final includes running, as most do.
Mandi Moyer has the appearance of a high school girl who wants to look really good for homecoming - fake tan, bleach blonde straightened hair, giant exposed forehead. This may only be because I grew up in New Jersey, but it seemed like there were plenty of girls trying to look older than they are at an event where literally nobody would be older than them. This is Mandi Moyer. She looks like Jennifer Anniston had a child with Jamie Lynn Spears and it got a so-so mix of genes. Yep! This is all I can remember about her. Please let this excellent description inform your decision.
The Duel Final Description - thanks to u/oxman88 for the description!
Final was actually named, they called it a play on words based on where they filmed that season. They called the final for the Duel; "The Rio Deal" It was a 2-part challenge. The first part of the challenge consisted of one small competition, that perhaps made up less than 5% of the actual contest. However, the 2-minute advantage that you got as a result of winning it, was nearly immeasurable because Brad ended up losing to Wes by all accounts, by less than the 2 minutes Wes gained by winning the 1st part of the final. Here we go!
1st Part.....1v1 Soccer penalty kicks, just like you would do in a soccer game except the goal and the shootout area were both truncated. The goal was clearly not quite as tall as a normal goal and definitely nowhere near as wide as a normal goal. And instead of shooting from the penalty hash which is normally 10 yds(30ft) from the goal line, they were shooting from what appeared to be about 15-20 feet away. Each person was given 5 shots while their opponent played goalie. The order of start was determined by who had won the last daily challenge. Unclear as to what they would have done in the event of a tie. Presumably they would have given each person continuing forward, one kick at a time until somebody made one and their opponent missed. Winner was whomever made more goals out of the five on their opponent, and that winner was given a two-minute head start on the next part of the final. 2nd Part..... A foot race on what appeared to be a walking trail in a jungle park on a large mountainous outcrop.
Along the way during this race, there was two stops, each with a required task to perform. The foot race began with one player getting a two-minute Head Start and taking off along a hiking trail that at times was very tricky with lots of uphill and downhill, lots of rocks, lots of vegetation, steps sometimes.
Stop #1 ..... a puzzle called "BRAZILIAN BLOCKS" At the bottom of a large mountainous area, there were 4 large blocks for each Challenger, and instructions. each of these large blocks 18 in square, and each side had one of four different multi colored patterns. The instructions told you that you had to carry one at a time up a hill, place it in the puzzle tray, rinse and repeat until you had brought all four of your blocks up to the puzzle tray at the top of the hill. The Climb itself was very tricky and tough . There were lots of rocks, steps, it was very Steep, and at the top you made it up onto the stone mountain top and apparently were quite close to a pretty big Edge. Once all four of your colored blocks were in the tray, you could begin solving and a 30-minute timer was started. Strategically it made sense to hold off for just a second before you placed your last block to make sure that you were ready to start, or that you had gathered your thoughts, looked at the blocks and thought of strategy, whatever. The tray itself was a left-to-right rack not unsimilar to a basketball rack let's say. There were more instructions detailing that your 4 pieces had to be placed in the tray such that, in a line, all 4 were next to each other & so that all 4 sides included one each of the four colors. The four sides meant of course, front, back, top and bottom. If a color is repeated on any one of the four sides, the puzzle is incorrect and you had to keep trying. Once you finished your puzzle, or your 30 minutes were up, you were able to continue on the foot race.
Stop #2 ..... a task called "TEETOR TOTTER". Lol, yes it was spelled that way. I double checked, and indeed it was incorrect. Teeter is not supposed to have an "o" in it. The task was basically a simple "scale". there was a giant teeter totter with space on one end for you to stand, and a basket on the other end in which you were to place rocks that looked like chunks of cement blocks. You had to take the rocks, and put them in the basket on the other side of the teeter-totter to eventually counterbalance your own weight. There was just a little trial and error of adding more and more rocks and getting the right amount so that eventually you could stand on the opposite end of the teeter-totter and keep it level for 5 seconds. Once you were able to keep it level for 5 seconds, the task at stop number two was complete and you continued on with the foot race. There was just another, at least it seemed so on TV, another short section of foot race along this Trail, and at the end you collected a flag. The first person to that flag after completing the the teeter-totter task at stop number two, was the victor!
You took the flag and gave it to the "pilot" for lack of a better word, of a tandem hang glider that was waiting for you just near the end. The hang glider flew you down to a beach in Rio, where you landed, disembarked and ran down a short section of beach towards TJ, who was holding your big oversized Challenge Winner's check.
Jodi - Jodi has been the “last woman standing” multiple times in her career. She started off her career by being the only woman to make the final of her road rules season and was the first female individual champion on “The Duel”. Jodi, a two time champion, has proven to be good in just about every challenge that she has completed in. Winning 9/15 challenges with the Rookies over the veterans or by winning 7/15 individual challenges in the Duel, a record for most individual or duo challenge wins in a season. Even in her “worst” season she was seen as easily the best girl on the cast. So much so that when the good guys switched to put her into elimination against Veronica, The Bad Asses were enraged and claimed they weren’t playing fair. She came back and was again the top female competitor and was seen as indispensible by her team. Among her many talents she excels in water based competition, blowing away her competition in “Rafty Race” and securing her spot in the final with beating even the men in “Paddle me.” Her pure physicality matches strength with speed and endurance (as seen in challenges like “Roller Derby” and “Ice breakers”. Jodi was so good on “The Duel” that she was practically the winner as soon as they announced the woman in the sand would be the one choosing her opponent, no woman felt they could stand a chance against her. She is truly in a class of her own amongst female competitors and consistently competes on a same level as even the top men.
Jillian - Who would win in an endurance challenge that is just as difficult as a final? Darrell a previously undefeated endurance machine who is the reigning winner of Fresh Meat and a future 2 time champ or THE Jillian Zoboroski and a one and done rookie? Jillian is the little engine that could, going 5-1 for eliminations in her career (two on which came in the grueling exiles of Canada). Jillian could be a two time champion if not for Kina choosing to save her friend Ibis, by choosing Jillian who the team regarded as the stronger female competitor. She has shown she has grit and tenacity by winning a grueling “Turn Style” match that involved Landon and two much larger women and then beating a completely rested Wes and CJ shortly after. All three of her elimination wins on the Gauntlet two were also very psychical challenges that she who despite her size disadvantage. She is also very adept at puzzles which gave her the edge she need to win in exile. Jillian can be both a leader and a follower making her a very well rounded team player.
Eric N - The man with the skipping rope. This endurance freak and fitness model was one of the first real athletes on the show. He appeared in many workout videos and fitness promotions where “As each workout video progressed, while the other participants remained fully clothed, Nies invariably removed layers of clothing until bare chested” because the is what the people wanted. Nies is a two time challenge champion (and one time host). He was one on three male winners on Battle of the Sexes 2 that consisted of one of the toughest male casts of all time. Eric was consistently one of the top males on the team and in a season where you could be voted out for not performing he was never in the conversation due to his consistency and sportsmanship. Eric and Dan went 6-0 as team leaders in challenges, ahead of great competitors like Theo Von (4-2), Mark Long (3-2) and Brad (4-1). He is the everything man with his top strength being endurance and cardio.
Colin - Rounding out the team is arguably the best one and done competitor of all time in Colin Mortensen. He and Mark were far and away the top competitors for the dominant men’s team finishing 32 points ahead of the third place man (Jamie Murray 3x champ). I dug further into these numbers to filter for the top competitors on both teams (Getting in the top 2 for points in a mission). Out of 15 missions Colin was the top competitor 6 times, the only men to match that were Eric Nies and Antoine (was also was dead last for the men 3 times). Colin was the overall points leader for 9 of the 15 episodes with the next closest being Mark at 5. Of the 4 partner challenges, Colin was paired with a different partner every time and was part of the top pairs 4/4 times, showing his ability to work well with any partners. In the final Colin is the MVP for the men, he is a consistent positive voice and leader, saves the men in the puzzle section and is the fastest swimmer to the finish line.
Tyler Duckworth Fresh off his first win in Cutthroat, Tyler is back and better than ever. On Rivals, Tyler - along with partner Bananas - won 3 daily challenges: Hammock Crawl, Against the Current and Sawed Off, demonstrating Duckworth’s strength, endurance, and ability to work in a team.
Theresa Gonzalez In her 6th season on the show, Theresa was hungry for the win. She showed up with her original partner (Wes) and showed out, winning 3 challenges in the first 6 weeks: I Got You Babe, Open Arms and Don’t Forget About Me. She proved that she was strong, smart and brilliant swimmer. When she got eliminated right before the final, it was tough on her but she was able to come back a week later to replace Nia as Leroy’s ex… and she killed it, showing us all that she is a brilliant team member
Da’Vonne Rogers Following a tough rookie season partnered with Jozea on Final Reckoning, Da’Vonne is back to prove that she’s a competitor. After winning the very first challenge, Impending Dune, Da’Vonne is picked by Bear as a partner and shows that no matter who she is partnered with, she’s ready to compete and can set aside differences to work together. As Bear’s partner, she won the Eye in the Sky challenge and defeated 2 teams on the killing floor: Leroy/Shaleen & Jenna/Gus. In WotW1, Da’Vonne proved that she had communication skills, patience, endurance and a hell of a lot of heart.
Chet Cannon When you think of the Challenge Greats, Chet isn’t gonna be one of the guys that comes to mind initially, but he’s got a lot going for him that makes him an excellent team member! On BotS2, Chet competed with Sarah, JD, and Devyn as Team Brooklyn and managed to make it all the way to the final, winning 2 daily challenges along the way: Logged Out and Hunger Games. He and Sarah also managed to eliminate two teams (Brandon/Cara Maria and Mckenzie/Preston). He’s smart, politically savvy and works well with a team, making him a great addition to the team.
Pairs - Race out to the middle of the river, grab the boat, Kayak down the river in pairs, average time to finish 40min-1hour
Pairs- 10k run, 2,000 ft elevation increase, run up the trail where a puzzle with cities across the world needs to be put in order from the most northern point to the southern part, average time: 1 hour 20 min - 1 hour 34 min
Race up the trail/ huge mountain, elevation increases, 2hr 20 min- 2hr 52 min
Camp - bike 25 miles on stationary bike before you can sleep for the night, average time 1hr -31 min, Devyn finished 2:45 min
~4 ish hours of sleep for competitors
Final stage- climb a volcano with ice picks and snow boots (snowy conditions) tap the flag at the top, time stopped, air thin/elevation increases, average time 2hr-3hr, Devyn finished 4 1/2 hours
Evan - at his peak an indomitable force, one who balanced politics and athleticism flawlessly; at his worst, chubby.
Coral - an OG, one who has never lost an elimination. Even though her she dominated through politics, physically she was never one to back down.
Nehemiah - at his worst he worst he had a showmance with Beth, otherwise he was Wes’ closest ally and a physically apt competitor. He beat Kenny although he then Lost to Big Easy in I can which essentially should negate the elimination in its totality. He went on to win his next season. Rivals 2 he was apart of the old boy 3 person team: himself, Evan, and mini Evan
Avery - the only one not to have won on this team, her tenure is also the most ephemeral. I tried to see how well that hooking up dome elimination went and was curious if Johnny lost it for them or if Avery did, IDK. She’s stunning, charismatic, and has fire.
The Gauntlet III Final Description - Written pre-tournament by my partner in crime, u/MandyMTV
In ‘The Gauntlet III’ finale, titled Army Strong, each team was placed on a yacht half a mile off the Mexican Rivera.
The final began with a swim to the shore, then began a footrace, where all Challengers needed to complete both the race and various checkpoints, with the first full team to finish the last checkpoint and raise their team flag being declared the winner.
Set-Up: Teams began the race with one key and were given another key for each checkpoint they completed. The keys were needed in order to obtain instructions for further checkpoints. After the first checkpoint, teammates were connected together by chains for the remainder of the race.
Chill Out/Assembly Required: Players must jump into a large ice tub in order to retrieve 20 pieces of of a puzzle located at the bottom of the tub. Players must solve the puzzle to receive their next key.
Screw You: Players must unscrew an oversized wing nut until it has been removed from a track, containing the key to the next checkpoint.
Sliders: Players must work together to solve a slide puzzle.
Man Overboard: Players must sit on at platform in groups of three and use a pulley to move themselves across the gap.
I Dig You: Each team must dig through the sand to retrieve a treasure chest that contains a flag. Teams must raise their flag to win.
Josh Martinez - although not the strongest male competitor will always give it his all and support his partners
Kyle Christie - made a final in his rookie season beating the purge and a strong competitor like Tony and Leroy strong social game will do well in most finals I think
Nany Gonzales - almost made the War of the Worlds 2 getting beaten by Smashley in the last elim before the final she was one of the 3 us members I actually was rooting for Leroy Kam and Nany I want her to win one final
Sarah Rice - from what I’ve seen of Sarah 2 episodes of Rivals 3 and the money steal seems like she’s strategically sound and cutthroat will do anything to win I want to win another final with likeable teammates whose name isn’t Bananas.
[u/Upsidedown_Swan] - again, I will be providing logic because this user did not. At this point I have moved on from Dashboard Confessional and am blasting Lorde (my favorite artist) so I’m just gonna ride the waves here and do these pretty recklessly.
MITCH! I already wrote about Mitch today! He is a puzzle dude who seemed like a normal person but had questionable taste in people. By that I mean he hooked up with Aneesa’s cousin and idolized his own cousin, Cory. To pull a quote from democratic candidate Amy Klobuchar, “Who does that?!” He is fine competitively, and a good teammate, but not the strongest dude out there so I have no reason to believe he would fare better than Kyle or Josh. He’s probably less emotional than Josh though. He’s good at drinking fake beer in finals.
Pete Connolly made the final of his only season - Fresh Meat II. Yo, what gives, dude? Why didn’t you come back? Did you realize that you just made it onto a show with a recurring cast? Seriously, Pete was a good competitor (especially given the fact that his veteran partner was Jill Zoboroski LOL), and he more than held his own on his one season of the show. He’s only 32 years old, which is a similar age to Cara Maria and Zach, but I couldn’t imagine him ever being on a season again.
Rachel Robinson was dope! She was on the first ever same-sex battle of the exes team with Aneesa! She also dated Veronica. While all of this was going on, she won two seasons and made a third final. She is probably in the Top 10 women of all time athletically - seriously! She’s really good at finals and she was really good at dailies as well.
Jill Tuttle is Cohutta’s cousin. She is like the female Cohutta, but not as charming, and not as knowledgeable about the game they were playing. She also has a worse political game than Cohutta and isn’t as physically proficient. She has been on two total episodes of The Challenge. That makes her worse than Jozea, LaToya, and only slightly better than Alan Valdez. Do you even know who Alan is?! Exactly! Why would u/Upsidedown_Swan even pick Jill? Does this person know something we don’t? Is this person Jill in disguise?
Invasion of the Champions Final Description - thanks to the outstanding u/dtam3292 for the details!
The final was completed over three days. Competitors slept in the barren, semi-outdoor Shelter from the beginning of the season in between days. There was no running water, no bathroom, and they were given canned spam/soup/tuna to eat. Many actual distances of the runs/swims were not listed.
Day 1: Competitors must swim to an island. They then must solve a math/logic puzzle to receive a key. They then must paddle board back to the barge to unlock another (basic) puzzle with said key. Once the puzzle is completed, time stops. If they don’t complete the original math puzzle after an unspecified amount of time, then an unspecified time penalty will be added. (Cory/Nicole weren’t shown timing out until CT/Camilla had completed the entire day, although no actual time was shown.)
Time Buster 1 (takes place at night after day 1): Competitors have 1 hour to extract as much water as possible out of a pile of coconuts. They are given a stationary spike sticking out of a log to crack open the coconuts with. The winners can assess a 5-minute time penalty to the competitors of their choosing.
Day 2: Competitors must race over a mile into the jungle to complete checkpoints. The first checkpoint is an eating challenge with pond snails, horse urine fermented eggs, silkworms, and grasshoppers. Although it was never said, it looked like each player had to finish two plates and then wait for their partner to finish two plates as well. They then must take a two-wheeled cart with large puzzle pieces to the next checkpoint. There, they must ascend a rock using one angled rope underneath them and ropes above them to grab. If someone falls, they start from the beginning. They have 30 minutes to complete this task. Once done, they grab more puzzle pieces and take the cart to a swamp to grab the final puzzle piece from the water. They then take the cart to the last checkpoint, which is a logic puzzle with specified rules. They then run back to the Shelter for time to stop.
Time Buster 2 (takes place at night after day 2): Competitors must lace Thai prayer beads onto a wire spool for over six hours. The winners can give a 5-minute time penalty to the competitors of their choosing.
Day 3: Competitors must work together to carry one bamboo stick with hooks. They then use these hooks to collect buckets which they cannot touch and must carry to the next checkpoint. After dropping this off, they must run to a kayak where they will kayak for 10 miles. Time stops, and they take a break. For the final section, they have to grab onto a hanging bar suspended from a speedboat. They hold onto the bar until reaching a buoy, at which point they drop and swim as fast as possible to the shore, where they have a short run to the finish line. If they fall off early, they must swim farther.

Saturday, September 7, 2019 Belmont Park Race: 8 (4:43 PM EST Post) Grand Prix American Jockey Club Invitational Stakes Marconi is a $2 million son of Tapit who chased a runaway, record setting performer in his last and showed little two starts back. This gray colt now returns to an easier spot over his favorite track at a distance he likes, and most importantly, he’s beaten just about every horse in this field already….some multiple times……………You’re to Blame is another who showed little last time out but had rattled off seven straight bang up races in a row prior, including finishing just a length behind my top pick two back…………………..After being winless over the last 14 months, Highland Sky pulverized a restricted Stakes field in the mud in his last. I’m just wondering…exactly where did that race come from? And how much did the mud move him up?............................Honorable Mentions: Both Rocketry and Carlino have ability, yet both seemed to have cycled out of form. Either are a threat should they bounce back to past races. Race: 9 (5:15 PM EST Post) Jockey Club Oaks Invitational Stakes Lady Prancealot is just 3 for 14 in her career and has never run at this distance. That said, she possesses a strong late run so the stretch out in distance (logically) should only help. Also, her last race, where she was charging hard, late down the lane in a Grade: 1 run in 1:46.3 for nine furlongs, was excellent…Tepid pick in a tough race to figure………Love So Deep is a good looking daughter of the recently deceased Deep Impact (who stood for eye popping $354,000). She ran very well in her last two overseas and gets first time Lasix here….Huge threat to win it all…………Since being switched over to the turf, the regally bred Romantic Pursuit has finally started running to her breeding. Nice looking filly by “King of the (Sales) Ring” Medaglia d’Oro out of multiple (including the Alabama) Stakes winner Questing, she sports a record of 4-2-2-0 since the change in surfaces. She will be taking a huge step up in class but she is improving as her BSF would indicate (last 4: 75, 77, 79 and 81). ……………..Honorable Mentions: Edisa has run well in all six career starts in France, is 2 for 2 at this distance and could easily better this rating………………………Wonderment has disappointed in three starts in France thus far in 2019. But note, she was a Group: 1 winner last year and, you guessed it, she also goes first time Lasix in here…………………..If you are hunting a longshot, take a look at the stretch running Art of Almost. Albeit she is 0 for 5 on the turf, she has run solid races back to back in her last two. Race: 10 (5:47 PM EST Post) Jockey Club Derby Invitational Stakes It appears the longer the distance, the better Digital Age is. Yes, he was beaten by two different rivals in his last two races and both return in this spot. However, those two rivals; A Thread of Blue is stretching out and Henley’s Joy is somewhat inconsistent, both have “play against” angles in this spot…..Another tepid pick in another tough race to figure…………………….The aforementioned A Thread of Blue has good speed, draws the rail and took the $1 million Saratoga Derby field coast to coast (at 13-1) in his last while running his best BSF to date. However, this son of the gorgeous Hard Spun will have to go 2 ½ furlongs longer than he’s ever gone before………………When Henley’s Joy is right, he’s one tough hombre. The problem is he’s only been right 4 times in 12 career starts…………………….Honorable Mentions (and there are several due to the fact these horses coming from other countries are sooooooo tough to figure.) Spanish Mission is two necks shy of coming into this riding a three race win streak overseas and is still another who goes first time Lasix for his U.S. debut………………….Pedro Cara, who won his last two, and San Huberto, who is 3 for 5 in his career, both ship in from other parts of the world and both also go first time Lasix………………….Tone Broke made a splash in his turf debut in his last didn’t he? The son of Broken Vow came from behind to win a $400,000 (albeit restricted) Stakes race at Woodbine and his BSF have jumped noticeably from 2018 to 2019. Kentucky Downs Race: 7 (4:53 PM EST Post) Runhappy Turf Sprint Leinster is sharp as a tack right now while coming from behind and reeling off three straight wins including a supersonic 5 ½ furlongs at Saratoga last time out. Good looking colt by Majestic Warrior is 3 for 4 on the turf and the added distance in this spot should only help him………..Narrowest of margins over win machine Imprimis, who is 7 for 10 in his career. In fact, if you draw a line through his last, where he shipped to Royal Ascot and didn’t run all THAT bad, he would be 7 for 9. Stretch runner by Broken Vow shows higher Brisnet speed figures that Leinster and figures bang up here………………Although he’s run very well in all four starts, 2018 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Stormy Liberal is 0 for 2019. His speed figures have dropped slightly recently as well and although it might prove futile, I’m going to try to beat him in this spot……………Honorable Mentions: Totally Boss is also in peak form right now after winning three of his last four vs. lesser…………Wet Your Whistle had a four race win streak snapped by my top pick in his last. Although beaten fair and square in that race, this four year old by Stroll could easily bounce back in this spot. Race: 8 (5:28 PM EST Post) Three Chimneys Ladies Turf Stakes Mitchell Road has serious early speed and sports a record of 8-5-2-0 in her career. Good looking filly by English Channel had a four race win streak snapped by Champion Sistercharlie in her last. She will be the recipient of two of my more favorite angles, a drop in class and a cut back in distance as well. Also note, she is 2 for 2 at this distance….Solid choice……………Ms Bad Behavior has chased Vasilika in her last three races and other than being pulled up early in her last, has not been embarrassed by her by any stretch of the imagination. This daughter of Blame will meet no such rival in this spot and she has hit the board in 13 of 16 career starts…………….Simply Breathless won her first two U.S. starts nicely and may have found the 1 3/16ths miles of the Modesty Stakes in her last a little too far. Drops back to a mile, which is clearly her best distance, as her 4 for 8 record would indicate…………….Honorable Mentions: If Kallio, who ran a mile in 1:32.3 in her last race/win duplicates that effort here, she could surprise a few people in this spot……………………..Storm the Hill has been “right there” in her last two races and you get the third start off the layoff angle this daughter of Get Stormy. Race: 9 (6:01 PM EST Post) Spendthrift Ladies Sprint Oleksandra has won three of her last four, highlighted by coming from well back early on to take down the Smart and Fancy Stakes in her last at Saratoga. Five year old mare by Animal Kingdom ran into a minor traffic issue in deep stretch in that race but once she shook loose, she was visually impressive exploding through the final sixteenth of a mile……………….Tiny Tina has come from behind to beat lesser in four of her last five tries. Narrow margin for the place spot being she might need more distance as her 0 for 4 record at 6 ½ furlongs would indicate……………………May Lily is just 4 for 18 in her career but her last three races were all good and the final times in those three also suggest she could be among the vanguard at the end of this one………………………….Honorable Mentions: Morticia has been the post time favorite in her last six in a row but only rewarded her backers twice. This mare by Twirling Candy clearly has talent but I don’t like all the money she’s burned especially in her last three as she went off as the “stick” favorite……………….Cool Beans merits respect in this spot based off the fact that she’s never been off the board in 11 career tries…………Coexistence always gives a good account of herself and finished right behind May Lily twice recently. Race: 10 (6:35 PM EST Post) Calumet Farm Kentucky Turf Cup Arklow just missed in his last three in New York vs. better. Stretch runner by Arch should get the job done here……………..Campaign disappointed (me) in the Pacific Classic last time out. But this $675,000 son of Curlin handles the turf, drops in class and is 2 for 2 on this surface……………..As I’ve stated several times before, Bigger Picture is a threat in just about any turf race he runs in………………Honorable Mentions: Zulu Alpha also drops after chasing much better in his last three. Note, he was beaten fair and square by Bigger Picture three starts back…………………If you are hunting a longshot in here, take a gander at a few including Pillar Mountain, who usually fires his best shot and although clearly overmatched in his last, didn’t fair all THAT bad, My Boy Jack who possesses a strong late run and appears to be rounding into top form, and Botswana, who almost pulled off a colossal upset last time out and has hit the board in 8 of 11 career starts.……………………..Factor This and Hello Don Julio both have good speed but could hurt each other chances if they hook up early.

Peter O'Brien, who manages Segenhoe Stud, described the filly as Vegas Showgirl's 'best foal ever' and added that the result rewarded her owners' willingness to embark on an international breeding program with their band of high-class mares. "She has thrown leggy types, and Winx herself was a very leggy foal but she has lovely quality with very good limbs and really what you would expect," O'Brien said. **** Five time Grade: 1 winner Midnight Bisou, the top-rated older female in North America, will be offered Nov. 4 by ELiTE Sales at The November Fasig-Tipton Sales. Currently owned by Bloom Racing Stable, Madaket Stables, and Allen Racing, Midnight Bisou is an 11 time Graded Stakes winner from seven furlongs to 1 1/8 miles. She is undefeated in 2019 and has never finished off the board in 17 starts while earning $3,245,000. "Very rarely is an in-form, young, set-to-be crowned champion offered at public auction," said ELiTE Sales' Bradley Weisbord. "Here is an opportunity to buy the best filly in training, a five-time grade 1 winner, and a superstar physical. We're honored that Bloom Racing has chosen ELiTE to consign her."
2019.02.22 11:56 GeneralSeriesFirestorm Ep.2 Book a 2019 King of the Ring (general series)
Ok, so this tournament is going to be a huge 64 man tournament. Asuka, Lesnar, Ronda, and Bryan are out because they are champions. There will be 2 separate tournaments one for the women and one for the men. Tournament matches take place on RAW, SD Live, NXT and 205 Live. This tournament lasts for over 3 months with the semi-finals and the finals taking place at the KOTR PPV and the title Match taking place at Summerslam. Once a person is eliminated from the tournament they are free to challenge for the world titles at another date if they earn it. The official blocks for the tournament will not be announced and the matches for the next round will be revealed at the end of the round. This should hopefully build more anticipation towards the draw. Men's 1st round Seth Rollins def. Kassius Ohno.Fun match involving a SHIELD member facing a man who was supposed to be in the SHIELD. Rollins is hyped up as one of the favourites to win the tournament AJ Styles def. Elias.AJ is also another favourite and he wins with the calf crusher Finn Balor def. Rusev. Commentary doubt Balor's ability to win the tournament. Bu he survives the much bigger Rusev Braun Strowman def. Killian Dayne. Dayne gets in a good showing and pushes Braun but he is eventually put down. Drew McIntyre def. Jeff Hardy.Jeff Hardy is gone in the 1st round. Commentary play up that McIntyre may play spoiler to the more popular superstars Samoa Joe def. Kurt Angle.Angles run of bad luck continues as he falls to Joe. Joe looks like a monster Kofi Kingston def. Big E.Highly emotional match, Kofi riding a wave of momentum following the elimination chamber. He beats E but Big E looks hurt after the match. Did he go to far in his quest for gold. Woods and E walk away without Kofi Andrade def. Mark Andrews.Quick but fast match. Both men seem evenly matched but Zelina Vega proves to be the difference maker Rey Mysterio def. Cesaro. Rey has to use his speed to avoid he much stronger Cesaro and is eventually able to get him in a roll up. Randy Orton def. Sin Cara. RKO out of nowhere. Orton moves on Bobby Lashley def. Lio Rush.Lio pays for costing Lashley the IC title as Bobby hits not 1 not 2 but 3 spears in a row to win the match. Shinsuke Nakamura def. Noam Dar. Shinsuke gets a bit of momentum beating the up and coming Dar The Miz def. Goldust. Miz gets a pretty straight forwards win over the bizarre one. Miz cuts a promo hyping Shane's match Mustafa Ali def. Dean Ambrose. Poor Dean Ambrose. His run of bad luck continues but this is a huge win for Mustafa Ali who looks to go far n the tournament Dolph Ziggler def. Erick Young. A rare appearance by a wild Eric Young. Ziggler overcomes SAnity and picks up the win Kevin Owens def. Bobby Roode.Kevin Owens makes his surprise return defeating Bobby Roode. Owens is full despicable heel and powerbombs Roode on the apron post match Bray Wyatt def. R Truth. Bray Wyatt also makes his return but he looks different. He beats Truth but walsk away with a sad look on his face Lars Sullivan def. Brian Kendrick.Lars finally stops lurking to make his debt. Kendrick hypes this up as his last time to become great. He gets flattened Aleister Black def. Baron Corbin.Showcase match for Black who gets a quick win with the Black Mass Velveteen Dream def. John Cena. Massive upset. The big match that both men wanted is won by the Velveteen Dream. Cena is now free to go after Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 Jonny Gargano def. Shelton Benjamin. Jonny does work this match as a heel as does Benjamin. He catches Benjamin in a mid air superkick to get the win Tommaso Ciampa def. TJP. Ciampa again dominates and picks up a easy win Ricochet def. Keith Lee.This is a match that has happened a lot over the independent scene and these two have amazing chemistry with each other. Ricoceht here is able to overcome the odds and defeat Lee. Commentary bring up the fact that Ricochet is impressive but they don't think he has it to win against tougher competition. Adam Cole def. Xavier Woods. Still shaken by what happened earlier neither Kofi or Big E are at ringside and so Woods falls pray to the numbers advantage. What would have happened if the new day was their. Matt Riddle def. Jinder Mahal. Mahal tries to calm down the Bro. Doesn't work as Riddle knock out Mahal in seconds Buddy Murphy def. No Way Jose. Pretty simple match where Murphy represents the cruiser weight division in a dominate way Cedric Alexander def. Sheamus. Big upset win. Alexander picks up the much larger superstar and hits the lumbar check Akira Tosawa def. Drew Gulak. Akira proving that he is one of the top forces in the cruiser weight division. Kalisto def. Lince Dorado.Big flippy match here with Kalisto wining due to the experience advantage Pete Dunn def. Tyler Breeze.UK represents with a big win. Tyler Bate def. Trent Seven.The two friends clash in a super hard hitting match up. Bate eventually topples Seven with a tiger drive. The two hug after the match WALTER def. Shane McMahon.The best in the world gets destroyed in 5 minutes. No offence for Shane WALTER dominates Women's 1st round Becky Lynch def. Tamina.Everyone's favourite comes out to start the match. She takes care of Tamina pretty easily but at some point in the match she tweaks her Knee. She gets over this quickly and taps Tamina out. But it is unclear how this will effect the rest of her tournament Charlotte def. Billie Kay.Easy win for the queen Charlotte looks dominate and taps out Kay Sasha Banks def. Dakota Kai.Good showing for Kai she has a lot of potential. Sasha also has to fight through injury but gets the job done Bayley def. Deonna Purrazzo.Purrazzo surprises Bayley early. Bayley comes back and wins with the Bayley to Belly. She goes for a hug after the match but Purrazzo says no. This tournament means that much Nia Jax def. Kaitlyn.Kaitlyn makes her return and for a moment she out powers Nia. But Jax gets some serious heel heat and beats the returning superstar Ember Moon def. Alica Fox.Alica attempts her comedy stick and Ember makes her pay in just a few minutes. Again this tournament is serious Alexa Bliss def. Aliyah.This is the match that formally establishes that Alexa Bliss is a baby face. I know she is better as a heel but she has been doing the same thing for so long and fans are behind her it might be tie just for a year or so to change things up with Bliss who wins with the twisted bliss which she uses a lot more now that she is a face Natalya def. Dana Brooke.The incredible two week story line comes to a head between these two superstars. Natalya overcomes the odds in a gripping contest to get the big win. \******1/4* Carmella def. Chelsea Green.Chelsea Green is awesome but she probably won't stay so its best to keep the momentum with Carmella. Lets not have Corey on commentary for this one. Naomi def. Tarnara Conti.Naomi again is another one under heat which is why she could do with a bit of momentum. Conti has a good showing but can't get the win Mandy Rose def. Sonya Deville.The two partners square off. Sonya is not willing to hurt her friend but Mandy docent wait. She is in it for the glory. Sonya quickly over powers her proving to be the dominate member of the group but Mandy cheats to win. Sonya looks upset but Mandy trys her best to make good and all seems fine Peyton Royce def. Ashley Rayne.The better of the two Iconics gets a big win beating one of TNA's best Ruby Riot def. Racheal Evers.Ruby Riot deserves the world and she deserves a lot more than what she has been getting. She starts off her tournament with a big win Mickie James def. Nina Samuels.Mickie James hypes up that this might be her last big opportunity to reach the title. She starts off by using her experience to get the win Shayna Baszler def. Xia Brookside.Shayna is a best and dominates Brookside for a quick win Kairi Sane def. Michelle McCool.Michelle wrestles as a heel but Kairi overcomes Io Shairi def. Liv Morgan.Io does just as well with a big spotlight victory over Liv Morgan. Kairi does help her get the advantage over the Riot Squad Bianca Belair def. Vanessa Borne.Bianca proves that she isn't overrated. (Ok now I'm gonna die). She gets a easy win over Borne. She is a heel by the way. That she Candice LeRae def. Mercedes Martinez.Again not to much to this one. Just another showcase match for Candice establishing who she is Toni Storm def. Sarah Logan.Battle of the headbutts. Storm wins obviously because she is the UK Champ and is set up as a threat to win it all. Rhea Ripley def. Kelly Kelly.The living embodiment of the WWE Diva gets destroyed by Rhea who is presented as a dominating monster Marina Shafir def. Molly Holly.Holly comes back but is no match for one of Ronda Rouseys buddy's. Ronda is at ringside watching this Jessamyn Duke def. Eva Marie.Eva Marie is back and this totally is not because I found it hard to find 64 Women's wrestlers who could legitimately be in this. Nikki Bella def. Isla Dawn.Here come the Bella's. Yay right. Nikki picks up the win. Who is going to stop the longest raining divas champion Brie Bella def. Maryse.Follow on from the Bryan vs Miz feud from the summer. Brie finally gets redemption over Maryse. Kay Lee Ray def. Jinny.2 of UKs best go at it with Kay Lee Ray getting the win Viper def. Beth Pheonix.Big power match here. Beth Phoenix comes out as a surprise appearance. However she does the honours for Viper who gets big heel heat. Nikki Cross def. Killer Kelly.2 crazy's go at it. Nikki Cross gets the big win as she is probably the most well known one of the 2. But they continue brawling after the match and head to the back Lacy Evans def. Maria Kennelis.2 classy lady's going at it. But Lacy has more to prove and is therefore willing to do more to win Kacy Catanzaro def. Eve.Again another case of the returning superstar losing but they have to because we can't keep relying on the past. Ricochet's flippy girlfriend wins Lana def. Zelina Vega.This will probably be the worst match on the 1st round which is why it only gets 2 minutes. Lana wins because she is more popular Xia Li def. Little Miss Roxy.The chinsese superstar gets the big win to end the 1st round Men's 2nd round AJ Styles def. Tyler Bate.Bate is clearly overwhelmed by the situation. AJ dominates the opening of the match. Bate finally gets vicious and intense and has a bit comeback. But the Styles clash eventually wins it in a hard fought match. AJ raises Bates hand post match Seth Rollins def. Tomasso Champia.A longer match. Tomasso shocks Rollins by how dominate he is. But Rollins eventually pulls through and wins it Finn Balor def. Bray Wyatt.The match starts but Wyatt has a scared look on his face. He leaves the ring and loses by count out. Balor looks confused and Wyatt looks sad Buddy Murphy def. Dolph Ziggler.Big win for Buddy representing the cruiser weights. Ziggler puts him over and Murphy is starting to make believers Kevin Owens def. Akira Tosawa.Owens attacks Tosawa before the start of the match and powerbombs him on the apron. Despite the refs advice Tosawa tells the ref to start the match and then is immediately nailed with a powerbomb and loses Aelister Black def. Andrade.Similar to the match they had on SD Live. Andrade takes Black to his limit but again Black has his number and nails a mid air black mass for the win. Velveteen Dream def. The Miz.Big clash of styles Dream beats Miz with the purple rainmaker. No shenanigans in this match but Dream beats another former world champion Kofi Kingston def. Randy Orton.Kofi Kingston faces the man who derailed his 2009 push. Kofi kicks out of a RKO and eventually nails the trouble in paradise for the win. His intensity is getting him through everything but at what cost Jonny Gargano def. Kalisto.Again Gargano works heel. He grounds Kalisto preventing him from flying and eventually taps him out Samoa Joe def. Lars Sullivan.Clash of the Titans here. Joe puts Sullivan through the announcers table. Joe makes the count back but Lars doesn't Pete Dunn def. Shinsuke Nakamura.Fun strong style match between the stiffest wrestlers in the UK and Japan respectively. Arm Bars a trades as are forearms. Bitter end counters the Kinsasha for the win Mustafa Ali def. Rey Mysterio.Take to the skys. Mustafa and Rey go head to head in a lightning fast match. 045 for the win and a so of respect post match WALTER def. Braun Strowman.Oh my lord what a match. Braun finally meets his match. Someone who can beat him in size but can outmatch him in athleticism and technical work. WALTER gets a huge win and is now the odds on favourite to win. Ricochet def. Cedric Alexander.Again another flippy match. Alexander reminds us just how good he really is and takes Ricochet to the limit but the king of flight wins it in 20. Drew McIntyre def. Matt Riddle.Two very similar styles clash in a extremely hard hitting match. Clay more wins it but both men need help leaving the ring Adam Cole def. Bobby Lashley.No Lio Rush due to how badly Lashley beat him up so yet again Undisputed Era help Cole win it with the shining wizard. Women's 2nd round Becky Lynch def. Natalya.Becky is the obvious favourite however being stuck in the sharpshooter is not good for Becky's legs. She powers through this match but will she be okay Charlotte def. Kacy Caranzaro.Kacy puts in another good performance. Charlotte doesn't take her seriously but soon regrets that. She eventually taps her out but it was a close one Sasha Banks def. Jessamyn Duke.2 rival horsewomen face off against each other. Sasha gets the win but it attack by Shafir post match but Bayley makes the save setting up the next match Bayley def. Marina Shafir.After the match goes longer Shafir and Duke leave. Alexa Bliss def. Xia Li.Li dominates Alexa who has to work from behind to win with the twisted bliss. Toni Storm def. Rhea Ripley.The two UK rivals face off against each other. Again Rhea dominates the early part of the match but Storm fights back. She wins with the tiger bomb but Rhea attacks her post match to get her heat back. Shayna Baszler def. Kay Lee Ray.Kay Lee Ray is good but at this point only the bet are making it through and Shayna is becoming one of the favourites to make it near the end. Nia Jax def. Lana.Oh Dear Ember Moon def. Brie Bella.Nice win for ember moon beating one of the Bellas. Commentary are hyping her as one of the dark horse picks to win it. Kairi Sane def. Io Shairi.I would expect this to be the best match of the round. These two have great chemistry and they should have a nice long 18 minute showcase which Sane wins. Bianca Belair def. Peyton Royce.Peyton's run comes to a end. Bianca is simply to gifted to lose to her Nikki Bella def. Mickie James.Mickie's fairy tale ending comes to a early stop. This should hopefully get some heat on Nikki. Also no Alexa or Alica at ringside which is something commentary should put over. Ruby Riot def. Carmella.The slightly awkward Carmella run comes to a end as Ruby wins decisively. Lacy Evans def. Nikki Cross.The classicist superstar vs the "nastiest" superstar. The two recent NXT call ups face off but again its Lacy's superior intellect that beats Nikki's brawn. Candice LeRae def. Viper.Candice is proving to be one of the bigger underdog stroylines as David slays Goliath. Mandy Rose def. Naomi.The feud of the centenary takes another stop at the KOTR tournament. Mandy Rose has somehow made it to round 3 and she is proving to be one of the most hated people in this tournament Men's 3rd round Finn Balor def. Velveteen Dream.This should be a really fun 1st round match. Dream is about to beat another former world champion when Bray Wyatt comes out and hands Finn the victory. Balor looks shocked but takes it. Seth Rollins def. Samoa Joe.Another impressive performance by Rollins as he counters the clutch into a roll up. Rollins moves forwards as one of the likely winners. Aleister Black def. WALTER.The monsters are being slayed all across the tournament. Aleister Black gets a huge win landing the knockout blow on Walter who leaves furious post match. Ricochet def. Drew McIntyre.Again these two have amazing chemistry together. The match stays as a game of cat and mouse for a while but eventually Ricochet shows off his underrated strength to get the win with a brain buster Buddy Murphy def. Mustafa Ali.One of my favourite Cruiser weight feuds continues as these two clash again but Mustafa Ali doesn't have a answer for Buddy Murphy. Ali thinks that he has all of Buddy's moves scouted but he wasn't ready for a top rope Murphy's law which is what wins it. AJ Styles def. Adam Cole.Tow former Bullet Club members go at it. However this time Gallows and Anderson come down to help AJ. Undisputed Era no longer have the numbers advantage and so Cole's run comes to end a courtesy of a phenomenal forearm Pete Dunn def. Jonny Gargano.Dunn tortures Gargano but being a sneaky heel Jonny is able to get the upper hand. But Dunn counters a slingshot spear into a forearm and follows with the bitter end for the win Kofi Kingston def. Kevin Owens.Owens try's attacking Kofi before the bell but Kofi has it scouted and dodges the attacks. After a long fought match Kofi yet again wins it and Owens is sent home Women's 3rd round Becky Lynch def. Bianca Belair.Bianca shows off her viscous side attack Lynch's leg. But she is no match for the man who wins it. Bianca is proven to be overrated (sigh) Charlotte def. Nikki Bella.Probably two of the biggest heels in the tournament outside of Mandy and Jax. Charlotte and Nikki have very good chemistry from their matches in 2015. Charlotte wins with the natural selection putting that move over Bayley def. Sasha Banks.The two best friends clash. Bayley is all hugs and Sasha is all fists. She tries cheating on several occasions and Corey Graves nearly loses his mind. Bayley starts getting into it. In the end however Bayley simply has Sasha's number and wins with a top rope Bayley to Belly. After the match Bayley goes for a hug. Sasha thinks about it when Duke and Shafir attack. Becky and Charlotte run out to make the save. Sasha hugs Bayley but then Charlotte attacks Lynch's leg leaving her hurt. Shayna Baszler def. Candice LeRae.Shayna Baszler crushes another dream as Candice has to exit the tournament. Commentary says that Becky and Charlotte may be worried about the wrong horsewoman. Alexa Bliss def. Lacy Evans.These two play off the segment that they shared on RAW. Lacy is a patronising heel throughout the match but her antiques costs her. So far the goddess has flown under the radar but now may be her time to shine Toni Storm def. Kairi Sane.The two winners of the may young classic fight against each other. Toni time prevails but it should be a great match. Toni Storm may have had the hardest route the the quarter finals but she has made it Nia Jax def. Ember Moon.The evil Nia Jax beats another fan favourite in Ember Moon. She may be the most likely to win Mandy Rose def. Ruby Riot.Mandy Rose has made it to the quarter finals. Hopefully she is getting pure heel heat which is so hard to find these days. Men's 4th round Kofi Kingston def. Buddy Murphy.Kofi Kingston beats the Juggernaut in a highly competitive match with multiple false finishes. Kofi is really getting desperate to win it this time and gets really physical to do it. He looks like a man possessed AJ Styles def. Finn Balor.Dream match round two goes similarly to the first match. Both men order the Club to stay in the back no matter what. Wyatt comes down to ringside to try and get involved but Balor beats him up not wanting Wyatt's help this distraction allows AJ to pick up the win. Wyatt looks distraught post match and is crying heavily. He attacks AJ injuring is ribs. He is yelling that he is sorry to Balor. The Club run out but Bray disappears in a cloud of smoke. Balor doesn't know what to do Seth Rollins def. Pete Dunn.Rollins injures a beating but unlike Gargano he faces it like a man and overcomes the pain to land a stomp for the win Ricochet def. Aleister Black.NXT's last two representatives clash in a typical NXT style of match which Ricochet wins with the 630 Women's 4th round Becky Lynch def. Shayna Baszler.Ok this match should go long. Like 25 minutes long and 15 of those minutes should be Baszler having Lynch in some kind of Leg hold. Similar to how Suzuki ripped Tanahashi's leg apart for half a hour at new beginning last year. It should be getting uncomfortable by the end. Becky should be in a world of pain as her leg has been worked over for 15 minutes. But she wills herself on and refuses to tap out ever again. She counters a arm bar into a roll up for the win. Baszler continues working the leg post match before the whole locker room have to pull her off of Becky Charlotte def. Mandy Rose.Yeah so while Becky had to work through agony for 25 minutes Charlotte beats the easiest competitor in the last 8 in about 5 minutes. Now that's a slap in the face Toni Storm def. Alexa Bliss.2 girls who have flown under the radar to this point. Storm gets a huge victory as she makes it to the final 4 of the tournament and is looking like a star in the process. Nia Jax def. Bayley.Another Nia Jax match and another fan favourite superstar bowing out of the tournament. This is becoming a familiar sight. King of the Ring 2019 Kofi Kingston def. AJ Styles.Rematch from Smackdown a few weeks ago. AJ's ribs are still hurt from Bray Wyatt's attack but Kofi doesn't show AJ the same amount of mercy that AJ showed him. AJ obviously makes his way back into it. Kofi starts making some heels moves. But he pauses and stops. He goes back to fight fairly but is almost caught in a roll up. Kofi wins the match fare and square countering a phenomenal forearm into a trouble in parricide in mid air. Kofi helps AJ out of the ring and the New Day come out to help him. The band is back together Ricochet def. Seth Rollins.This should be awesome with Ricochet getting a huge upset win over Seth. Neither men wrestle to intensely but it picks up a bit towards the end. Rollins goes for the phoenix splash but crashes and burns which is what costs him as he falls victim to the 630. We are set to get a flippy finale for sure. Becky Lynch def. Nia Jax.Leading up to this match Becky's health should be called into question and it should be a running story line on RAW and SD with her trying to get cleared. Obviously Nia shows no mercy and goes right after Becky's leg. For some reason Becky is obsessed with trying to slam Nia. Becky does get back into the match and drops Nia. But Nia punches her in the face. But this only fires up Lnych more. Another punch to the face but Becky gets right in Nia's face. Another punch Becky starts walking into them. She finally lays off a punch off her own which flaws Nia Jax. She locks in the dis arm her which wins it in shocking fashion for Becky. Charlotte def. Toni Storm.While not as hard as Nia Toni Storm provides a big hurdle for Charlotte to face. Charlotte surprisingly dominates the early parts of the match. But Toni gets a huge comeback for about 5 minutes where she takes the queen to her absolute limit and she hits the tiger driver but CHARLOTTE KICKS OUT. However, Toni tweaks her knee shades of what has been happening with Becky. Charlotte attacks the leg horribly and Toni is in a lot of pain. Despite her best efforts Toni taps out. Commentary say that this may be a preview for what Charlotte does to Becky but can she even physically tap out. Charlotte def. Becky Lynch.Ok here is the big match CHARLOTTE VS BECKY. Becky tries to get the win early and both of them go back and forth trying to lock in their various submissions. Becky actually takes over control during the opening 5 or so minutes. I think at this point people might be getting sick of the constant Becky sells the leg and comes back get up. For most of the match Charlotte tries to go after the leg but Becky has it scouted. But eventually Charlotte gets her opportunity and goes t work and tortures Becky Lynch. But she will not tap out. Becky hits a becksploder of the top rope but cant get into the cover!. Becky tries to lock in the disarm-er but can't get it locked in. She tries a 2nd time and finally gets it in but right before CHARLOTTE TAPS Becky's leg gives out. Natural selection. 12..3. The life is sucked out of the arena and then the boo's come in. Charlotte goes to Smack down to win the title from Asuka. Becky now has to work back to try and get a match with Ronda Rousey Kofi Kingston def. Ricochet.Ok I know Charlotte vs Becky is the biggest match but I want to send the crowd home on a high note. Kofi comes out to his SOS theme song with all of the New Day members behind him. Ricochet comes out dressed as a angle or something. They start of fast. However after Ricochet lands on his feet a few to many times. Ricochet lands in a superman pose but Kofi intercepts him and goes to work. But he regains himself. They go for 25 minutes. Kofi kicks out of the 630 first person ever to kick out of that move. Trouble in Paradise wins it. Kofi has done it he has climbed up the mountain. 11 long years baby. He nows goes onto Summerslam to face Daniel Bryan Good luck to my other opponents. Hope you like this all feedback is good feedback
2017.03.29 15:54 MatthewMirThe Essential Wrestlemania Match Collection: The best and most significant Wrestlemania matches (Part 3 - 23 to 32)
Hey wrestling fans, I thought I’d post this earlier because if I posted it later this week it wouldn’t any attention due to all the commotion of Wrestlemania Week.. As you know Wreddit I make a retrospective list of matches from a certain superstar, but in this case we’re looking at our third and final part of the Wrestlemania Matches. Over the last couple of months I made several lists of Essential Career Matches. You can either access them all through this link or here:
This week we’re doing the third and final part of my three-part series on The Grandest Stage of Them All, ,The Showcase of the Immortals, The Show of Shows, The Granddaddy of them All, The Greatest Spectacle in Sports Entertainment and of course The Ultimate Thrill ride - Wrestlemania (Specifically Wrestlemania 23 to Wrestlemania 32)
These collection of matches comes from Dave Meltzer (his matches feature his ratings for matches rated 3* Stars and matches that I believe that are also good too, I’ll try add the ratings to those matches as well.
If you have any suggestions for matches that could be included simply privately message me or add a comment on this and I will considerate it. Please read the entire list before commenting saying I’ve forgotten a match.. Also since a few people have commented on these posts saying 'stop throwing lists at us with no information' so on a few matches I’ve added a little bit of a backstory for new fans/fans of who haven’t seen the matches, some match details do contain spoilers, so you have been warned, but really if you’re getting up in arms about a match spoiler from several years ago that’s not my problem. I have also tried to add a link to each match as well; videos come from WWE Network, YouTube and Daily Motion. It’s hard finding most of his non-WWE matches, I apologise for that – if you can find links for matches listed simply comment and I’ll add them to this list. Lastly, and most importantly, I used Meltzer’s ratings as a guide but make sure to make your own opinion (or rating in this case) about the matches. Just cause he gives something a 3, doesn't mean that it isn't a 5 to you! If you do not like this list because I’ve based it off ratings, that is not my problem. Alright, now lets start the list:
The Undertaker Vs Batista – World Heavyweight Championship – 4* - This was Takers year, he had won the 2007 Royal Rumble, he put on two great tag matches with Shawn, Cena and Batista and then he started his great feud with Batista. This was only the first chapter in their feud and if you keep reading this list you’ll see how good these matches were. This was also Undertaker’s first World Championship win in almost 5 years, making it extra special. This was absolutely my match of the night at Wrestlemania 23, I believe it should have main evented. There’s rumors that after the match finished Batista walked backstage and screamed ‘Follow that’ in frustration of not being the main event.
Shawn Michaels Vs Ric Flair - Career Threatening Match - 3 ½* - This match had a retirement stipulation to it; where if Ric Flair lost he would have to retire. This isn’t the best wrestling match of all time, but it’s one of the saddest and storytelling matches of all time. Honestly, Ric Flair has had one of the best careers of all times with so many endless classics its no wonder why people consider of the greatest wrestler of all time. The whole weekend was super special for Flair – he was inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame, he had this match and then the next night on Raw, he was given a farewell speech which resulted in tons of past wrestlers, present wrestlers, crew members and everyone in the back including Undertaker and Vince McMahon to come out and pay their respects to him.
Floyd Mayweather Vs Big Show – No Disqualification Match – 3* - Over a decade later since the infamous Bigelow Vs Taylor match, WWE decided to have another big celebrity match up. This time it would feature arguably the best boxer in the world against the World’s Largest Athlete. This match actually is a lot of fun, and isn’t as bad as people expected it to be, the returning Big Show who looked much slimmer to when we last saw him was a positive as well. Also Wrestlemania Rewind discussing the match.
The Undertaker Vs Edge – World Heavyweight Championship – 4 ¼* - This was the main event of Wrestlemania 24, an almost year long feud between Undertaker and Edge, and now finally they’d have a one on one match at the biggest stage of them all. This would be their first match in their feud, but it’s nothing short of amazing. It’s really good to see over the years Edge grow from a tag-team wrestler into this great single performer going one on one with one of the best of all time – The Undertaker. Following Takers match at Wrestlemania 22 with Henry, you can seen an improvement in his Wrestlemania streak matches.
The Undertaker Vs Shawn Michaels - 4 ¾* - Not only one of the best WWE Matches of all time, but one of the best matches in professional wrestling of all time. Whenever there’s post on Reddit (or in general) regarding what matches should be 5 star matches this match is always commented. If you’re going to watch any match on this list, choose this match. I could fill up this whole post discussing the history between these two men from the 90’s all the way to this match, but I want to keep it pretty short. This is a lot of peoples favourite match of all time and for good reason. The comparisons of darkness and the light, heaven and hell, good vs evil and so much more surround this match. Simply it’s two of the greatest of all time competing at the biggest show of the year. It’s interesting to note that this match was also going to be placed 3rd on the card with only 10-15 minutes, which pissed them both off enough to get the match pushed down the card and gave them the objective of trying to steal the show, which they did. Also, Wrestlemania Rewind discussing the match. This is probably my favorite Wrestlemania Rewind, the interactions between both men after the match with Vince McMahon and Michael Hayes is perfect.
Triple H Vs Sheamus – 3 ¼* - It was really good to see as Triple H’s career started to wind-down from full time wrestling, that he would work a program with a newer superstar like Sheamus. Many people believe this was because they were ‘gym buddys’, even so they still put on a really fun match and I honestly reckon Sheamus is one of the most underrated wrestlers on the roster today.
John Cena Vs Batista – WWE Championship – 3 ½* - Five years after each man won their world championships at Wrestlemania 21, they’d finally meet in one of the main events of a Wrestlemania in a decent match, however I believe it was doomed from the start with the winner being very predictable.
The Undertaker Vs Shawn Michaels – No Count, No Disqualification, Streak Vs Career Match – 4 ¾* - Just when you thought nothing could give TakeShawn from Wrestlemania 25 a run for its money, you get the rematch of a lifetime – this time with the stipulation of if Shawn loses his career is over. Back to back matches, and two equally back-to-back critically acclaimed 5 star matches. Many people still to this day argue whether this match is better than their previous match at Wrestlemania 25 (which I’d love to hear if you agree in the comments). The show of respect after the match with each men shaking hands and hugging, followed by Shawn’s emotional send off is quite the scene. Additionally I’ll include Shawn Michaels following night Raw Farewell Speech.
Edge Vs Alberto Del Rio – World Heavyweight Championship – 3 ½* - I believe this is Edge's final match in WWE before retiring due to neck injuries, and what a way to go out as World Heavyweight Champion on the biggest stage in wrestling - Wrestlemania. I still wish that it was Ziggler instead of Del Rio in this position, but I’m still glad that Edge’s final WWE match is him in a World Heavyweight Championship match at Wrestlemania, successfully retaining his championship.
Cody Rhodes Vs Rey Mysterio – 2 ½* - &Arguably the best match at Wrestlemania that year from non-part timers. it is one of Cody Rhodes best matches period, and one of the last matches in Rey Mysterio’s WWE career that stands out as really good. This would be the start to a really good year for Cody Rhodes in the mid-card.*
The Undertaker Vs Triple H –Hell in a Cell Match – 4 ¾* - This was match was the third in their Wrestlemania series. It was billed as ‘The End of an Era – Hell in a Cell match’ with the special guest referee: Shawn Michaels. Three men that once defined the Attitude Era, would get to put on a great performance on the grandest show of them all Wrestlemania. The match is fun, and really showcases both mens best elements. The final sequence of the match, and the post-match celebrations/farewells is satisfying closing one of the best eras. Many people, believe this is where Undertaker should have retired, on top 20-0.
CM Punk Vs Chris Jericho – WWE Championship – 3 ¾* - In one of the three main-events of Wrestlemania 28, it was slated in second position and it arguably the best wrestling match on the card; these two men would put on absolute great match with each other. A lot of people complained at the time and still now that the WWE Championship should always be the main event, and I can understand why even CM Punk himself was annoyed that this match didn’t main event Wrestlemania.
The Rock Vs John Cena – ‘Once in a Lifetime’ – 3 ¾* - This match was built up for more than a year and it was set in stone one year in advance. It was billed as ‘Once in a Lifetime’. It main-evented a stacked card which also featured Jericho/Punk for the WWE Championship and also Triple H/Undertaker End of an Era Hell in a Cell match, and still did decent. The match was really fun, and it was good to see Cena play the ‘heel’ role during this match for the crowd. People seem to negative about this match, and I really don’t know why – it was good to have the Rock back, Cena was coming into his prime and was proving he could work a decent match with anyone. It did great business, making it the biggest Wrestlemania PPV buy rate to date I believe, if this is wrong comment on this.
The Undertaker Vs CM Punk – 4 ½* - In one of Punk’s last big matches he would go on to face another part-timer in one of the Big-4 PPV’s, and he and Taker stole the show on a very boring Mania card. In hindsight, for Punk who had just finished a historic 434 WWE Championship reign and feud with The Rock, where else could he go? Simply put they put him against the biggest Wrestlemania draw in the modern era – The Undertaker. 2 months before this match happened, ‘Takers former manager and long time friend Paul Bearer passed away and they used that real life story aspect to sell this match.
John Cena Vs The Rock – WWE Championship – 3 ½* - So yeah, the match that was billed as ‘Once in a Lifetime’ was going to happen again in the main-event back to back Mania’s. Plenty of people shit on this match, me included honestly – I generally don’t like this match, I feel as if they could’ve done more maybe they could’ve gone with the triple threat match with Punk included or maybe they could’ve even had Rock face someone else (maybe Ryback who could’ve used the rub to become WWE Champion because he was over with the crowd), and yeah I know Ryback wasn’t the best wrestler but it could’ve pushed him as a top-star which WWE could’ve used at the time. Hell if they wanted to they could've possibly gone a Rock/HHH or Rock/Brock route.
Daniel Bryan Vs Triple H – Winner Advances into the Main Event for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship – 4 ¼* - This feud started back in August of 2013, when Triple H turned heel and screwed Daniel Bryan out of the WWE Championship. The Authority believed that Bryan was a ‘B+ Player’ and didn’t deserve the main event spotlight. Probably Triple H's greatest Wrestlemania match (besides the Wrestlemania 20 match), this is anything short of a 5 star match for me, I’m really surprised it was rated a 4 ¼* making it lower rated the main event for this Wrestlemania. It was unbelievable the chemistry between these two; two different styles of wrestling come together to make a great bond. This would be Bryan's first match of the night, and he had a long way to go before he could make history.
John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt – 3 ½* - This Wrestlemania (and more the following Wrestlemania) helped usher in a new era of wrestlers who came from WWE’s developmental territory – NXT. One of the biggest stars from NXT was Bray Wyatt, who’s character is a ‘scary cult leader’. The WWE trusted him so much they placed him in a feud against the biggest star of the modern-era John Cena. Many people were disappointed with the result of this match, but lets not take it away from either man, this is a really fun match. Wyatt tries the whole match to try make Cena ‘join the darkside’ and turn heel and do things he usually wouldn’t. The crowd participation of singing and waving their arms to the tune of ‘He’s got the whole world in his hands’ also is a great little touch for this match.
Brock Lesnar Vs The Undertaker – 1 ½* - Brock Lesnar would do the most shocking thing in the modern era when he conquered the Undertakers Undefeated Streak at Wrestlemania which had be going on for almost 20+ years, thus becoming the '1 in 21 and 1'. If Lesnar needed anything to establish him as a 'legitimate fighter' in WWE during his return in 2012 this definitely helped skyrocket him to the promise land. Everything after this fight would go on to prove that he would demolish Cena to become champion, then easily defeat nearly all his opponents with multiple suplexes. Now in my opinion Taker should’ve probably retired at Wrestlemania 28 when he went 20-0, or right here when lost to Lesnar and his streak.
Daniel Bryan Vs Batista Vs Randy Orton – WWE World Heavyweight Championship – 4 ½* - ‘The Miracle Kid – The Miracle on Bourbon Street!’ a great call from announcer Michael Cole. The saga of Daniel Bryan's chase to become the WWE Champion would pay off in this match, and oh boy - those months of getting angry, seeing the Authority always win and complaining online absolutely worth it for this moment. Batista who returned and won the Royal Rumble match wasn’t looked fondly on by the crowd, but WWE came to their senses and helped make this Wrestlemania main event one of the most memorable ones of all time. It’s almost like somehow every 10th Wrestlemania WWE pull off something magical with wrestlers who aren’t the ‘norm’. Wrestlemania 10 saw Bret Hart have 2 matches and win the WWF Championship, Wrestlemania 20 saw Chris Benoit overcome all the odds against Shawn Michaels and Triple H, and Wrestlemania 30 had Daniel Bryan not only defeat Triple H, but defeat two other former members of Evolution in the triple threat match to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Randy Orton Vs Seth Rollins - 4* - Throughout 2013 – 2014 when the Authority grew into power the original chosen one Randy Orton was, that was until Triple H personally recruited Seth Rollins to be the next chosen one, the next top WWE star. The Authority would kick Orton out, and Orton would go away for some time. Until he made his return pretending to be aligned with Rollins, until the time was right and the Viper striked his prey. One of the best spots in Wrestlemania, hell even WWE history to end this match.
Triple H Vs Sting – No Disqualification Match – 2 ½* - One of the biggest things wrestling fans wanted to see in their life was Sting compete in WWE. More specifically Sting face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania. We didn’t get that unfortunately, but we got something that can be argued as even better in terms of wrestling quality. We got The Authority Figure - Triple H, against The Man from the Rafters - Sting, it was very WCW 1997-esque. There is a bunch of run-ins from various wrestlers, and a confusing ending, but I’ll be damned if I wont say that I enjoyed this match. People will complain about this being ‘WWE is better than WCW’ and Vince wanted to nail the final nails in the coffin of the Monday Night Wars, but I think it’s fun and better than Sting not even competing in WWE. However, personally I still feel like they could’ve just swapped the matches around a bit ie. Triple H Vs Bray Wyatt & The Undertaker Vs Sting.
Seth Rollins Vs Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns – WWE World Heavyweight Championship – 4 ½* - This match was originally stated as 1 on 1 match but then a shocking occurrence happened – Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Briefcase.. in the Main Event of a Wrestlemania.. and won in which is called ‘the Heist of the Century’. This was the complete opposite of what everyone expected – very little hype/predicted ending and it completely caught everyone by surprise with how good it was. People really hated the build-up to this match with the last shot before the match being a tug-of-war for the title between Roman & Lesnar. But I believe this match helped establish Reigns as a star who could take a beating and help put on a decent match. This is arguably one of the best endings to a Wrestlemania of all time, and I think most people will agree with that.
Brock Lesnar Vs Dean Ambrose – No Holds Barred Match – 3 ¼* - It’s hard to talk about this match – the only analogy for this match would be imagine if you were super psyched for a new movie coming out and you hyped it for weeks/months on end and then when you saw it you thought it was super meh. That’s how I’d describe this match, and most (probably all) the blame can get put onto Brock. I mean maybe I’m too harsh on this match, there’s bound to be some people who like it – guess I just don’t.
Charlotte Vs Becky Lynch Vs Sasha Banks – WWE Women’s Championship – 4* - This is easily the best Womens match in Wrestlemania history, these 3 women really went all out on this match and it is one of the redeeming qualities for a pretty lacking ‘Mania. This match was for the inaugural (new) Women’s Championship and it also meant that WWE would no longer use the term ‘diva’, it would be changed to women’s superstar. The issue people have with this match is that they don’t like the winner of this match, but I think it’s fine and that in the long-run WWE history it’ll be good to see the first champion was the daughter one of the best wrestlers of all time – Ric Flair.
Roman Reigns Vs Triple H – WWE World Heavyweight Championship – 3 ¼* - Maybe not the best match of all time, yet still significant because Roman's first WWE Championship win at a Wrestlemania. After changing the Wrestlemania main event for 2 years straight, Vince McMahon knew this year there was no chance he was changing it again. This would be the start of Reigns third championship reign, but it is the most important reign of them all.
I hope people enjoyed this series, I really put a lot of effort into it because it was a three week series. However, I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news - this will be my last ‘Essential Match Post’ for a while. For the last 9 months I’ve made these posts every single week purely as a hobby to enjoy some good old wrestling and use my knowledge of wrestling to inform others on wrestlers/events that they’ve never heard of. When I first started my first post was allowing causals to get up to speed with the last 5 years of wrestling, from there I got messages asking to look at specific wrestlers and then of course events. It’s been really fun to do this; most people are fun to interact with on here but I think it’s time to take a break. I wanna thank everyone who upvotes on these posts instead of just downvoting it as soon as they're posted. I think if/when I return to doing these essential posts I’ll probably do one a month or only rare occasions. I still want to do a Summerslam Essential Post to complete my ‘Big 4 PPV Essential Lists’, but that’ll be saved for August time. If there's other wrestler's you'd like me to do in the future, feel free to message me or comment on this. A few last things, I hope people enjoy Wrestlemania this Sunday (Monday for me in Australia) and just be a fan of the show overall, and lastly I want to thank all the mods on SquaredCircle for all your help with these, I bet you’s are all sick of me weekly, constantly annoying you to see if I can get these post stickied. Looking at yous all, Pudietme001inmynothingkillhimalreadySlyguy46P4NK-TP
