Note: The following is written by my son, who has been asking me to run this tournament for a few months. Well, I finally caved in so here it is below. I sort of let him have at it but assisted with some of the details such as creating the poll and helping him post it on the site, but the rest is all him. If there’s anything you hate about it, he’s a ten-year old kid who is having some fun. Thanks.
Hi guys, I’m back but this time I won’t write a column. I will do something different! I thought it would be cool to do a fantasy tournament with wrestlers from the past vs. present wrestlers. So I have thought of some top 16 wrestlers from the past and some top 16 present wrestlers. The way it will work is my Dad will put a poll for you guys to vote, every few days another match will be posted, so make sure you look out for the matches! And then at the end there will be one winner!
The way that the matches were determined was by pulling names out of a hat, I put the 16 present wrestlers in one hat and the 16 old wrestlers in another hat and then pulled one from both hats to have the matchup.
When all the first 16 matches have happened, I will put all the names back into a hat and make new matches!
Here are the wrestlers that I chose to include in this tournament. I might have missed some good wrestlers that you might have picked instead, but I just picked the ones that I thought were the best!
John Cena, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, The Miz, Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman, Undertaker, Chris Jericho, Finn Balor, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kane and Randy Orton.
Eddie Guerrero, Ultimate Warrior, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Macho Man Randy Savage, Ric Flair, Daniel Bryan, Andre the Giant, Goldberg, CM Punk, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Bret Hart, Triple H, Mick Foley, Hulk Hogan. Update: I took out Batista and put in Kurt Angle because I forgot all about him!
Please vote on who you think would win if they wrestled when each was his best level.
