    So, the first set of brackets of the first-ever Debater's League Double Elimination Tournament are in the history books. Rohan, nightmare, Killjoy, The Rattlesnake, Stormtrooper, Pancake, DirtyJose and Mitch have all advanced to the second round in the Winner's bracket. A great job by all of the winners... and well deserved.

    Unfortunately, Aweome_Miz, Mr. Steve, hatehabsforever, Paralyzer Z, Milenko, CP Munk, deaandterry and Talon have been knocked down to the first round in thew Loser's bracket but they're not out yet! Remember, participants must lose twice before they are eliminated. Therefore, if they can shake off their first loss, they can still move into the championship to face the Winner's bracket finalist!

    The way things are going to work from here are like this: The Winner's bracket will continue to evolve until a Winner's bracket finalist is determined. Meanwhile, losers will be sent down to their respective places in the Loser's bracket. Once the finalist of the Winner's bracket is determined, debates will begin in the Loser's brackets.

    In the end, the finalist of the Loser's bracket faces the finalist of the Winner's bracket in the 2012 Debater's Tournament Championship. If the Winner's bracket finalist wins, he is the champion! (If the Winner's bracket champion loses the first debate, they will gain their first loss and a tie-breaking debate will occur. The winner of the tie-breaker will become champion.)

    We're off and running, fast and furious, and the second round of this year's tournament is complete.

    A big congratulations goes out to the ones who advanced to the semi-final round of the Winner's bracket: Rohan, Killjoy, Stormtrooper, and DirtyJose have been killing it and were a part of some of the closest and most controversial debates of the tournament. It's anybody's game and these guys are sure to put up a fight in the upcoming round!

    Thankfully to our other participants, this is a double-elimination tournament!! Mitch, Pancake, The Rattlesnake and deanandterry may have lost in round two of the Winner's bracket but now they move down to do battle with the previous survivors in the Loser's bracket; Mr. Steve, hatehabsforever, CP Munk, and nightmare!!

    Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to our first group of eliminated debaters: So, for Aweome_Miz, Paralyzer Z, Milenko, and Talon, we wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

    This is shaping up to become quite the interesting contest. Keep following these guys as they battle for Debater's League supremacy and glory!!

    It looks like Round #3 of this year's tournament is in the record books.

    Congratulations to The Killjoy and Stormtrooper who stay undefeated and advance to the finals of the Winner's bracket!!! What you gentlemen have done is very difficult. Winning three straight debates against tough opponents is extremely difficult. The winner of this matchup advances to the Debater's League CHAMPIONSHIP and gains a major advantage, since they need to lose twice in order to be dethroned in this tournament! Good luck to both of you!!

    In the Loser's bracket, Mitch, hatehabsforever, the Rattlesnake, and deanandterry are keeping the dream alive by advancing in their respective brackets. Well done!!

    Not everyone was a winner, this time around. Rohan and DirtyJose have been knocked off their pedestals and were bumped down to the Loser's bracket. But they have good positioning to stay in this thing and come out on top, so keep fighting!!

    Unfortunately for Mr. Steve, Pancake, CP Munk and nightmare, we have to say goodbye. You all put up one hell of a fight but fell short. There's always next year!

    The next round is starting TONIGHT so keep your eyes on the prize!!

    Okerlund OUT.

    Mean Gene is back with your Round #4 update and recap.

    What a debate by The Killjoy and Stormtrooper in the finals of this year's Winner's bracket!!! But we all knew there could be only one winner and that man is none other than The Killjoy!!! He has earned his spot and advances to the Debater's League CHAMPIONSHIP!! After all of his hard work, The Killjoy now gets to sit back, relax, and watch the remaining competitors in the Loser's bracket hang onto their tournament lives, fight to the death, and try to advance to become his opponent in the championship.

    In the Loser's bracket, hatehabsforever and the Rattlesnake defeated their opponents and are still alive in this tournament. But now they must face two men who advanced further than they did in the Winner's bracket; Rohan and DirtyJose. These guys are hungry for some competition and have their eyes on the prize. I expect some killer debates from all four competitors!

    The only bracket jump that we'll see this week is from a very frustrated and upset debater in Stormtrooper. Although he vocalized some frustration in the judgment of his debate against The Killjoy, that's not going to change the fact that he lost, fair and square. However, he's still in this thing! And he gains a spot the final Loser's bracket spot and can still become the Loser's bracket winner in a rematch to avenge his only loss! But he has to earn that spot, first. Who will be his opponent? Keep following the tournament to find out!

    This round, we must say goodbye to R.J. Macready (Mitch) and deanandterry. It's sad to see them go since they put forth such an incredible effort. Way to go, guys.

    The next round begins Sunday afternoon and I smell blood in the water!! Who will advance? Who will Stormtrooper have to face in order to avenge his loss? I can't wait to see how it all unfolds!!

    STAY TUNED!!

    Mean Gene is back to bring you Debater's League Tournament news!!

    As The Killjoy sat back from atop the mountain and viewed the carnage, we waived goodbye to two more strong debaters this week. Unfortunately for Rohan and The Rattlesnake, they had to make their exit. Not everyone can win this thing and these two, strong debaters fell victim to just that. Thanks for the effort, boys.

    hatehabsforever coasted to a victory since Rohan couldn't make the time for the debate this week. All he needed was to post an opening statement and victory was attained.

    Although DirtyJose continued to show his strengths and rose to victory, he had a similar situation. It appeared as if the two debaters were intimidated by this week's perplexing topic. A lazy debate by himself and his opponent got him a close and lucky victory. Let's hope this coming week against hatehabsforever isn't as boring.

    For the next two weeks, we'll see only one debate as the Loser's bracket champion gets decided. Who will move onto face Stormtrooper? Will it be hatehabsforever or DirtyJose? Looks like everyone is going to find out this Sunday!!

    Until then, this is Mean Gene signing off!! See you in the winner's circle!!

    Mean Gene is back to bring you Debater's League Tournament news!!

    The time has finally come... after two months of grueling, dedicated, phenomenal debating, it all comes down to this. Two men have overcome rookies, veterans, and no-showing imbeciles to acquire the coveted 2012 Debater's League Championship.

    After a new format shocked the WZ debating world, we had the pleasure of seeing 18 formidable members of our forum throw down the gauntlet and go down in history with the likes of Nick and the D-Man. Their goal; to gain bragging rights as the best professional wrestling debater on Wrestlezone Forums.

    The Killjoy struck first and rose to the mountaintop of the Winner's bracket while hatehabsforever rose from adversity and earned his position as Loser's Bracket Champion. These guys are about to throw down in (what might be considered as) the most controversial topic in the history of the Debater's League.

    Good luck, gentlemen. This is Mean Gene signing off!!
