    Before we begin, please be courteous enough to read our spamming rules here in the forum. This tournament is meant to be fun, and educational, but we ask that you adhere to our spamming rules. We want participation, but give us something to participate with. We have relaxes spam rules, but don't take advantage of those rules.

    Welcome to the annual Wrestlezone Tournament. Whether this is your first time following one of these, or you've been a part of them all, we hope you enjoy your stay. It's a long process, which will take several months to complete, but it's an enjoyable process as well. We dwindle this bad boy down until there is only one man left standing.

    So first and foremost, I would like to thank those that helped contribute with this years tournament field. Many request were sent out, and only a few answered the call. It started off with me simply asking people to rank for me their top 100 wrestlers, and I tallied the numbers based on that. The Mod Staff are given free passes to contribute a list if they so chose, but we also extended an invitation out to a dozen of our best wrestling posters to contribute as well. Diversification of list really opens this up, and pardoy plays a big part in it. If you are looking for those to thank, I will have a list up shortly of all of the names.


    The Basic rules of the tournament. The top 256 Wrestlers to receive votes are the wrestlers which made the tournament. The tournament is a single elimination tournament with 8 rounds. The Four Regions are as follows. The WWF Region, with an emphasis of basic WWE Rules. The WCW Region follows the same layout essentially of the WWF Region except for one, the ring entrance ramp is on the same level as the ring. The TNA Region has the familiar six sided ring, and the ECW Region is Extreme Rules all throughout, depending on rules of gimmick matches.

    The first three rounds of the tournament take place in separate locations, determined on the hometown of the highest seeded wrestler in a certain bracket. They are basic one on one matches, the rules depending on the Region in which the wrestler is competing in. For Example, Match A is taking place in the TNA Region, therefore the match will take place inside of a six sided TNA Ring.

    Rounds 4 and 5 are gimmick matches. This is the real meat grinder of the tournament as wrestlers that are sure favorites suddenly run into a gimmick match they may not excel at, thus blowing the field wide open. Round 4 is an old favorite, if you are familiar with WCW You Know it as Spin the Wheel Make the Deal, or for newer fans, Raw Roulette. Seeding and all of that is thrown out the window, the Wheel decides which gimmick match is used. And Round 5 features matches exclusive to each region.

    Round 5 features the semi finals of each region, the gimmick in those two matches is determined by coin flip. The WWF Region features Hell in the Cell and Tables, Ladders and Chairs. WCW Region features a 60 Minute Iron man Match, and the Triple Tiered Steel Cage. TNA's Region features an Ultimate X Match, and the Monster's Ball. Finally, ECW Features a Barbed wire match (although this may change) and Three Stages of hell, with the gimmick matches randomly chosen.

    Rounds 6-8 would take place in one night, King of the Ring Style. Stamina becomes the key friend in those final three rounds.

    That is the Basic Layout of the tournament. It's an 8 round event, with the first 3 rounds being basic one on one matches, the middle two rounds composed of gimmick matches, and the final three rounds a one night tournament to crown the winner.


    The Voting Process: This is the most subjective part of the entire tournament. How should I vote? Honestly, I'm not here to tell you how to vote. What determines a great wrestler to one person determines a boring wrestler for another. Whatever voting credentials you come up with will suffice. Keep in mind, Voting is public, and if you vote, and don't participate in debates, you maybe called out on it. Don't take it personally, instead go after the person that is calling you out.

    However, I would encourage to not vote because you hate a certain wrestler less then another wrestler. Also, I would encourage not voting if you don't know a wrestler in a specific match. These tournaments are designed to bring out names that most may never heard of, and shed light onto their history. If you see a name you aren't familiar with, perhaps do a little research and you may like what you find.

    Flaming: Debates and tournaments such as this have certainly caused tense situations in the past years. Throughout all the tournaments, tempers have flared, and justifiably so. People become passionate about certain wrestlers, especially those they grew up watching. While I don't encourage it, mild flaming is allowed, but remember, what is mild is subjective, and at a mods discretion. If a mod warns you for flaming, respect their decision.

    The Chris Benoit Rule: Yes, it's the ugly little thing that wrestling fans are on one side of the fence or the other, Chris Benoit. This tournament is about wrestling, and the person in questions professional life, not their private life. Bringing up the Benoit Murders, the Hogan Family Circus, Steve Austin beating his wife, or anything really not relating to wrestling will get you an infraction, and eventually a banning from participation in the tournament. Try to keep the real life affairs out. If you find you can't vote for someone based on their real life issues, simply don't vote and stay away from matches those people are involved in.

    Essentially that's the bulk of it. It's a lot to absorb and digest, but it's much easier then what it looks like. The most important thing is to have fun. It's as much about having fun as it is informative. Enjoy the tournament, and the field will be revealed in the coming days.

    The Call was made, and 25 responded with list of 100 wrestlers. What could have been a potential of 2500 different wrestlers receiving a vote, was dwindled down to 387 wrestlers that received votes, and from those 387, 256 made the field. Now before the field is slowly revealed, this is now a chance for me to thank those who participated with the War Room process of the tournament.

    The people to thank or yell at for your favorite wrestlers being in or out of the tournament are.

    RVD Gurl, Harthan, Polley, Norcal, Slyfox, CM, Klunderbunker, Justinsayne, FromtheSouth, TDigle, Jake, Mysterio_Fan, Will, Monkey, TM, The Great Milenko, NoFate, Luther, NSL, IC25, Shango, Sam, Shadowmancer, Ricky and Myself. We are the people with no life.

    This year, the WWF/E Regional Winner will Face off against the TNA Regional Winner in the Final Four, While the WCW and ECW Winners will face off against one another.

    Tomorrow night at 5 PM Eastern Time will be the beginning of the revelations of the seeds. The #1 Seeds will be revealed first, and most likely the top 4 seeds for each region. Throughout this weekend more will be revealed until the eventual entire bracket is revealed.

    So tomorrow at 5 PM ET is when we begin...

    This is the thread in which the seeds and wrestlers will be revealed. There were a total of 2500 points available. There were a total of 7 wrestlers that received unanimous votes from all of the voters in this phase, and I will relay to you those who did that.

    In case of a tie in points, the tie breaker will go to the wrestler that received the most votes from different voters. If there is still a tie from that scenario, then it will be broken up randomly.

    Also when you see a wrestler's name in red, it denotes a bracket buster. This is a wrestler that received a vote from only one voter, and busted into the brackets based on that one vote.

    Please note that I will be using one thread per each four seeds that are represented by the number of the title. So the #1 Seeds are going to be numbers 1-4 overall. As to not be a post count ****e, I will simply be editing and updating each individual post until I accomplish my goal of four per post.

    Bret "The Hitman" Hart

    He is the man that carries the most momentum into the tournament. He has recently won the WZ Tag Team Tournament, along with the WZ Legends Tournament. Can the Hitman make it a Hitman Trifecta and win Three Tournaments in A Row? Right now, he looks to be the favorite to win the whole thing.

    "The Immortal" Hulk Hogan
    [​IMG]
    The man that many claim to be the most signifant wrestler of the last 25 years. He is the man that is considered by many to be responsible for two boom periods of wrestling. Hulk Hogan, most likely you either love him, or hate him. With 6 first place votes, he'll be a tough out for anyone that stands in his way.

    "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
    [​IMG]

    The man that many feel saved the WWE from bankruptcy. He was the head of the attitude Era, and used the word ass freely. While some forget how great of a technical wrestler Stunning Steve Was, the Rattlesnake will be nearly impossible to beat in an environment of Extreme Rules.

    "Macho Man" Randy Savage
    [​IMG]
    He is the man that made it to the Wrestlezone Finals last year. He is a man that gets little to no love by the WWE today. For those that say the IWC is a bad thing, I beg to differ, because without the IWC, you wouldn't know about Randy Savage. The Macho Man grabs the last #1 Seed.

    [​IMG]

    The Man, the 16, 17, whatevermany time world champion depending on who you talk to makes his way into the tournament as the strongest of the two seeds. Flair made it to the finals of the first Wrestlezone Tournament and lost in a triple threat to Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels. Does the Naitch have wwhat it takes to win it all this year?

    "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels
    [​IMG]

    The man that won the first Wrestlezone Tournament, and made it to the final four of last years tournament. Essentially, HBK is the most dangerous man in this tournament. HBK has a strong fan base, and the credentials to back it up to go far, and with no rules, what HBK will their be? He won the first WZ tournament coming from the ECW region.

    The Undertaker

    The Defending Wrestlezone Champion returns to the tournament as the WCW Region's #2. The Deadman has made impressive showings thus far, making it to the final four of the first tournament, and winning last years. Can anyone stop the Undertaker.

    [​IMG]
    Kurt Angle returns home to the WWE Region. Kurt is about as well rounded of a wrestler as it gets, and is about as strong of a #2 seed to a #1 seed as there is. If Kurt wishes to win, he has Bret Hart standing in his way.

    The Rock
    [​IMG]

    The Rock is truly one of the bigger wildcards of this entire tournament. A career cut short because he moved on to "better" things may have cut into the Rock's legacy. Some hold that against him, some say he "can't wrestle", but make no mistake about it, the Rock has a loyal fanbase, and can go far in this thing.

    Perhaps the Last Great Wrestler to never perform for Vince McMahon? Sting is the enigma of this tournament. His fans remember him fondly, but will lack of WWE exposure lead to a premature exit for the Stinger?

    "The Rated R Superstar" Edge
    [​IMG]

    Essentially the Anti-Sting. While Sting has no WWE Exposure, Edge is the most decorated champion in the history of that company. The man has done everything in the WWE, and doesn't look to slow down. A man that destroyed Mick Foley in a hardcore match now has the benefits of being placed in a region with no rules. Simply Put, Edge is dangerous.

    "The 2008 Superstar of the Year" Chris Jericho

    The first ever Undisputed Champion in Wrestling history, the Ayatollah of Rock N Rolla comes into the TNA region looking to upset the top two seeds. Jericho is slowly moving up the list of greatest of all times, and to win this, he has two of the biggest in his region alone standing in front of him.

    A lightning rod of controversy, the 13 time world champion returns to the TNA Region where he lost in the gimmick rounds in year one. The Game has accomplished everythign there is to in the business, but can he accomplish the respect of the IWC and these forums and win the Wrestlezone Tournament?

    When You talk about Controversy, John Cena is the current personification of it. What he may lack in pure technical ability, he makes up for in pure passion for the business. It's a respect for the business that has opened the fans eyes and has seen him move up the rankings in our polls over the last few years. Does John Cena have enough this year to shed the smark hatred and move to A WZ championship?

    Randy Orton, perhaps the most decorated champion in the history of the business before the age of 30. He is the youngest world champion in the history of the business, and if he wants to live up to his name, he has four of the best ranked above him in this region alone.

    Uh Oh. The Next Big Thing is in an environment with no rules. Essentially, Brock Lesnar is the prototype for all wrestlers. A perfect blend of strength, speed, stamina and rage. Brock has the ability to mat wrestle the small guys, the pure power to man handle superheavyweights, and the nastiness to go Hardcore. Can Brock Lesnar run the table in the ECW Region?

    "Mr. Monday Night" Rob Van Dam

    [​IMG]

    The franchise of the old ECW, a man that is consdiered a spot monkey, returns to a region he had good luck in last year. Simply put, Rob Van Dam in a six sided ring is a dangerous combination.

    "The Five Time WCW Champion" Booker T

    What Edge is to the WWE, Booker T was to WCW. Booker T is perhaps the msot decorated champion in the history of WCW, but does Booker T have the hardcore attitude in him to not go home early in the ECW Region?

    Some feel he was underpushed, some feel he is over rated. The British Bulldog is a topic of conversationi, and it will be interesting to see how well he fairs in the WCW Region.

    "Hansome" Harley Race
    [​IMG]

    The man that legitimized the NWA Title, Harley Race. Clearly the age gap is evident in the number of voters that gave Race any points. Harley Race was great before most of us were born. Can harley Race make up the age gap in this tournament?

Bruno is credited with having the longest single title reign in the history of any world title, and he his second reign is amongst the longest as well. Bruno, an Old School tough guy, lands in the ECW Region.

    Extremely talented, yes, career underachiever, certainly. Scott Hall is a man that let his demons get the best of him in his real life career, but can the legacy he left be strong enough to get him far in this tournament?

    Well for a guy that excels in gimmick matches, he certainly was lucky to get this draw. In the Land of Extreme, Jeff won't have to worry about actually putting on a wrestling match. In ECW he can do what he does best, and that's flop his body around with no regard.

Jeff Jarrett is about as accomplished as anyone in this tournament, yet doesn't get the love he should. Jeff Jarrett is a true dark horse to upset the WCW Region.

Captain Charisma left the money of the WWE to make a name and star for himself in TNA,a nd he returned as a former World Champion. If anyone has what it takes to knock off Edge, then certainly the man taht knows him best is a top candidate.

    "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner

    Freakzilla himself enters into the TNA Region. Which Scott Steiner will people remember. Steiner is like Andre, where most people see the broken down too much weight carrying version. However, Scott Steiner was perhaps Brock Lesnar before Brock Lesnar. A perfect mesh of in ring ability, coupled with size, speed and stamina of epic proportions. The man practially invented the Hurricanrana, better known as the Frankensteiner. The main thing for Big Poppa Pump will be which image is predominant in most peoples minds today.

    The first true TNA Star to land in his home region, and without question probably the best of TNAs chances to go far in this tournament. He defeated Hulk Hogan in a ladder match in year one, and this year, he's in a home playing field. Is the Phenomenal one finally going to be the TNA star that knocks down the glass ceiling in these tournaments?

Thesz is synonmous with creating the world title in the NWA. While he was not the first, he certainly was the one that gave the NWA credibility.
