1st Round Upsets #57 Pat Patterson over #8 Davey Boy Smith #50 Van Hammer over #15 Jerry Lawler #38 Marty Jannetty over # 27 Junkyard Dog #44 Mike Awesome over #21 Steve Corino WCW Bracket Winner: #2 Undertaker He has the broadest appeal which should garner him the most votes. Best Cinderella possibility (#20 seed or lower) - #44 Mike Awesome or #61 Brian Danielson I listed two here, because one depends on the other. If Brian Danielson can get enough smark votes to get by John Cena, I dont see him losing for a while, possibly going to the regional Elite Eight with a match against Chris Benoit. If Danielson cant get over Cena, then it will be Mike Awesome doing the damage in the tournament, boosted by the backing of the old ECW fans. First Top Ten seed to be out - #8 Davey Boy Smith John Cena is in real danger, but I dont see Davey Boy Smith moving on over Pat Patterson at all. John Cena MIGHT go out, but I believe Smith WILL go out. 1st Round Match to Watch: #10 Yokozuna vs. #55 Earthquake Two goliaths going at it, in a match that would have to see the ring re-enforced. Watching these two mammoths go at it will be a sight to see. 1st Round Match to avoid: #10 vs. #55 Earthquake The very same aspect that makes this match interesting to watch, will also make it boring once it gets started. The Breakdown: This region will have some VERY interesting matchups, with some top seeds meeting very difficult challenges in the first round. Even the top seed Hulk Hogan will face a tough challenger from Pat OConnor, with the old school traditional wrestling fans traditionally giving Hogan a hard time. The regions second seed will face a tough test with The Great Khali, Cena will have a tough first round test with Danielson, and I dont see Davey Boy Smith getting past Pat Patterson. Aside from that, there will be some interesting matchups, with super heavyweights clashing, several instances of mainstream wrestlers vs. indy wrestlers, and several older wrestlers colliding. In the end, Undertakers broad base of appeal from older wrestling fans, the IWC, and mainstream fans should give him the win in this region.
