Now, I have way too much free time on my hands, and I tend to spend a decent amount of this free time in the wrestling world. Along with watching pro wrestling regularly, me and a friend of mine discuss it regularly as well. One topic we have a tendency to discuss is who is the G.O.A.T of wrestling. We often try to list a top 10 or so, but due to the fact there are only two of us, cannot agree on a list. This is why I've come up with a tournament style game to decide who the IWC considers the G.O.A.T in this industry.
Now, I'm sure this is a topic regularly discussed, and has probably been on these boards regularly, and if this is the 100th time that something like this has been attempted and you guys are sick of it, feel free to close this immediately. I checked the boards and have not seen anything like this, so if there is already something like this going on, again close this and lead me to it so I can participate as well.
If not, then the rules of the tournament will be as followed
- There will be a bracket consisting of 32 superstars
- Every week I will post 2 superstars that are matched up and you will vote on who you feel is the superior superstar, and feel free to discuss, and debate as well
- This will go on until there is one man remaining, and this man will be crowned the IWC's Greatest Professional Wrestler of All Time
Pretty simple format, but the fun part is narrowing it down to just 32 people to put into said bracket. That's where this thread comes in handy. I would like you guys to help me fill these brackets by simply following these rules
- Make a list of your top 20 superstars of all time. The list does not have to be ordered, it merely has to consist of 20 people
- There is no federation restrictions, so feel free to add superstars from WWE, WCW, ECW, NWA, NJPW, AAA, or any other federations you may follow, just make sure it's your top 20 of wrestling's history.
- Base your list off of whatever it is you feel makes a superstar great. It doesn't necessarily have to be a list of the top 20 in ring talents, or promo cutters, or influence on the business, but merely YOUR top 20 in wrestling history
- After about a week or so, I will tally up the superstars mentioned, and the 32 superstar mentioned the most, will be the 32 featured in our tournament
Please feel free to give any ideas on how to make this tournament operate as smoothly as possible, as well as any criticisms on the current format. A thank you in advance for participating, now lets crown the IWC's G.O.A.T of professional wrestling!!!!!!
