Alright, here's the results from last round. No close matches here at all. Nearly all of them were shutouts or one-voters.
Beast over Vreck
Hida over Kanna
Gilkie over Mr. I
Nemesys over Canuck
JA over Bellview
Duchess over LB
Chip over Druid
Necro over Hitman
Anyway, here's the second round matchups for the Thomas and Bobo brackets. GOnna double up here to keep things moving. Also, I've decided to advance both Snake and Eddie to the second round, and in grand wrestling style, there's a three-way dance here!
Allen Thomas Bracket
Housefly (1) vs. Drifter (8)
I think this match has happened in A1E before, no? Anyway, I've listed their credentials in the previous round, so let's do something different for this round.
Fly's greatest opponent: This is a toughie, but I think I'll choose Beast here because of the sheer length of their hostility. You could make arguments for 187, Andy or even Nemesys for Fly here, but I think Fly and Beast has happened so many times over the years and each time it didn't seem old or recycled.
Drifter's greatest opponent: Would you believe it's himself? Well, not himself himself, but Nemesys. Don't really remember a whole lot of memorable feuds for Drifter except for a good self-angle he had with Nemesys over Lilith
Torment (4) vs. Slambo the Clown (5)
This match could have happened in A1E before, maybe during TURF WARZ 2K5~!
Torment's greatest opponent: Definitely Beast... man, Beast's been in a ton of great feuds, hasn't he? Anyway, their Cyber Title feud back in the day was the stuff of legends.
Slambo's greatest opponent: Slambo's always been more internally driven than feud-driven. I guess I'd say Dog and Ryan combined, because the tag feud they've had (including Chip) over the last month has been pretty hot. Someday (soon?), this answer will be Chip Friendly though.
Richard Farnswirth (2) vs. The Spoiler (7)
This hasn't happened yet, but it's a wet-dream match waiting to happen.
Farns' greatest opponent: It's a tossup between JA and Lindsay Troy... in the interest of not trying to pump myself up here, I'll go with Troy, since their feud helped cement the Triple Star Championship's status in A1E lore.
Spoiler's greatest (A1E) opponent: James Irish, since it's really been his only real A1E opponent thus far. I could say Promo and AJ, but that feud flamed out before it could begin.
Steven Shane (3) vs. Dan Ryan (6)
Hasn't happened in A1E yet, probably won't either. But it's on Shane's wishlist of matches he wants to have :)
Shane's greatest opponent: James Irish. I'd have to say that even though Shane kinda owned the feud, the win-loss tally doesn't say enough for how hard James pushed him.
Ryan's greatest (A1E) opponent: I'd say Duchess, but he'll shoot me :) Nah, seriously, it's Haven. They have a great sub-feud going, and for the last few months, it's been a calculated game of cat and mouse, only much more violent. I guess they're having a calculated game of Itchy and Scratchy.
Professor Bobo Bracket:
Euclid (1) vs. Roderick McRatrick (8)
This match hasn't happened yet, although Dave would probably hate me more than he already does if it ever did :p
Euclid's greatest opponent: No doubt it's Big Dog. I mean, these two are inextricably linked, and I don't think E's had an opponent like Dog who pushed him and whom he pushed in twain.
Roderick's greatest opponent: Sanity? :p Nah, I think if I had to pick for Roddy, it would probably be Promo, since they had a good two-match series back a year or so ago. Roddy was never really good for feuds as much as he was for mini-series.
James Irish (4) vs. Liquid Snake (5) vs. Eddie Weston (12)
This match has never happened in this iteration, although I think James and Eddie faced off before... in fact, I know they did, with Eddie unsucessfully challenging for the TST.
James' greatest opponent: I could go with one of the guys for whom he's the greatest opponent... but I think the best answer here is IrishRed.
Snake's greatest opponent: JA.... I don't think this is debateable, unless you want to throw tag team considerations in. Then Beast would have a case. But really, this is the only time I would debate for myself.
Eddie's greatest opponent: This is also probably non-negotiable. Andy Gilkison so far has been Eddie's defining opponent.
Ken Cloverleaf (2) vs. Mikey F'n W (7)
This hasn't happened before, and I don't think it will barring some comebacks.
Ken's greatest opponent: Housefly, I'll guess. They had a pretty hot feud in the first part of 2005.
Mikey's greatest opponent: Xavier Storm. They had one of the great early feuds in A1E, a feud that helped define a fed early on in its existance.
Gladiator (3) vs. Mr. Amazing! (6)
This match hasn't happened yet, and unless Jarret b rings back Gladdy, it probably won't.
Gladiator's greatest opponent: Big Dog. This is not debatable.
Mr. A!'s greatest opponent: This is tough... I'd probably say either IrishRed or James Irish (either way, it's someone Irish!) Lands on heads, Red it is.
