IC tournament Round One: Groups I-P

Lots of interesting matches this round, including the BATTLE OF CONDITIONER~! between Edge and Diesel.  Hopefully nothing to inspire the ballot-stuffers to try it again.

  1. Sorry Pat but I gotta give it to Eddie, who was also the best European champ and those are important credentials.

  2. What's the point in voting when someone will get a wild hair up their ass and spam votes!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Your vote matters! So vote or die!

  4. Mero was a sneaky good IC champ but I had to vote for Razor. Goldust over Benoit was another tough choice.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I see the Goldust/Benoit being a really close match considering how many people will automatically vote against Benoit because of real life stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Big Show was IC Champion?

    ReplyDelete
  7. To have to choose between Patterson and Guerrero was just cruel.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Mero's IC title reign sucked, but I think it had potential to be good if WWF had more faith in the guy.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Benoit is one of those guys who I just associate closely with the IC title like Perfect or Razor. Like when I think of Benoit, I think of IC champ Benoit.

  10. fighting cody rhodes

  11. Voted for Diesel. It's all about the magnificent hair.

    ReplyDelete
  12. To be fair, what happened with the Mountie/Pedro match was an army of Mountie supporters versus an army of Pedro supporters who practically cancelled each other out.

    But not enough for the Mountie to win regardless!

    ReplyDelete
  13. How can Pat not win this? He won it in a very legendary fashion.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Everyone raves about his final match in the tournament but I always felt the semi final match was far more brutal and awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Pleasantly surprised that my pick Jericho is ahead of the Bulldog

    ReplyDelete
  16. Throwing my support behind Dashing Cody Rhodes (handsome,) Eddie Guerrero (brave) and Razor Ramon (strong.)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Huh. Tito Santana versus Big Show would be a fun match.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I was seriously torn on that one. I voted Edge just 'cause Diesel's IC reign isn't particularly memorable, but I'm a big ol' Diesel nerd.

    ReplyDelete
  19. That was a travesty. Cody was a good champ but show killed his push.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I was torn too, but went with Diesel because I figured he'd be the underdog, so it surprised me he's winning so far.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thankfully he had never done that before and hasn't since.

    Wait...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I voted Goldie just because I think he was a great IC champ and I remember all of his title feuds. Other than the Jericho ladder match (which rules), I don't remember a lot of what Benoit did with the belt.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Los Matadores is sadder, but AJ is way hot so it cancels out.

    ReplyDelete
  24. As a kid, I was super into Mero's IC title run just because of 1. Sable and 2. The Wild Thing finishing move.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would like to watch all four of these matches.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, I hate that. I only vote once each time and find it annoying that people can vote multiple times.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This reminds me of Bret's story in Wrestling With Shadows, I believe where Stu would get Bret in a choke hold and tell him he breathed his last breath and Bret totally believed that his father would go too far.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I agree. The Mountie - who beat Bret Hart without breaking a sweat - easily dispatches of old, wrinkly Ric Flair who could barely get a good match out of Carlito.

    ReplyDelete
  29. When will people realise that this is SUPER SERIOUS and not just for fun?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Goldust was one of the greatest IC champs ever. The only belt I associate with Benoit is a weightlifting belt.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think Goldust deserves the win here and not because of the murders. He had a number of hot feuds over the belt and was a very high profile wrestler for a short time. Benoit incision got it done in the ring, but I feel Goldust did more with the belt.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Likewise. I mostly remember Benoit as being a perennial title contender, such as the time he was being managed by Shane McMahon. Whereas Goldust and his feuds with Ahmed and Razor were the very definition of mid-card title classics.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wouldn't argue that about Goldust either, he was a damn fine champ. But Benoit is just that upper tier of IC guys to me.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I honestly remember him more for going after the world title (with Shane managing him) and then later for his match against Angle at the Royal Rumble, and other such classic, WWE/World title angles. Not so much the IC belt.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well, there was a Survivor Series were Tito tried to sunset flip Andre... only to have the big guy sit down and score the pin. Tito did better against Akeem, defeating him in the IC Tournament in the spring of 1990.

    Jericho is sooooo overrated as an IC champion. Won it and lost in the same night. Lost it one time after a week. The most he ever did with that belt was trying to revive it in 2009 and even then he lost it after three weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Almost 7500 votes!!! Holy shit go Jacques

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have a hard time believing Pat Patterson ever finished where it involved a woman.

    ReplyDelete
  39. ...poor Marc Mero.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I definitely think we can Mountie past flair.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think Santana has a chance to go pretty far in this one. I love his title run and his feuds with Valentine and Savage are classic.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Who said he hugged and collapsed on a woman?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't think Jericho is one of the greatest IC champs like Perfect, Bret, Shawn, Savage, etc... but I do think he should beat Davey Boy. I remember Y2J doing some good stuff with it. Ladder matches with Benoit and Christian. The feud with Rey. His matches with RVD. I'm a big Bulldog fan but other than the win over Bret and the loss to hbk, I can't think of anything he did.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Damn right he did!

    ReplyDelete
  45. easily. would win the match with the shockstick. mountie is waaaay more important to that title than flair.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Adam "Colorado" CurryJanuary 9, 2015 at 7:29 PM

    I can't vote for someone who was that bad in the ring. 1996 Goldust is one of the worst wrestlers of all time.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh god I gotta pick between pat and Eddie g?

    ReplyDelete
  48. How come, whomever I vote for, it comes up saying "Your vote has been cast for ROMAN REIGNS"?

    ReplyDelete
  49. You've got a choice between the stiff, and... well... you see where I'm going here.

    ReplyDelete
  50. The Blog is running on Mountie Power.

    ReplyDelete
  51. BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    This is not a commentary of CM Punk's IC reign vis a vis Shawn's. I just don't like that piggish, Bible-humping fraud.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Bret Hart has The Mountie at #2 on his all-time list. Over 1,000 places higher than HHH!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Mountiemania running wild! Be brave, be handsome, be strong and enforce the law!

    ReplyDelete
  54. we're gonna look back at this and say 'remember when mountie ruled the world'

    Oh that's just the WWE.com verison of the tournament.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Some of you all have too much time on your hands.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Funnily enough, I remember a match on Prime Time wherein Akeem defeated Bret Hart... by sitting on him after a failed sunset flip.

    ReplyDelete
  58. We lost Pedro...but I'll be damned if I'm losing Tito!

    ARRIBA!

    You think Flair fears a fucking shock stick??

  60. The bravest there is, the handsomest there was, and the strongest there ever will be.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Every match Patterson had in that tournament was as awesome as any other. I still have my ticket stub.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonJanuary 9, 2015 at 7:48 PM

    I still wanna know how Steamboat came back like an Iron Man match.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I was shocked when they gave the strap to Eddie so soon after RVD finally got to win it. They had a series of great matches though from Backlash through the Raw ladder match.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonJanuary 9, 2015 at 7:50 PM

    LMAO @ Tito beating the Big Show.

    ReplyDelete
  65. And after that, a potential matchup with Bret Hart. That should go to the Mountie as well, because he BEAT Bret Hart to win the titlle.


    Mountie to the Elite 8!

    Randy was cheated.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Shawn was the exact opposite as IC Champ.

    ReplyDelete
  69. When asked for a comment, Jacques replied, "I YAM DA MOUNTIE!"

    ReplyDelete
  70. No worries here, as that was Bret's feelings. Flair used to throw good chops until he started doing them more as a slap.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Well to be the man, you have to beat the man. The Mountie ALWAYS gets his man. And I've always thought the key to beating the man was getting the man. Therefore, The Mountie will beat the man after getting his man, and therefore be the man.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Absurd. Mountie? Absurd.

    ReplyDelete
  73. to rephrase a great Bart Simpson line, "The dead have risen and they're voting for The Mountie!"
