Hi guys,

Just started positng here (clawmaster emailed me about the cool things going on here.)

Over the past few weeks I've been running a tag team tournament (poll) on my website. We started w/16 teams that were legendary in Memphis wrestling history. We're now down to the final 4 teams. The semi-final poll runs to Sunday. Monday the finals will start.

Feel free to take a look

ps,

As soon as the tag tournament is over, we'll have a singles tourny up next (16 Memphis legends).

I voted and I'd recommend every else do as well. Interesting results so far.

I agree. I resolved with myself (before it began), that what ever the results were, for better or worse, I wouldn't doctor them up in any way (push a certain team, get my friends voting, etc.) It's out there, getting real votes and I've been recieving very positive feedback on the entire tournament.

I'll keep everyone updated as it (and the next poll) get going.

Very interesting. I  voted in the last round too. I'm glad you posted this here, because I would have forgotten to check back and vote again.

Very interesting matchups.Great tourney! I'm a total geek for that kind of thing.

On the original matchups, someone ask me about them (on another forum). I really wrote each team on a piece of paper, rolled each one into a ball, mixed them up and put them in them on the paper in order of being picked. Totally as random as I could get. After the original match ups were made i did the same thing to decide the make-up of the 8 matches. The reason for all the work? I didn't want to have to do a ranking of the top16 teams from Memphis history (and hear all the complaints, lol). Random keeps that from happening and everyone can vote for their favorites.

Glad you're enjoying it.

I went with the Fabs on the thesis that a good team will beat 2 good singles wrestlers.

I like how the semis had 2 teams that were alltime great teams in wrestling history, but not really associated with Memphis, although they did work there (Roadies and FreeBirds) versus two teams that were pure Memphis (the two in the Finals). I voted for the teams that are Memphis legends. The finals  are what I think of when I think of Memphis wrestling (I am an 80's guy more than any other era).
