CoCT Round 1 - West Turnbuckle Conference

Here are the results from the North Turnbuckle Conference

Bruno Sammartino (64%) vs. Rob Van Dam (36%)
Randy Savage (33%) vs. Chris Jericho (67%)
Brock Lesnar (17%) vs. The Undertaker (83%)
Bob Backlund (75%) vs. Sgt. Slaughter (25%)

Total blowouts, and in my opinion, Jericho vs. Savage has to be considered a major upset. Don't get me wrong, I love Chris Jericho, but when talking about the greatest WWE Champions of all-time, few come close to the Macho Man. And oh yeah, wrestling fans still hate Brock Lesnar, but that probably doesn't surprise you that much. Let's take a look at the bracket now:

And that brings us to Round 1 of the West Turnbuckle Conference; here are the matches you'll be voting on, and make sure to vote in all four polls to the right of your screen:

Hulk Hogan vs. Batista
Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair (ouch)
The Rock vs. John "Bradshaw" Layfield
Bret Hart vs. Sheamus

Polls close on Sunday, so get those votes in quickly!


  1. In the Fire Pro simulation, Slaughter beat Backlund.

    And Savage/Jericho was epic.

  2. Did Jericho win in your sim? Via Liontamer?

  3. It was a Fire Pro 45 minute classic. Jericho kept getting the upperhand, and he was throwing everything at Savage, but he just wouldn't go down. There were 4 or five 2.9 counts.

    And then Savage started turning the match around and he got Jericho bleeding, and it was looking really bad for him. Savage went for a double axe handle from the top turnbuckle, Jericho just missed getting hit and he countered with a clothesline and put Savage into the Walls of Jericho and made him tap.

  4. Razor, polls aren't working. They all say Google Error Not Found for me.

    Hogan, Rock, and Bret win in squashes, and the matchmaker needs to be slapped for giving away HBK/Flair in round 1. Since we're primarily counting WWE success here, HBK wins.

  5. Anyone else having trouble with the polls? They look fine on my end and people have been voting, but is anyone else experiencing issues?

    I seeded the matches by length of title reigns and by sheer chance, it put Flair and HBK against each other in round one. Brutal, I know.

    And dammit MC, you've got me wanting to dig my PS2 out of the closet and hook it up just to play Fire Pro. Damn PS3 Slim and its lack of backwards compatibility.

  6. Fire Pro is a cruel mistress.

    Just wait for next week's results... two of them were worth noting.
