Winner: Steve

Steve celebrates the win and heads to the back.

A valiant effort from Laith, but Steve didnít last this long for no reason. The rookie tried his best but Steve winning was the ultimately the only outcome. Steve is a legend around here and it is going to take quite some doing to take down Mr. CF

I think the best way of summing this up is that Laith got fucked by the reset; he was slowly but surely building momentum as a writer, but after the reset he was gone. Steve hasnít been around much since the reset but has appeared in several big collabs over the months. Overall not a bad rookie showing from Laith against one of the Forums top talents. If youíre out there, feel free to join back up, we like people.

Winner: Don Franc

Don kept control there for most of that match, he is running with that main page momentum and just used it to run over Burn. Burn did have his moments but Don kept control here. Powerbombs and suplex may seem like a simple move set but damn is it effective

A solid ranking here from Burn, good stats across the board but one thing cost him, and itís the mid year gap, Burn came back hard in November and December but the rest of the year did not see such activity. Itís a shame to see Burn bow out so soon, but letís look on the Brightside, 2019 is here and who knows where weíll end up.

This one was actually pretty close, prior to the month count, zzzorf was ahead here, but sadly the King of Stats was only able to grace us with his presence in the early part of the year, kick ass with 32 columns in a 36 day period before being on his way once again. Come back zzzorf, we miss you.

Winner: Mizfan

A big battle between two veteran writers here, a lot of punishment dealt out from both but ultimately, Mizfan comes out victorious. Mizfan is undoubtably one of the names considered that could win this and Rose was looking to deal some damage and pick up the victory but unfortunately Mizfan had a strikeback for every hold or attack that Rose could think of.

Just from a cursory glance I think we can guess where Timís falling down was, he had a lot of views and a fair few replies, but over only 7 columns, he kicked ass in the late spring and early summer with six of his columns in May-July but ultimately he ended up on the main page where he remains to this day.



And with those matches all done, the Neidhart Bracket is done for now, so going forward we have Ö

Couple those in with the already scheduled 205Clive vs TripleR and PrimeTime vs KleckMania and the second round is looking good. For now though, it is time I bid you all a fond farewell. Iíll be back soon with the Dynamite Kid bracket but for now I hope you have enjoyed todayís column and I will see you next time.

Feedback time

@Anonymous: I understand that, I struggle with thinking what to say to most columns, so for something as out there as this, feedback is gonna be difficult.

@Don: I'd say it's more of a later career Ric Flair sort of thing where he cheats because he is an opportunist and beloved veteran.

Thanks to everyone for reading, I hope i'll be able to get the next set done before Elimination Chamber.
