    The Unofficial Columns Forum Top Trumps ULTIMATE TOURNAMENT 2018 (Bruno bracket Round 1)

    Let battle carry on resuming continuing

    Whatís up guys, Kingzak is back in action with the last of the opening round matchups for the Writer of the Year tournament. We have another four matches to take place before we move onto Round 2 so without further ado, letís dive into the Sammartino bracket.

    Matchups for today

    Benjamin Button vs Mavsman

    Mavsman makes his entrance first, Benjamin Buttons music hits but he doesnít come out.

    The ref heads over to the ring announcer and has words with him. The announcer nods and takes his spot in the middle of the ring

    Ring announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, Benjamin Button has opted out of the tournament, therefore your winner by forfeit, Mavsman.

    Mavsman celebrates the win, and then grabs the mic off of the announcer

    Mavsman: Smart move Benjamin, you knew you couldnít beat me so better to give up than embarrass yourself. Iím surprised we are even having this tournament, we all already know who the best writer on the site is, and it is Ö.

    Skulduggeryís music cuts him off mid-sentence as he makes his way out for his match.

    Mavsman meets him at the ramp and yells at Skul, but Skulduggery blanks him and proceeds to the ring. Mavs heads up the ramp to the stage before turning back with the mic still in hand

    Mavsman: You best hope that you donít make it through to the next round, because you just pissed off the best writer in Ö.

    Jacobís music hits as he begins making his entrance, cutting off Mavsmanís speech once again. Mavsman storms to the back while JWG makes his way to the ring for his match

    JacobWrestledGod vs Skulduggery

    The bell rings and the two lock up, Jacob pushes Skul to the corner but Skul with a punch and into a rear waist lock takedown, Skul with a punch to the face and then sends JWG into the ropes, Skul with a forearm and he follows with some stomps to the chest. He gets JWG up and whips him to the ropes, Jacob slides round to the back and hits a chicken wing suplex. Jacob follows with an elbow drop to the back, he gets Skulduggery up but Skul with a neckbreaker.

    Skul with an elbow drop and then a quick backbreaker. JWG sweeps the legs and hits a forearm to stagger Skul, Jacob with a big suplex and then a kick to the back. He gets Skul up by the arm but Skul turns it into an arm drag and then hits a leg drop to the arm. Skul with a forearm leaving JWG on the second rope, Skul uses the knee to choke him against the rope. Skul heads to the top rope and goes for a diving forearm but JWG rolls out the way, Skul rolls through and JWG charges but Skul continues the roll and manages to roll it into a small package.

    Kickout by JWG
    Both men get to their feet and Mavsman rushes the ring, kendo stick in hand, he nails Skul in the gut and then a shot to JWGs head and the ref calls for the bell

    Mavsman goes to town on Skul with the kendo stick, JWG with a dropkick to Mavsman knocking him down, the stick slides out the ring, Jacob grabs Mavsman for a DDT but Mavsman slides out and hits a low blow before leaving the ring.

    As Mavs retreats up the ramp while JWG and Skul stand in the ring, Steve appears on stage but he is dressed to do General Manager things, not to wrestle. He has a mic in hand.

    Steve: What the hell Mavs?

    Mavsman grabs a mic from ringside: I will not have these two disrespecting me, I am the future writer of the year 2018 champion and these two think itís alright to cut me off while Iím speaking.

    Steve: You just fucked with the tournament bracket, and by all rights I should remove you from the tournament.

    This gets a mild pop

    Steve: However, I figure instead Iíll just take one of wrestlings clichťs and use it here instead, the second round match will see Mavsman take on Skulduggery and JacobWrestledGod in a triple threat match (The Crowd cheers). ďSo Skul, Jacob if you have any lingering anger towards Mavs for interrupting, think you can save it for the next showĒ?

    Skul and Jacob nod from the ring as Mavs look on concerned as Steveís music hits and he heads to the back.

    I wanted to do something different for at least one of the matches, sue me.

    Itís a shame that Ben didnít want to be a part of the tournament, but the matches were already set and the stats already gathered, so a forfeit was the only option.

    That said, while he may not have wanted to be in the tournament, he still gets a card.

    Like I said, it is a shame he is out of the tournament, he actually had some great stats, reaching the top ten.

    Waffle popped in for New Japanís G1 Climax and outside of a few FoF appearances, that would be his year. I think as far as the first round goes, the feedback is pretty much the same for everyone, just need to write more. But it ainít always possible.

    Firstly, Iím pretty sure that was his avatar, I had it on the unfinished cards from last March and April. Overall not too bad a set of stats there, but ultimately, the reset fucked him. Thatís the best way to put it.

    And thus the first round is at a close, moving on to round two are

    Don Franc
    And me

    There are some exciting match ups ahead of us, but right now, it is time I bid you all a fond farewell. My deepest commiserations to the writers who did not make it through the first round, hope you can still enjoy the rest of the series and to everyone, I hope you have all enjoyed todayís matches and I will see you next time.

    Gotta say, the reset may have saved you from losing your own tournament in the first round! IIRC, Penny had a great start here it was just a shame he never made it back after the reset. Reckon he'd possibly even have been on the main page already.
