As some of you know, I have my own podcast as well, it's all about Philly sports and save for Jon who roots for the Eagles, no one here cares about the topic so I don't often talk about it. THAT IS UNTIL NOW!

Last year, some of you may remember the bracket we ran for sports movies (which was won by Rocky, but remember it's a Philly sports show so) This year, we chose wrestling themes (the other choices were greatest sports teams, best sports uniforms, and re-doing the sports movie bracket to get the stink off from the old show we had that we like to not reference. So, we've got 64 spots, but more than that with "play-ins" of them.

The play ins are not what you think, as all but one are about deciding which theme was better for a single person of them:

Hulk Hogan: Real American vs Voodoo Child
Triple H: My Time vs The Game
Eddie Guerrero: Latino Heat vs I Lie, I Cheat, I Steal
Randy Orton: Burn in My Light vs Voices
CM Punk: This Fires Burn vs Cult of Personality
Kurt Angle: Medal (WWE) vs Gold Medal (TNA)
Chris Beniot "Whatever" vs Goldust "Gold-Lust"

The rest of the bracket has been decided. The three of us ranked them on how good they are, how iconic are they, and are they were they made for the wrestler (Pantera's Walk for Rob Van Dam is great, but it wasn't created for him so that almost evened it out)

I'm posting this to get ahead, the website is being a pain so coping the votes code is taking more time that I had hoped.

I'll post once the bracket and polls are up.

(Yeah I know this is a copy paste from EFK, but a decent amount of guys don't frequent there (or are banned) so I'm going to post here too!)

I watched the film, I didn't mark for that old 80's wrestling until I got older.
