Showdown FAQs

What is this?
A giant bracket tournament of female wrestling personalities.

What qualifies someone as a "wrestling personality"?
In this case, being involved in the wrestling industry in any way. Champions, Tough Enough/Diva Search contestants, Nitro Girls, indy wrestlers, Snooki, etc.

What is the criteria of these polls?
There is no criteria. Just pick which you favor more.

Why are there so many less-than-hot women in some of these polls?
There are over 400 women in this thing. In the sport/non-sport of wrestling/entertaining, the average-at-bests typically outnumber the 8s, 9s and 10s. Which means that the further we go into the showdown, the more attractive the women in it will become. This showdown is booze.

So is every female wrestling personality ever in this showdown?
No. A few names on my original list were cut because I couldn't backtrace them to find pictures. I didn't hunt down the websites of every wrestling company in America and record their rosters, so I'm sure there are tons of women that didn't appear in my research. And I wouldn't doubt there are hundreds of foreign female wrestling personalities that I failed to find as well.

Why don't I know any of these women?
Because you know of only a fraction of the planet's female wrestling personalities. And this showdown doesn't even include all of the planet's female wrestling personalities, so just think of how few female wrestling personalities you really know. Now go study.

When will I get to vote between women I know of?
Assuming your knowledge of the topic at hand is typical or close to it, the further we advance into the showdown, the more women you will know of.

How long do the polls stay open for?
Roughly a week. There's no option to set the polls to lock after a set amount of time, so they will "officially" end whenever I can get to the computer to assess the results, which I will try to do a week after posting them (give or take any number of hours, probably fewer than 24).

How often do new polls go up?
Roughly every week. When one set of polls closes, another set opens.

What happens if a poll ends in a draw?
I'll pick which girl I favor more and send them through. It's an easy way to settle it. Plus, if both girls end up with 20 votes each, it's obvious that you all failed at your task which will force me to do it for you.


Any other questions, feel free to ask.

Oh, and before you ask - I don't know how long this showdown will take to conclude. You can figure it out by skimming text and doing math if you're interested enough. I'm not.

How long will this run then? Will we crown a winner in 2011?

But, since you asked anyway... I plan on posting a page of polls a week. That's 24 polls to vote in over a 7 day period. Plenty of time to get all your votes in. 224 first round polls means approximately 9 weeks to get through round 1. Approximately 5 weeks for round 2. Approximately 2 weeks for round 3. Approximately 1 week for round 4. And then we're down to the final 14, which will take approximately 4 weeks to get through. So in total, it SHOULD take approximately 21 weeks (approximately 5 months).

Length shouldn't really be an issue here. All we're doing is voting for our favorite girls. It's not like we're in a hurry to crown a winner. And it's not like we'll become exhausted after a month of these. It's just a bunch of pointing and clicking, often with minimal thinking even being involved. Look at some girls, decipher which have the larger set of breasts, then click.

But to answer your question: Yes, we will crown a winner this year.


So that's the plan, meaning that's how it's looking like it will pan out at the moment. Timing is subject to change.

Matte, it may be too much of a pain but could you sticky a thread with the results as the polls conclude?

No problem. Good idea, too.

This means that each time new polls go up, there will be 23 on the first page and 1 flooding over onto page 2. Just so everyone knows.

I'm going to start pinning the active polls so that old polls don't get mixed in and confuse everyone.

And because I'm kind of OCDish about things, I'm knocking the polls-per-week down to 23 so that all the pinned/"important" threads can be on page 1. Starting next week.

Have there been any shutouts yet? I know there have been blowouts, and there have certainly been things that SHOULD have been shutouts....but have any materialized?

Nope. Everyone has gotten at least 1 vote so far. Alexzandra and Fate were the only ones to get ONLY 1 vote, but they did still get 1 vote.

Here's a RAQ (appropriate in a sub-forum that's at least 1/4th about Racks). Rick's Asked Question:

"Are the photos in the voting threads being purposely portioned out with later rounds in mind? That is to say, are the two pics per girl being seen in Round 1 different from/lesser than the pics that might pop up in later rounds where more hotness is needed, or are there two pics per girl and that's it for all future voting rounds?"

The answer to this question might impact my participation in these threads. I probably didn't need to drop the Kimona striptease video in during her foregone conclusion first-round vote, but knowing if I should hold out on early round votes, save super-hotness back for later rounds, or whatever would inform my motivation to re-tracking-down my favorite smut to post in support of my favorite broads....

I plan on getting new pictures for each round, and yes, I purposely used some lackluster photos in round 1.

Take Stacy Keibler, for instance. I used this picture...



...instead of this picture...



...because it's not like Stacy is going to lose in round 1 regardless of what pictures I post of her. She's Stacy Keibler and she's up against some indy girl who none of us know of. In later rounds, she may be up against Torrie Wilson or Trish Stratus, Velvet Sky or Madison Rayne. Better pictures (and probably more; maybe 4-6 per girl... maybe even some videos?) will be found and posted at that point.

Plus, round 1 pictures were searched for and compiled as quickly as they could be. So many girls I don't care about, but I had to track them down anyway. Future rounds will be more fun to find pictures for, because I'll be looking at Madison Rayne, Mickie James, Lita and Gail Kim instead of Dixie Carter, Linda McMahon, Cynthia Moreno and Nicole Bass.

I hope that answers your RAQ. It sounds right in my head.

Posting some polls now because, why not? The other polls will stay open alongside the new ones for the regular length of time (a week-ish) starting tonight.

Why are we doing three-ways all of a sudden? We're going to be losing people we shouldn't be losing yet.

I hope no one minds moving on a little early to the next set of polls. The current ones are all mostly decided at this point anyway. One or two fights still going on, but otherwise, it's pretty much over.

I'll stick to the 1-week time frame better once we get to round 2, I promise. Most of round 1 has been weighted pretty obviously, which means we've been seeing who the winners are much earlier than 1 week after polls have been put up. When a huge majority of the polls are something like 34-8 (or 26-3-7 in the case of 3-ways*), I think it's fair to call it and move on.

Only 3 more sets of round 1 polls (the set I'm posting tonight is included in those 3), then onto round 2, where the real action begins!

*No, there won't be anymore 3-ways. It was a one-time thing to keep round 1 interesting during its long stretch of "meh" polls, and an easy way to stuff more names into less polls, shortening the length of round 1 overall.

How many Nitro Girls are in the showdown?
19 Nitro Girls in total, but Bertha Faye (Beef), Kimberly Page (Kimberly), Stacy Keibler (Skye) and Sharmell Huffman (Paisley) were all listed by their non-Nitro Girl names.

And how many Diva Search girls?
35 Diva Search Girls in total, which includes the likes of Christy Hemme, Maria Kanellis, Michelle McCool, Layla El, Maryse Ouellet, Eve Torres, etc. Some pretty well-established names did come from the Diva Search. Of course, the swimsuit models who add nothing to the business balance it out.

Can you name all of them?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitro_Girls
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WWE_Diva_Search

EDIT: Putting a new poll up right now in place of a another one where one of the choices has already advanced under a different name. That brings the Diva Search total up to 35. I didn't have the winner of the first Diva Search in the showdown (I simply overlooked her because the contest was internet-only and all she did upon winning was pose for a photoshoot), so this was her opportunity at a way in.
