Also, stop trying to push Kimona. She's not bye-worthy over Medusa, Steph, Melissa, or Kong. She's barely beating a diva-search winner who nearly nobody remembers but who has a great ass.

FYI: to get down to 64 from 106 (instead of from 105), you don't add a bye, Matte. You take one away.

22 byes leaves 84 women. 42 winners + 22 byes = 64.

I'm shocked that Sarita and Rosita get byes.

Not complaining about it. Just very surprised that they are held in such high regard.

1) People voting based on who I rallied behind in previous rounds is fucking stupid. Vote for which girl you like best, not which girl you think you will piss me off by voting for, because you won't. I don't care if Mia advances over Kimona, just because I thought Kimona should advance over Koeppe. Stop being so petty.

2) Kimona/Koeppe. Kimona advanced. Sorry if that pisses you off. It was the last poll of the set that I tallied up because it was the closest and it still had votes coming in. Yup, still had votes coming in and I let those votes count. If I wanted to rig the poll, I would have locked it two days earlier when Kimona was winning, or I would have made some fake accounts and stuffed her box (heh). And yea, I was the tiebreaking vote. Read the FAQs, that's in there.

3) I know some of you are just kidding around, but for anyone who is serious in your hatred of my bracketing, whip up a bracket of your own and hand it over. Less work for me, and a perfect bracket because it's made by you.

8 polls each week for the next 4 weeks. Round 5 begins in a month.

Or maybe 8 polls each half-week, depending on how the votes end up looking, which would have round 5 beginning in two weeks.

I'm contemplating something a little different for this round. The first 8 polls have already been posted, but I was thinking of posting the next 8 polls tonight, then the next 8 polls maybe Thursday, then the last batch over the weekend. All the polls (32 at that point) will remain open for a week following that weekend.

I wouldn't go that quick. Maybe do the next 8 on Thursday. The next 8 on Monday when you close the first 8. And the the final 8 on Thursday closing the second 8. Leave the last 16 open until Wednesday and then post the first 8 of the next round on Wednesday and do full weeks for the rest of the tourney.

Maybe I'll post another 8 tonight, then close both 8 mid-week next week, then post the remaining 16 and leave them open for a week. Yea, I think that makes sense. Maybe it's just me, but 8 polls isn't much, especially when compared to 23 in previous rounds, so I think two sets of 16, a week for each, works. 8 more polls to come tonight. Round 5 in about 2 weeks, and all polls will remain open for a week until the end of the showdown.

EDIT: My purpose for doing this isn't to rush past round 4, it's just that a majority of the 8 polls already have pretty decisive winners, so I figure having 16 polls open at once instead of just 8 will give us more to do during the week. A lot of the usual discussion that happens in these polls has already come and gone in these 8, so another 8 joining in and remaining open with the previous 8 for a week's time seems appropriate.

Round 5 will feature 1 set of 16 polls, open for a week.

Round 6 will feature 1 set of 8 polls, open for a week.

Round 7 will feature 1 set of 4 polls, open for a week.

Round 8 will feature 1 set of 2 polls, open for a week.

And round 9 will be the final 1-on-1 poll to decide the winner, open for a week.

Round 9 won't need a week. Velvet will have a clear victory in just a few hours.

I think these are the statements and arguments that seem to be getting used most frequently in the showdowns by lots of people.



How the fuck is ____________ winning?

___________ is so much hotter.


___________ has made far greater contributions to the industry.


The (small #) of people who didn't vote for ________ are idiots/gay/fucktards/etc.

Fuck you Matte.

Based on the results so far I really hope we don't have Trish vs Mickie in the next round. That would be a tragically early matchup.

I'd love to see Molly vs Mickie, but don't think that would make sense next round.

Molly vs Rayne/Victoria winner
Lita vs Mickie
Trish vs Ivory/Melissa
Sky vs Kim/Beth

Molly vs Mickie and Trish vs Velvet

I was contemplating seeding the Elite 8 based on your votes.

If I just continued doing things my own way, I'd probably go with something like...

Trish vs. Melissa/Ivory
Mickie vs. Victoria/Madison
Velvet vs. Sunny/Lita
Molly vs. Gail/Beth

So, should I do that, or leave the seeding up to votes?

I hesitate to offer my advice, on the grounds that I've offered it once or twice before, and Matte actually took it... that creates the impression that my opinion matters more than everybody else's just because I'm footing the bill for you being here.

In matters such as this, I mostly just appreciate that Matte's done a shit-ton of leg work on this, and he can bracket things however he wants as a result.

If -- IF -- I were to offer an opinion, it'd be that the Elite Eight is no time to get away from the Vaguely Appropriate Match-Uppery that we've seen in past rounds. No bracketing out of spite, or purely by popularity... just pairings that make some sort of convoluted "sense" and put a man to a test when he votes...

For me, those pairings can't even be determined yet, due to the closeness of some votes... but it seems like Trish vs. Lita/Sunny would be a good match-up in the "Attitude Era Launching" Region... Mickie vs. Gail/Beth would be good in a "Chicks Who Actually Did It in WWE, Even if They Did It Better Elsewhere" Region... Molly vs. Ivory/Melissa would be good for a "Internet Appreciatorizatorizing For Underappreciationitude" Region... and Velvet vs. Victoria/Rayne will satisfy for a "Yes, Of Course TNA Counts" Region...

But that's just one man's opinion....

Since Dev and Rick both came up with the same Elite 8 polls, those are the polls I'll go with. Rick's explanation makes enough sense for me.

But before those polls are posted, the current polls need decisive winners. Currently, Victoria is up 41-37 over Madison, Melissa is up 42-39 over Ivory, Sunny is up 42-38 over Lita, and Gail and Beth are tied at 38-38. I'd say all those polls are still somewhat up in the air at this point. The remaining polls all have decisive winners.

Elite 8 will be posted on Sunday.

^Riight. They probably promised you blow jobs or something.

They're not bad if Melissa and Beth win I guess as they make for some interesting match-ups of Melissa vs Molly and Beth vs Mickie James. Trish vs Sunny could be interesting, but I suspect a blow out (would have been vs Lita as well). Velvet vs Victoria is less interesting but Victoria has been surprisingly strong.

I suspect Molly, Trish, Velvet and Mickie would still be the F4. I don't know if I should try reverse psychology here or not but...

Trish vs Velvet
Molly vs Mickie

Would be my semi-final bracket. Or would it...muhahahahahahahahaha!
