I know this would be more work for you Matte, but with the recent....questionable polling in the Oh So Sweet 16, perhaps you should go with post voting only for the last 3 rounds....

Just a thought.

If you want to spend your time making a bunch of fake accounts to ensure that your favorite girl wins this no-prize-given showdown, the options open. No chaos will ensue here, my friends.


Granted, Aliass has managed to completely twist the intent of Matte's words in his idiotic blathering of this morning (which I'm sure I'll get around to addressing later on when I have time), but the point remains that Matte's got no desire (nor should he be obligated) to consider anything that adds work/headaches for him.

I'm on board with that idea. Also, Dev should vote last to curb the spite voting. It's retarded, but obviously people are going to do it because that's the only logical explanation for Victoria to be beating Maddie or for Ivory to be within a 15 vote margin of Melissa.

I love that your defense of Dev trades in the exact kind of wankerdom that leads to spite votes against his position. Kudos!

I find it really sad that people seem to actually be voting against Dev.

What a clusterfuck. Matte, I hope you're not sorry you did this because I'm enjoying it immensely.

As for locking the boards, I'm torn. I would have joined earlier but the boards were locked (so most of you are probably wishing they were never opened) but it seems like the bot to decent newbie ratio has been about 25 to 1 the last year. They should probably be reopened as soon as this contest is over, though.

I did remember Matte's original rules set forth so long ago, I was just making a suggestion in response to all the drama set off in the Melissa/Ivory poll.

Personally, I never heard of Melissa before this poll, and frankly have voted (once) against her if "I" felt that her opponent was more attractive or one of my personal favorites (Ivory).

Not to cross below the line, but I can see how the political discussion in this country is all fucked up when we have this much arguing over women wrestlers.


Matte - Do what you think is best, I will continue to enjoy the pictures you post and hope for a few NSFW polls in the last couple of rounds.

Here are the two matchups my evil assholeness may have driven the result:

An early Kat victory. Maybe round 2

Angelina Skeletors recent elimination.

To all the haters of people the king fucked...my apologies.

Same to people who like getting bone splinters when having sex.

Creating sock accounts to pad votes is kinda sad, and far more effort than I could be bothered with, but not actually against the rules of the competition.

So I've read the advancements in this thread and the Melissa/Ivory thread. If this had happened prior to the Sweet 16, I'd just ignore it completely and move on as if nothing had happened. But since this is the Sweet 16, the point where it looks like some real discussion is going on and unsure-ish-ness of which choice to vote for at first glance is setting in, I'd kind of like the showdown to be as legitimate as it can be from this point on. With that said, I think I'll re-post Melissa/Ivory, Victoria/Madison, Gail/Beth, and Sunny/Lita. All four of those polls may not have been tampered with, but they are all pretty close, so no harm in re-doing all of them, just in case. They'll be posted and left open for a week, along with the previously posted remaining four polls that have decisive, shenanigan-free winners (Trish/Kong, Stacy/Velvet, Mickie/Maria, Molly/Daffney), which means The Elite 8 polls will be posted Sunday the 14th. And by polls, I mean polls.

I have no animosity toward anyone involved in this in any way. If you voted more than once in any of the polls this round or previously and were called out on it, don't think your vote won't be wanted in future rounds. This is a minor inconvenience at worst. This is all for fun, and if some peoples' idea of fun is rigging games to ensure they get their way in the end, then who are we to tell them their opinion is wrong? Hopefully they got it out of their system, though, as most of us have more fun doing this when everyone has only one vote to submit. I didn't ask Rick to investigate or list names, but also have no problem with him doing just that. He noticed multiple fake accounts being registered and used to vote with, so he called them out on it so the showdown could keep what tiny bit of remaining dignity it has left at this point. In the end, I think it was the right choice, otherwise the cheating would only escalate the further we advanced, and the final outcome of the showdown would be questionable at best.

In summary, if you voted more than once, you're the cause of this showdown taking one week longer than it would have taken if you hadn't. And YOU have to live with that on your conscience, not me.

Matte - I truly hate you (not really) for these match ups... My top two facing off this time instead of the finals?!?!

That'd be one way to do the semis... CMP's pairings are clearly designed to insure a final of "insanely, ball-drainingly-sexy blonde chick, whose merely-adequate wrestling skills are over-looked because of aforementioned sexiness" vs. "fat chick."

You could do it another way: Trish vs. Molly, and Mickie vs. Velvet. That would result in a final of "former WWE babe from the Golden Era" vs. "current TNA chick."

And part of me is curious to see what would happen if you did Trish vs. Mickie, and Velvet vs. Molly. Because that's one WM26 rematch (where the wrong one won for all the wrong reasons), and one match that I think is the only semi-final match I think Molly could win. If Velvet can only barely beat Victoria, I think (hope?) she's even more vulnerable against noted (relevant) wang-candy like Molly...

Then again, some delusitards around here still don't understand why Wrestling Footnote Cheerleader Melissa* isn't in the Elite Eight, so who knows if my hope for Molly is any more realistic...

Thanks for all the hard work on this Matte. It was enjoyed by all.

Now that rankings have been established, we should do this tourney again and see if it plays out the same way. :-p

Well, it's OOfficial!


Your 2011 Ultimate Diva Showdown winner is... Trish Stratus!



Second place (first is the worst, second is the best) goes to... Mickie James!



Third place (the smallest trophy) goes to... Molly Holly!



Sorry, Velvet. Fourth place gets no trophy.




Thanks for playing, everyone. It was a blast (in more than one definition of the word)! Let's do it again in 10 years...
