The tournament starts at the Download Festival on June 8-10, culminating in UK specials on the WWE Network on June 18 and 19. The winner gets a shot at the UK Championship. The winner of this pool gets probably nothing (though if you want Canadian snacks in the mail, I'm always game).

I think my first round picks are pretty solid. It’s anybody’s guess after that, so I’ve gone with Kenny Williams.

Is there a storyline reason for why Drew Gulak is in this tournament?

Not at the moment, but I'm guessing they're setting up something for 205 Live with Gallagher. Also Drew Gulak is awesome and makes whoever he's working with look great, so always a good choice to slot into these things.

I pretty much went with the strategy of "which one of these guys have I heard of the most" (besides Gallagher and Gulak) for every match.

Entries are closed! Since there were matches today and all. Meltzer says "the first round matches will be released on WWE's digital and social media platforms" so I'm going to add those results as the matches are released. Feel free to link to the videos in this thread.

Results from the televised matches will be added after the cards air (I'm surprised that they're not showing the UK specials live, but whatever).

EDIT: I rewrote this whole post, basically

I was out of town, so I missed brackets. I don't see how they can get Joe Coffey and not have him win. Actually, that's not true. I am holding out secret hope that Neville makes some sort of surprise appearance and wins the whole thing. Don't spoil my girlish optimism!



It's the most important meal of the day.

If our entries are any indication this is going to be a wide open tournament. I was bored so I went through and tallied all the final four, finals and winner votes.

Final Four Votes
Flash Morgan Webster and Ligero - 8 votes each
Jack Gallagher and Zack Gibson - 7 votes each
Joe Coffey and Dave Mastiff - 6 votes each
Jordan Devlin - 5 votes
Joseph Conners - 4 votes
Travis Banks and Kenny Williams - 3 votes each
James Drake - 2 votes
Drew Gulak - 1 votes
That means only Amir Jordan, Tyson T-Bone, Tucker and Ashton Smith didn't get any votes to reach the Final Four.

Finals Votes
Flash Morgan Webster - 6 votes
Joe Coffey and Dave Mastiff - 4 votes each
Zack Gibson and Ligero - 3 votes each
Jordan Devlin, James Drake, Jack Gallagher and Kenny Williams - 2 votes each
Travis Banks - 1 vote
Joseph Conners - 1 vote

Winner Votes
Flash Morgan Webster - 4
Joe Coffey, Jordan Devlin and Zack Gibson (my pick) - 2 votes each
Joseph Conners, James Drake, Ligero, Dave Mastiff and Kenny Williams - 1 vote each

So 9 out of the 16 wrestler got votes to win the whole thing. I've never looked at the other predictions this closely to see if this is common or not but that seems like a lot. Hopefully that means it's going to be a great tournament.


EDIT: Looking back at the New Japan Cup tournament only 5 wrestlers were picked to win it all so maybe this tournament is more wide open. Then again, nobody actually picked the winner of the New Japan Cup correctly so what do any of us know??

Reviewing my picks, I got 5 of the 7 (thus far) winners correct. The only problem being one of the losers was my pick to win the whole thing.

I think I’ll stick to the WM predictions in the future (2 in a row, baby!)

I'm in the exact same boat. However, my pick to win also lost in the first round of the New Japan Cup and I managed to finish in a 3-way tie for first. You don't have to be good if everyone else sucks too!

They're posting matches here and I'm updating the brackets as they do so.

There was a graphic showing all the results of the first round matches during the PPV last night so our brackets have been updated accordingly.

I cancelled my WWE Network subscription tonight. Since I won't be watching the tournament (which was held today), I updated and completed the brackets. If you want to go into the UK specials unspoiled, don't go check on your progress.

I don't think it's a spoiler to say that once again, my personal predictions did worse than my random coin flips. But it was closer this time!

Heh... I'm just picturing Raw and Smackdown trying to one-up each other by producing bigger, better, and more reverent promos for everyone returning from injuries.
