    TWO Wrestling Survivor FAQ

    Back in 2005/2006 I ran a series of polls to find out TWO's favourite wrestler. In the end, Kurt Angle pipped The Rock to the post at the last minute, after ten months of polls and voting brought it to between those two.

    Now I intend to do it again, four years after the first tournament started, to see how both TWO and wrestling has changed over the years.

    Here are the rules for the tournament:

    • We start with wrestlers representing each letter of the alphabet tHE first names decide which letter a wrestler represents, i.e. Chavo Guerrero would be a C. With wrestlers called "The", they go to their second name, so The Undertaker goes to the U bracket.
    • 1st Round - You get an unlimited number of votes to give to any wrestler you don't like on the list. After 24 hours I work out the average number of votes per wrestler, those who have more votes than the average are then eliminated.
    • Subsequent Rounds - You get one vote this time, and vote for the wrestler you don't like, in the hope to eliminate them from the competition. The bottom two wrestlers will then be eliminated each round.
    • Final Round - When there are two/three wrestlers remaining, you vote for your favourite to try and get them to win the round and advance to the Ultimate Final. The runners-up will be put into another poll after Z is done where a lucky loser will be promoted to the final.
    • The Ultimate Final - The winners of the Letter Rounds and the Runners-Up poll meet in the final, with the votes again going to your least favourite until the Final Final. There will be 2 eliminations per round from the start.


    I'll hopefully get the new version started tomorrow or Sunday, so keep your eyes peeled on the Tournament Polls Forum.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Some examples for newbies to it:

    I'm just a tiny bit confused about one thing.....where does the alphabetised list come from?

    I assume just generally from Chris choosing a huge bunch of wrestlers, past and present, whose names start with a letter. Click on the third link for an idea.

    You could say that, but they will be pretty comprehensive. The lists will (mostly) be huge so there's as much choice as reasonably possible, and Chris knows his stuff so he wont miss anyone major.

    Not quite random, but as Jimmy said, it's a list of wrestlers past and present that I pick out as being worthy of inclusion. Pretty much anyone I've heard of really.

    EDIT: And yeah, Chris knows his stuff . Although I did manage to somehow miss Arn Anderson out last time...
