BJ Whitmer VS Sonjay Dutt
Sonjay would put up a valiant fight, but Whitmer is still wrestling after having his neck broken from a piledriver on the ring apron. To come back after that shows incredible fortitude and incredible stupidity. Meaning he's not going to let anything stand in his way. Whitmer picks up the victory.
D-Von Dudley VS Paul Bunyan
As tall and insurmountable as Paul Bunyan may seem, the Tallest Canadian Ever (which I've since found out is bullshit; have a look at Mr. Edouard Beaupre. Until this moment, I had no idea he existed, but I'm not sure I would've put him in the tournament if I had; there's no real record of his wrestling experience, other than beating people as a side show man, and more importantly, his whole life (and indeed, the 86 years after his death) were all exploitation because he died while working for the circus. And now, let's continue that sentence I was in the middle of:) would fall like a Redwood, because D-Von is swole, son. And he has experience breaking tables. What's a tree (or a giant lumberjack) to that? (Also, I want to take a second to say Rest In Peace to Paul Bunyan, aka Garry Robbins, who passed away on December 11.)
Antonino Rocca VS Waldo Von Erich
A clash between two old-schoolers; who wins? Antonino. He was one of the first high-flyers in the game, held regional versions of the AWA World Title and Waldo made his bones more as a tag-team guy. Gotta go with the ex-Brazilian soccer dude.
Shad Gaspard VS Big Rocco (aka Big Tilly)
Big Rocco fittin' 2 git Timbaland'd out. Shad FTW.
BJ Whitmer defeats Sonjay Dutt
D-Von Dudley defeats Paul Bunyan
Antonino Rocca defeats Waldo Von Erich
Shad Gaspard defeats Big Rocco / Tilly
