Well folks, it’s that time of year. No, not when we eat fish every Friday because they’re the only animals on Noah’s Ark who don’t have any feelings. It’s bracket time! If it wasn’t for March Madness, we sports fans wouldn’t have anything to do at all.
So let’s drag this bracket concept kicking and screaming into professional wrestling! We’re looking to determine the best WWE Champion in history, and we want to do so with your help. We’ve seeded 31 of the 43 WWE Champions by the length of their combined title reigns (not including World Hvt Championship reigns, as that belt has been around for a cup of coffee compared to the prestigious WWE Championship). Through a series of polls, we’ll ask you to move these champions onto the next round until we’ve crowned a winner.
To keep things interesting, we’ve decided that, rather than plop Mankind directly into the No. 32 seed position automatically, we would have a play-in game to determine who longest-reigning champion Bruno Sammartino would face in his opening around match. Vote for your favorite, based on any criteria you wish! Once No. 32 is established, we’ll rock and roll, giving you about 48 hours to vote before moving onto the next round. Happy tournamenting!
