We've finally got our first upset, though it's a small one, in the Cageside Seats Greatest Matches Tournament, with "Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H, SummerSlam 2002" advancing past the first round.

Upset!

It took a while to get one but the first upset in the Cageside Seats Greatest Matches Tournament has happened. It was a small one, seeing as a nine seed went over an eight, but it's an upset, nonetheless.

Indeed, "Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H, SummerSlam 2002" defeated "Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart, SummerSlam 1994" by an extremely close score of 32-27.

It's fitting, too, because both are worthy of advancing. In this tournament, it seems, death isn't playing as big a part as it did in the Greatest Wrestler tourney.
