The Cageside Seats (CSS) Pro Wrestling Tournament continues today with a first round match-up pitting number one seed The Rock against number 16 seed Jeff Jarrett.
One of the greatest of all time, The Rock's career spanned roughly seven years as an active in ring worker. He started slow but gradually built himself up as one of the best talkers, if not the best, in the history of the business. His strength was his ability to work the crowd but he could also have incredible matches with the right people, like his memorable feuds with other greats of his time, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H.
Jarrett, meanwhile, found a great deal of success throughout his career but he's done so with asterisks surrounding all of it. He's a talented worker inside the ring, capable of working with whomever is across from him but his gimmick never really caught on and his biggest successes came in a promotion he founded with his father, Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling. Still, he's accomplished quite a bit in the industry.
You can imagine how meetings between these two went, though they only ever briefly crossed paths. The big question is whether or not Jarrett has what it takes to pull the upset.
