The Cageside Seats Pro Wrestling Tournament is off and running and it's been a great start so far. Hulk Hogan advanced to the field of 32 after winning his first round match-up against Big Show, though the voting was closer than most expected.
Today, the legendary Buddy Rogers is taking on the beloved Owen Hart in a tight match-up of the eight vs. nine seed. As of this writing, Hart is leading by 38 votes, so remember to go cast your vote if you have yet to do so. That poll stays open until midnight tonight.
If you're new to the party, click HERE to get caught up on all you need to know about the CSS Pro Wrestling Tournament. We're having a lot of fun with this thing so far and we hope to have a lot more.
The plan is to post one match per day until the bracket is complete. So I've decided that instead of just posting a random match each day, I would print this here handy-dandy schedule for the remainder of the first round so you know when to expect the match-ups you're most looking forward to.
I know I've got my eye on a couple, like Gorgeous George vs. Ultimate Warrior and Eddie Guerrero vs. Randy Orton.
So without further ado, check out the complete first round schedule after the jump. All match-ups will be posted at 11 a.m. ET and voting ends at midnight the same night.
