Cageside Seats Pro Wrestling Tournament Greatest Matches First Round Schedule

First we nominated. Then we set the field. Then we determined match-ups. Then we made the bracket.

Now we drop the schedule (for the first round, anyway).

The Cageside Seats Pro Wrestling Tournament is back in your life ... almost. Today we reveal the exact date each first round match-up will take place so you don't have to wonder aimlessly, awaiting that 5-12 match to see if a big upset is brewing.

As always, we want to be sure to thank you for sharing your time with us and participating all along the way. This one is not only going to be fun but hopefully informative. I get the feeling the votes will be a LOT closer this time, too.

We shall see.
