The Round of 32 in the Cageside Seats Greatest Finisher Tournament is officially in the books, which means it's time to look ahead to the Sweet Sixteen. We don't want to waste an entire day on the posting of the schedule, seeing as there are just eight match-ups to look forward to, so we're going to post the schedule on the same day of the first match-up in this round.
Because damn it, let's keep this train rolling.
Here's the schedule:
Tues., June 25: (1) Sweet Chin Music vs. (12) O-Face
Wed., June 26: (2) F-5 vs. (11) Burning Hammer
Thurs., June 27: (7) Top Turnbuckle Brainbuster vs. (14) Vadersault
Fri., June 28: (1) Flying Elbow Drop vs. (4) Lion Tamer
Sat., June 29: (2) Diamond Cutter vs. (3) Sharpshooter
Sun., June 30: (1) Tombstone vs. (12) Steiner Screwdriver
Mon., July 1: (1) Stone Cold Stunner vs. (5) Gore
Tues., July 2: (2) DDT vs. (3) Perfectplex
It's really something else that we're down to just 16 Finishers remaining and four -- count 'em, four -- double digit seeds remain. Then again, the O-Face, the Burning Hammer, the Vadersault, and the Steiner Screwdriver are all formidable foes that their opposition will find difficult to dispose of, despite much higher rankings.
If we're being honest, though, it looks unlikely any of the four will make it to the Elite Eight.
We shall find out, however, starting with the O-Face, which takes on the Sweet Chin Music in today's match-up. Remember to head on over and vote in that match-up when polls open at 5 a.m. CT and before they close at midnight.
