Here's a promo from Manolo Has Pizzazz on why you should vote for The Warriors:
"While the Kilts O' Carnage have a slight edge in technical wrestling, that advantage goes out the window since they can't match up athletically. The Warriors have more power and speed overall as a team. The game plan is for DDP and the Road Warriors to handle the majority of the action early, while interspersing quick shots of adrenaline with the Ultimate Warrior. The Ultimate Warrior is the ideal game changer for this match. Survivor Series matches showcase his strengths and hide his weaknesses. He's never lost in a match of this style. Brock Lesnar will be used when needed so as not to deplete the big man's energy reserves for late in the match. It is going to take a lot of work trying to eliminate DDP and the Road Warriors, so imagine what will happen when a tired member of the Kilts O' Carnage goes face to face with the Ultimate Warrior or Brock Lesnar. Load the spaceship with the rocket fuel, load it with The Warriors as they race to victory. What a rush!"
You knew s1rude wouldn't let it go unanswered as he puts over The Kilts O' Carnage:
"Before the first guy's entrance theme hits, Blassie is back stage using his well-known status as McMahon family friend to lobby for random wellness program screenings for the Warriors. To further throw them off their game, Piper sends Human Rights Campaign activists to Ultimate Warrior's dressing room to lobby for legalizing gay marriage - at least two of his 'bursts of fury' are spent before the match has even started. Captain Lou, exhausted from trying to keep his testosterone-enhanced charges in line and shamed by the obvious deficiencies of his wardrobe and general hygiene made obvious in comparison to the Classy one...he claims that he got a rubber band stuck on a door handle and never makes it out of the back.
"Lesnar versus Angle is a dream match we've seen before, but Kurt is the more decorated amateur and pro wrestler. He also has the benefit of not having left the pro game (he could have gone to the UFC and won belts in every division, but he and Dana could never agree on money) and the combination of experience and accolades is too much to overcome. Brock will also be distracted by Tully's attempts via twitter to convince Sable to become his new "Babydoll", that the announce team keeps talking about throughout the match.
"There are master technicians to be found throughout the Kilts roster, and one stratagem in play will be to square Warrior off with Piper. What might seem like a power imbalance on it's face is actually a case of throwing rocks at a man with machine gun. Piper's quickness and brilliance make quick work of Warrior in a match-up that sees the smark cSs crowd turn on the babyface.
"Big Van Vader sloughed off a Diamond Cutter like no more than a broken nose, and leaves a broken DDP for dead - although it may just be corpse pose.
"And that leaves the Brain Busters versus The Road Warriors. One for the ages between two of the greatest teams of all time. The Kilts will concede a power edge to the Warriors in a comparison of our tag components (barely), but we'll claim a speed and experience edge. Years of toiling with the 16 time champ and learning from the greatest managers of all time, have given Double A and T.B. the savvy to out manuever Hawk and Animal (let's face it, they've done it before) and, most importantly, the willingness to sacrifice for the greater good of the unit.
"KoC doesn't stand for Knights of Columbus, ya geeks. Bring on round 2."
