Cageside Seats Greatest Finisher Tournament First Round Match-Ups Announced


Announcing the first round match-ups in the Cageside Seats Greatest Finisher Tournament, which will begin on Mon., April 29, 2013.

This past weekend, we went through the nomination process for the Cageside Seats Greatest Finisher Tournament. Then, we announced the field of 64 complete with a list of the seedings. However, we did not reveal the first round match-ups, which we'll do right here.

It should be noted that after review, the decision was made to exclude the Walls of Jericho (Chris Jericho) thanks to it being so similar to the Lion Tamer (Chris Jericho), which will remain in the tournament. This means Stratusfaction (Trish Stratus) has made its way into the tournament as a 16 seed.

1. Tombstone (Undertaker) vs 16. Corkscrew Shooting Star Press (Pac)
