Breaking Down The Establishment Kevin Jacobs 24 Apr 2008

If you look at the percentages, my track record may be pretty bad. I only picked one match of nine correct, but one ended in a no contest, one was a complete crapshoot, and one didn't even happen. I did call the Fujita victory in the American Dream, though, and the only number that matters is the five large I walked away with that night.

I had my eye on a Buick Skylark I saw for sale for a price that would catch the bargainer's eye, but one thing stopped me from buying that Skylark right there on the spot: The Rampage Group Stage. I figure that old Barry's on a roll, and by Shockwave, I could be pocketing enough to get a Prius. Imagine that, huh? Energy conscious Barry riding around in style--I'd have to brush the ladies off with my mustache comb!

Anyway, here's how my card looks.

Aimz 2 - 1 - 0
Van Jahan Surgoth 0 - 3 - 0
Toga 1 - 2 - 0
Karina Wolfenden 3 - 0 - 0

Aimz vs. Van Jahan Surgoth
Aimz vs. Toga
Aimz vs. Karina Wolfenden -- WW147
Van Jahan Surgoth vs. Toga -- WW147
Van Jahan Surgoth vs. Karina Wolfenden
Toga vs. Karina Wolfenden

With Aimz and Karina Wolfenden in the same bracket, I feel sorry for Van Jahan Surgoth and Toga. Karina Wolfenden has been explosive in her year here in GCW, making the semi-finals last year as Rasa. Since the U.S. Title is on the line, there's a little extra incentive to beat Karina, and my boy Aaron Fujita always has that American Dream in his back pocket. Karina is going to be on high alert, and that's when she's the most dangerous. Take it from a man with more ex-wives than marriages, Aimz and K-Wolf are women who can make a huge dent in this tournament.

Copeland 2 - 1 - 0 BYE147
Dr. John Danner 0 - 3 - 0 BYE147
Alexander Redding 3 - 0 - 0
Dorian Ryan 1 - 2 - 0

Copeland vs. Dr. John Danner

Alexander Redding vs. Dorian Ryan -- WW147

Now I'm playing it safe here. I don't know much about Copeland except that he looks extremely scary, so if you're feeling like taking a risk, he might be it, but I'm going with what I know. Alexander Redding has been looking primed to break soon. He's hungry, and he's willing to get dirty to get ahead. I was going to go Dorian Ryan as a second, having seen him experience success in GCW before, but I took another look at that Copeland picture, and sweet Jesus.

Bryan Mayhem 2 - 1 - 0
Shaman 3 - 0 - 0
The Blue Scorpion 0 - 3 - 0
Jimmy Thunder 1 - 2 - 0

Bryan Mayhem vs. Shaman
Bryan Mayhem vs. The Blue Scorpion
Bryan Mayhem vs. Jimmy Thunder -- WW147
Shaman vs. The Blue Scorpion -- WW147
Shaman vs. Jimmy Thunder
The Blue Scorpion vs. Jimmy Thunder

This is the most volatile bracket, and anything can happen in it, really, but Scorpio, to me, seems like the odd man out. He looked great against Johnny Borealis as Hot Mask in perhaps Borealis' best acting role ever, but he unluckily drew three of the biggest men in GCW. He's going to have to hope that the big men tear each other apart and he's able to slip through and steal a couple. Otherwise, I think this is going to be about Shaman and Bryan Mayhem. The two tested each other at Belmont and they're both still alive, so this isn't over.

Brad Cruz 2 - 1 - 0
Donny Diamond 1 - 2 - 0
Dynasty 2 - 1 - 0
Jet Mason 1 - 2 - 0

Brad Cruz vs. Donny Diamond
Brad Cruz vs. Dynasty -- WW147
Brad Cruz vs. Jet Mason
Donny Diamond vs. Dynasty
Donny Diamond vs. Jet Mason -- WW147
Dynasty vs. Jet Mason

This is a very interesting group in that there really is no standout star. They're all on the brink (save for the new Jet Mason), but I think of the four, Dynasty and Brad Cruz both have the look and the mic skills to make waves in GCW. Call it a hunch, but I see these two in the final sixteen, and if it gets there, I might put one of them in the final four.

Phil Atken 0 - 3 - 0
Trey Arbor 1 - 2 - 0 BYE147
Aaron Fujita 3 - 0 - 0
El Moreno 2 - 1 - 0 BYE147

Phil Atken vs. Trey Arbor
Phil Atken vs. Aaron Fujita -- WW147
Phil Atken vs. El Moreno
Trey Arbor vs. Aaron Fujita
Trey Arbor vs. El Moreno
Aaron Fujita vs. El Moreno

El Moreno's good. Really good, but my mother always told me to dance with the one that brought you. Of course, I ended up having to go to prom with my cousin that year, and he wasn't too happy about it either. Let's forget I typed that. God damn, I wish GBJ gave me a keyboard with a delete key. Gotta make due with what you got, though, right? Anyhow, Phil Atken disappointed me in the Four Square Match by not showing up. If he makes the tournament, I'll change my tune, but as it stands, I'm picking Fujita to get hotter than an El Nino warm front with Moreno's skills carrying him to the single elimination section.
