A1E Announces Tag Team Tournament

As announced yesterday on A1E's Warfare (and subesquently shilled on Tom's blog - thanks Tom!), Commissioner Nathan Houston declared a tournament would be held to try and revitalize the tag division over in A1E. World Tag Team Champions Big Dog and Dan Ryan have dominated and decimated the Tag Division for the last year, and now, A1E is faced without challengers for the tag team titles.

So, we're holding an eight team invitational tournament. Tag Teams from all over the e-Wrestling world are invited to come and take a crack at the tournament, beginning in March at the Sudden Death PPV, carrying on through eight cards and the winners being crowned at our Mercury Rising PPV. The winners will then go on to face the Tag Team Champions Big Dog and Dan Ryan at the biggest show of the year, our Wrestlemania - Golden Dreams.

However, this isn't any regular tournament. This is not going to be a single-elimination tournament like most are these days. This is going to be a round robin tournament, where each team with face everyone else in the tournament, before a playoff round.

Here's how it all works.

* Teams will earn 2 points for a win. A win is a win is a win - whether it's by DQ, pinfall, countout, or submission. The winning team receives 2 points.
* Teams will earn one point for a draw. Double countouts, time limit draws, and no-contests will count as a draw.
* Teams will earn zero points for a loss.

At the end of the round robin, the top four teams with the most points will advance into the playoff round, with Team 1 facing Team 4, and Team 2 vs Team 3. The two winning teams will face each other at Mercury Rising to crown the winner of the tournament.

A sign up thread will be placed over on A1Wrestling.com, however, I realize that not everyone has an account there to post. So, all entries will be sent to me via PM either on A1, at FW, or at the ENN site, and I will update the sign up thread. I will take the first eight teams, and I'm hoping that teams from all over will come to compete.

I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to handle the writeups for the tag matches. Currently, our writing staff can only accomdate so many matches in a week, and we maintain a schedule - cards don't take a month to produce, they take a week. So, in the spirit of keeping that schedule, and adding four matches a week to our schedule for the round robin portion, I'm leaning towards short-forming the round robin matches, and then long forming the playoffs and finals. However, I'm willing to take input on this - if the majority of players would wish that all matches be long-formed, then I will take on guest writers to get that done. Please indicate when you sign up whether you'd see matches short- or long-formed.

I have goals with this tournament. I not only want to provide a fun tournament and a great angle to revive and kick start the tag division, but I want to keep it around for good. So, I would wish that the people that join the tournament give thought to joining A1E after the tournament's over. I don't just want to crown a contender and then have one match - I would like to create a sustainable tag team division, so if at least four of the teams that sign up for this thing can stick around in A1E, then that's gravy. Don't feel that if you sign up to be part of the tag team division, that you can't obtain other successes in A1E - we now allow tag team members to compete for singles titles, somewhat modifying a policy where people could only hold one title at a time.

So, if you have any questions, please feel free to pose them here, or PM me. You can read the A1E F.A.Q. at http://www.a1e.ca/faq.html if you need to know more about how the federation works.

Here's to a great tournament, and a healthy tag team division! Thanks all, for your consideratio


If you have a tag team come and play. A1E is truly at it's peak right now with a booking committee running full force, plans laid out for the next month or two, bi-weekly fully fleshed out cards and some of the best handlers in the business.

We'd love to have you all!

Bumping and thumping. Come on...take a chance and come out and play. Where is the New and Improved DX? Where are the Celtic Assassins? How often do you get an opportunity to walk in and face two of the best in the biz right out the gate?

Firefox hates your site, and I don't feel like downloading IE again. Sorry.

try that. You can register there and all RP's are done there. Talk to Beast about the whole IE vs Firefox thing on our A1E homepage. He's in charge there.

EDIT-The New site will be Firefox friendly. I just heard from Beast.

Well, SB can't tag with Brian Bruno like in the MCW tourney due to developing NAPW storylines (shhhh) but I can either

a.) make someone up to tag with him

b.) team up with an random A1E guy orrrrr anyone who'd like to team with me

But either way, yeah, I'll help out and sign up.

We've got our fill of teams for the tournament. Thanks to everyone who's come out to support it, and it should be a great one. If, for any reason, a spot becomes available, I'll post here and let everyone know.
