Season 2 Round 5 Thread: Extreme Championship Wrestling

Post by Robareid » Wed Sep 09, 2015 5:08 pm

Welcome to the final round of the second season of 'Well You Know Something, Brother?'. The category that's been chosen from the wheel of fortune for this round is *drumroll* the the land of extreme ECW.

NOTICE: For the purposes of this quiz, WWECW doesn't count as ECW.

I forgot to put that on the form at first, so if that changes your answers then feel free to go back and change them.

Armbar Division

Image

A distinct lack of end of season drama in the Armbar Division, with positions staying exactly the same way they have been since the end of Round 3. Congratulations to Joe Gagne who takes the Gold in the Armbar Division, and the Real Hero and Alan4L who take the Silver and Bronze respectively. Rob Viper and Dave Muscarella are both relegated to Division 2.

Things didn't change in Armbar Division 2 either. Case and Sean both earned promotion to A1, and Lawrence got relegated down to AB, and with a season full of zeros Taylor is removed from WYKSB?.

Bodyslam Championship

Image

Well this is more like it! While Fray's grip on the Gold had been secure for a while (and congratulations) there was a lot of movement in the rest of B1. Just five points separated 2nd to 6th, with Tanner managing to climb from 4th to seal the Silver on virtue of least missed rounds and Chris climbing up from bottom of the league to grab the Bronze ahead of Dylan who fell from 2nd out of the medals. Despite making gains and finishing just two points shy of 2nd Ben got relegated along with Bonski who fell from 3rd.

In B2, Shining Wiz and Cal Burnside (just) managed to achieve promotion, while Alex climbed out of the relegation zone to the detriment of Blacktus. Or it would be to is detriment, but due to the lack of activity in the AB he's staying up as there aren't enough people to get promoted. Chris is removed.

Argentine Backbreaker

Image

Dan, Ru and Jer are all promoted. Alex, Brandon and Jack are all removed.




For anybody that has been removed due to a season of inactivity, just message me at any point and I'll add you back in.
