Match Madness – Round 1 Recap
Well, so long Roman Reigns. The #1 seed out of the Brian Pillman Region has been defeated; Jay White, who secured his entry into the tournament by winning the First Eight vote, did the deed. Other notable first round upsets include current Dragon Gate Open the Dream Gate Champion, #4 Shingo Takagi, getting knocked off by #13 Young Bucks… much like fellow Dragon Gate star Jimmy Susumu, who was easily defeated by Minoru Suzuki’s Suzuki-gun. Three #1 seeds remain, with Okada, HHH, and Jay Lethal easily fighting off challenges to advance into the second round.
Match Madness – Round 2

The Round of 32 features some very interesting matchups that shadow real life rivalries – #6 Sami Zayn vs #3 Kevin Owens for example. Two very popular former ROH stars, now wrestling at the highest stage in WWE, face off to see who will take on the winner of #7 Bayley vs #2 Brock Lesnar.
Over in the Pillman Region, current NJPW Jr Heavyweights, who made their name big on the independent scenes in the UK and US, face off in #5 Will Ospreay vs #4 Ricochet.
