WWE/TNA Mark Madness: John Cena and the No. 1 Seeds
Mark Madness is running wild, and in the spirit of bracket season, the wildly popular Mark Madness pro wrestling simulation tournament has returned! For the first time ever, the No. 1 seeds have been revealed on B/R Video, with the rest of the 64-wrestler field to be released this selection Sunday!
Let’s kick off the festivities a bit early by highlighting the top seeds in each bracket and how they earned their spot.
John Cena spent another year carrying the WWE in 2011, and while he did receive some much-needed help from CM Punk midway through the year, no WWE Superstar has had as much of an economic impact on the WWE’s business as the former doctor of Thuganomics. Cena’s match against the Rock next month at WrestleMania figures to be the biggest in the history of the business. John Cena will look to win his second consecutive Mark Madness tournament as he was victorious last year by less than one percent!
CM Punk’s memorable worked-shoot promo last year set the stage for a meteoric rise to the top of the WWE, and Punk has not looked back since. A No. 2 seed last year, Punk has been elevated to top-seed status after winning the WWE Championship twice in 2011, and still laying claim to that championship headed into WrestleMania.
Randy Orton has seen somewhat of a dropoff due to injury, but he was called upon early in 2011 to be the face of the SmackDown brand. Winning multiple World Heavyweight Championships in 2011, Orton continued to perform admirably before dropping the title to a white-hot Mark Henry.
Meanwhile, in TNA, Bobby Roode has cemented himself as the top guy in the company. His budding feud with former longtime tag-team partner James Storm is gearing up to be one of the best rivalries in all of pro wrestling. Last year, a TNA wrestler in A.J. Styles made it all the way to the championship with the backing of the Internet wrestling fan base. Could we see similar results for Roode this year?
Tune in to B/R Video for a breakdown on the No. 1 seeds as the most exciting tournament in March commences! Check back with Bleacher Report on Sunday for the complete bracket!
