WWE News: Midcard Madness
Thanks to Charlie Groenewegen for this graphic.

We are down to just the final eight men in the WWE Midcard Madness tournament.

This tournament started with 40 men who do not call the main event, nor the unemployment line, home. Some upsets took place, and some absolute blowouts have occurred. All in all, these eight men are considered to be eight of the most popular men in WWE, excluding those in the main event scene right now.

The interesting thing to note about the eight men who have survived is that they are all eight of the top seeds in this entire bracket. I don't know if that is a testament to the seeding or the fact that these eight are simply on a different level than the others, but it has turned into a scenario where chalk may decide this tournament.

Before the seeds worry you, remember that original seedings suggested four different regions—named for RAW, Smackdown, NXT and Superstars.

Essentially, it would be the equivalent of the top two seeds in the NCAA bracket meeting in the regional final. The two-seed matched with the No. 1 overall seed is technically the No. 5 overall seed. Therefore, don't let a one vs. five scare you and fear a mistake.

With all that said, let's glance back to the previous round.
