What's up, ladies and gentlemen? My name is Eric Kanes, and March Madness continues on Bleacher Report as I welcome you to Round 1 of the "Greatest WrestleMania Match of All Time" tournament that I am hosting this year.
We’ve got four head-to-head matchups. Vote how you want by picking the match that you feel is better. It’s your choice. Vote in the comment section and feel free to justify each pick. Voting will be open for 96 hours.
Now, quite a few people have asked why Mark Henry has his own Bracket named after him in this tournament. To tell you the truth, it's because the man is a complete badass. How many other people are a threat to win the Royal Rumble despite going 13 years without an elimination? How many other people get away with having the word "ass" in their theme song these days? You can't stop Mark Henry! And let's be honest, how many others can rock the Kool-Aid outfit and look even more badass than the real Kool-Aid man?
Note: These are not the only eight matches involved in the tournament. There is a total of 32 matches involved and this is the fourth and final of four first round brackets. You can view the complete list of matches involved and the complete list of rules right here:
As of right now, 3/15/11, there are about 24 hours left to vote on the Austin Bracket. I added an extra 24 hours for all of the brackets for the first round because there are so many matches. You can vote on the first 8 out of 32 matches right here:
The Michaels Bracket is out as well with 48 hours left. You can vote on the second set of 8 matches right here:
And of course, here is The Rock Bracket with 72 hours left to vote. This has been a very intense bracket so far as two of the most historic WrestleMania matches (Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker [WM 26] and Steve Austin vs. The Rock [WM 17]) go head to head:
And without any further ado, here are the eight matches involved in the first round of the Henry Bracket.
