    TNA Madness: Match by Match Results and the Winner Is...

    2 of 46

      Welcome, welcome!

      Here, I have the full results for the entire TNA Madness: 32-Card Stud Tournament which started April 1 and concluded May 5.

      This tournament was fun while it lasted and had plenty of loyal, weekly voters and for that I'd like to thank any and all who take part in voting in this tournament. Thank you!

      This slideshow will reveal all the votes each wrestler received in each match they participated in.

      The results for the final round in this tournament are also on this very slideshow.

      AJ Styles vs. Kurt Angle.

      The winner of the TNA Madness: 32-Card Stud Tournament is...  

    Round 1 Matches and Results

    3 of 46

      The Round 1 matchups and results are as follows...

    Hulk Hogan Bracket

    4 of 46

      The following matchups were contested in the Hulk Hogan Bracket.

    Sting vs. Eric Young

    5 of 46

      Sting: 30 votes

       

      Eric Young: 3 votes

       

      I knew Sting would beat Eric Young in this round but at the same time, wouldn't have been surprised if Eric Young got the upset over Sting.

      Sting is a bigger draw than EY and while Young does his comedy bits on iMPACT! I didn't expect him to get a lot of votes.

      This matchup could've been closer but Eric would have had to dropped his comedy act.

       


    Gunner vs. Rob Terry

    6 of 46

      Gunner: 18 votes

       

      Rob Terry: 15 votes

       

      This one was close, but it was the TV Champion, Gunner who would advance into Round 2.

      I'm not all surprised that Gunner won. Actually, I wanted him to win over Terry, I'm a fan of Gunner's.

      Both are big guys, both are in Immortal, both held the TV title. I'm sure Big Rob would have won had Gunner not been TV Champion.

       


    Abyss vs. Hernandez

    7 of 46

      Hernandez: 17 votes

       

      Abyss: 16 votes

       

      I thought Abyss was going to advance over Hernandez to be honest. I like Abyss more than I like Hernandez, but Super Mex was too much.

      This matchup was very close and either man could have won. In the end, the tie breaking vote went to Hernandez and he would advance into Round2.

    Magnus vs. Jeff Hardy

    8 of 46

      Jeff Hardy: 20 votes

       

      Magnus: 13 votes

       

      I thought Jeff would be completely dominant over Magnus. I didn't expect Magnus to get as many votes as he did.

      Most people who voted for Magnus said it was because of Jeff's personal issues. If Jeff never had those issues would he have blown Magnus away in votes?

    Eric Bischoff Bracket

    9 of 46

      The following matchups were contested in the Eric Bischoff Bracket.

    RVD vs. Brian Kendrick

    10 of 46

      Rob Van Dam: 28 votes

       

      Brian Kendrick: 5 votes

       

      RVD got an easy win over Kendrick. For Kendrick to beat RVD he would need a lot of changes.

      He would need a heel turn, a gimmick change and to be on TV on a daily basis. I'm not at all surprised by the outcome. 

    James Storm vs. Jeff Jarrett

    11 of 46

      James Storm: 22 votes

       

      Jeff Jarrett: 11 votes

       

      Early in the first round Storm had a big lead. Soon enough, Jarrett made a big comeback and almost had first at one point. In the end Storm came out on top in a big way.

      I thought this one would've been closer and I wouldn't've been surprised if "The King of the Mountain" reigned supreme. I was glad to see "Cowboy" James Storm win.

    Kazarian vs. Matt Hardy

    12 of 46

      Kazarian: 28 votes

       

      Matt Hardy: 5 votes

       

      Kazarian is one of my favorites in TNA. I didn't expect him to get such a landslide victory over Matt Hardy though. Matt only had five votes. Five.

      He had the same amount of votes as Brian Kendrick. This match was a big blow out with Kazarian advancing into Round 2.

    Daniels vs. Amazing Red

    13 of 46

      Daniels: 30 votes

       

      Amazing Red: 3 votes

       

      Wow. The Fallen Angel dominated this one.

      Week 1 of this tournament started the night after Daniels big return and Red wasn't seen on TV for a long time.

      Both are good competitors but in the end Daniels won by a lot. 

    Dixie Carter Bracket

    14 of 46

      The following matchups were contested in Round 1 of the Dixie Carter Bracket.

    AJ Styles vs. Tommy Dreamer

    15 of 46

      AJ Styles: 32 votes

       

      Tommy Dreamer: 1 vote

       

      Does AJ look worried about Tommy Dreamer in the picture on this slide? No.

      Why should he be? Dreamer got one vote! There is no chance Tommy Dreamer can beat AJ Styles. 

    Samoa Joe vs. Robert Roode

    16 of 46

      Samoa Joe: 25 votes

       

      Robert Roode: 8 votes

       

      This looks like a good match on paper and can definitely be a good match in between the ropes. Two TNA originals. Samoa Joe dominated Roode in this round.

      For Roode to have won he would've had to start a singles career and build on that. I expected this match to be a lot closer than it actually was.

    Matt Morgan vs. Douglas Williams

    17 of 46

      Matt Morgan: 22 votes

       

      Douglas Williams: 11 votes

       

      At first this was a close match. Both men were either tied or down by just one vote. Sooner or later, Matt Morgan votes stormed in.

      In given time, Williams became trapped in a hole, down by 11 and unable to comeback. It was very close at the beginning.

    Bully Ray vs. Max Buck

    18 of 46

      Bully Ray: 16 votes

       

      Max Buck: 17 votes

       

      Max Buck pulled off the biggest upset in this entire tournament. I thought this match was an easy squash match for Bully Ray but, no! Max Buck won!

      At first I didn't like the fact that Max Buck was beating Bully Ray.Then it grown on me and I loved it. I wanted Max to advance and see if he can pull off another upset in Round Two.

      This maybe the closest match in the tournament but definitely the biggest upset in my eyes. What a pleasant surprise.

    Ric Flair Bracket

    19 of 46

      The following matchups were contested in Round 1 in the Ric Flair Bracket.

    Mr. Anderson vs. Jeremy Buck

    20 of 46

      Mr. Anderson: 32 votes

       

      Jeremy Buck: 1 vote

       

      This was a big blow out.

      I expected Mr. Anderson to win but after seeing Jeremy's brother Max, I thought Jeremy would've brought in more votes than just one.

      Mr. Anderson dominated Jeremy and would advance to Round Two.

    Crimson vs. Jay Lethal

    21 of 46

      Crimson: 16 votes

       

      Jay Lethal: 17 votes

       

      This was another very close match in only the first round! Crimson and Lethal are still young and have bright futures ahead of them, in TNA or not.

      I expected Crimson to win because everyone has such a deep interest in him but it was Lethal who defeated him.

    The Pope vs. Robbie E

    22 of 46

      The Pope: 32 votes

       

      Robbie E: 1 vote

       

      No Robbie E fans? Only one? I like Robbie, but wouldn't expect him to get more votes than Pope. Actually, Robbie E almost had zero votes.

      The person who picked for him voted on either the Wednesday or Thursday before Round 2 and I thought for sure Robbie would have zero votes.

      At least he isn't the only guy to get only one vote though.

    Kurt Angle vs. Murphy

    23 of 46

      Kurt Angle: 32 votes

       

      Murphy: 1 vote

       

      Murphy has the same story as Robbie E. Both almost got zero votes.

      Angle would defeat Murphy easily here and does it surprise anybody? Kurt, see you in Round 2. 

    Round 2

    24 of 46

      Round 2

       

      People still in Tournament:

      Carter Bracket: AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Matt Morgan, Max Buck

      Flair Bracket: Mr. Anderson, Jay Lethal, The Pope, Kurt Angle

       

      Previous Eliminations

       

      Hogan Bracket: Eric Young eliminated by Sting, Rob Terry eliminated by Gunner, Abyss eliminated by Hernandez, Magnus eliminated by Jeff Hardy

      Bischoff Bracket: Brian Kendrick eliminated by RVD, Jeff Jarrett eliminated by James Storm, Matt Hardy eliminated by Kazarian, Amazing Red eliminated by Daniels

    Hulk Hogan Bracket: Round 2

    25 of 46

      The following matchups were contested in Round 2 in the Hogan Bracket.

    Sting vs. Hernandez

    26 of 46

      Sting: 29 votes

       

      Hernandez: 9 votes

       

      I expected Sting to win but would've liked it if Hernandez won and advanced.

      Sting beat Hernandez badly in this one, by 20 votes. Hernandez had no chance. Sting goes onto Round Three.

    Gunner vs. Jeff Hardy

    27 of 46

      Gunner: 14 votes

       

      Jeff Hardy: 21 votes

       

      Gunner got more votes than I was expecting. People must have really wanted Jeff gone, but even more people wanted Jeff to stay.

      Seven people in this case. I didn't expect Gunner to beat Jeff but he had a good run in this tournament, especially when he hasn't been in TNA for a year yet.

    Eric Bischoff Bracket: Round 2

    28 of 46

      The following match-ups were contested in the Eric Bischoff Bracket during Round 2.

    RVD vs. Kazarian

    29 of 46

      RVD: 20 votes

       

      Kazarian: 15 votes

       

      I was cheering for Kazarian the whole time. He never once had the upper hand against Van Dam.

      RVD was always ahead of Kazarian by a few votes. Nice and close finish. RVD would advance.

    James Storm vs. Daniels

    30 of 46

      James Storm: 4 votes

       

      Daniels: 31 votes

       

      Daniels owned Storm this round. By a big 27 votes. I knew Daniels would win but not by that big of a margin!

      Daniels would advance to fight RVD to see who wins the Bischoff Bracket.

    Dixie Carter Bracket

    31 of 46

      The following matchups were contested in Round 2 of the Dixie Carter Bracket.

    AJ Styles vs. Matt Morgan

    32 of 46

      AJ Styles: 29 votes

       

      Matt Morgan: 6 votes

       

      "Mr. TNA," "The Phenomenal One," AJ Styles beat "The Blueprint," "The DNA of TNA," Matt Morgan by 23 votes.

      I expected this match to be close, maybe won by five votes or less but AJ blew Morgan away! AJ proves he is truly phenomenal as he defeated Matt Morgan by 23 votes.

    Samoa Joe vs. Max Buck

    33 of 46

      Samoa Joe: 31 votes

       

      Max Buck: 4 votes

       

      Max can get an upset over Bully Ray but not Samoa Joe. 

    Ric Flair Bracket

    34 of 46

      The following match-ups were contested in Round 2 of the Ric Flair Bracket.

    The Pope vs. Mr. Anderson

    35 of 46

      The Pope: 9 votes

       

      Mr. Anderson: 26 votes

       

      I thought this match would be a lot closer. How Pope only received nine votes, I don't know.

      I imagined this match being back and forth and eventually won by a handful of votes. That's not the case because Anderson won by 17 votes.

    Jay Lethal vs. Kurt Angle

    36 of 46

      Jay Lethal: 4 votes

       

      Kurt Angle: 31 votes

       

      I had no doubt that Kurt Angle would sweep Lethal. Angle is a veteran and Lethal is still young.

      Kurt Angle would meet Mr. Anderson to determine the winner of the Flair Bracket next round.

    Round 3

    37 of 46

      Round 3

       

      Hogan Bracket: Sting vs. Jeff Hardy

      Round 2: The Pope via Mr. Anderson

      Round 2: Jay Lethal via Kurt Angle

    Hulk Hogan Bracket Finals: Sting vs. Jeff Hardy

    38 of 46

      Sting: 20 votes

       

      Jeff Hardy: 14 votes

       

      I honestly thought Jeff Hardy was going to win the Hulk Hogan Bracket.

      He lost by six to "The Icon" Sting. Sting would win the Hogan Bracket and challenge the winner of the Carter Bracket.

    Eric Bischoff Bracket Finals: RVD vs. Daniels

    39 of 46

      RVD: 17 votes

       

      Daniels: 18 votes

       

      Both men are evenly matched in the ring. Both wrestle similar X Division style. One vote is all they needed to declare a winner.

      This matchup was very close and either man could've won. It was Daniels who won and would challenge the winner of the Flair Bracket.

    Dixie Carter Bracket Finals: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe

    40 of 46

      AJ Styles: 32 votes

       

      Samoa Joe: 2 votes

       

      Amazing. Two TNA originals and AJ completely dominates Joe in the votes.

      AJ won by 30 votes. That's crazy. AJ would win the Carter Bracket and challenge Sting for a spot in the Finals.

    Ric Flair Bracket Finals: Mr. Anderson vs. Kurt Angle

    41 of 46

      Mr. Anderson: 10 votes

       

      Kurt Angle: 24 votes

       

      Another match that I thought would be close but was not. Angle beat Anderson, won the Flair Bracket and would challenge Daniels for a spot in the Finals.

      Sting: 2 votes

       

      AJ Styles: 20 votes

       

      Sting came all this way and lost to "Mr. TNA" AJ Styles.

      I predicted Styles in the Finals and I was right. AJ Styles will fight to win the TNA Madness: 32-Card Stud Tournament.
