    No problem man.

    Jarrod should be on this soon and we can get this wrapped up over the next couple of days or so. I am loving your guys work. I know this is a tired cliche but you're both winners to me. I am very much looking forward to judging this.

    I hope the birth goes well.

    I still like the Jared option for naming. Always play with their minds.

    Well after a long journey full of ups and down, the posting is done and it is now down to the votes. Voting will remain open for 5 days and then the new Wilfred's champion will be crowned!

    Great job Jarrod and Mikey, good luck to you both!

    Where can I put in a complaint about these debates? Mikey and Jarrod both subverted democracy with their blatant lies in claiming that the best non-Wrestlemania PPV is anything other than Backlash 2000. Is this the world we live in now, where people can just #fakenews the fuck out of everything and pretend that pop for Stone Cold never happened?

    Honestly I considered Backlash 2000 but talked myself out of it. I still think Scotty 2 Hotty had a career performance that night. Essa Rios as well.

    Ultimately I thought it had too much fluff (tag matches, Angle/Show) to be considered best ever.

    I'm losing though, so what do I know?

    You're rather distracted, though, @Jarrod1983. What is your wife's due date? Naturally, I hope all goes well blah blah blah - and I would recommend you try to get as much sleep now as you can, since you may not be getting it for a few months....

    I must say, I am glad you defeated me in the semi-finals. I could not have done nearly as well as you did. But @Simon raises a great point, and I may have to go back and re-watch that one as well.

    Backlash 2000 was stacked from top to bottom. It was the card Wrestlemania 16 should have been.

    Fully Loaded is another great one from 2000. It was a year I feel they got the balance between storylines and the in-ring productjust about right.

    Another great one with the Triple Main Event in Fully Loaded 2000. I'd toss SummerSlam 2000 in there too. All these shows I pretty watched the night of the 22nd through the day of the 23rd. Happy I did, my step kids enjoyed all of what they saw. Made the choice very difficult.

    May 11th 3pups. If she doesn't have him by the 15th she's been scheduled to be induced. I think he's coming in the next day or two. She says he's getting lower so we will see.

    Yeah. I had a good portion of my final post already done because I think she's going to go any time. She lost her mucas plug about a week ago and has been having contractions so I'm basically just waiting for her to say let's go!

    Thanks for everyone's well wishes. I'm nervous as hell but, when its time, I'm ready to walk into the hospital like Stone Cold marching into his match with Bret at WMXIII. I am amped up but trying to be calm.

    We've tried to make it go as quickly as possible, but drop-outs and waiting on replies makes things difficult and happens every year, with this being no exception. Overall though, the debates when completed this year have been quality so more happy with that

    Anyway BBF's vote is in. We'd like more than 2 forum votes so will still leave this open til Saturday. It will end either way then.

    I'm going to close this shortly actually with full results. The winner is very clear and there's no point in letting this go on longer.

    Honestly, I think we beat some of the timeframes from years previous.



    regardless, great final debate by both guys. Both had good runs, and I think this was one of the better years as far as overall arguments.



    In that way, aren't we all winners?


    The answer is no.






    Mikey Jones congrats on your win, and welcome to the fraternity. You get a smoking jacket and an autographed pick of Wilfred Brimley.

    Congratulations to @Mikey_Jones, the new Wilfred's Debate Championnneeeyyyy!!!!

    *winner music*



    That was one of if not the most dominant performances I've ever seen in this competition. Again sorry for not giving you a pre-tourney write-up!!! Very unlucky @Jarrod1983, but as comfort you had one of if not the best rookie performances I've ever seen in this competition. @BGMaverick please mail the trophy on!

    Also thank you to everyone else who took part participitating and voting also those who voted. Plus guys like @Sasori and @Torn who weren't participating but still found the time to read and vote. We need more of peoole like you. Sorry if I've missed out anyone else who voted but didn't participate but those two names stood out.

    This tournament has not been without hang-ups (particularly @JP but understandable circumstances there and hopefully he gives it another go next year) but like I said earlier, the debates that were comoleted this year were amingst the very best I've seen this year.

    Also last hut definitely not least, my partner @Mazer for helping organise this with me and coming up with topics in spite of his busy schedule, He is the cool ying to my hot-headed yang and I definitely wouldn't have managed this without him.

    Also if we were to bring this back next year to try and speed things up (as Knee has less than subtly pointed ou, also as s Mazer just said there it's been worse), depending on sufficient interest, maybe make the first round two posts each instead of three then increase it to three later on. Any other suggestions/feedback future are also welcome.

    Thanks again everyone!!!!

    Also @Nash Diesel, water under the bridge and you're back in for future competitions. Of course, if the BG debate league goes ahead, I will still destroy you.

    Also has anyone heard from @Judas Iscariot lately? He has disappeared off the face of the earth it seems since this.

    Thanks Badger. I was honored to make it this far and look forward to future competitions. I really didn't think I'd make it out of Round 1.

    Don't put yourself down, your first round debate with Kotre literally came down to 0.1% as BBF said in his vote, It was dead even up to that point. Best first round debate next to JP/Defrost which needed BG to break the tie.

    Congrats to Mikey! I was happy to do my part in the voting, but I'm afraid my participation dropped off towards the end. There were a couple debates where the topic was so open like "Is John Cena the greatest Superstar of all time?", that I just couldn't decide who made the better argument.

    Brilliant! Thanks to Badger and Mazer for running this, it's been a great experience. Well done to Jarrod as well, the final debate was toughest by far. Huge thanks to @Torn for the help throughout the debates as well.

    You're welcome. Didn't turn out the way I expected tbh with a few big names going out early but it gave Jarrod and other first-timers a chance to shine and they did very well with it. Competitions like this are a good platform for posters to show how good they can really be.

    Also thanks to BBF, mth and virm for their judging input. If this comes back next year, we may tinker with the format a bit.

    Wonder how long we can keep these threads stickied before the mods realise the tournament finished ages ago?
