fuck grudge matches. winner never gets glory anyway. there is always the talk of “well, it wasnt in a tournament”. or some other excuse for whoever loses. i get less than more credit for not only beating wong, but everyone else last year at evo in the 5 on 5. not that i ask for credit. i just dont like it when people take it away. and while im posting (i dont post much), let me explain my thoughts on a few things. and before i start, i want no one to agree, or disagree with me. these are my thoughts: beating wong isnt the hardest part of winning evo. getting to him is the challenge. beating him is the adventure. not taking anything from him. and second: about the grudge matches. combo vs mixup is easily mixup. sanford vs row would be interesting to watch. i think it can go either way. no comment about the third. and phil vs shady? 2 years ago it was easily shady, but now. iono. i heard phil got alot better, and i dont doubt that he has. so i cant say. if there was money behind these grudge matches, and im talking about real money. then that would make it interesting. otherwise, i would not be interested in watching any 2 players battle it out over whatever grudge they may have. shit, id barely be motivated to watch if there was money on the line. this has been a random tandrum by the mighty.
Combo vs. Mix should be pretty interesting. You have a WC style Magneto player from the east coast who straight blasts his way through and an EC style Magneto player from the WC who isn’t as flashy but uses his head.
Row vs. Sanford went to Row last time it happened in what was my opinion the most entertaining match of last year. Both have gotten better. I’d like to see this again
Viscant vs. Ricky is… … something. I’ll say Viscant since he has the height advantage.
mixup- non money grudge match? I’m there.
Edit: tell you what. Let’s make this match more interesting. Since I saw what you could do with Magneto/Doom last year, let’s make this a Magneto/Strider/Doom mirror match.
