Thanks to everyone! Fifth's card was awesome, and had I not been up here, he probably would have gotten my Hunico-love vote.
Now that I finally have an unambiguous win on Pun's (accidentally wrote La Pareja Atomica as Los Guerreros Del Infierno in a semi-final in 2010, though that probably swayed no voters, and teamed with Eric in 2011), I officially announce my tentative retirement into being Doug and running fun gimmick drafts every year.
Other than the guys that didn't submit cards, the overall votes are closer than I expected....and then there is Creepy. 0-4 with only 19 votes, did he just get hell of tough draws, or were his cards that bad, I can't seem to remember them being that.
Shinya “Ecosystem” Hashimoto comes into the locker room after ENVY. After a dual pin off a backslide between Edge and Seth Rollins in the final match, the championship has been held up! Ecosystem is here to make a ruling.
Shinya: As I understand, the vacant title has caused much consternation and grumbling here. For me, it has only brought a peace. Tomorrow night is our final card as a company, and this serves as an excuse to highlight all our best, not only a select few.
To crown our new, and final, champion, we will be holding a six-round tournament. Three singles matches, and a final Triple Threat. The first three men have already been determined: the two men in the final World Championship Match, Edge and Seth Rollins, and the Number One Contender, Rick Rude.
Rude: So I get nothing for my title but a lesser-order contendership?
Shinya: You may pick your match order.
Rude: First. Give this body some time to breathe.
Shinya: As you wish. Now, the final three men have been decided by the votes of the locker room. They are Jushin Liger…
All clap, though it seemed expected.
Razor seems the most surprised, but the heels cheer him.
All eyes turn to Low Ki, who nods to acknowledge.
Hayabusa, even with mask, seems surprised. The group is buzzing, but it appears that many of the boys were impressed with him throughout the series. Low Ki gives him a handshake, though he still seems a little stunned. Hashimoto goes to Ki, off-mic.
Shinya: Ki. I know it has not been popular being my representative. You will receive your due. You and Skipper have Harlem Heat once more. No other competitors. No disqualifications. Tables, Ladders, and Chairs.
Skipper looks enthused, and Low Ki gets back into it.
Shinya: (stepping back) Now…to those who have said our women would never be allowed to compete in a hardcore environment…don’t they know I’m from Japan? I have chosen five names to challenge our champion Gail in our first—and only—Women’s Elimination Chamber match. They are: Phoenix. Love. Neidhart. Toyota. Wilde.
Murmuring among the women. The Tag Champions, Night and Terrell, surmise their opponents will be LayCool.
Shinya: There will be much more to be announced…but I have one more matter of justice. Seeing as how our current champion, Human Tornado, has borrowed all too much support from Al Sharpton and his friends in BLK OUT…his friends will be BARRED from the building for our final card, and he will be defending his championship in a 4-on-4 Final Survivor Match.
Tornado yells “What the fuck is that?”
Shinya: Simple. Survivor Series rules to start—but the surviving team members immediately begin a one-fall match for the championship. So choose your team well, Tornado. That’s all for now.
Ecosystem leaves the podium and goes back to Edge.
Shinya: Never had a chance at a win before.
Edge: Oh yes, you have.
Shinya: I was talking about you. Edge. No one has ever won a draft with you at the helm of his or her company. Not OO, not Pun’s. If you don’t prove them wrong this time…well. We’ll see.
The way I envisioned it, the tables match went first. The ladder match is then second, and the winner is the guy who climbs the ladder and retrieves the chair hanging above the ring. If he won two straight falls, he doesn't have to use it. But if the third fall is needed, that's where that chair comes into play.
The Hart Legacy (Jim Neidhart and David Hart Smith) retained the RWF World Tag-Team championship over Badd Company (Paul Diamond and Pat Tanaka); Smith pinned Tanaka. After the match, the Dynamic Duo attacked the Legacy as they returned up the ramp, demanding a title shot; they brawled all the way backstage.
Nikita Koloff defeated Kane in a wild, vicious Falls Count Anywhere match.
Kazuchika Okada defeated Mike Mondo by pinfall in a surprisingly competitive match; definitely Mondo's best showing, but not enough.
The Dynamic Duo (Gino Hernandez and Chris Adams) defeated “Superstar” Billy Graham and Scott Steiner by pinfall; Hernandez pinned Steiner. Unity was a problem for Graham and Steiner. After the match, the Hart Legacy jumped the Duo in the ring, and they brawled again.
Manny Fernandez and Chris Harris went to a double-countout; Fernandez retained the RWF North American Heavyweight championship in an old-school bloody brawl.
Dean Malenko retained the RWF World Television championship in a Texas Tornado tag-team match with Barry Windham, defeating Tyson Kidd and Brian Pillman. Malenko pinned Pillman after the Dynamic Duo emerged once more to take out Kidd. After the match, four sets of four fingers went up in the air.
Randy Savage defeated Bam Bam Bigelow to regain the RWF World Heavyweight championship in a Three Stages of TLC (Tables, Ladders, and Chairs) match. Bigelow put Savage through a table to win the first fall, but he could not climb the ladder fast enough to keep his title. After the Macho Man grabbed the championship belt from the ladder to tie things up, chairs became legal and lethal weapons in their hands. In the end, Savage persevered, and captured the RWF World title for a second time.[/b]

I'll add some results when I'm bored sometime.....
considering some of the other rather week matchups I have, i'm curious how that particular one ruined the card for you. Is it because you don't buy either of them getting a main event push, or is it just a personal dislike for one or the other?
