2012 DP All-Star Clash - 1st Round (Star World Bracket)


It's the final leg of the first round of DP Clash weirdness. This time, we delve into the Star World bracket. With second-round match-ups taking shape, let's finalize it all by completing the first round of the Clash.


#1 Justin Beiber vs. #8 Steven Seagal
#1 Justin Beiber vs. #8 Steven Seagal

Never say never! Ok, I'm done being goofy. On a (slightly) serious note, there is no way that Steven Seagal advances in this clash, right? After all, there is a reason he is an eight-seed. However, let's look at it this way, what can stop Steven Seagal? Have you ever seen one of his terrible movies? This duel would obviously have the powers that defend and fight for Just Beiber take up his cause - teenage girls. You can send them all (seriously, all of them!) after Steven Seagal with weapons, heavy artillery, and even weapons of mass destruction, and Seagal will somehow, someway, escape with a victory. And yes, he'll even deliver a cheesy line after he destroyed them all. Never, say never? Seagal just proved it in this round. 

Result: Seagal with the upset.


#4 Chris Brown vs. #5 Sidney Crosby

Chris Brown is a bad, bad man. Of course if he fights woman. Despite being a dirtbag, Brown is super talented and is well-known all over the world. On the other hand, Sidney Crosby is a super skilled athlete, and probably the best player in hockey. However, no one watches hockey. Unless of course you are Canadian. Sadly, these two guys can walk into Times Square and most people would think it's Chris Brown and some other guy. That pretty much sums up this one. 

Result: Chris Brown runnin' it. 

#6 Pitbull vs. #3 Lady Gaga
 #3 Lady Gaga vs. #6 Pitbull

Anyone remember when Lady Gaga was somewhat normal? Yeah, it has been that long. Almost doesn't seem like she was ever normal. Yet, despite her awkward dresses, weird ways, and controversial political views, Gaga has a terrific voice and is very creative. However, I have no interest - ever - in meeting or hanging out with Gaga. Honestly, if you had the chance, how many of you really would want to? 

As for Mr. Worldwide, his work is enjoyable, and overall he just seems like a guy that is completely opposite of Gaga - fun.

Gaga is just hit or miss with too many. 

Result: Pitbull

#7 Kevin Arnold vs. #2 Super Mario
 #2 Super Mario vs. #7 Kevin Arnold

Kevin Arnold is the man. I grew up watching and thinking along with the decisions and life's intricacies that Kevin faced. Ahhh, those wonder years. In fact, I kind of still do with this blog! Kevin was intelligent, curious, and had an awesome friend in Paul, and of course, the very authentic character of Winnie Cooper to chase after. That Winnie Cooper always was confusing...

Yet, we're talking about the greatest fictional character in video game history. The man outshines his other plumber brother. Has an awesome pet in Yoshii, a cool friend in Toad, a hot "significant other" in princess, plays every sport (especially tennis), and of course drive a seriously cool Go-Kart that can evade traffic by shooting banana peels. 

Heck, the man alone is a multimillion dollar franchise! 

If that wasn't enough, how many of us wouldn't like to eat a mushroom and grow, have several lives, or even speed through our work day after receiving a star? 

Sorry Kev, but I think even you would want to be Super Mario. And let's be honest, the man is in the Star World bracket. That's just tough to beat.

Result: *dah-dah da-dah da da dun!* Super Mario

Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 Review: "...Just Solid - So Freakin' Solid."

It probably won't come as a shock to anyone who follows this blog that I will say the following statement: Impact Wrestling may just be the most consistently entertaining and fresh - very important adjective here! - wrestling product that I've engaged with over the past two years. It's just always there, as solid as it can be. No real highs, or lows that push me away as a fan - just good, consistent, thorough, solid pro wrestling enjoyment.  Now, make no mistake about it, over the past summer, I found myself a whopping thirteen weeks behind this solid product in favor of the still new (and intriguing) AEW product and my on-again-off-again hope in the WWE due to nostalgia. However, trusty-work-from-home days have allowed me to binge watch (and work, of course) and it certainly opened my eyes to a new experience when it came to wrestling. Removal from the episodic style habit, and the feel of episodes bridging together seamlessly.  Also, remove from the internet culture of we

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/7/17

3 Up 1. Captured Girls Return - The evil that is the gross, disgusting, group that is Boko Haram released 82 of the 300-plus they kidnapped over a year ago. Many are still missing, but giving these girls a chance at life away from the clutches of this group deserves the plus this week.  2. Dear White People - I got around to checking out this show on Netflix and boy was I happy to do so. DWP is VERY thought provoking, truthful, honest, authentic, and yes, very funny. And it's a great show, visually. Can't wait for season two.  3. LeBron James - Because most of us are just waiting for the eventual Cavs/Warriors NBA Finals, we're losing sight of really how awesome LeBron James is. The dude really is the difference maker in this league. It's quite astonishing to think about. The Cavs are rolling, and he's just toying with opponents.  3 Down 1. Trumpcare - Look, I'm not going into this full on. But it just seems to me that this administration is

Bound For Glory 2020 Review - If A Tree Falls And No One Hears It...

Television in 2020 has been weird. Check that. It's super weird.  In a year marred by pandemics, death, catastrophe, and overwhelming heartbreak, the viewing habits of everything in entertainment has changed - wrestling included. Ratings are down. No one respects appointment television - and heck, there is even less need for the idea of watching content through said television. Where am I going with this on a Wrestling pay-per-view review? Come on, get to the point, bro!  I haven't been shy in communicating my severe disappointment in professional wrestling (namely WWE) during this pandemic ( Pro Wrestling in COVID Times ). When many entertainment options were off the table, most notably that of sports, pro wrestling had an extreme opportunity to give fans something different, and even capture casual fans.  Unfortunately, they didn't. And a large part of my growing disinterest with pro wrestling has been because of the WWE, and to a much lesser extent, AEW.

What is it about?  A group of college baseball players navigate their way through college, taking advantage of their personal freedoms and learning to navigate their sudden unsupervised life in the 1980's.  Who is in it?
