Time for the quarterfinals! I mean, even if I hadn’t been spoiled on the finals already weeks ago, it would still be 100% obvious what they’re going to be, but TOURNAMENTS ARE AWESOME and how they get there is half the fun.

After I finished the initial four episodes, the next four dropped on the Network, and apparently “snarking on the women” equals pageviews. So let’s carry on.

Holy cow, I actually got a COMMERCIAL at the beginning of the show. Haven’t seen any for months, in fact. Aside from the dozen or so that litter every PPV, AMIRITE?

So we continue on with this wacky, unique, “single elimination tournament” (what a concept!), although the matches are taken from all over the place in the bracket, so, like why even have a bracket?  Why not just throw matches out willy-nilly like WCW did in 1999 and then come up with a bracket later?  IT’S ANARCHY.  ANARCHY I SAY.
