Ricochet & Rich Swann
Brian Cage & Michael Elgin
The Young Bucks
The Super Smash Bros.
I'm really digging the field here so far. Four excellent established teams and a couple interesting mash-ups...although I would've liked to have seen Chuck Taylor & Johnny Gargano brought in over Elgin/Cage. Then again, "Unbreakable Cage" or whatever they'll be called is a pretty impressive looking duo on paper. If there are only going to be eight teams in the tourney, I think Strong & Edwards should pretty much be a given at this point. The last team however, is tough to predict. As much as it pains me to say this (especially since they were my pick to win the 2012 DDT4), I don't think the RockNES Monsters should be included this time. I love those guys and hope they stick around PWG, but their stock is just so low right now that it might be better to wait on them for the time being.
With Adam Cole entering himself and Kyle in the tournament you would think Kevin Steen would follow suit and find a partner to enter the fray with as well. The first three choices of potential partners are both obvious and interesting. Akira Tozawa would be the most awesome choice, especially if it could be kept under wraps. Seeing Tozawa and Mark Briscoe screaming back and forth at each other again would make me very happy! Second choice is Super Dragon. The insane potential of Steen/Dragon was never fully realized due to SD's injury. And Adam Cole would probably soil himself if faced with having to deal with a pissed off Steen AND Super Dragon. 3rd of course is El Generico. I suppose it could be a bit awkward trying to explain the two reuniting with nothing more than a few Youtube videos. But maybe they could pull it off...or even just do an angle on the night of the show where Steen enters the tournament himself and Generico comes out to help him much like Steen did against the Young Bucks. It could definitely work.
They could also pair up a guy like Callihan or Younger with Steen too I suppose. Or maybe they'll go in a totally different direction. It's fun to speculate, but I can't wait to get the official word. This show is going to be awesome!
