Also surprised that Kintaro Kanemura (a jobber best known for his deathmatches) beat Scott Hall. And then Barry Buchanan (jobber in both the WWE and Japan) beat Kanemura. Then he gave Gracie a decent run for his money in the final match.
So what's next?
Mirko Cro Cop
So many Japanese guys I've never heard of. Almost certainly of the job variety. But Don Frye and Mirko Cro Cop stand out as the likely victors. I put my money on Cro Cop.
They're both MMA guys. It's a shame that the MMA guys are so dominant in this game. Even the jobber MMA guys are at least good.
It just doesn't make a whole lot of sense. The MMA guys should be good at MMA matches but not so much wrestling. As it stands, they're between good and excellent in the wrestling matches and totally dominant in MMA matches.
