How exactly will the tag tournament work?

Ok, so last time I checked, they said there would be 13 teams in the tournament (correct me if I am mistaken), but I could be mistaken. But this doesn't make sense. Even Dark Order getting their round 1 bye, there are only 3 weeks worth of tv for the matches.

Even if they put all 6 round 1 matches on the 10/9 episode, they will still have 7 teams for round 2, going into the 10/16 episode. And there is no way to work round 2 with only two-on-two matches. There would still be one team which doesn't have a match. And if they have four of the teams in a 8-man match with both of the winning teams advancing, they would still have one team left without a match.

The only way I see it working with that many teams is for round 2 to be run by a lottery system, where teams are randomly selected to face each other, with the team not selected for a match receving a bye. This would leave 4 teams for the semi-finals on 10/23.

It's going to be a dink ass 7 team field. Three first round matches + Dark Order bye.

Where did they say it was 13 teams? As it currently stands there are 9 teams signed which would make more sense.

Maybe do a quick google search before your source is "I just remember hearing something".

Re: How exactly will the tag tournament work?

Unless they get creative, probably a 7 team field. 3 1st round matches, with Dark Order getting a buy to the 2nd round.

Something they could do is an 11 team field. Have 5 1st round matches, that means 5 teams get into the 2nd round, plus the Dark Order with a bye that makes 6. The 2nd round is then comprised of 2 triple threat tags, with the winners of those 2 teams getting into the Finals.

That's just one idea. We'll see what they announce, which I hope is soon. We're less than 3 weeks away from their TV debut and while I don't know if the tournament will start on the 1st episode, I know there will be some action on the 2nd episode between the Bucks and Private Party. I hope we get some kind of bracket soon.

Yes, but a few surprised entrants which are not revealed until tv starts would make sense as well.

Re: How exactly will the tag tournament work?

Very surprised to see them leaving tag teams out of their tag tournament. Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus are incredibly popular and Angelico and Evans just had a good heel turn against Private Party. I feel like leaving either off would be a bad choice unless they have A&JE have a longer program with PP when they (most likely) lose to the Bucks.

I agree with this, but at the same time it looks more likely it will be a 7 team tournament consisting of: Bucks, Private Party, Lucha Bros, SCU, Boy and His Dinosaur, LAX, Dark Order, and Best Friends.

The main reason I came to that conclusion was because of the fact they sent out a tweet to exclude one of either Angelico & Jack Evans/Boy and His Dinosaur.
