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.

I just remember hearing something about the tournament having 13 teams total.

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.

Where did they say it was 13 teams? As it currently stands there are 9 teams signed which would make more sense.
Yes, but a few surprised entrants which are not revealed until tv starts would make sense as well.

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.

Dark Order

Young Bucks
Lucha Bros
Santana/Ortiz (PnP)
Private Party
Best Friends
Boy and his Dino

Just my guess. JB and Luchasaurus are crushing that Twitter poll as expected and SCU are doing trios things.

For some reason they had a match and the winner gets a first round by, someone needs to explain to them that putting those teams in a match where the winner advances IS THE FIRST ROUND why do they keep trying to do these by matches that make no sense?

No, not really...because see, if it was a first round match. If you lost you're out. Here you lose, you're still in you just don't get that first round bye. A lot of people want to say this but don't think clearly about why it's not right. So no, it's not a first round match.

They won't put PnP in the tournament. They will continue to build an angle between PnP and the Bucks.

It will probably be:
Dark Order- 2nd round
Young Bucks
Private Party
SCU
Jurassic Express
Best Friends
Lucha Brothers

Private party are gonna lose in round 1, against the Bucks, leaving them open for a non-tournament rivalry against Angelico and Evans.

And you don't think they can have a rivalry while taking part in the tournament?

The Bucks are gonna win their round 1 match against Private Party, and Private Party are gonna go on to have a rivalry outside of the tournament against Angelico and Evans, but PnP and Bucks will both go on to at least the Semi-Finals. I think the Semi-Finals will be Bucks vs PnP and Lucha Brothers vs Boy and His Dinosaur. With PnP vs Lucha Brothers being the final match.
