Rey de Reyes Tournament Lineup/Matches Guess

With all the patience of a six year old playing hide and go seek, AAA just went “one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, teneleventwelvethirteenfourteenfifteensixteen!” on the Rey de Reyes participants.

1) Silver King
2) Alan Stone
3) Octagon
4) Super Fly
5) Black Abyss – mispelled!
6) Dark Scoria
7) Abismo Negro
8) Electroshock
9) Joe Lider
10) Dark Ozz
11) Latin Lover
12) Nicho el Millonario
13) El Elegido
14) La Parka
15) Psycho Clown
16) Super Porky

Let’s resort that out.

No Chance
– Octagon
– Dark Ozz
– Super Fly
– Black Abyss
– Dark Scoria
– Joe Lider
– El Elegido
– Psycho Clown
– Super Porky

Extremely Limited Chance
– Nicho el Millonario
– Electroshock
– Alan Stone

You can quibble with people who should be in one of those groups rather than the other, but it really doesn’t matter. They’re not winning.

Probable Winners
– Silver King
– Abismo Negro
– Latin Lover
– La Parka

It’s pretty obvious these four are a distance away from the rest of the pack here. Silver King was arguable before his turn, but now he’s married to La Parka and we’re already short on rudos anyway. In fact, since the final will likely be two rudos and two tecnicos, they’re probably bound to lose Abismo (via Black Abyss) or Latin (random Legion guys?) in the first round. Maybe Electro makes the final. Maybe someone random.

Okay, so we’ve got the tournament. What else?

– Konnan (w/Arturo Rivera) vs ? (w/Joaquin Roldan) – everyone will suppose this to be Cibernetico until they announce it or announce differently. Yet, there’s no Mesias match and no obvious one coming, so that’s probably the stronger bet at the moment
– something with X-Pac and Zorro
– something with Charly and Chessman?
– something to round out the numbers – maybe Apache/Billy related, maybe just a random match

They ran four non-tournament matches last year, and I would figure on the same this year.
