“King of Cable” Bracket Released

By Sean Orleans

This Saturday marks the third annual King of Cable Tournament, the first to be held at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club in Soulard.

Eight men will compete in one-on-one matches under single elimination rules to determine the fittest, best wrestler in the St. Louis area.  The winner will receive a guaranteed title shot against the MMWA Champion at any time of the challenger’s choosing.  The previous two winners of the tournament–Brandon Espinosa and Dave Osborne–went on to win the title when “cashing in” their opportunity, so the stakes are incredibly high.

Let’s look at the bracket, shall we?

No seeds here; every man’s name went into a hat and was drawn at random.  Any of these men would make a fine King of Cable.  The Television Champion A.J. Williams will meet Battle Royal Champion Lynn Mephisto in the opening round, Jr. Heavyweight Champion Andrew Wilder faces Ace Hawkins, Da’Marius Jones squares off against the 2012 King of Cable ‘Big’ Dave Osborne, and two longtime rivals butt heads yet again as Brian James battles Jimmy D.

Also on the card: MMWA Champion Brandon Espinosa will defend his title against Gary Jackson and the Lumberjacks will be in tag team action.
