I had to work, so I caught the archive. Unfortunately, checking twitter to see if Tonight Was The Night spoiled some of the more dramatic beats for me.

I thought that the Red/Barrett was by far the best fight of the night. At any rate, Barrett put up enough of a fight that he got a good chunk of the chat behind him. It was the first time in a while that I've seen Red get booed.

Literally laughed out loud when Nappa came out with his super sayian beard. I was wondering how Bazza was going to do that, but I was honestly expecting a Goku-style hair pasted onto Nappa. The beard was so much better.

After watching both endings, I'm glad it went down the way it did. I'm glad that Vegeta had a good solid run as the champion since he was the only one in the Drac Pack pulling his weight (Dan keeps losing, Kefka's only real match so far was against Dan), so he pretty much single-handedly made them look like a real threat. With Vegeta gone (whether truly dead or just back to Badman) and Dracula down (?), things are looking bad for the heel stable.

There's a tournament going on right now to determine the new champ. Arino vs. Eggman now.

EDIT: Edited out bracket for spoiler purposes.

#304 Edited by EvoHero (20 posts) -

Yes, didn't realize that it had pasted that until now.

Flint and Groose are the best new characters VGCW has seen in a while. Flint is a solid fighter, and Groose is just... Groose. Awesome.

It was pretty hilarious to see Kazuya get destroyed by Haggar, as well.

@gelatinabomination: I didn't think Groose would win that last match, that was a great comeback!

Looks like the Twitch chat got under Baz's skin tonight, he almost quit VGCW for a minute there.

Serious drama after the tournament, one hell of an intense night.

Making her WVGCW debut, from Saint's Row... Shaundi!

#323 Posted by jeffrud (472 posts) -

I was probably too excited when the SRIII theme started playing. And of course she's the one to get killed.

#324 Posted by meaninoflife42 (591 posts) -

I don't know what happening in this match anymore.

#325 Edited by jeffrud (472 posts) -

I want to get off of Rinoa's Wild Ride.

#326 Edited by FLStyle (5461 posts) -

ooooo 18 vs. 18, Hell in a Cell, this should be good.

#327 Edited by jeffrud (472 posts) -

"The Future, from behind!" Thank you Cole, you wonderful idiot.

#328 Edited by meaninoflife42 (591 posts) -

"The Future saw that coming." Michael Cole, master of puns!

#329 Posted by FLStyle (5461 posts) -

That whole thing with the 18s was golden.

New challenger taking on Sindel! Roll!

#330 Posted by meaninoflife42 (591 posts) -

Great episode tonight. Cole and Lawler were at their pervy "best."

#331 Edited by Icicle7x3 (1235 posts) -

Hmmm, the only person left in the tourney I want to win is Terra.


#332 Posted by FLStyle (5461 posts) -

My personal favourite episode of WVGCW so far.

#333 Posted by jeffrud (472 posts) -

I'll say straight up that I didn't really care for BRYN's plot abilities out the gate, but they've gotten a lot better. He's also got lots of nice small touches, like his title cards and the threat of Lightning's presence as a trolling device. I'm now equally excited to see what both sides of the VGCW have in store. Good stuff.

I only noticed now tonight was the night, did I miss the first match? (segata-san/wei shen vs wario/waluigi as of writing)

#343 Edited by Toastburner_B (209 posts) -

The first match was Bison vs Guile, with Bison winning.

And WOW, that tag team match was insane! How long did it last?!

#344 Edited by Mirado (1101 posts) -

@optix12: Yeah, first was Bison vs Guile.

As Scorp is going to fucking brutalize Falcon, we'll finally get to see him against Red. If Red can beat him, it's one more before he should start taking on the top contenders.

And if Falcon somehow does win, Red gets off easy.

EDIT: Welp, there goes my Bison dollars!

#345 Posted by FLStyle (5461 posts) -

Nooooooo Scorpion!

Captain Falcon wins the No.1 Contender's match for Red's Casual Championship.
