Official Rankings before Event
This sunday is a momentous occasion. The first ever Tekken Takedown will occur and history will be made. The event, titled Sunday Slaughter: The Master vs The Heel takes place this sunday, 12th of September. On the undercard is the exciting matchup of The Magician vs The Natural in the battle for 3rd place and a shot at 2nd place later in the night. And in the main event, The Heel will challenge The Master for the Tekken championship.
Dean has been showing some great raw ability lately, beating both Lee and Eden in a non-title match earlier this week. If he can show this type of spirit against The Magician, we may just see our first rankings development. On the other side of the pond, Luke fought The Drifter to a draw tonight in a fantastic match, a classic back and forth battle that could have benefited from a larger audience much like we will see at the inaugural Tekken Takedown. As we all know, The Magician can always pull a rabbit out of his hat in the most unlikely of moments, but The Natural is severely on his game at the moment, so Sunday's match-up is a pure gamble if you ask this punter.
The main event of the show is the battle of the big men, The Master vs The Heel. As said before, Eden lost to Dean less than a week ago. Whether this is a crystal ball into what he brings into Sunday Slaughter is still to be seen, but it definitely makes The Master's performance an intriguing prospect. On the other hand, The Heel is perhaps stronger than he's ever been, and is coming into this title match with more steam than The Master. You see, it doesn't matter whenever Russell loses a round, because he almost always leaves the night with his hands in the air and his heelish attitude all up in your grill. The Heel is coming into this fight with purpose and, dare I say, a slight advantage. These two combatants always bring their all into a fight and have had many classic battles over the last few years, but nothing has come close to this. When all is said and done, one of these warriors is walking out the champion, not just of the match, but of Tekken. Will The Master crumble and lose two straight rounds, or will The Heel not find it in himself to compete at the level he is renowned for on the day when it matters most? Will we have a classic three-rounder worthy of the auspicious occasion? All will be answered at Sunday Slaughter.
