This WWE All Stars comp isn't the toughest competition I've ever had to judge - that honor goes to the de Blob 2 comp, which had lie a thousand bloody entries - but it's definitely been the comp with the greatest level of depth and quality. You guys outdid my expectations and then some...
I'll admit, there were a couple of genuine standouts, but after those two it was extremely tough to choose the runners up. As a result of the last minute spurt of amazing entries, it became really tough to get down to the final six. I'd just like to give a big thanks to everyone who had the balls to enter, because I know it was a big ask to put yourself out there.
Congrats everyone. You've had the entire office in stitches for the last week.
Anyway the winners. First the runners up.
Chuloopa I may get stick for this, since you win a fair few comps, but you continually make me piss myself laughing. Complete natural on camera and some awesome lines, great use of props - but the performance was what really sold it. I'm having nightmares about your nipples.
Fenil Of all the early entries yours was the strongest. I thought I had a winner in the first day. The 'human jar of mayonnaise' line was the best in the competition. Your entrance was absolutely perfect and I think, of all the entries, you really understood what made a great promo.
Xegek In wrestling terminology, you had the best gimmick. I'd actually really love to see a wrestler with this gimmick in the WWE. The promos would be incredible. Great idea, great execution, great entry.
Blunt Yours was the most seamless I think - concept, outfit, it all came together brilliantly. Bulk Billing elbow drop - amazing. But you had tonnes of hilarious Dr related puns in there. Well done.
Congrats all four of you guys get a copy of WWE All Stars - email me here and let me know which format you'd prefer, I promise to get it right this time!
And now for the two first prizes...
G-Man Wow. Amazing execution. I'll admit, at first I thought the Mario idea was a little easy, but then you just continually ramped it up. First off, the room looked incredible. Secondly, the accent was perfect, the promo itself was solid gold and then you had frickin' fireballs! The minute I saw this video I knew it deserved to win.
FatShady MBA Disclaimer: the Ric Flair promo that FatShady based his video on is one of my favourites of all time. And FatShady - you absolutely nailed the look and the attitude. I loved the interviews with the fans, I loved the mullets, and I especially loved the news bar along the bottom. Amazing job. Well deserved.
You guys both win either a 360 or a PS3. Again email me here and we'll sort out the prizes.
Congrats to everyone. And you should totally take the time to check out all the entries below. You guys make me love my job.
