Entrance music tournament

So if you listen to the podcast with Dave, Ralph, Andrew and myself, you've likely heard of my quest to take up pro wrestling. And what helps get a pro wrestler over with an audience? Talent. I don't have much of that at the moment. Mic skills. You've heard me on the podcast, so this is either a plus or minus depending on your tastes. Physique. Well, I'm a pale doughy Irishman, so there's work to be done. And finally, entrance music. Now THAT is something I can do.

Problem is, I had so many ideas for possible entrance music that I couldn't decide on my own. I enlisted Ralph, Dave and Andrew to help me narrow the field down from 64 to 16. Once that happens, Dave will be gracious enough to let the CSC audience pick a winner.

I'm posting the full bracket now at the request of "Dynamite" Dan Kelly, who wanted to see all the possible match-ups and offer opinions from the get go. So share your take on any of these songs and what you think would be best.
