The Twitter Tournament To The Title is happening on the Twelfth and Thirteenth. Confused? Don’t be, we’ll explain.
Our friend Socks Mahoney has been working on this for quite some time and we’ve decided to let him talk to the people about it (mostly due to the Brad Ward vs. Joey Image dream match).
Take it away, Socks!

Ok but what is TTTTTT REALLY?
TTTTTT is, ultimately, an attempt at improving the quality of our matches through learning finer methods of simulation wrestling and video editing. While we know most people watch for stuff like the promos or the entrances or tongue-in-cheek comedy, we recognized pretty quickly that the match quality wasn’t as entertaining as it could have been.
So in that respect, TTTTTT is fifteen recorded matches of progress. It’s the best in ring work we’ve done so far, and you can see that progress unfold gradually as the show goes on. If you’re looking for some silly character moments, there might be a few for you, but this show is all about the wrestling. The first night is done entirely in WWE13 (and was recorded well into 2013), while the second night is all WWE2K14.
Still confused as to what this is all about? See below for the main event of the last show, SocialSlam, featuring Louie Benson vs. Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts:
