I mean, I guess it is. I didn't really plan to do this!

I just began stupidly posting things like "Schwarzenegger or Stallone?" on Twitter, and occasionally making little "vs" screens for them that I think are just neato torpedo:
Isn't that neat? It's like a little cartoony graphic thingy! That's good stuff.
But because there was no plan, I just sort of started teaming people up at random.
This means that some matchups are great, while others are complete shit.

So let's make it a little better, shall we?

Instead of random match-ups, I want to transform this into a full March Madness-style bracket of badassery!
Let's hold a tournament of ass-kickers to determine who is truly all outta bubblegum.
And let's have you, the movie-going public, decide the biggest badass of cinema history!
Voting is easy: just head to our Twitter (@RealCinemania) and every day we'll post 1 or 2 matchups.

The only thing is, in actual "bracketology" or whatever they call it, there's a thing called "seeding".
"Seeding" is basically just ranking the participants, with a 1-seed considered the best and a 16-seed considered the worst. The 1-seed plays the 16-seed, the 2-seed plays the 15-seed, the 3 plays the 14, and so on. This ensures that the best teams get the easiest path to the finals, ultimately building the maximum amount of drama as you get deeper in the tournament. It's a great system.

Unfortunately, because I didn't plan on doing this at all... the first matchup was Arnold Schwarzenegger against Sylvester Stallone, a couple of sure-fire "1-seeds". Next year, I'll do actual seeding.
Is the text too small to read?
Yeah, I kinda figured it would be. Especially on mobile devices.
