The day has finally arrived--WWWF: Star Wars Edition begins this week! I've got an interesting roster cooked up for you guys (which I revealed last month exclusively to my email subscribers), and I am super excited to see who you pick!
I hosted a different WWWF last year/beginning of this year, but if you've never played before, here's how it works:
1) Each week, leading up to the finals on December 26th (I'll give y'all Christmas off, ha!), I'll be posting a new matchup between Star Wars characters, complete with fight scenes.
2) You'll vote in a poll to decide which character would win in a fight (or, for those of you with favorite characters, who you would like to win in a fight). Typically, you'll be able to vote in each poll until Wednesday at 11:59 P.M., but for the finals, you'll be able to vote until Thursday at that time.
3) The following week, I'll reveal the winner of the previous week's matchup. If you want to see your favorite character crowned WWWF Champion, you have to vote!
Now that you're up to speed, let's get started with Quarterfinals Week #1 of WWWF: Star Wars Edition!
Official Roster and Week #1 Vote
Above is the official bracket for the competition, and we begin Week #1 with a most curious matchup--Rey vs. Ezra Bridger from the Disney XD TV series Star Wars Rebels.
Introduced in 2015's The Force Awakens and returning for the upcoming film The Last Jedi, Rey has captured the attention of fans due to her mysterious past and uncanny connection to the Force. While the origin of her powers may remain enigmatic, we saw glimpses of Rey's strength in The Force Awakens, most notably in her encounter with Kylo Ren. Armed with a lightsaber passed down through generations of powerful Jedi, Rey is a force to be reckoned with. Take a look:
Though he predates Rey's introduction by a little over a year, Ezra Bridger is arguably a littler known character than she. That said, he's no lightweight himself. Ezra's seen his share of action fighting for a fledgling yet growing Rebellion, and he's even dabbled in the dark side; but all these experiences have only served to make him stronger. Even without his bright green lightsaber, Ezra can hold his own. Check it out:
It would be remiss of me not to include a little lightsaber action, though (skip to 1:23):
All right, now you've seen the competitors, and it's time to ask the question: Who would win in a fight? Rey?
...or Ezra Bridger? Vote below!
