Rules of the tournament are as follows: every competitor must beat everyone within their respective block and while doing so, manage to obtain points through a pinfall or submission.

Every win leads to the competitor receiving two points, whereas a loss equates to nothing or zero points. If a matchup within the tournament happens to end in a draw, both competitors will be awarded one point each.

Remember:  Win = 2 points  Loss = 0 points  Draw = 1 point
