The Scrap announced its new initiative: The Ultimate Writer, which kicked off last month.
TUW is a competition for The Scrap’s Content Writers and features 14 of the best MMA and pro wrestling writers around the world in a competition of article views. The first round of the inaugural season began May 1st and the winners will be determined monthly when highest article views go head-to-head to determine The Ultimate Writer.
The second-round matchups feature pivotal head-to-head wars that could the underdogs rise to the occasion again. Below is your guide to everything you need to know before the second round of TUW ends.
Kevin Mahoney vs Jordan Ellis is a matchup to keep a close eye on. Both men produce a similar amount of content and usually get a similar amount of views, so this will most likely be a close win for either writer when it is all said and done. Last round, Kevin Mahoney had one of the best performances of the competition. Can he pull it off again? Or will Jordan Ellis be victorious, becoming the third underdog to drop jaws this season?
MATCHUP OF THE NIGHT
Connor Rogowsky vs Matt Puppich is going to insane. Rags is a coach for this season, so high expectations follow the New Hampshire native. Puppich is coming off the biggest upset in TUW history, eliminating the #2 ranked writer, Hiram Alvarado. Rags could be the last writer standing for his team after this week, so it’s important he makes a statement.
UNDERDOG TO WATCH
Jordan Ellis has everything it takes to win this competition, although round one wasn’t impressive. Representing UK, Ellis has found his avenue and following in order to turn things around just in time this season. He’s on the verge of taking out one of the toughest writers in the competition, Kevin Mahoney. AHHHH! Keep an eye on Ellis from here on out…
