The tournament saw other developments which may have a ripple effect on the first season of OBD Wrestling.
- Bane attacked Link backstage and threw him off the production truck.
- Jesus tried to preach to Dark Schneider, who challenged him to a match instead.
- Goku and Vegeta bantered backstage, with Vegeta telling Goku to meet him in the final of the tournament, which he did, with bad results for Vegeta!
- Thanos and Shao Khan brawled throughout the entire arena for over an hour, ending with the latter slamming the former through the ringside barricade!
- Iolaus greeted Hercules after his loss and invited him to sign up together for the upcoming tag team championship ladder match!
The launch was a big success, with the premier on YouTube being the most entertaining event in the OBD in years, enough to qualify the tournament as a major OBD event. The Goku vs. Pennywise, Vegeta vs. Dark Schneider, and Goku vs. Vegeta matches were all widely praised. Blade said that the Goku/Vegeta main event was: "Quite a good final fight, both Goku and Vegeta can win this. It's really a close fight."
Likewise, "Jesus getting no-diffed by Thanos" was considered a memorable moment by Masterblack06, one of the OBD mods.
The extended fighting between Thanos and Shao Kahn was also a big hit on the premier chat box.
