The upsets are already pouring in at EVO, and this one is huge! Nietono has been completely eliminated from the tournament from winners and losers. Nietono is one of the best players from Japan, and placed Top 8 at Apex 2015. He lost early in winners to Tearbear from Socal. Tearbear went on to Winners Finals to fight Cacogen from Washington, a hidden boss that many locals predicted would go far. The unknown Sheik main also signed up with only his name Braedon Phillips, so there’s a chance that he wasn’t seeded normally. Cacogen defeated Tearbear, which meant that Tearbear would be fighting Nietono once more in Losers Finals, where he defeated him again 2-0 with Captain Falcon and Sheik. Reports are saying that Nietono was using Mii Brawler, I’m not sure if he also used Sheik or not.
