I don't see Rush as a clear champ. It's not like what's left of the bracket is a walkover.
edit: I would put Action/EffOrt over him in a finals.
I agree effOrt on a good day. I would say Mini on a good day. Action, meh. Someone needs to pull a Joaquin Phoenix from Gladiator and do a pre-match rib-stab to overcome Rush. I would also say Rush needs to be on his A-game but the dude is thirsty. He's rabid. His A-game is here to stay until he wins an ASL imo.
Agreed the bracket is not a walkover for him but if Mini shits the bed and effOrt falls to ZvZ I think Rush has it.
Time will tell!
Action is unstoppable in lategame TvZ. The question is whether he shoots himself in the foot by cheesing and losing before then.
After his truly awful performance against Mini the last finals he made it to, I don't particularly want to see Rush in the finals again.
