The TransCanada Tournament was a major event held in Mississauga, Ontario. It was heavily anticipated by smashers all across the country because it offered a chance to finally realize the possibility of a nationally-recognized East Coast vs. West Coast crew battle.
Crew battles were conducted in a double elimination bracket of 7 crews. Though there was no specific regional crew for the East Coast, the West only had five representatives due to obvious travel restraints, and so it can be said that the East did win the grudge match.
The singles bracket was a 32-man double elimination tree based on the results of eight pools of approximately seven players.
Those players wishing to compete in a low-tier bracket did so at will; there were no pools to determine seeding.
