For those of you who caught the entirety of CEO 2013, you likely remember that during the Fightermania event, they had interviews with the fighters before they entered the ring. Reminiscent of pro wrestling, some of these were very entertaining, playing up the hostility for laughs. We've gathered all of them here, courtesy of CEOGaming.

First up, CEO organizer Jebailey went up against MadCatz representative Markman in DiveKick, complete with an agreement that the loser would have to shave their head, bringing their beef to maximum level.

Hit the jump to check out the other pre-match videos, featuring players like EG|Justin Wong, EG|PR Balrog, WW|Ryan Hart and LU|Alex Valle.

Here's the introduction between EG|PR Balrog and CEO|Green Ace, before they went at each other's throats in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

This one was played before the match between LU|Alex Valle and CEO|CJ Truth, taking one of the original fighting game masters against one of the youngest prodigies the community currently has, in a match labeled as "old-school versus new-school".

Crossing international borders, there was a US vs. Europe match between FNEX|K-Brad and WW|Ryan Hart in Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition v2012, to prove which region has the superior combatant representing them.

Bringing another international matchup to the stage was LLL|Momi from the Netherlands, going up against EMP|NuckleDu (the matchup was originally supposed to be against EMP|Dieminion, who unfortunately could not attend the event).

Finally, here's the introduction video for the final match of the night, which was EG|Justin Wong going up against EMP|Flocker in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
