Smackdown is a popular comedy event held annually on the CONvergence Mainstage that pits a list of favorite “contestants” from a given category against each other in head-to-head match-ups. A panel of “experts” votes on the outcomes of these match-ups and, through twisted feats of ridiculous logic, produces a champion.


16 will enter, but only one will reign supreme! Check the CONvergence Schedule for this year’s Smackdown!
