All of the dust has settled in Atlanta, Georgia as the host Minion Legends team came away with a championship from the Elite 8 Duals. Minion Legends defeated the favorite, Team Kong, 30-21 in a spectacular dual meet Sunday night. The championship dual went back-and-forth and saw emotions running high throughout the contest. Each squad lost team points. Eleven of the 15 bouts took place between ranked wrestlers. Not only did Minion Legends notch the upset, but four lower-ranked wrestlers came out on top. 

Here are all of the wrestlers that were able to knock off higher-ranked opponents over the weekend.
