    Lightbulb ERB as it could have been

    Not sure if this goes in this section, please move if it fits better elsewhere.

    Here's the scenario. One night in your sleep you are taken to a very similar, alternate reality. As in our reality, 69 (nearly 70) ERBs have been created. The only difference is, none of the characters used are the same as in our reality. However, the idea for each battle is almost identical to our reality - it's just the exact characters picked by Pete and Lloyd are never the same. You spend the night watching each of the battles, perplexed and transfixed.

    The next day, you immediately write down all the battles in the alternate season 1. You loved all of them.

    Below is the idea for each battle, each of which was the same as in our reality.

    What were the exact match-ups for each one?

    Battle 1: British musician vs American TV personality
    Battle 2: Dead dictator vs Fictional villain
    Battle 3: US president vs American tough guy
    Battle 4: Female politician vs Living female musician
    Battle 5: Dictator vs 2x sports personality (in the same sport)
    Battle 6: Horrible musician vs Dead musician
    Battle 7: Two experts in the same field of science/learning, from two different countries
    Battle 8: Huge historical personality vs whoever the hell
    Battle 9: Two people with the same name, one real (can be a deity), one fictional
    Battle 10: Fat American vs Fat American supported by Thin American
    Battle 11: Two elderly fictional characters originally from books
    Battle 12: Writer or poet vs writer supported by 3 of his/her characters
    Battle 13: Two people known by the same honorific (e.g. Mrs, Dr, Sir, Professor...)
    Battle 14: Real captain vs fictional captain
    Battle 15: Youtuber vs Youtuber

    Note - unless otherwise specified, characters can be any gender.

    As an example, I might say Battle 1 was Sting vs Stephen Colbert (British musician vs American TV personality).
