    that's why sabo said:"that was fast"
    my opinion.
    If Rebecca knocked everyone out, why was she also unconscious? Did she knock herself out along with her enemies?

    Damask was also shown unconscious at the end of the chapter. He is underneath Rebecca, to the left of the Mummy. He also would have had to have knocked himself out in the process of defeating the other contestants.

    Well if we consider Rebecca utilising Dials, especially Impact and Reject Dials, then it makes sense that she as well as the other contestants are knocked out.

    Rebecca is arguably unmatched in terms of speed in this Block D battle (except Luffy, she hasn't been seen to be hit by ANYONE yet). It is entirely possible that she could have positioned herself in a way to absorb the power of the Block D contestants into her Dial(s) while she was dodging their attacks and unleashed it back onto them at a later point - possibly chapter 733. Combined with her speed and agility, Rebecca is capable of utilising Dials to take out the Block D opponents 'one after another'. The Dial(s) could be hidden under her gloves or in her sword or elsewhere, it doesn't have to be noticeable just like it wasn't for Wiper under his bandages on his right hand. Impact and Reject Dials absorbing the kinetic energy of others and using it against them fits Rebecca's fighting still quite nicely.

    Discarding the shield before she entered the Block D arena could be a signal of her intention to utilise the Dial(s) in the Block D battle. If Rebecca was utilising a Reject Dial during the Block D battle as well, it becomes reasonable to assume that even someone like Cavendish was able to be taken out. If we presume that Rebecca was accumulating kinetic energy within her shield from all her prior battles, it becomes even more reasonable to assume that the big names in Block D were able to be taken out.

    Wiper has already shown that a Reject Dial can be used multiple times, so it is not too unreasonable that Rebecca could survive multiple uses of a Reject Dial, especially with her father and grandfather being such strong fighters and Rebecca herself being used to the world of fighting (a Gladiator).

    Sure Rebecca may have preferred not to hurt others directly or harm them, but when that preference is placed alongside the desire to protect Soldier-san, it becomes apparent which she would prefer to protect. Rebecca is more like the "Wiper" of this arc than the "Vivi" of this arc - while Rebecca may not necessarily have the power to match the other main players, she has shown herself to have resolve and will (enduring all the hatred she suffered for most of her life and remaining unbroken through all of that).

    After multiple uses of the Impact/Reject Dial(s), Rebecca could have dropped to the ground out of sheer exhaustion, injury and fatigued, but given how she has shown herself to be quite resolved and mentally resilient, she may have willed herself to get back to her feet - just like how Wiper did during the Skypeia Arc.

    Sabo may have heard something similar to what happened in the Block D battle through a story of Skypeia Dials and their combative abilities he heard/read. Given that not many "Blue Sea dwellers" know about Skypeia let alone Dials, it makes sense why everyone, including Bartolomeo was puzzled at what just happened. It could very well be Bellamy who informs Sabo and Bartolomeo about what exactly happened since he has been to Skypeia before, if he didn't leave the Colosseum yet that is. Or Luffy and Bellamy's timing in leaving the Colosseum could be very intentionally if Oda-sensei does intent to have Rebecca progress in the tournament and compete with the other big names - the unknown of Dials coupled with her speed can make her a force to be reckoned with.

    As for why Rebecca is in possession of an Impact or Reject Dial, that could all be explained through the Corrida Colosseum. We know that these Colosseum battles/competitions run regularly and that Rebecca has been "imprisoned" as Gladiator for quite some time in the Colosseum. Couple that with the fact that the "heart" of the underworld isn't all that far from the Colosseum, then you have a potential prize of a Colosseum battle/competition being an Impact/Reject Dial or any other Dial/dial-infused-weapon. Since not many people realise what Dials are it would be reasonable to expect not may challengers for the prize unlike the Mera Mera no Mi which people know about through Ace. With Rebecca referred to as "The Undefeated Woman", if there were a Dial or Dials up for grabs in the Colosseum battles and she participated, she would have won them.

    Dials + Rebecca's ability to use "Mantra" (Kenbunshoku Haki) could make her a deadly fighter like those seen in Skypeia.

    That is absolutely a very nice theory! Dials would perfectly fit to her fighting style! She wouldn't "hurt" anybody else, the others are hurting them selves in a kind of way cause it's absobring their attacks/powers and use it against them. If it's really true that she has dials combined with her speed, that would really be BOSSLIKE.
    Gladiator + dials + speed + Kenbunshoku Haki = Deadly combo.

    I also think that Rebecca will win block D, because it makes more sense that she stays in the middle of the audience tryin to get the mera mera no mi rather than her being underground. And imagine Burgess vs. Barto vs. Sabo vs. Rebecca. Everybody would think: OK Rebecca has no chance. And it's kind of a unfair battle too, but it could be very interesting cause yeah she's the undefeated gladiator, and that DOES mean something.
    22.01.2014: Vivi is going to participate the Reverie this year with King Cobra. And she'll finally join Luffy.

    As I pointed out in the chapter discussion, every named character was down if we can trust Gats words and someone looking unconscious standing up wouldn't be something new to One Piece either, more like a trait of a shounen series.

    But, it's not like Luffy instapwned Arlong. That fight was shown to be pretty much even, with Luffy coming out on top slightly. Luffy seriously beat Arlong only when he went all pissed off serious mode.

    Even if we assumed Rebecca to be on the level of others (which would be pretty amazing considering it's people who mean something in NW), it's hard to believe that she could suddenly beat them and only then collapse from exhaustion.
    REVOLUTION! FREEDOM!

    All of the big names were knocked out. Not all of them qualified as big names. Just because a character was named, that does not make them a big name. Semantics, I know, but Oda might have qualified that only big names were knocked out for a reason. I feel like the winner will be someone who was not pictured on the last two pages of the chapter, whether that is Meadows or not. The winner could have been unnamed "fodder". I still find it very suspicious that Meadows was shown in the initial D-Block lineup, was wearing what looked like a disguise (the animal skin), semi-obscuring his features, but has not made a single appearance since. Every other character from that page either has since had a speaking part, or were at least among the unconscious contestants. Unlike Meadows, Logan and Acilia both made brief appearances after the line up was shown, even though they were not shown among the unconscious fighters.
