    OK, let's get the debate started with an argument from a complete newbie: I'm going with Vincent Kennedy McMahon for the upset.

    My mentality is that if a matchup appears in the tournament that has happened in real life, I'm going with the winner of that match. Vince has beaten Taker twice, once on Raw via DQ in 1999 and in the Buried Alive match that ended the American Badass gimmick. I see this match ending in a DQ win for Vince. Taker gets in most of the offense, but when he goes to apply the Hell's Gate, he does it too close to the ropes and Vince grabs on. Taker doesn't break the hold before the five count, giving Vince the victory.

    Undertaker has had a history of not listening and/or attacking the ref in matches. He did it just two weeks ago at Mania. Sure, it was HBK, but it's not the first time it's happened. Combine that with McMahon's tendency to create a blind rage within his opponents because of his tyranny, and I think Undertaker knocks himself out of the tournament in the first round.

    If this was just some random match on a Monday Night RAW then you MAY have something but this is a much bigger stage then that. This is a kayfabe tournament to determine who the best wrestler of all time is. Undertaker isn't stupid and in a big match environment like this there is no way he would do anything to get himself disqualified.

    Achievement and Accolades: Vince McMahon has a pretty impressive set of accomplishments in pro wrestling, as well as outside of it. A former Royal Rumble winner, ECW and WWF Champion, and a slew of PWI and Observer awards. He even has his own star on the Hollywood and Madison Square Garden walks of fame! But let's face it, as far as accolades go the Undertaker is the man. 7 times a World Champion, 7 times a tag team champion, a Royal Rumble victory, and of course a perfect 20-0 streak at WrestleMania.

    Winner: The Undertaker

    Contribution to the Industry: The Undertaker might be one of the greatest, and most iconic wrestlers in the history of professional wrestling, but to be frank professional wrestling may have never made it to the spotlight without Vince McMahon. Sure there are a lot of oldschool fans that prefer the regional approach to the industry rather than the glitz and glamour of "sports entertainment", but that doesn't change the fact that Vince created what we know today as pro wrestling. WrestleMania, Hulkamania, the Undertaker's streak...what else might not exist had it not been for the creative genius of wrestling's most wealthy man? The Undertaker is great - hell he's a phenom - no doubt about it, but this isn't a real contest in my mind...

    Winner: Vince McMahon

    Kayfabe: Technically speaking, Vince McMahon has a positive record over the Undertaker. I know, take a minute to digest that information, and breath. McMahon beat the Undertaker in a Buried Alive match thanks to the help of Kane as well as helping many of the Undertaker's opponents to iconic victories over the Deadman. These two men actually have a very long and entertaining history, putting on some of the best feuds that include the Ministry, Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar, Kane and more. Still, no matter how many times the boss has used Taker to get him or another heel over, I have to believe that Undertaker would win in a final battle to end it all. Vince is a smart businessman, and he really only went over Taker if it was good for business (at least I would hope so...).

    Winner: The Undertaker

    In-Ring Ability: Undertaker.

    This could end up being a very close race when all the polls and votes are calculated, but to be this is kind of a no-brainer. Vince McMahon revolutionized the industry, and has continued to do so until this very day. But as the rules of this tournament state, this MATCH is to determine the greatest of two COMPETITORS. The Undertaker is one of the all-time greatest pro wrestlers, and while Vince McMahon has stepped into the ring for some legendary battles, there's just no way to justify a non-wrestler going into the second round of this tournament. And if Vince can beat the Undertaker, where does it end? He may as well just win the whole damn thing at that point...

    FINAL DECISION: THE UNDERTAKER

    I'm going to be voting The Undertaker based off the fact Vince McMahon has never been a full-time wrestler and even though we're under the understanding that he is a former WWE Champion, Royal Rumble winner and ECW Champion it's still Vince McMahon and him gaining those accolades all involved the help of one or a number of different allies at the time.

    However, I would state that basing an argument for Vinnie Mac is plausible due to the fact that as Anvil stated, The Undertaker has lost two separate times to Vince McMahon. Plus just to rebuttle Big Sexy's comment, Survivor Series 2003 was a pretty high stakes night in Kayfabe and although it took assistance from Kane, the records show that Vince McMahon defeated The Undertaker. I'll be voting for Taker, however Vince is a pretty plausible choice for debating.

    It's a shame that Vince has such a shitty win/loss record.

    I think we're all posting in here because this is, y'know, 'the easy one'. Sure, Vince's ACME package could arrive just in time and he could defeat The Undertaker with an anvil and a giant magnet. It just wouldn't happen though, would it?

    Mr. McMahon looks like he's been in a bad car accident and The Undertaker keeps on rolling.

    Rolling.

    Rolling.

    Only one problem there. Survivor Series 2003 was a Buried Alive match where Vince got his ass handed to him for the majority of the match until heavy interference from Kane led to the Vince victory. The match we have here is a standard one on one contest with no gimmick. That means no heavy interference for Vince without a dq.

    Vince McMahon should win..

    He owns the company and therefore pays the referee, if the referee has any sense and wants to keep his job then he'll let McMahon win

    That is all.

    Vince McMahon's chances at being a Royal Rumble winner and WWE Champion certainly wasn't hurt by the fact that it's his damn company, and his final say in all booking decisions, does it? Nope. Not at all.

    This really comes down to one key factor for me: I don't think there are going to be too many that would be shocked if the Undertaker won the entire thing, he has that kind of resume. Not that he will win, but that you wouldn't be surprised. If you can't say the same thing about Vince McMahon, you probably have to vote for the Undertaker, if only because it's flat out more believable.

    But Undertaker sees that the ref is being biased and chokeslams him and essentially knocking him out, then Taker puts McMahon in the Hells Gate or pins him and another ref comes out that hadn't been payed off who calls the 3 count.


    Yes McMahon is shifty but I think back to WrestleMania 24 when Undertaker beat Edge and the whole La Familia. Undertaker isn't easily out witted.

    Vince McMahon is a businessman first, and a wrestler second.

    Can you think of an instance where McMahon has been in a standard one-on-one match against a wrestler (i.e. not Divas or midgets) and won cleanly?

    Chokeslam, Tombstone, 1, 2, 3. Undertaker.

    Yeah but Vince pays ALL the referees and therefore they would all help him if they wanted a job.

    Taker goes to chokeslam a third referee but is stopped by the rest of the locker room, why? because Vince pays all of them aswell

    They beat the shit out of the Undertaker and Vince gets the pin.

    But there's also those guys who are fair like your boy Cena who would help out Undertaker and there are enough guys like that to even things out.

    I'm taking this as old school WCW, so Vince has no sway and therefore - no chance. The Dead Man takes this and takes it quick - Diesel / Bob Backlund quick.

    Yup these one is easy, can't see Taker losing here. If this was the WWE region it could be a different story as Vince has a lot of sway in that matter. As for this, Taker brings it and brings it hard. Vince does what Vince does best and that's get his ass kicked. Taker is "the guy" in big time situation and always steps up when it matters in terms of that big match feel. This whole tournament is pretty much filled with that big match feel and Taker should win here and do well throughout.

    It's funny to try to speculate anything but a Vince McMahon loss here. The Undertaker should dominate this match, but it might end up closer based on guys trying to fuck around a little bit.

    As far as executives getting in the ring, Vince McMahon has easily been the best guy. His son was nothing more then a spot monkey, Heyman was Heyman, and Bischoff was too busy pretending to be the Karate Kid. Vince could go in the ring and take an ass whooping better then almost anyone I can recall. He should get used to it, because Taker moves onto round 2.

    If this were the final round of a prestigious tournament, I'd make an argument for Vince. No bullshit.

    But, it's not. No way Taker loses this early in a tournament like this. This is the type of match where Vince wouldn't even compete (think Bret Hart/WM26). Undertaker would beat him for a solid fifteen minutes, within an inch or two of his life. In the final round of this sort of thing, Vince would find a way to be competitive (cheating, probably). First round? Nah.

    Taker wins.

    I'll base my vote on te fact that Vince has never been a full time wrestler while The Undertaker has been; for the better part of 20 years. It's fairly easy decision to make for me. Vince has always been there to make his opponents look good. Whether he was facing Steve Austin or Shawn Michaels, Vince is best at losing to his employees. That's what everyone wants to see - the asshole boss get his ass handed to him. That's what happens here; Undertaker dominates the match until he Tombstones Vince for the win.

    The only reason Vince ever wins anything is to advance a storyline for a bigger purpose. In the WWF nothing is bigger than WrestleMania and he's 0-4 at that event. Vince loses when he is supposed to. This tournament is supposed to be the biggest thing going so there's no way a guy as popular as Undertaker goes out in the first round. There really shouldn't need to be an explanation but I'll state the obvious. Taker is one of the most dominant and most beloved characters in wrestling history. Vince is a middle aged business man. Vote Taker.

    Even with Vince McMahon trying to cheat his way to victory, there's no way the Undertaker is losing this match. Vince has never been a full wrestler and while he has changed wrestling forever, the Undertaker is one of the greatest superstars of all time and will beat Vince convincingly. My vote goes to The Undertaker

    I have all faith in the Undertaker here. This is the type of match that Vince would get his ass kicked for a good 15 minutes in before going down for the tree count. Sure Vince is a smart guy and very good at getting out of bad situations and all however, When it comes down to it Vince is more often than not getting his ass kicked.

    The Undertaker. 20-0 at Wrestlemania. Former World Heavyweight Champion, the "Deadman" of WWE & all around bad-ass. Let's face it, he may be going up against a pretty strong man in the form of Vince McMahon, but there's no way Taker's losing here.

    In your standard 1v1, where Vince doesn't get the upperhand through some sort of sly, cheating manoeuvre, then Undertaker can beat him over & over again. You cannot let this slip into the hands of Vinnie Mac, please.

    Chokeslam/Tombstone, followed up by a Hell's Gate and then;

    JS votes for Undertaker

    This would be ugly. I can imagine it being as quick as some people think, but 'Taker would drag this out, and enjoy it. Vince has his share of wins, but he is smart enough to lose when he stands to profit from the outcome, so forget about him "paying off refs".

    After a half hour of whipping Vince from pillar to post, I'd bet he ends it with a Hell's Gate, leaving Vince lying on his back with blood dripping from his mouth.

    If this was a storyline, then its quite logical that Vince would find a way to come out on top. After all, he has beaten Undertaker before....

    But obviously we are picking the better wrestler here, and for that reason I do not even have to justify the decision to pick Undertaker to go for the win here.

    A true legend of the grappling world, Undertaker to win this and possibly go all the way in this tournament.

    Vince would have had some chance had this been in the WWE region. However, this is WCW's arena, the company Vince killed and everyone official is going to enjoy fucking with Vince here. Refs would count a pinfall slow, maybe the timekeeper will not ring the bell even after Vince has tapped out in the Hell's Gate. It would be a fun match if this actually happened. I know Undertaker has lost twice to Vince but this is just the type of match in which the face takes revenge against the sneaky heel, a match in which the heel is out of his element. Undertaker would maul him here.

    Winner: Undertaker.
