    Giant Baba won lots of titles because he was really good. Michaels won a lot because he threw his toys out of the pram all the time and kept being given chances to get it back. I enjoy Michaels' matches on the whole, but I think the reality is he wasn't a draw and against a legitimate huge name like Baba he'd come up short in the conversation. With that in mind, I have to vote with Baba.

    It's the same thing I said in Shawn's first match against Hack.

    Baba was awesome at winning.

    Shawn was awesome at losing.

    Vote Baba. Better draw, better respected by his peers, and I'll go controversial and say he was an overall better wrestler.

    Baba is awesome full stop. If you ever watch Yojimbo (The movie that the man with no name is based upon) He is in that. What movie has Shawn Michaels been in? Baba won Titles because he was awesome and one of the top 3 draws in Japan.

    Vote Correctly. Vote Baba

    This match takes place in the middle of nowhere USA where it snows all the time and Shawn Micahels has no huge fanbase. Neutral ground. Giant Baba is one of the most accomplished wrestlers in Japan and has defeated the following...

    Harley Race
    Gene Kiniski
    Jack Brisco
    Dick The Bruiser
    Bobo Brazil
    Demolition in tag team action
    The Funks in tag team action
    Among several others...

    He was a 3 time NWA champion, held in great regard by the NWA committee and served as vice president of the organization. Shawn Michaels took his ball and went home after years of not putting people over or drawing any money.

    Giant Baba is the correct choice here. He should win. He was a bigger star, was a better champion, and left a more important legacy. Michaels received allot of hype from WWE simply because of his marketability late career.

    Don't let the "WWE Greatest Ever" DVD fool you. Baba was better and should win.
