Actually, Punk probably would job to a powerbomb, depending on who delivers it. Thesz's original variant dropped the recipient on his head and neck, certainly enough to keep Punk down. Thesz skill with the move surpasses Cena's meaning Punk'll have a harder time getitng out and Thesz is more likely to secure a submission with it. I'll just leave this here. [YOUTUBE]uRLB3CONnq0[/YOUTUBE] Angle doesn't bridge after his Germans. Doing that makes it harder to kick out because you're stunned and have no time to recover. Different type of wrestling. Thesz was a hooker. The aim of that type of wrestling is to hurt the opponent. Angle is a freestyle wrestler. The aim of that discipline is to pin the opponent. Thesz did beat numerous olympic level wrestlers though. What, the white belt (ya know, the one that comes with the gi) he has and the complete lack of evidence for actual Martial arts training? Yeah no he didn't. And yet he drew more fans than Punk ever will. Speed isn't everything. And that matters to whether or not Thesz shoudl go over an overrated jumped up midcarder like CM Punk because? Yeah, the fact that you're citing the piece of shit federation that is ROH indicates that you're a moron. Fair enough. A guy who spent a decade holding world titles is likely to lose to a jumped up midcarder? Yes, well over a decade would certainly qualify as "a good period of time" And this is an argument for his cardio against Lou Thesz's because? Wow, a bunch of titles held in irrelevent federations copied and pasted from Wikipedia. The fact that you're even citing these feds in comparason to the territories is fucking laughable. The indies and the territories differ in two main regards. The (well run) territories drew money, whereas no indies do on a large scale (ROH can't pay the likes of Lance storm a fair wage). The second is that the territories were relevant. The indies aren't even close to that. No, you should count Punk out because he's not as good as Thesz, achieved less than Thesz, isn't as notable as Thesz, wasn't as innovative as Thesz and didn't draw as much as Thesz. No matter how you want to compare the two Punk comes out as the bitch. Vote Punk, unless you support pathetic arguments that rely more on word forts than actual merit.
