    Surely this is the biggest contest of the entire Wrestlezolympics. The best that Canada has to offer against the best of the US. Added to the mix is the sheer amount of person heat and rivalries between the two teams and such a match may turn into a series of one-on-one confrontation rather than a Survivor Series tag match.

    It is incredibly close to call but I think that the US just has the star power to outlast its northern neighbours.

    I do see the superior submission skills of Benoit, Jericho and Hart eating into the American line up perhaps with both Angle and HBK submitting but the combination of Stunners and Atomic Leg Drops will get rid of both Chrises before Austin and Hart battle each other to a double countout, leaving Hogan to prevail over Edge with the whole unlikely kickout/Hulk-up/finger point/punch x 3/big boot/leg drop combination

    Sole Survivor: Hulk Hogan

    This is the most intriguing matchup of all. You have three legitmate superstars who could produce tapouts at anytime in Hart, Jericho, and Benoit. Add Edge to the mix, who always finds a way to win. The problem is you probably have the four most dominant(Hogan and Austin) and versatile(Angle and Michaels) that ever existed on the other side. Angle taps to Benoit, who is met by sweet chin music from Micahels, which eliminates one from each. Edge attemopts to spear Austin off the apron, but is met by a duck and more sweet chin music, eliminating Edge. Hart gets the sharpshooter on Michaels at that point, and Michaels taps. Jericho tags in and he and Austin go at it, with Austin reversing the Walls or the Liontamer into the stunner, eliminating him. Hart with the quick pin on Austin, leaving it down to him and Hogan. Hartb locks Hogan in the Sharpshooter, but Hogan hulks up, does some finger pointing, some big fists, and the leg drop for the 1-2-3. Hogan sole survivor.

    Canada just doesn't have the star power to hang with the US here.

    Stone COld eliminates Benoit first, rolling out of the way of a diving headbutt. Both men stagger to their feet, and Austin kicks Benoit in the sstomach and reaches for the Stunner. Benoit shoves him away, and charges for a big clothesline. Austin ducks it, kicks him again, and hits the Stunner.

    Jericho charges in, and beat on Austin. Austin makes the hot tag to Shawn Michaels. Michael comes in and works on Jericho. he goes to hit SCM on Jericho, but Jericho ducks under it, and hits a Codebreaker on Michaels to eliminate HBK.

    Angle charges in, but gets caught by jericho. Eventually, Jericho goes for the Walls of Jericho, but Angle reverses it into an ankle lock, and Jericho taps out and is gone.

    In comes the vaunted Hitman, and he starts working over Angle. It's a technical battle, and they're really moving out there. Bret goes to lock on the Sharpshooter, but ANgle kicks him off. Unfortunately, he kicks Hart right into Canada's corner, and Edge tags in. As Angle struggles to his feet, Edge hits the Spear, and pins Angle.

    And then the corwd erupts, as the Immortal Hulk Hogan enters the ring to face off with his former Tag Team Championship partner. Hogan starts overpowering Edge, but gets too close to the Canadian corner, and Hart grabs him, and drops his throat across the ropes. Edge and HArt start working fluidly together, working Hogan over. Hogan finally escapes their clutches and makes the hot tag to Steve Austin. Austin comes in an cleans house. He hits a Stunner on Hart, but Edge breaks up the pin attempt. As Austin starts yelling at Edge, Hart sneaks up behind Austin and hits his patented Russian legsweep. He tags Edge in, and edge picks Austin off the ground, but suddenly the Texas Rattlesnake locks up a small package cradle, and Edge is gone!

    Hart is alone against the two Americans, but he's working over Austin right now. he eventually locks p the Sharpshooter, shades of their Wrestlemania 13 bout, Austin won't give up, but it looks bleak. Somehow, Austin gets to the ropes. As HArt goes to pick him up, Austin hits Hart with a low blow, and makes a diving tag to Hogan. Hogan is working over Bret Hart, than, out of nowhere, Team Canada's Jericho returns thru the stands, and takes out Austin behind the refs back. As the ref checks on him, Jericho sneaks in the other side and take Hogan out with a huge chair shot. Hart locks a seemingly unconscious Hogan in the Sharpshooter, but Hogan springs to life as the crowd is going wild. In the end, it's Big Boot and Leg Drop, and that's all she wrote.

    Survivors: Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin

    Wow, this is truly the monster matchup of monster matchups here. Canada is so technically sound (though I can't look past Angle) while USA is bringing some of the biggest names ever here.

    I could work through the match to make sense of it all, but this is the basics:

    Angle over Benoit after an amazing show of amateur wrestling from both men. While this would take its toll on Angle, he can probably still go for a bit.

    Hart over Michaels after a clinic to even the match at one fall a piece. Hart is really worn though.

    Jericho eats the Stunner from Austin and it out next. Quick tag back to Angle and Edge comes in for Canada.

    Edge eliminates Angle with a spear after a brief exchange of moves. Angle was already worn down anyway. This leaves Edge/Hart vs Austin/Hogan.

    And this is where it really ends for me. There is no possible way I could put a worn down Hart and Edge, even if Edge is fresh, over a semi-worn Austin and a fresh Hulk Hogan.

    The USA wins here, with Austin and Hogan left.

    Poll is up, please remember to vote for only ONE TEAM. You may vote for one or all members of a team to survive, but don't vote for members from each team, because that would be silly.

    I'm going to allow someone to win my vote, and I say that 100% honestly. Right now, its going to be somewhat easy as well.. because if I base things solely off talent, and overall accomplishments in history.. Team USA wins with Hogan as a sole survivor, or Hogan and Austin barely hanging on in the end.

    However, I can easily make an argument for each member of Team Canada to match up perfectly against Team USA, and ending in a 4 against 1 set-up versus Hogan. Now, this is something I will state directly and instantly. The first moron who says (honestly) Hogan can beat all four members, alone, will earn a one way ticket to my vote going to Canada - instantly. So I ask and implore whoever reads this.. don't be ignorant and an idiot, make it realistic.

    I am open entirely to listening to both sides, and am even leaning toward Team USA because of what I stated above. However, I'm also asking 1 important factor.

    Irish stated in another thread that matches these Wrestlers have are split apart by 48 hours. So when does this match take place? After the matches that've already happened, or after the matches that are happening in a side-by-side event to this match?

    Good question. Assume this takes place 1-2 days after the other events semi-finals.

    What team Canada lacks in precived starpower they make up for in the form of a solid unified front. Hart, Benoit and Jerico are all Dungeon graduates and Edge was trained by Hart. Hart, Edge and Jerico are all multiple tag champions. On the other side are four of the biggest stars with four of the biggest egos. Only Micheals has a record of multiple tag belts going for him. I think the Canadian team will form a solid unit relaying on time tested tag wrestling stratigies of quick tags , staying fresh and double teams (often involving submission moves) to overcome the individualistic tendancys on team America. In the end I think it will be Hart and Benoit remaining for team Canada.

    Yeah right, I guess the fact that Austin is a 1 time WCW tag champion and 4 time WWE tag champion (on of which was with HBK, his teammate in this match), or the fact that Angle has been both WWE & TNA tag titles somehow they don't count as "multiple tag champs":rolleyes:

    Ok , so I stand corrected on that, but I'm mainly trying to point out that I think team Canada will present a more unified team and approach to the match than the Americans.
    No disrespect to the American team intended, I just think the Canooks will work better together as a team then Americans.

    I agree with this, on a slight edge. (no pun intended)

    Team Canada WILL work better as a Team, especially since the majority of them have been Team-mates in their history and only Shawn Michaels and Steve Austin had an (albeit, shaky) alliance.

    However, here's the thing...

    This contest is in Survivor Series elimination format. Which means, short of Team Canada finding an unlikely way of eliminating Team USA, without losing any members themselves - its not a huge factor that one team has more chemistry and team-work ability than the other.

    Once members from Team Canada start becoming eliminated, they won't have the same strong Team chemistry. If anything, the likes of Jericho & Edge could become slightly erratic and could make mistakes, which cost them.

    Now, I'm not trying to bury Team Canada so I don't want some naive lame-brain coming along saying "Yep, thats it they lost." Because I'm not saying it will happen - I'm saying it could happen.

    When I think of Survivor Series matches I think of match-ups.

    Bret Hart has 'owned' Steve Austin
    Edge has more victories over Kurt Angle, than vise versa
    Benoit matches up roughly even with Shawn Michaels, yet has more victories over him as well.

    Which leaves Hogan and Hart, and thats where Hogan wins. Then if historical events hold true - goes on to unrealistically runs rough-shot through the rest of Team Canada for an unlikely, unrealistic yet very possible victory.

    I see Team USA coming out on top here, with Hulk Hogan being the sole survivor.

    First off, I feel that it would be unfair to say things like, "Team Canada would probably work better together." This is a Survivor Series match... since when does a team have to actually be a team to win a match here?? In the past, these matches have always been about the total individual strengths of its members and their ability to.. well.. survive. Granted, there are rare occasions where things such as interference would get a guy eliminated. But most eliminations during the SS matchups are from one man's single, finishing attack onto another.

    As difficult of a decision as it would be to choose a winner in this matchup, you need to view it from a different perspective to see which way it would end. Instead of focusing on the weaknesses of these strong participants, we should be looking at their "survival factor." Mainly, the superstars with the best in-ring records and abilities to withstand punishment are the ones that last. That being said, I doubt that many of you could look at a guy like Hulk Hogan and ever believe that he would be eliminated from this match. In his prime (where he should be viewed in any of these WZO matches) he was rarely defeated. And when he WAS defeated, it was by a superhuman wrestler such as the Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant, Yokozuna, the Undertaker... I'm sorry, but none of the members of Team Canada have that kind of arsenal and individual strength to take down someone like Hulk Hogan in his prime.

    So, like I said at the beginning, members of Team Canada won't be able to win this match unless they are able to take down each individual member of Team USA, one finisher at a time. We have to look at Team USA's members and see how susceptible they are to Canada's finishing maneuvers, and vice versa.

    But let's save some time and but right to the chase... can any single member of Team Canada utilize one of their finishers to take down someone like Hulk Hogan?

    Chris Jericho (Codebreaker/Wall of Jericho) - Hogan could Hulk-up after the Codebreaker... which is more like a glorified Stunner, anyway... and could power out of the Walls of Jericho.

    Bret Hart (Sharpshooter) - Sorry, but Hogan spent a better portion of the late 80's and early 90's showing Bret that he was better than him in every way. Bret was never on a main-event level until Hogan left... and that had nothing to do with "drawing power".

    Chris Benoit (Crossface) - As rabid as he was, the wolverine is just too puny and would be swatted away by a primed Hulk Hogan.

    Edge (Spear/Edge-ecution/Edge-ucator) - Even though he has the largest array of finishers out of the Canadians, none of them are tough enough to keep Hogan down.

    Hogan's demise is the key to Team Canada's victory. If they can't take Hogan down, they obviously cannot win. I just can't see any members of Team Canada being strong enough to do this. Their only chance would be to isolate Hogan and gang up on him, but that's a bit far fetched... that is, unless you can devise a way to convince everyone that the other members of Team Canada can clean-sweep Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, and HBK... and this is highly doubtful.

    Canada is the better team, but there is no one on that team that can stop Hulk Hogan in his prime. The other members of Team USA will put up a fight, and maybe even eliminate a Canadian or 2, but it will come down to Hogan vs. 2, 3, or 4 Canadians. USA vs. Canada. And we all know that Hogan would not lose in a situation like that. Hogan will be the Sole Survivor, standing in the ring waving the US flag after it is all over.

    Thus far I'm still leaning toward Team USA, but the biggest argument being presented for them is: "No one is powerful enough, or big enough, to stop Hulk Hogan in his prime."

    Thats not an argument, thats a cheap and quite honestly "cheating" way out. Hulk Hogan was defeated "in his prime", and yes as D-Man pointed out it was mainly by cheating, or by guys much larger, or bigger in name than anyone on Team Canada. However, everyone who has pushed Team America in this is forgetting one slight thing.

    Hulk Hogan does not need to be pinned, to be eliminated.

    In other words, you don't have to be the more powerful team, to be the winning team. Team Canada is filled with guys that are more skilled through mindgames, and wit than they are with power and braun. They won't be foolish and stupid enough to think they can go toe-to-toe with a Hulk Hogan who uses the "no-sell" tactic. But a 10 count can be equal to that of any type of no selling ability Hogan could ever give anyone on Team Canada.

    They don't have to hold him down for 3 seconds, to eliminate him. Hogan has been known to lose track of the count and get counted out in Survivor Series matches in the past. That is the key here. Someone on Team Canada will logically play the bait, Hogan will take it because thats what he does, and there you have it. Hogan is eliminated. No power struggle, no energy lost on trying to drain the man. A simple 10 count and he's out.

    Now, I'm not convinced Canada can win even with this logic, but I would vote for them in a heartbeat if someone dares tell me what I just said is stupid and couldn't possibly happen - because plain and simply, it has happened in Hogan's prime, before.

    Now - again - I'm leaning toward Team USA, but need more than "Hogan is unbeatable" to sway me fully. Go... give me more and you win my vote.

    I think this is actually a really good argument. But here's the deal, like I said earlier, Team USA could get struck by a bolt of lightning, too.

    Now why is that statement so condescending and out of line? Because the odds of it are completely far-fetched. But, we're not dealing with a real match here. This match would never happen in real life, but we can all dream. And in dreaming about who you feel should win, you play the odds. The odds of Team USA getting struck by lightning are a little bit in Team USA's favor, right?

    The same goes for your theory about Hogan getting DQ'ed or counted out.

    I said it earlier, no wrestler is undefeated. From time to time, they all lose. But some wrestlers are just larger than life and have much better odds of getting the job done. Hulk Hogan is one of those guys. In his prime, if I were a betting man, I would have bet the farm on him in ANY matchup. Why? Because I expected him to win, due to his overwhelming win record in big matches, including the Survivor Series.

    Naturally, there's always a chance that Hogan would **** up like he did in Survivor Series 1987, but once again, he was also being held outside the ring by 400lb+ One Man Gang and King Kong Bundy while the ref was distracted. First of all, I can't see how any members of Team Canada would have the strength to hold someone like a primed Hogan outside the ring for the ten count. Secondly, Hogan made this mistake one time and then went on to survive with Randy Savage the following year and become the sole survivors for every year afterwards. My point is that he's obviously learned from his mistakes and odds are that he would come out on top.

    Play the odds, people... vote for Hulk Hogan of Team USA.

    Thank you, D-Man. At least you didn't say the idea of him being Counted out was stupid. :lmao: But basically all your argument boiled down to was odds are in Hogan's favor that it wouldn't likely happen.

    Unfortunately, its hard to know where we are in the odd's match-up. 99% of people would've figured Cena's odds of retaining against Sheamus were 100%, and 99% of people were wrong. 99% of people would've never believed a guy like Billy Kidman would go down in record books as holding a PINFALL VICTORY over Hulk Hogan, and 99% of people were wrong.

    The point is, while odds are heavily against Hogan being counted out - its just crazy enough, just unlikely enough, that its not so odd (see what I did there) to think it could happen. So, what I need to know is.. let's for purpose sake say Hulk Hogan was eliminated via Count out, or DQ, or just overall in general.

    I want arguments that show me why Team USA is more than one guy. I'm asking anyone to show me how Team USA can win without Hulk Hogan being their sole Survivor, or even a remote option, in this thing. (assuming the unlikely odds happen, and he does get counted out)

    I Belive USA should and will take this one, not just because of Hogan but Because of Austin.


    Steve is willing to do damned near anything to especially if there is something major on the line and while The Micheals/Benoit/Jericho/Angle area basically cancels it's self out leaving us with Edge/Hart and Austin/Hogan. And there is no way Edge can deal with Austin or Hogan in their Primes. And just leave Hart vs. The Two Biggest Icons of all of Wrestling.


    Austin & Hogan are The Survivors.

    Realistically, I don't deal with bull**** factors. No lightning bolts, no hit and runs, no anti-Hogan smark in the stands with an SMG.

    Here is how I see it:

    Team Canada is a very well versed and well rounded team. They each have very diverse skill sets that vary by the individual. They definitely have what it takes to win, and should not be overlooked just because of Hogan. However, USA should win here.

    Michaels could trade off with any guy on Canada, with the exception of probably Benoit. He has beaten Hart in his prime, beaten Jericho at Wrestlemania, and beaten Edge in 2005. Granted, he has also lost to each of these guys, including Benoit, but this shows that Shawn would put up one hell of a fight before he goes down. I say trade-off, as he would either beat someone, then get eliminated due to fatigue, or the other way around.

    Any problem Shawn would have with Benoit is easily solved by Kurt Angle. Angle is just as much a worker as Benoit and the two could tear any house down. However, when it comes down to it, Angle beats Benoit, as shown by both Wrestlemania 17 and the Royal Rumble in 2003. Angle trades with Benoit. That could be two down for each team.

    Austin is perhaps just as much a threat as Hogan is here. He is a whoop ass machine, and can dish out more damage than anyone else in this match. Many will point to the Wrestlemania 13 matchup where Austin lost to Bret, however, Austin never tapped out to the sharpshooter. Ken Shamrock called for the bell when Austin passed out. This should be a non-factor here, as there will be someone in Austin's corner to break up the sharpshooter should it be applied. That match was also a war between the two, with Bret taking a hefty amount of damage himself before locking in the submission. Austin could easily trade with or simply beat anyone on team Canada.

    Now we get to Hogan. Assuming three guys from each team are gone, who on Canada goes over Hogan in a one on one match? Not Bret. Not Benoit. Not Jericho. The only guy I'd give a shot is Edge actually. While many would call me crazy for this, I'd have to contradict myself slightly by calling Edge the "Lightning Bolt" of Team Canada. Simply put, he is a bull**** artist, pulling wins from his ass in the cheapest of fashions. Realistically though, he goes down to Hogan. So, I guess I agree with the "play the odds" strategy, as 99/100 times USA would win this match. It is all on the voter to decide if lightning strikes.

    In my mind, I see it coming down to 2 vs 2, Bret/Edge vs Austin/Hogan. Austin/Hogan would eliminate Bret and then lightning would strike and Edge would somehow beat Austin. However, lightning doesn't strike twice, and there is no way Hogan goes down as well. USA wins.

    Hey guys. First post, heard about this place from my brother. Not really a follower of the current product, but a big fan of the older stuff, and I watched avidly all the way up until 2001.

    Anyways, I'm assuming this tournament is being done "kayfabe" style, so I have to say I'm eminently confused by the voting here. How is Bret Hart getting so many votes? Bret Hart participated in 6 elimiation-style Survivor Series matches, and he was eliminated in 5 of them (re: he survived in 1 out of 6 attempts at this style of match). His only win was over a last-minute replacement Shawn Michaels (for Jerry Lawler) and three masked "Knights".

    Meanwhile, this match seems, sadly, tailor-made for the Hulkster. I'm no Hogan fan, bt it's hard to deny that, kayfabe, he should win the match. He survived in 3 of his 4 forays into elimination style tag team matches. The one time he lost was when he was held outside by two enormous men, which Canada will not have at it's disposal. To top it off, his whole gimmick is about "surviving" and in his matches, he usually a beating, only to, inevitably, "Hulk Up", overcome huge odds, and win.

    So, this match seems to play against Hart, and yet everyone seems to be voting for him. Is it because he's an Internet darling? I respect the Hitman a whole lot, but there's no way he should even be close with Hogan in this voting, and his record in this style of match backs me up. Hart is 1-5 when it comes to surviving. Hogan is 3-1.

    I kept it pretty much to these two guys as it seems like that's where the main competition is, judging by the voting. I see Hulk Hogan as our sole survivor.

    I hate to be in any way critical of how things are run for the WZO as IC has done a great job but I think that how the Survivor Series matches have been tabulated is incorrect.

    More people have thought that Hulk Hogan would survive than any member of team Canada, therefore should Hogan not be declared Sole Survivor giving the victory to Team USA?

    The results are under review. I do, however, encourage people to read my OP and see if they feel I was clear about how the results would be tabulated. But valid points have been made all around.

    I assume "OP" means Opening Post or Original Post? This is the opening post in this thread, minus the pictures.

    Looking at this, I don't see anywhere where it says that the total votes determine the winner, just that you should only vote for those wrestlers you feel will survive and be standing at the end of the match.

    Quote from OP:

    WHEN VOTING, YOU MAY ONLY VOTE FOR MEMBERS OF ONE TEAM OR THE OTHER. ONLY VOTE FOR THOSE WRESTLERS YOU FEEL WILL SURVIVE AND BE STANDING AT THE END OF THE MATCH!!!


    I believe this is what influenced many supporting USA, including myself, to vote strictly for Hogan or for Austin/Hogan. Realistically, if you support a sole survivor and the opponents support the entire opposing team, you will only gain 1 vote to their 4, and cannot possibly win the match.


    EDIT: I am in agreement with ThirdHebner here, as I was not given any impression that the TEAM with the most votes would get the win. I also checked the match rules thread, and could not find that stated there either.

    If you read the post you were clear, but there were a lot of people who probably didn't bother to read it or forgot about it. It also seems like there were a lot of posters who wanted a certain country to win so they voted for all 4 guys to survive in order to give them more total votes. It happened for all of the countries, but it happened the most with team Canada. I counted about 11 different posters who voted for every member of Team Canada to win and only 4 posters who voted for every member of Team USA.
