    This is a first round match-up in the all time survivor series team tournament. These two teams have been selected at random to face each other. Polls will be open for 3 days.

    Team Guerrero

    Team Guerrero is from the 2004 Survivor Series, and consisted of Eddie Guerrero, The Big Show, Rob van Dam, and John Cena. They defeated "Team Angle '04," consisting of Kurt Angle, Carlito, Luther Reigns, and Mark Jindrak. Guerrero, Big Show, and Cena all survived, with RVD the only team member eliminated.

    The Radicalz

    The Radicalz is from the 2000 Survivor Series, and consisted of Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Perry Saturn, and Dean Malenko. They defeated Billy Gunn, K-Kwik, Road Dogg, and Chyna. Benoit and Saturn both survived, though Billy Gunn probably no-sold it.

    Have to go with the liars, the cheaters and the stealers. The Radicalz were much more important as a symbol of WCW's decline than the impact they had in the ring. Saturn and Malenko did nothing of note in WWE aside from comedy, but to be fair they could go in the ring. On the other hand you have four world champions. Show me the weak link in that team. Who is it, RVD? Eddie? Former title holders. Big Show brings the power that none of the Radicalz have to this, and with Eddie being canceled out, you have RVD or Cena factoring out Benoit, leaving either Cena or RVD and Big Show against Saturn and Malenko. I think that speaks for itself.

    This is rather unique. You have Eddie basically cancelling himself out, leaving Cena, Big Show and Rob Van Dam vs. Benoit, Malenko, and Saturn. I could honestly see Big Show being able to handle both Malenko and Saturn on his own. Remember that this was a time where Big Show had just come off of hiatus, was quicker AND more aggressive than anyone had seen from him in some time. Benoit could probably neutralize Cena OR RVD, but not both. Benoit would most likely be able to get RVD to tap, but it wouldn't matter. Big Show and Cena would overpower Benoit, and in the end, Big Show and Cena would remain the survivors.

    Yeah, this is easy. As accomplished as both Saturn and Malenko are. They dont stand up to John Cena and RVD. Big Show would have a hard time with Chris Benoit and might even lose to him. But in the end RVD and Cena would take this without much hassle at all. Speed and Strength with those two. With Eddie cancelling himself out, and Big Show having some problems with the smaller Benoit. I know its a weird way to look at it, but Big Show, Cena, and RVD, are the sould of this team, and they are much better than the other three put together.

    Team Guerrero FTW.

    There isn't too much else I can say. It has all been stated above.

    Eddie cancels himself out.

    Cena over Benoit.

    Big Show and RVD over Malenko and Saturn.

    As important as the Radicalz are, this isn't the place for them to showcase their abilities. They all have more sucess in singles careers, and this is a matchup where they can't pick apart guys like Cena and the Big Show. Their wrestling ability is up against too much power, and essentially they lose Eddie, which is a big setback as he is their luchador.

    Gotta give it to team Guererro.

    I loved The Radicalz, they were so damn entertaining, their promos were funny, there matches were good, and they're pretty much the reason I loved Benoit so much. However, Team Guerrero is better in this match up. RVD, Cena and Show are all great, and, with the exception of Benoit (And obviously, Eddie, who is involved with both), would beat The Radicalz without breaking much of a sweat.

    When I think of The Radicalz I can pretty much pinpoint only two moments from when they were together. One would be them sitting at ringside, the other would be Eddie Guerrero's arm popping out of socket. I remember a couple of other moments, but they don't come easily to me. Probably because The Radicalz really aren't worth remembering. WWE sure weren't that intrested in them. Just a couple of weeks later they lost to Chyna & Too Cool at WrestleMania. I actually forgot that they were still associated together come November of that year.

    Benoit was always supposed to be the star, but really it was Eddie Guerrero. The guy who's in both teams, so I guess that means that it's Benoit against three wrestlers who at one point or another have been WWE cahmpion. Big Show & RVD have both had pretty worthless title reigns. But Cena had one of the best reigns of recent years, and he'd get rid of Benoit easily.

    Team Gurrero takes this one easily for me. Cancell Gurerro out, and you have Saturn, Malenko, Benoit Vs. RVD, Cena, Big Show. Saturn never achieved anything of note in the WWE and the only thing I remember from him was moppy. Malenko while a gifted performer was a low midcard wrestler in the WWE, who feuded with Lita. He could probably out "wrestler" show, rvd, and cena but woudn't win. Benoit also was gifted but he is up against 3 guys who all are fairly talented. The Radicals were great and funny but they wouldn't be able to defeat Team Gurerro.

    Team Guerrero in a cake walk. The 2004 EG was better than the 2000 EG, so that already gives 1 point to team Guerrero. Dean Malenko never accomplished much, and Saturn was a "never" was in the WWE. John Cena was an up and comer, and the Big Show was dominant, and RVD was alright too. Team Guerrero had star power, and the Radicalz only had Eddie Guerrero. That alone gives the edge to Team Guerrero.
