    One of the greatest of all time vs. Soda Popinski, this is gonna be hard to figure out.

    Nikita you have no chance here. Good for you doing well pretending to be Russian and all but you are up against on of the all time greats in Macho Man Randy Savage. Is there anything at all the Nikita does better than Macho because I can't think of one. Superior character, charisma, wrestling skills, matches and mic skills, Nikita has literally nothing on Randy outside of being able to speak Russian.

    Yeah Randy wins this one.

    I really would like to make some elaborate post and talk about both guys, but I can't.

    What needs to be said has already been said by the posters above me. One of the absolute greatest of all time versus what ever you want to describe the other guy as, but he falls incredibly short when compared to Savage.

    OH YEAH, THE MACHO MAN GOES OVER HERE, DIG IT!!!!!

    Little known fact... Randy Savage's dad ran a promotion in Lexington, KY called ICW... had some solid in ring technicians like Ron Garvin, Cowboy Bob Orton, and Leaping Lanny Poffo, better known as The Genius.

    So this is home field advantage, plus the fact that Savage is in every shape and form, better than Nikita Koloff.

    Macho gets this one.

    DIG IT?!

    Talking about digging stuff, I dig Nikita Koloff. The guy participated in some great feuds and was very decent inside the ring. You'd be surprised at how good his work is at first impression - he looks like a standard, ripped guy over for gimmick and physique when actually his striking is great, he bumps around really well and is super entertaining. Whenever I've researched these tourneys and checked out a few of his matches I've been hugely impressed.

    Anyway, he's great but Savage is far better and would never lose here. I really can't be bothered to defend this choice any more than that. Nikita's really good though and his career would have more defining moments if he caught a few more breaks. Unfortunately for him, Savage maximised his potential and will go down as one of the best ever.

    Always liked Koloff, but like has already been said. Savage is one of the best ever, and wins in a squash here. Koloff can't compete in this one. Can't really say anything else.

    I don't see why people are dissing Koloff, its not like he was a waster!

    However, The Macho Man goes down as one of the all time greats. There ain't no way a guy like Koloff would ever pin Savage in the first round of a tournament like this. A pretty easy 1st round tie for Savage and he wins after just 5 minutes

    Winner: Randy Savage

    Koloff is one of many men who succeeded because they were able to pull off a passable Soviet Union wrestler during the Cold War. Beyond that, he didn't offer much. Savage is one of the best wrestlers of all time, and this would be a straight forward win.

    I thought Nikita Koloff was the dogs bollocks when I first encountered him as Sting's nemesis in WCW and I still regard him highly two decades later... he did rock the bald goateed brawler several years before a certain Mr Austin and Mr Goldberg rose to prominence. He was regarded as a serious contender for every belt in every organisation he ever worked in.

    Having said that, Savage wasn't just a contender - he repeatedly won the big titles.

    It wouldn't be a squash but Savage would win through.

    This is a good match for the first round. Savage is a superstar and Koloff is not a pushover. This is the type of match that would be competitive even though the outcome would never be in doubt. Savage is one of the most famous and popular wrestlers ever. Koloff did well for himself over a brief period of time but isn't on Savage's level.
