I'm not going to sit here and put on a 10-page rant, defending the guy I think is going to win or should win. I don't see how anyone can look at this matchup and see a clearcut winner. This is tougher than I thought by a LANDSLIDE. Every second I find a direction to lean and it's tearing me apart. But I will make a few points. If Austin wins two years in a row, who gives a fuck. Doesn't he deserve it?? I really hate when people compare the tenacity of finsihers, as if they were something real to judge a wrestler on. Come on, now. I guess that pretty soon you're all going to convince me that Santa's real, right? Pfffft... My vote will be based on the criteria in which I feel this match should be judged. But I still haven't decided what criteria is truly suitable for a match of this magnitude. - If based on the hypothetical matchup between the two, is there even a clear winner? Both of these guys could beat each other at any time in any point in their careers. - If based on who had the most effective prime in the business, Austin has to win. He drew more money and revolutionized the business more. - If based on popularity, I'd judge it on how long both of these men stayed at the top of the business in which case, Sting would win. - If based on brutality of finishing maneuvers, I'd laugh in the face of whoever suggested that. So I'm still not convinced. This is so fucking hard.
