A really interesting and fantasy match-up. On personal bias, I would want Misawa to win because I'd love to see a big Japanese name in the Final 8 of this tournament (something I believe has not happened so far). But looking at it, it's tough to count out Angle in a match up like this. Angle has been in a Hell in a Cell match, and even won the damn thing against 5 of the topmost names of the Attitude Era (okay 4, excluding Rikishi). He's a legend in the WWE and this match happens in the WWE region, which means its in america against an Olympic gold medalist from ol' Murica, so he should win right? But this is not a game about just intangibles and external factors. Looking at the match closely, it comes down to who has a better pain threshold in a match like this. I believe Misawa to be of advantage in that regard. He was a tougher and stronger built guy and survived multiple matches against the 'strong style' opponents in Japan. Plus, HIAC match is all about brutality and violence. One devastating manuever on the floor may be game over for Angle. Vote Misawa.
