    I'll be voting for El Santo, only because he managed to establish enough of a continuity for winning to where I can't imagine Ultimo Dragon beating him. However; I'm really hoping that El Santo gets humbled in the next round.

    El Santo is going to win this. Usually, the argument against him is that he's foreign so nobody would back him. That doesn't apply here, and I can see no reason why he wouldn't go over.

    Remember when Santo defeated the Rock and Sting in back to back matches? That was a crazy moment in tournament history.

    That picture of Ultimo Dragon always cracks me up. There's no denying ho decorated a performer the man was, but I don't recall him ever carrying a promotion before. In fact he was more of a modern day journeyman, hopping from promotion to promotion and filling in where needed. He was far removed from the popularity of a Tiger Mask or a Jushin Liger.

    Santo on the other hand didn't just carry a promotion, he carried the industry of an entire country on his back. He's very much lauded as the most popular and beloved luchadore in history. Even more than 30 years after his death, he still remains a household name in Mexico. His state funeral drew more people than a weekly episode of RAW does, let alone an Ultimo Dragon match.

    A strong showing for the Saint in the first round.
