    Booker. I seem to remember Booker pinning Wrath in a tv title match on Nitro. That was Booker at the beginning of his singles push yet about the best Clarke ever was. Clarke has nothing at all that would stop Booker, who gets a relatively easy win here.

    Booker T- Part of one of the greatest tag teams of all time and also an amazing singles competitor. Won a total of 6 heavyweight titles between WCW and the WWE. The only wrestler from the Invasion to make it to the main event in the WWE. Great in the ring, great on the mic, and a guy with legitimate hall of fame credentials.

    Bryan Clarke- As a singles competitor he beat up on jobbers and lost to mid carders. He was part of a mildly successful tag team in WCW, but the team failed in the WWE.

    Booker T would absolutely crush Bryan Clarke. The hardcore environment really doesn't change much, it probably benefits Booker T if anything.

    I can't say it any clearer than it already has. Booker T gets the win here. In a shoot match, Clarke makes it close, because he did have a tremendous amount of strength, but not enough talent to overtake Booker. Booker will keep it in the ring, and keep it technical, and end it with a Book End in the middle of the ring.

    Booker should have a pretty easy road to Bruno Sammartino, as Morales and Blassie are both out of their league here.

    Despite having an incredible pun based name throughout his WWF tenure, Bryan Clark never really amounted to much. He was just a generic big man, who enjoyed moderate success as a tag team wrestler, but who never really made ny impact in singles wrestling.

    Booker T, without checking, is probably the most decorated black wrestler of all time. When he cared, he was actually very good, and was one of the few decent things left in WCW when it closed. Booker has shown that he can beat people like this repeatedly, and I think he'd take this one pretty quickly, you dig?

    When Clark was at his best, Booker T still beat him so I don't see Clark winning here. An easy win for Booker T and probably an easy second round win for him as well.

    Clarke only had a few month run as a part of KroniK where he was pushed as a legit bad ass. KroniK was simply WCW's version of the APA, two shit workers that were known more for working stiff because they couldn't work a proper match, that's about it. Booker T not only is better then Clarke in the ring, but I would imagine that Booker T could probably shoot and bust Clarke up real bad, just ask Batista.

    I can't stress enough how important Booker T has been to wrestling (specifically, how much he has influenced the type of African-American wrestler companies now look for). And, while I have always liked Clarke (I liked his Adam Bomb gimmick in the WWF), Booker T, relatively speaking, is just too big of a name for Clarke to go over. Maybe if this were a tag team match, Clarke would go over Booker T (Harlem Heat vs. KroniK would actually be a decent match), but, in a singles match, Booker T rolls over him.

    Booker T. I loved Kronik as a kid, they seemed pretty bad assed, almost like Stone Cold, except as a tag team in the WCW. But Booker T was better as a tag team wrestler and much better as a singles wrestler. A Bomb was not good, King Bookah was better, and his stuff in the decline of WCW was the only reason I kept watching.
