    I think Jeff Jarret would win here. It is a very close match-up. Rude has done a whole lot in the business, but Double J has done more for the business. Jarret has always been, and still is, a solid in ring competitor. Who knows, maybe we would see a cheap Guitar shot at the end.

    Rude was a very good wrestler but lets be honest he was never considered a Main Eventer. Jarret on the other hand was a six time NWA champion as well as a four time WcW Heavyweight Champion

    Rick Rude was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was a popular wrestler, that was one of the most over heels in the most popular company in the world in it's golden age. He was unfortunate to have his peak period of popularity coincide with that of guys like Hulk Hogan and as a result, his career never got the accolades it deserved. Furthermore, by the time the title started changing every week, he had been retired by injury. Even with that born in mind, he still had some good midcard title reigns, being hand picked to beat the Ultimate Warrior, and was part of the weird title situation in WCW in the very early 90s. A man who's career on paper is immensely less than his quality in reality deserved.

    Jeff Jarrett was in the right place at the right time. He was an average wrestler, that was one of the most over heels in the second most popular company in the world in it's death throes/infancy. He was fortunate to have his peak period of popularity coincide with that of guys like Buff Bagwell and as a result, his career got far more accolades than it deserved. Furthermore, by the time the title started changing every week, he had become Vince Russo's best mate. Even with that born in mind, he still had some lacklustre midcard title reigns, being hand picked to lose to Chyna, and was part of the embarrassing title situation in WCW in the very early 00s. A man who's career on paper is immensely more than his quality in reality deserved.

    Vote Rude.

    This would be a great match!

    Rick Rude was all around quality, while Jeff Jarrett is probably a little over-criticised as a performer due to his pointless WCW title reigns and constantly keeping himself as champion in his own promotion TNA. Jarrett is not worthy of being a 10-time champion, but he probably should have a few reigns to talk about.

    The cockiness of both these guys is off the chart, the build up would probably be even better than the match itself! Could you imagine Rude going after Karen Jarrett? It would be brilliant to see!

    I could see this being pretty close, but when you look at the calibre of opponent Rude beat to become champion compared to Jarrett's opponents, you have to give Rick the advantage there, and I think he was the better wrestler overall.

    Jarrett is good, but Rude is that bit better and knowing Rude's willingness to break the rules, he would know when the standard JJ guitar shot was coming, avoid it, and then hit the Rude Awakening for the 3 count.

    Rick Rude wins.

    Rick Rude would win this match. Both Jarrett and Rude are former WCW & WWF wrestlers who were great heels in their time there. I give the edge to Rude because he was a main event talent wherever he went while Jarrett had to create TNA w/ his dad just so he could be the top talent and then he lost control of his own company to Kurt Angle and Dixie Carter. I always thought Rude had more charisma, better mic skills, and in ring talent than Jarrett. Finally Rick Rude is a Midwest wrestler from my home state of Minnesota and I gotta support the home team.

    This is a very interesting one on paper and I could easily vote for either guy. What you're looking at here is a match of actual results vs. potential. Now the asterisk by those results (Jarrett's) is that he won all those titles when either A, no one else was there to win them, or B, when he and his daddy owned the company. At the end of the day though, he actually won them. Rude won whatever you want to call the Big Gold Belt so he was a world champion, but it was never the top title there. I'll go with Jarrett but not by much.

    Rick Rude and it won't be close. Rude defeated the likes of Ultimate Warrior, Randy Savage, and Sting in their primes. Jarrett's done very little in his years in the biz, except earn favor with bookers and promoters.

    Rude was a great wrestler and his Rude Awakening would finish Jarrett in 10 minutes or less. Simply Ravishing OWWW!

    The criteria is not who you like more, but who would win a one-on-one contest.

    Ravishing Rick Rude was a great competitor and has pretty good in the ring for someone that was more well known for their physique than their mat wrestling ability. But that being said, Jeff Jarrett has always been more successful against higher level opponents. Rude rarely beat anyone that wasn't a jobber. Rude does have the advantage of Heenan at ringside, but Jarrett would have his trusty guitar. Also, with this being in the WCW region, the advantage of screwy finishes goes Jarrett's way.

    Jarrett pinfall by screwy WCW finish (hits Rude over head with guitar behind ref's back, pins him with guitar pieces everywhere), 18 minutes.

    I'm sorry but Ric Flair, Sting, Ricky Steamboat, and Ultimate Warrior are jobbers? I think you are grossly underestimating Rude's in ring ability. He is more than capable of hanging with and defeating Jarrett. He's beaten better.

    I said he "rarely" beat anyone other than jobbers. I acknowledge Rude's accomplishments and his in-ring ability is superb. But he wasn't a major champion or even a main eventer. Jeff Jarrett, like him or not, nepotism or not, has been a headliner for years now.

    I hate JJ, but let's be objective, he deserves the win over Rude.
