    Batista is nowhere near as shit as people make out he is. His match with Cena at WrestleMania 26 was a classic big time encounter, as was their earlier endeavour at SummerSlam 2008.

    Yokozuna was over for one reason - his body shape, and when the freakshow got boring, his stock plummetted. In most of his most memorable feuds - Luger, Hart etc. he wound up losing. Batista is a lot like Luger actually, except he's probably more charismatic. That charisma would turn Luger's countout win into a pinfall win for Big Dave.

    Batista's beaten guys like Umaga, Khali, Kane, and the Undertaker He is well-versed in the art of monster slaying, and he can take care of Yokozuna. Even if he can't lift the giant, he can spear the hell out of him and brutalize him on the mat. Yokozuna was great, but many times his role was to play the dragon that super-muscular guys like Batista would take down. Vote for The Animal.

    This sounds like a dream match I would pay to see. It goes without saying that Batista is a beast, but no matter how dominant he may be (and I think it would be a tight match), in the end, he would arrogantly try to go for the Batista Bomb, resulting in his back giving out, Yoko on top for the "upset." I just see Batista's cocky attitude getting the better of him and he slips up.

    I'm not a huge fan of either of these two, but I'm going with Batista for the win here. It's true that some of Batista's offense, such as the Batista Bomb, wouldn't work on Yoko because of his size. I also have no doubt that Yoko would manage to get in more than his share of offense just by using his girth.

    At the end, however, I think Batista's superior conditioning would make a huge difference and would ultimately lead him to win. If Batista can avoid the Banzai Drop, then I don't see Yoko pulling out the win. Even if Batista has to resort to a quick roll up that catches Yoko off guard, I see him picking up the win.

    This is my favorite yet. Yoko was a beast, a total killer, he was a fantastic big man, but when it comes down to it, when you put "a beast" vs "the beast" or "the animal", I am going with Batista for the win.

    While I could see this going either way, I'm more inclined to see Batista defeating Yokozuna in a similar manner to Luger at WMX, only with the spear knocking him out of the ring rather than the loaded forearm.

    I by far prefer Batista, but he was pure power. While he has, from time to time, beat guys bigger than him, I think against Yokozuna he finds that he doesn't have enough power to beat him, isn't fast enough to outmaneuver him, and ends up losing.

    People keep talking about Yoko's girth, but if we're talking about when these guys are in their prime, Yoko only weighed about 550. He wasn't the massive tub of goo that most people remember him as. While that may sound like a good thing for Yoko, it means Batista can spinebust him. He did it to Khali, he did it to Big Show, he can do it to Yoko. Batista takes this.

    Batista can utilize both the spear and the spinebuster. Both moves have put a number of guys away. Granted, it may take more than one, Batista can put big Yokozuna away. Speaking of girth, Batista's managed to beat Big Daddy V with a solid spinebuster, he can do the same to Yokozuna. Not even Yokozuna's hall of fame ring can save him here. Batista's unmatched stregnth and speed are too much for Yokozuna to overcome. Batista moves on in a hard hitting match up.

    Guys like Yokozuna are in this business to lose to guys like Batista. Batista is an awesome physical specimen that has the look of a star. When your built like Batista you need someone unique to pose a challenge. Yokozuna fits that roll. Yokozuna could definitley be perceived as a threat to Batista but ultimatley his roll would be to let the star conquer him. Yoko has a size advantage against everybody but Batista has enough power to overcome that. If Ahmed Johnson could slam a heavier than his prime Yoko then I think Batista can take the big man down.

    So much of what I've read here is foolishness. Look at the GDPs of Japan vs. The Phillipines. Are Ted Turner and Eric Bischoff really going to piss off a bunch of Japanese billionaires in white suits by having Yokozuna lose to the guy who may or may not have a past in every porn movie ever made? Is Turner broadcasting willing to lose Sony as a sponsor?

    Plus Hogan is in charge here, he is going to have the guy from his prime, Yoko go over so that Yoko looks strong enough that it makes Hogan follow up victory look that much sweeter.

    Yokozuna was an unstoppable force in his prime days with the WWF. A well tenured champion holding the title for 280 days, he also ended Hulkamania in the WWF, he beat Bret Hart in their first match, Lex Luger was never able to beat him, he holds a victory over the Undertaker in a casket match, he's a multi-time tag champion with Owen Hart, he's also a Royal Rumble winner, and besides all that he comes from one of the most well-known and respected wrestling families in the history of the business.

    I like Batista, and he's beaten top competition, but I think Yoko would be a bit much for him. I don't really think he could physically dominate Yokozuna, or that he would out-wrestle him either. Yokozuna was very fast for a man of his size, very powerful, and very agile at his size. Few wrestlers have ever existed like him that possessed all the tools that he did. It would be cool to see Batista beat Yokozuna because it would truly be a feat, but with all his accolades and achievements, this is a test I think he would indeed fail. He has more title reigns and he does have wins over some top names, and many other accomplishments similar to Yokozuna's own, but one Banzai Drop is all it would take.

    I know I'm in the minority, but I gotta give it to Yoko. He was a two-time WWF champ back when being a repeat champ actually meant something. Yes, this includes him winning the title at WrestleMania from Bret Hart. What happened after the fact is almost irrelevant, he beat Bret Hart for the WWF title at Wrestlemania!

    That being said, Batista wold probably spend the match being the smaller man, which would be very difficult for him to endure. I would imagine there would be plenty of false bodyslams, where Batista just can't pick up Yoko. Finally, when Batista gets on a roll, get's the big man rocking, is about to try to pick him up... up jumps to the apron Mr. Fuji! Fuji distracts Batista long enough to throw salt in his eyes and give Yoko a samoan drop, leg drop, banzai drop.

    Yokozuna by pinfall, 14 minutes.

    Ye when Batista can't lift his opponents for the Batista Bomb, he pins them with a spinebuster. A stupid spinebuster that is probably below all the good ones like Arn's or Hunter's or even Booker's. Thats what he did to Khali. So no Batista Bomb here.

    Man I hate this. I love Yoko. He was so very good and agile my god. His leg drop. THAT LEG DROP. Best of all time. He was dominant and held the championship on multiple occasions. But Batista was fed big men like Yoko to raise his stock. He was proclaimed as a beast and made his career by stomping monster heels.




    (Sigh). No. You know what? Fuck it! Vote Yokozuna


    Yoko won the Royal Rumble by taking Randy motherflippin' Savage's finisher and then bench pressing him from the mat to the floor below thus eliminating him. That's impressive. Batista won his Rumble under dubious circumstances and then eliminated Cena. Has he done anything like Yoko? Hell NO!

    Banzai!

    He won against a hot Hart and then some shit against Hogan happened. Bottom line, he beat the big dogs. He beat Hogan, Taker, Bret and Luger. Yoko beat Taker in a title so bad in a casket match with the help of the entire that he had to take a sabbatical and fly off the Titantron, Batista lost to Taker at Mania for the strap.


    Banzai!

    This would be a boring match in my opinion. Yoko is too big for Batista for the most part, but the common feature with these "giant" size wrestlers, is that they rarely get up after being slammed once. I could quite easily see Yoko dominating Batista in the early going, but when climbing the ropes for the Banzai Drop, Big Dave gets to his feet, slides under Yoko and hits a very sloppy Batista Bomb to get a pinfall win.

    Winner: Batista

    I was never really a fan of Batista. Batista could have the role of Lex Luger here but before that Yoko was really dominant in his prime. This one is really though but I think I still have to go with Yoko.

    I think back to Batista Vs Umaga and how Batista botched a finisher because he couldn't lift Umaga properly for it. My point being that Batista isn't as strong as he looks, he's up against a guy bigger and better and Yoko ended Hulk Hogan. Seems pretty clear to me. What can Batista actually do here? Very little in reality.

    True, you can say that look at other guys Batista has beaten and stuff, but remember what happened when Khali first mat Taker. Thats right he squashed him. Batista will never win his first match witha monster like Yoko but he may win the dead rubber. Yoko was very dominant at the top. A Yoko on top of his game is a unstoppable heel who can only be beaten in stupid ways like WMania 9.



    Remember Hulk lost a one on one, proper match to Yoko. Is Batista bigger than Hogan was?


    Banzai!

    Why is this one so close? To me the vote should be wider. Batista has freaky strength to begin with and while he might not be able to Batista Bomb Yoko, the Spinebuster and Spear were his secondary finishers and they are both fairly common in use against monsters. Batista also happens to have a formidable record against such monsters. Khali, Umaga, Big Daddy V, Kane, JBL (his size/weight counts here) and even the Undertaker all fell victim to Batista over the years and ultimately one victory over Hulk Hogan does not make Yokozuna better than a guy who had an overall better career and a more impressive win/loss ratio. Batista's the guy to win here.

    Batista should win here. Yes, Yoko was a dominant beast for one year but people forget that Yoko also lost to Luger who was supposed to be the next Hulk Hogan and someone who, in build and wrestling style is very similar to Batista. The only reason Yoko won against Hogan was because Hogan was on his way out of the company. Yoko may be the guy to end Hulkamania but he is also the guy who loses to a better talent like Batista, a guy who has the ability to run the company on his shoulders, which is something Batista did for the Smackdown brand.

    Also Batista has the spear. He has beaten heavyweights like Khali and Big Show with it, so it is not like he has to lift Yoko up for the bomb to beat him. He has also performed the spinebuster on Show, so he can certainly do it on Yoko as well for the win.

    Yoko is a hall of famer with wins over some of the best of his day. Batista had wins over some of the best his days to and is freakishly strong. That being said I see this one playing out with a spinebuster at the 15 minute mark 1-2...OMG he kicks out! This infuriates Batista who trys a Batista Bomb countered into a Banzai for the 1-2-3.

    Vote Yoko

    Batista tries to spear Yoko, gets his head stuck in the big guys bellybutton and suffocates. Yoko wins by submission.

    If this fued was booked, I imagine it to be a best of 3 seried with Batista getting the victory, more for business reasons than in ring ability. I vote on In Ring Ability. I vote for Yoko.

    A match I would love to see, but Yoko used more of his potential than Batista. I always wanted more from Dave, & he left the business at his height. Not the man I want to vote for.
