    I'm slightly kidding of course. But Stan Hansen is tough. He's mean. He has the wrestling skills to beat anyone. He's a brawler who nearly knocked Vader's eye out. He's a runaway train of destruction and on top of all of that... he's beaten some of the best this business has offered. Hogan? Check. Flair? Check. Inoki? Check it off. Vader? Check that, too. Undertaker? Checkeroo. I can go on and on, but it's a moot point. Fact is, Hansen is an amazing competitor and someone who can and will destroy all that comes in his path.

    So vote for Stan Hansen. No matter who he faces... it's not a wrong choice to vote for him. Thank Wikipedia for these tidbits about The Lariat.

    Do you have any videos of him defeating the likes of Hulk Hogan, or the Undertaker, when they were in their prime? (or proper character, in Taker's case) What about the Vader video?

    I'm curious because a lot of times you can simply say "so and so WON against him, him, and him" but just saying that doesn't really cut it anymore. I mean, right? Edge "won" against Taker, Rock, Austin, Cena, etc, etc.. but some were tag matches, some were due to massive cheating.. so it doesn't really count, does it?

    So off some of Hansen's best stuff, and help improve winning votes. Especially over the names you've mentioned him beating.

    I'll be voting against him because you listed PWI and WON garbage.

    Did Hansen beat Undertaker in his prime? No. Did he beat Hogan during his prime? A few times actually. We only know of the show where Hogan beat Hansen with his Lariat. Hansen's gotten the best of him, too. I don't know if there's video, but it's happened.

    My point is, Hansen's in ring style is mult-dimensional and he can beat any wrestler on any given day. No matter the gimmick. No matter the person. Few wrestlers can do that. Hansen can. I can make a case and HAVE made cases as to why Hansen would beat any given wrestler... and I truly think he can.

    LARIATOOOOOOOOOOoOOOOOO!

    My vote is for Hansen. And I hope yours is too, or Stan will knock your head clear off your shoulders. J/k, or am I?

    I said it in my post for the Lariat in his match, if there's one thing I learned by posting on this forum it's that Stan Hansen is a fucking beast.
