    I always liked listening to Piper run his mouth on the mic than watch him wrestle, though that's not to say that he didn't put on entertaining matches a good deal of the time. Piper was a solid all around technical guy and he was a surprisingly good brawler but I have to go with Kane on this.

    In Kane's prime, especially the first year or so as the character, he was damn near unstoppable and dominated even the Undertaker. I can easily see Piper as the scrappy underdog in this match doing everything he possibly can ranging from trying to rake the eyes to a low blow or two when the ref isn't looking just to stun Kane or even take him off his feet. He puts up a valiant struggle and goes down swinging, but he goes down. Kane wins.

    While I'll also be voting for Kane, I take issue with the above statement that Kane dominated 'Taker in his first year. To my knowledge Kane had never, NEVER beaten 'Taker in a singles match until what 2010? 'Taker always had Kane's number.

    Ok, now that that's out of the way, while Piper as of now may be the more legendary one of the two; Kane is the more successful and more accomplished of the 2. More championships, more main event runs, etc. Also, Piper has a horrible record against those perceived as monsters.

    Vote Kane.

    Roddy was the epitome of awesome, and he never won anything bigger than the IC belt (go fuck yourself Vince).

    Kane comes from an era where you had to have a soul-shattering finishing move to be able to beat your opponent, and he was one of those performers who had to be given three tombstone piledrivers before he would stay down long enough for the ref to count to three. Also, in spite of what some would recognize as ridiculous circumstances; Kane is a former WWE Champion.

    In the way that upper-midcarders like Roddy Piper are racked and stacked, nobody has had the impact that Kane has had. Roddy fights his heart out, but he can't beat the Big Red Machine.

    Vote Kane.

    I'm not sure why Rowdy Roddy Piper is ranked this much higher than Kane. I liked Piper's character, excellent with a microphone and has moments in wrestling that won't soon be forgotten. Moments that immediately come to mind are his matches in Wrestlemania 1. His gimmick boxing match in WM2. His pineapple smashing moment on Piper's Pitt where he drew a crap ton of heat, violating Jimmy Snuka. His hilarious match vs Goldust at Mania. His decent match vs Bret Hart and his match vs Bad News Brown where he painted himself half black.

    I respect his moments and his career. But vs The Big Red Machine Kane...he just doesn't stack up. Kane has won a wall full of titles in his time since becoming the masked demon. He's had more success as a heel than Piper. Kane vs Piper would result in a chokeslam loss for HotRod all day long, no matter what type of match they had.

    I vote Kane.

    Sure, some may not like where Kane's career has gone lately, but he never went blackface while in his prime.

    Vote Kane.

    Kane.

    Piper was as legit as they come & one of the best heels ever. Problem is, he never really bested the bigger names of his time & failed to get the big titles. Kane has beaten some big names and gained an impressive resume doing so. Piper wont be able to stop this crazy bastard.

    Very surprised to see the poll going the way it is, but I voted Kane. The monster who slayed the champion. So rarely has that been seen, but it was in Kane. Piper's a bigger name, for sure, and arguably a better wrestler, but the kind of trustworthy longevity that Kane has had means he has earned a place in the next round. Kane wins.

    I voted for Kane. He defeated Stone Cold at the peak of his popularity for the WWE title, albeit for only a day. After winning the world title he defeated the Undertaker on three consecutive PPV's, with the on the line each time. He was never pinned by either Goldberg or Triple H in 03-04, and he spent his first few months of his career basically bulldozing through everyone.

    Like Piper, Kane has basically been a solid upper mid carder and occasional main event player for 20 years, but with profoundly more success and accolades.
