I voted for Bob Backlund here, and I stand by it. Don't get me wrong, I loved Hassan's character and his dismissal was a sad case of censorship. Backlund, on the other hand, may have been bland and boring, but damn if he wasn't consistent. He wrestled long matches with other legends, and the Arnold Skaaland Towel Throw is a HUGE moment in wrestling history - one that has been replicated but never with the same impact. Backlund has always been (and still is) in fantastic shape, and is a fantastic technical wrestler. I loved watching him work over an opponent's shoulder before clamping on the Crossface Chickenwing. Once again, I CAN NOT give Hassan the nod in the match because he was booked well. I give it to the guy I think will win. Final note - as far as Backlund being "boring," Jake, are you saying you were not the least bit interested by the Backlund redeux in the 90's as the "elder statesman" who flipped out on magazine writers, Jim Ross, etc? The match with Bret Hart was pretty strong as well, even if it only served to further the Bret vs Owen feud.
