    I was expecting certain people to come and weight in here, Skullz wasn't one of them. I am pleasantly surprised, and this rings of a good debate.

    You make a strong point, but I don't think you can base a vote for Andre in THIS round based off of what "may happen" next round. We're not trying to book a good tournament, we're trying to settle who is the best of all time based on who would realisitcally win in these situations. I think Andre in his prime (mid 70's Japan and early WWF) would take out HHH in his prime ('97-2000) in a great match.

    Much the way I feel about Yokozuna vs Undertaker, I also feel about a potential Andre vs HBK match. It would depend largely on the stipulation. And while HHH vs HBK is a FAR move even encounter, I think Andre vs HBK is far more polarizing, pitting two TOTALLY different styles from two TOTALLY different eras against one another. Wrestlemania 6 was the only time these two appeared on the same WM card, no?

    Anyway, I feel a vote for Andre is justified and that he'd also have a good shot, depending on stipulation, of going over HBK as well. But we won't know without YOUR vote, people!

    This is a GREAT match up with two absolute superstars. I agree that there are not many people in this bracket that can go over Andre the Giant ... but I think Triple H is one of them.
    Trips is a phenomonally charismatic character and is an absolute Hall of Famer as a heel ... Andre is one of the best showman ever and really put on fairly good matches for such a large man in the "pre-spot monkey" era.
    I definitely went back and forth on this one, but in the end Triple H and his 11 World Titles gets the nod with a sledghammer move to take down the Giant.

    I go for Trips in an 18 minute classic!

    Andre is making a last minute comeback, come on people we can make this happen! Andre should win this match, cast those votes and get Andre to the next round to face off with Hogan, because that will cause classic debate.

    I hate to do it but I have to vote for HHH. Everyone can go on about how great Andre used to be. That's fine, I belive you. But my exposure of Andre is late 80's only. And in the late 80's he was a broken down old man. So unlike HHH I didn't see Andre get progressivley worse.
