Wladek Zbyszko VS "Big Cat" Ernie Ladd
In the 60's, Ernie Ladd was one of the biggest football players to ever step on the gridiron (6'9", 315lbs.). He wound up in the AFL Hall Of Fame and the WWF Hall Of Fame. But Even with all of his accomplishments, Wladek Zbyszko can say that he beat Ed "The Strangler" Lewis. Twice. Legit. (We're talking in the 19-teens, before it was all a work.) Gotta give it to Wladek.
Lance Hoyt VS "Grandmaster Sexay" Brian Christopher
There's a pretty sizable boot in Christopher's face's future, followed by a relaxing light-counting session. Hoyt!
Buff Bagwell VS "Nature Boy" Ric Flair
The only real question here is: After Ric Flair beats this guy, is he gonna follow Buff back to his new job and try to be a male gigolo. (Hey, don't laugh. It's the Nature Boy, and he needs the money. Could happen.)
One Man Gang (aka Akeem) VS Jay Lethal
As fun as seeing Jay Lethal (who does an AMAZING Ric Flair impersonation) fight Ric Flair, The Gang's gotta go over. Size and experience win. (Question is though, would he wrestle as Akeem to get more heel heat cuz his opponent is black? If this is the WWF we're talking about, they are the company that had a George Bush impersonator call Cryme Tyme the N Word.)
