Tenzan VS Hunico
Tenzan is a 4-time IWGP World Champion, and Hunico is technically still a WWE employee...You do the math. Tenzan in four.
Angelo Poffo VS The Miz
The man who sired "Macho Man" Randy Savage and "Leaping" Lanny Poffo against some dude who was on The Real World season ten? You do the math. Well, okay, it's not that simple. The Miz has main evented a Wrestlemania, been WWE Champion, won several IC and Tag titles, and is actually not too bad in the ring. If this was a figure four contest, Angelo takes it all weekend, but this is who would win in a one on one, and as controversial as the opinion is, The Miz would win in seven and a half minutes.
Terry "Bam Bam" Gordy VS Adam Bomb (aka Bryan Clarke)
Adam Bomb was an impressive specimen, and Kronik was a fun team, but Terry Gordy was an original Freebird and he was in one of the toughest teams I'd ever seen when I was a kid with "Dr. Death" Steve Williams, a combo called the "Miracle Violence Connection" when they were in All-Japan. A guy from the "Miracle Violence Connection" ain't losin' in the first round to a guy managed by Raven back when he was still Johnny Polo.
"The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes VS Joey Ryan
Bringing sleazy back ain't near enough to last more than three minutes against the son of a plumber, if you weel!
The Patriot (aka Del Wilkes) VS Gory Guerrero
Full Disclosure: When I was setting up this bracket, I landed on Abraham Lincoln as The Patriot's original opponent. Should I have made an exception and fed the patriarch of the Guerrero family to Killer Kowalski instead? Maybe so, but I wanted to keep the brackets random, so here we are.
Anyway, The Patriot was GWF's answer to Sting. He was the hero the little kids looked up to and the main good guy the bad guys feared. He had brief stints in the WCW and WWF (even had a match of some note with Bret Hart), but he would be no match for Gory Guerrero. That man invented the camel clutch and the Gory Special, two wrestling moves that have been used more times than The Patriot has said the pledge of allegiance. Gory advances.
Tito Santana VS Crimson
Crimson, even in his "prime" was a pushover propped up by an unearned Goldberg gimmick, so Tito hits El Paso de la Muerte in a minute and a half, school boys this doufas and advances to the second round.
Buddy Roberts (of The Fabulous Freebirds) VS Luke Gallows
Luke Gallows may be the second most underrated big man in the business behind Matt Morgan right now, so I'm putting him over, Freebird opponent or not.
Drew McIntyre VS Titus O'Neil
I don't think Drew McIntyre gets a fair shake, but let's be serious: Even in his prime, he would get flattened by Titus O'Neil. He's just too big.
