Thesz is a former NWA champion and created the Lou Thesz press. A move that stonecold steve austin uses..Thesz is one of the greatest wrestlers from the 60s and 70s...He unfortunately is deceased. Devon Storm is the former Crowbar of WCW who was known for his hardcore style in the promotion. Also would come to the ring with Daffney aka Lucy Furr. He has been a tag partner with David Flair. he has been in the business since 92, and has appeared in XPW and NWATNA. he is known for his intense matches on the indy circuit against Sabu. Likes to mix the hardcore weapons with aerial moves and is well respected on the Indy Circuit.

This is a choice I didn't want to make so early because I am a fan of Devon Storm and what he did in the indy circut, a while back when I was growing up. I liked his Tag Team with Ace Darling. They were able to win some titles in smaller federations, and they worked well as a tag team with good chemistry like when; Storm and Darling defeated the Misfits for the NWA United States Tag Team title. I think August 29, 1998, Storm and Darling captured the EWA (Eternity Wrestling Assocation) Tag Team title from Slayer and Lupus. Storm and Darling defeated Harley Lewis and Lupus for the NWA 2000 Tag Team titles. And then on November 28, 1998, Storm and Darling won a tournament to capture the ECWA (East Coast Wrestling Association) tag team titles. He's also a former NWA World Light Heavyweight Champion. Fomer Reginal NWA television champion(New York), WCW Tag champion, WCW CruiserWeight Champion, and a few hordkore titles to add. Needless to say he has been a good entertainer amongst fans who follow smaller promotions and indy affiars. Or if you caught him as a cruiseweight when WCW was still running.

But then all that gets shadowed by Lou Thesz a 6 time NWA World Heavyweight Champion. 3 of those times it also being reconized in Montreal too as the world champ. The man held the World Title for about 7 years straight. Longer then Backland had held the WWF World title. The reason Thesz lost the title, wasn't even due to a match, it was because of a skiing accident fucked up his ankle. The great match's that he has had all over the world are suppose to be historic and lengendary. Then add in the fact that he is the only wrestler to have wrestled in 7 decades, makes this guy in a lot of older fans eyes the number one guy to be the best Wrestler Ever. I'm gonna vote for Thesz out of a certain respect.........

LIKE I SAID...i will wait to vote and think this out..with so many athletes in the tourney, some brackets are a no brainer, while others matchup quality guys from different eras and different feds..definitely a tough one in the first round for these two guys.

Thesz for sure. i mean, how do you compare these 2? How do you compare anyone to Thesz? But really, I think it was a lot harder for Thesz to do all the things he did, when he did it, than for Storm to come out and fuck himself up. Which is something imo, is all a lot of supposedly "Hardcore" guys do.
