Default GWOAT Round 1: Ultimo Dragon vs. The Honky Tonk Man

it's the dragon who has his move the dragon sleeper used a lot lately even Taker was copying it, the dragon who won several titles at once in the orient against an IC champ that had a rock and roll gimmick.

No contest, Honky was the worst I-C champ ever and could be defined as wrestlecrap if he hadn't been such a hated heel. Vote goes to Ultimo.

HTM is the best IC Champion ever...People filled arenas just to see will he lose the title, they'd actually riot when HTM would get himself dq'ed or counted out to kep the IC strap, the guy was one of the BEST HEELS EVER.

One guy I like the other I have never liked.

Honkey Tonk Man Wayne Ferris was this white idiot who as a kid I never took serious and never liked. So in a way I guess he did his job in being a good heel. Believe it or not HTM wasn't always sportin the Elvis dou. He at one point was part of this tag team known as the Blond Bombers. There HTM and partner Larry Latham w/ Jimmy Hart would win the AWA Southern Tag titles twice and then went on to NWA Mid-South were they won those tag titles 3 times. All pretty short title reigns but non the less I feel I should mention them. Also in 83' HTM became the NWA Alabama Heavyweight Champion. After the loss of that title he went over to Stampede Wrestling in Canada where he became the Honky Tonk Man. There in Stampede Farris would contiue to wrestle in Tag compitition. Partnering with Ron Starr they became 2 time Stampede International Tag Champs. Honky later won that tag title with Cuban Assassign less then 3 weeks later after losing them with Starr. Once his tag career was done in Stampede Honky in 87' appeared in WWF as an Elvis impersonater. With Jimmy Hart by his side he started to get a nice push. At Honky's first Mania which was III he got a win over the Snake Jake Roberts. Then he took Butch Reed spot in the IC title match and faced Ricky Steamboat for the IC title. He won it and held it for over a year. I mean a year with a man called Honkey Tonk Man as the IC champion. Well in 88' Warrior comes through and beats the man for the IC title in like 1 minute literally. I remember the match so clear. I was dumb and marking for the Warrior and he crushed HTM. This would be the last time Honky had a decent push. And the highest point in his career. After the squash by Warrior HTM went on to Team with Grag Valentine to become Rythem and Blues. A 50's type rock tag team with two men who couldn't dance to save their lives. But I believe that it was a pretty good gimmick. Nothing makes some people madder then others acting like fools. Rytham and Blues never really went on to be a huge team and never won any gold. in 94' Honky went of to WCW where he and Johnny B. Badd (marc merrow) had a battle of music. Trust me when I tell those who didn't see this, that they were the lucky ones...Honky returned later to WWF where he took Billy Gunn under his ring and made him a fool to known as Rocka-Billy. This lasted for a little bit until NAO began and then that was the last time that I really saw HTM........

Then you take someone like the Ultimo. Arguablly one of the greatest Jr Wieghts in the history of wrestling. He debute in late 80's but he began his legacy in 90' with his first title victory as the UWA World Middle Weight Champion. He wasn't Ultimo yet and wouldn't be for 2 years but he competed in UWA in a lot of six man battles. BY 92 he was known as the Ultimo Dragon and he was in New Japan. By late 92' Dragon had defeated El Samuri for the IWGP Jr Heavyweight title, he would go on to lose that title to Liger in Jan of 93'. Throught the year Dragon engaged in a fued with Liger and Samuri, Dragon often having a different partner to give him a hand. Dragon's popularity soared and he was heard of thorugh out the world. He soon began going to different feds and wrestling in the Jr Wieght divisions.(I'm getting tired so I'm not gonna go into depth) But Dragon did one of the most amazing things ever in mordern wrestling, when he was the first and only man to hold eight titles at one time. He debute on WCW and started challenging then Cruiserweight Champ Dean Malenko. As the storyline went on Dragon would defeat Malenko and hold 9 titles at the same time. Those titles were: NWA World Middleweight Champion, British Commonwealth Junior Heavyweight Champion, WAR International Junior Heavyweight Champion, IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion, WWF World Light Heavyweight Champion, UWA World Junior Light Heavyweight Champion, WWA World Junior Light Heavyweight Champion, NWA World Welterweight Champion, WCW World Cruiserweight Champion. Simple amazing. The man was a trail blazer in his own right and it was fun to see him in the ring. Just when shit was going good for the dragon he hurt his elbow and was out for a long ass time. He made a comback in Michonoku Pro Wrestling and then made his way to WWE TV where we are able to see.......wait never mind


My pick is Ultimo. Honky Tonk had about literally one year of real good success and his rapp sheet doesn't even hold water to such a great curiserweight as the Dragon.......

Ever? What you don't remember his match's as IC Champ. They all ended in a count-out. Savage was by far the Superior IC Champ.......
