Tuff and though some will disagree. I go for Jericho. Backland wrestled for about 10 years in actuality. In those years he was a 2 time champion(not recognized by some). Then I don't remeber shit until he came back later in his career. Where he won the title for a 3rd time(2nd depending on who your talking to.) I just feel that even though Backland has a nice Legacy and I want to vote for him because he was a wrestlers wrestler, Jericho is just as good, with many of the same credidations and marks. So by litterally a pubic hair, Y2J

Jericho is still one of the best wrestlers ever. Although I expected a little more from Backlund, but

Shit this is kinda hard to decide, but both have great wrestling backgrounds as Backlund is amatuer and technical style, and Y2J is a mix of technical and some cruiserweight and a little bit of high flyer style added to it, but Iv'e known Jericho better and longer than Bob plus Y2J IMO's a better entertainer than him so Y2J it is.

I went with Y2J. I know that Backlund is good (better than most in this torney), but I've seen enough from Jericho to impress me. As Kurok said, he is good mix of different styles.

You're probably sitting there wishing you had a pic of my kids so you could Photoshop them onto something because that's all you can really do.

Sure...you can take a run at numbfuck SC or plainjane Josh or complete moron Alex or can't get out of his own way Boston...but I don't agree with you about Barry and it's "Rueben Droughns this" "weed that" "your kids this" "Look at me and my halo over my head that."

Whatever. First of all, you don't have any depth of knowledge about any of that stuff, so you're just talking out of your ass. Secondly, you wouldn't be saying any of that shit if Barry Bonds wasn't some roided up freak who you're in love with.

It's fucking gay. I have better things to do than deal with someone who can't even debate a point, rather changes the subject again and again to deflect the fact that he's dead wrong. It's what dumbass 6th graders do...


I honestly don't give a fuck about your opinion. Like I told Alex, they're just words on a screen. I can't believe you don't get that concept...but okay.

I mean...you're the kind of guy that thinks if you yell louder than the other person, you will win a debate. And that's not new either...I've pretty much thought that about you from day one...

I didn't want to put it that way, but since you want to press on...

Lame dude. Just lame. I have better shit to do. You probably should too...but I'm betting you don't...

Late.

Backlund is a technical MASTER. Also, he's one of the greatest champions in history, while Jericho's reign was laughable. Backlund played the classic, "Boy Next Door, Happy Smiley Good Guy" in the '70's and '80's as he defended his title against EVERYONE, and when he returned in the '90's he turned heel and became one of the most entertaining heels of all time, "Psycho" Bob Backlund, a lunatic who applied Cross-Face Chicken Wings to everyone in sight and spoke with ridiculously big words.


Jericho, on the otherhand, has yet to reach his true potential still. He's had a few bright moments in his career, but his flaws are numerous. Bob Backlund over Jericho, no doubt.
