A great and tough match up. Here you have two of the greatest international superstars. Both with tremendous abilty inside of the ring. Their wrestling is so great it speaks for it self. In a wolrd where gimmicks where a must, these two's gimmicks unfolded in the ring. Malenko to me is gold, I will continue to say it too. Because the man was imo the best wrestler in the later years of my life. Malenko is a wrestler who can wrestle all five styles of wrestling and not look out of place for even a minute. Ligar the same to an extent. But I look at Dean and I think that Globally Dean my be the better wrestler. And I say that knowing that Liger's resume is ill in itself. However the one thing that I remember about Liger is that he is a great Cruiserweght. Quite possiably the best ever. And then I think about how Dean may not have been better then him as a cruiserweight. But Dean was about 2 times better then Liger as a heavyweight. While Liger has many credits to his name he doesn't have anything that says heavyweight in his stock pile. Dean on the other hand has many things he has done not only as a Cruiserweight but as a Heavyweight also. Now if this was simple and Dean only wrestled one style then I might have a difference in opinion, but that isn't the case and While is good at one side of wrestling, Malenko is good at both and always displayed it will. When he was the Shooter he was on top of his game. As the IceMan he showed that he wasn't gonna be anywhere near a shadow of his fathers, and the man could make jus about anyone look good. I cite you to Lash Louroux lol.

Malenko gets this one, but this is diffenently the hardest guy for me to vote against when it came to Dean so far. Cause Liger to me is also one of the greatest ever

how can it be a tough one for someone who hadn't heard of Liger untill he read Dre's post?

Btw, Dre, Malenko was never in the heavyweight division, unless you call random odd matches being in the heavyweight division. Malenko was, is, and always will be a junior.

Liger = best junior, ever.

Malenko = very solid wrestlers, but no where near the best.

O, I'm sorry Jimbo, I just asummed when Malenko was the Wolrd Heavyweight Television Champion and the World Heavyweight Tag team champion in ECW on several occasions that he was wrestling as a heavyweight, since he ws holding a heavyweight title, and wrestling Heavyweights. I also assumed then that he was a Heavyweight when he was the US Champion in WCW and was defending his title against Heavyweights the same with WCW World Tag champ.

But hey what do I know lol..............

Malenko is both a Heavyweight and Cruiserweight wrestler. Something Liger can not say like I said before. Liger doesn't have one title that reads Heavyweight on his resume. Malenko has four. I think its pretty safe to say what I said earlier ya dig..................

Okay, if you want to get picky....


First of all, those werne't the Heavyweight belts in ECW because there were no heavyweight/cruiserweight belts in ECW, period. And whom may I ask, was that big of a guy that he wrestle seriously for that TV title anyway? Nobody was.

Secondly, just because you wrestle a heavyweight now and then, doesn't make you a heavyweight wrestler. Rey Mysterio has wrestled Brock Lesnar a couple of times, but you wouldn't consider him a heavyweight wresetler, would you?

If you want to get picky, anything in wrestling that isn't label Cruiserweight, Light HeavyWeight, Jr Weight or Middle Heavyweight. Automatically makes it a heavyweight title. Rey Myterio is a wrestler who wrestled the occasional heavyweight. Malenko was a Heavyweight champion. Its that simple. If nothing more then in WCW, but in ECW he was wrestling Heavyweight competitors as well. I don't care what you want to believe the man was able to wrestle more then the occasional Heavyweight match. Same with Eddy and same with Benoit and Jericho while were on this subject..........

I know, but Liger is a better wrestler than Stink-o-Malenko overall anyway-- heavyweight and cruiserweight.

Titles mean nothing when it comes to who is the BETTER WRESTLER. Now, as for more SUCCESSFUL wrestler, you could be right, but that's still debateble.

Thats where i disagree. The more successful wrestler is Liger, the better wrestler is Malenko. That isn't even a question. Stink-o-Malenko huh. One of those peeps

I've only seen and Heard a Little bit of Liger, But Have watched Malenko perform. So Despite all i have heard about Liger, The choice is Clear, i Voted For Malenko.
