Default GUSCOAT Round 1: "The Natural" Dustin Rhodes vs. Magnum T.A.

Dustin Rhodes followed in his dad's footsteps in capturing the United States Title..Rhodes won the Title on two occasions back to back...yeah that sounds odd but here is the details..on jan. 11, 1993...Rhodes was to face Ricky Steamboat in a match to determine the number one contender...Previously Rick Rude the current champ had become injured and that night was unable to defend his US title...THe belt was stripped from Rude, and the Rhodes/Steamboat match was then a title bout..Rhodes would win that night and keep it until a double pin situation against Rude months later would cause the belt to become vacant..Rhodes would beat rude in august that year to regain the title, and keep it until december before losing to Steve Austin.

Magnum TA had many battles in WCW mostly with Tully Blanchard for the US title..Ta won the belt twice beating Wahoo Mcdaniel in march of 85..he kept it until july when he lost to Blanchard..he would then beat blanchard in november and hold the belt until may of 86...he was stripped of the title for attacking the NWA president...and then lost a tournament final against nikita koloff..Magnum would suffer an accident that would end his wrestling career not too long after.

I'm not an expert here. But I believe that "The Natural" was at his best while the US champ and at his best he was better than Magnum.

as Dre has said on several occasions, Magnum TA was a superior talent that had his career cut way too short due to the accident.....but when I think of NWA/WCW, and I think of the US Title.....I think a lot about the memories of "The Natural".....he's the son of a Dream, and he should move on in this round, IN MY OPINION......the legendary battle with the Blacktop Bully notwithstanding.....

I'm sorry but call me old fasioned but Magnum TA could have been a great one, not sure if he would have been the World Champ, but definitely could have easily been the greatest mid card wrestler of all time had he not had his career cut short...Rhodes was good, and this was a hard choice to pick, but in a toss up , Magnum gets my vote.
