    Really, I pretty much despise Santino. His wrestling is sloppy and predictable and his comedy is barely funny. I'll give him props for a good performance in the SmackDown EC, but I'm going with Young here.

    Santino has been actively good this year. His finale with Bryan in the EC was better than anything Young's done in forever, you know it.

    Despising a midcard comedy wrestler seems pretty nerdy.

    Plus he's actually good, and most importantly over.

    Yeah, it's a good thing he's not on TV every week otherwise I'd get really sick of him and the comedy I find unfunny.

    Wait a minute, you somehow drew these two randomly?

    Indeed. Drawn from the Cena hats of fate. Couldn't believe it when I saw it.

    I think if I saw it in person, I still wouldn't believe it was legit.

    Anyways, as an overall wrestler, Young blows Santino away. However, Santino has been better in 2012 thanks to the Elimination Chamber and just feeling like a big deal. I still find Young entertaining, but he's currently stuck in something that isn't helping him a ton.

    I find Eric Young to be slightly funnier in segments and on the mic, but Santino gave us the Smackdown EC which just impressed me more than anything I've seen in ring from Young this year.

    No way could this have just been drawn randomly . Anyway I gave the Edge to Santino but Young has been awesome as always

    EY has had some truly golden material over the years, but he's stuck in a pretty meh angle with the ODB stuff. Santino's push is making him look good even though I can't stand the cobra used as a legit finisher.

    So I voted Santino by a slim margin.

    I really like both, but I'm leaning towards Santino on this one.

    His performance in the elimination chamber was great, and one of the highlights for me. Eric has been very entertaining as well this year, but again I'm giving the slight edge to Santino.

    I don't think I could watch either one more than a few minutes, but I've gotten more laughs from Santino. Though I do get the impression he tries to way too hard.

    This seems to be the first semi-close contest.

    I got to back my boy Santino in this. Actually quite enjoy watching him this year.

    And he scores goals...!
