    Another straightforward one here. Michaels is a much better wrestler with a deeper resume of great matches.

    Cody has been a tag wrestler, a midcarder and a main event wrestler. Michaels was better in each of those roles than Cody.

    A GOAT, an all time legend, a man of the people against Shawn Michaels. It's a toughy.

    All joking aside. Cody hasn't got a leg to stand on. I think I can count on one hand how many great matches Cody has. Michaels has a wider body of great matches in both tags and singles matches. And over a 20 year period. Easy pick.

    Cody has started to grow on me alot as of the last couple of years to the point I'm somewhat a fan.

    But, yeah, HBK is GOAT.

    I was really struggling to think of a legit great Cody match outside Double Or Nothing or the Battleground tag.


    I like the guy but those years in New Japan and the indys badly exposed him.

    Started to enjoy Cody again since the launch of AEW but this is easy. HBK is the GOAT. Get's my vote all day, errryyyy daayyyy!

    I think Cody is great. He’s not Shawn Michaels though.

    100% agree with this

    He’s starting to look better but there was nothing good about his NJPW run and his run on the indies. I nommed him to fill a hole and if this was the greatest wrestling marketers of all time Cody would be a front runner for sure.

    Yeah. This one is pretty lopsided. Voting for HBK obviously, but I do feel like I should give Cody props because he had some solid matches in the WWE midcard over the years. His feud with Rey that gave us two awesome matches at WrestleMania XXVII and Extreme Rules, the street fight with Orton on Smackdown, the Legacy vs. DX matches and basically all the tags with in 2013 were dope. I didn't watch a lot of his ROH and NJPW run, as I was mostly just watching stuff that I heard hype for. But, I liked his match with Okada a lot, and there were some good Elite multi-mans I can recall. I don't know how many people watched his match against Aldis at the NWA 70th Anniversary Show, but it was also damn good. Now he's been the standout performer in AEW so far, so he's continuing to prove his quality. He stands no chance in this match-up because Shawn is Shawn. But against some of the lower seeds in this, he might have had a fighting chance.

    I'll save my Michaels defence for another day.

    Cody has in the last year turned into someone I enjoy as a singles wrestler, the only previous time I could say that was his 2011 deformed Cody Rhodes run. I do put a bit of that down to he has full control on his booking now so he's always booked in something important and juicy and he can lean on the adoration he has from the AEW fans. Steve was right, his indie and NJPW runs stunk. This is another easy first round match.

    As much as I enjoy Cody, he isn't a patch on HBK sadly.
    I have a plan so cunning......

    It's an unfortunate draw for Cody, but the choice is obvious and should be unanimous across the board.

    Absolutely an unfortunate draw, Cody is definitely a good wrestler but Michaels is the obvious choice here as you said.

    Even I will vote for HBK here but in Cody's defense he did get the hotter wife.
