    Re: ROUND 3: Ric Flair vs Chris Hero

    I don't know if I'd vote anyone over Flair.

    Hero is great, certainly one of the better wrestlers of the last 20 years but I think Flair has him beat on peak (by a lot) and longevity.

    I feel the same way. Flair is on the short list for potential winners so the only way I can see myself possibly voting someone over him is when he goes up another potential winner. Hero's great and all, but I doubt anyone on the board predicted him to win the entire tournament.

    There's a couple people I can see me voting over Flair, but Hero isn't one of them even though he isn't a chump. Hero has had spells of being one of the best wrestlers in the world, but not long enough spells to contend with Flair.

    Obviously this is Flair, but interesting comparison. Hero is in many ways a 21st Century Flair - working all different indy promotions ('territories'), often elevating guys to his level, being a guy who wrestles to a formula which works and plugging guys into that match. Different levels of course but Hero ranks high for me for the last 20 years.

    The different time period hurts Hero. During Flair's peak, workrate wasn't overly strong in mainstream US wrestling and basically non-existent outside of mainstream wrestling. During Hero's time, it's pretty common with entire companies built around the gimmick of having the best technical wrestling.

    When Hero mounts a huge comeback and there ends up being a 14-14 tie with both being eliminated, it'll be all your fault.

    Re: ROUND 3: Ric Flair vs Chris Hero

    Hero has had quite a few years where he showed signs of an all time great wrestler but being signed at the worst times for his career without it going anywhere put a stop to it being anything more. Flair's run on top is pretty much unmatched.

    The Ian Rotten match in the OP is fantastic. Well worth watching.
