    Re: ROUND 2: Barry Windham vs Bob Backlund

    I think Backlund being a better worker than Hogan was a straightforward decision. But the stuff I've seen of his aren't what I'd consider to be someone I'd vote for over Barry Windham, who is a really great wrestler.

    I'll keep an open mind and hold off voting if there's anyone that can come up with a good argument for Backlund, but as it stands I can't see it.

    Bob was good longer and his Japan stuff puts him higher in my books too....but Windham at his best was fucking GREAT, better than Bob at his best... this is a tough one. I'll sit on this for a day or so.

    Re: ROUND 2: Barry Windham vs Bob Backlund

    I went with Bob but Windham is a great worker. Both have strong arguments for them but Bob has Japan and also just being in higher profile spots throughout his career on his own. As far as him at his best, Windham hasn't had a match as good as Backlund/Patera so even then I have to go for Bob.

    Re: ROUND 2: Barry Windham vs Bob Backlund

    Yeah I'm going with Backlund too. There is very little of Bob Backlund that I don't love. Barry Windham has his peaks but there is a ton of nothing in his career too.

    Re: ROUND 2: Barry Windham vs Bob Backlund

    It's a close call, but going with Barry. Bob has the longevity, but Barry at his best was having great matches on a much more regular and consistent basis. You could argue he had better opponents than Bob, but I think Barry's individual performances for consistently better on a show to show level.
