So it comes down to two of the biggest icons of the 80s, the most popular wrestling star ever, and the most criticially acclaimed performer of the modern era. Not bad.

Assuming the polls hold up, I think these are obvious enough

The 60 minute man (horseman) vs. the Macho Man or Space Mountain vs. Danger Zone

and

HBK vs. SOB or Heartbreak vs. Glass Shatter

.... if somebody already chose these...didn't mean to copy.

Also feeds to the curiosities of matchups we didn't have but would have been interested to see.

I think this is kind of cool. I'm going to do "What If" as what if others in the Elite 8 advanced. I may or may not get bored of doing these sooner or later, though. No promises on how many "rounds" I'll do. Also, I'm pretty sure Rick made this subforum only postable in by myself, but I'm sure that when I'm not posting anything everybody could post polls like these in the regular Retro place for the same purpose.

EDIT: Not pinning these polls, so you'll have to notice them on your own.

Again, giving the post-Raw crowd an opportunity to vote if they haven't. Probably posting the finals Wednesday night/Thursday morning, to coincide with the TNA crowd (which consists of two or three people) voting. Finals will be left up for a little over 2 weeks (original plan was 1 week, but the number of votes coming in after the 1 week mark for the past few rounds changed that). So if all goes as planned, we should reach our conclusion and consensus early Tuesday morning, the 16th, the middle of the month. It will have taken just over 9 months from start to finish.

I posted three alternative finals polls: Michaels/Flair, Flair/Austin, and Austin/Savage. Go look for them.

If ultimate managers showdown happens we might aswell just do Paul Heyman vs Booby Heenan and call it a day.

Include some bitching for James Mitchell losing to Zeb Coulter because of WWE bias and more bitching for some old school legends going against each other in the first round and we've summed up the Ultimate Managers Showdown.

If Cornette doesn't win, I curse you with the heat of a thousand bags of dicks.

Don't forget anger over people who were both managers AND wrestlers beating pure managers.

So...it's been four days since someone last posted in the Shawn/Savage thread and Shawn is up by almost 30 votes. Is it safe to go ahead and shut this thing down and declare ourselves a winner?

We can't have a simple "the winner is Shawn Michaels, yay" post. We need more... ahem... pomp and circumstance.

I wonder if the whole thing was rigged just so you could use that gif?

Seriously, thanks a ton for running this whole thing (again) Matte.

I will talk to Rick about doubling your salary.

Yeah, big kudos to Matte for putting this whole thing together and it's hard to believe that this was basically a nine-month endeavor. Kind of a shame that things seemed to end with a bit of a whimper during the final round, but otherwise this was a ton of fun.

And on a sidenote, given that Shawn Michaels is my all-time favorite, I can't say that him beating out 1,023 other guys didn't put a smile on my face.
