    Which rivalry was better: Stone Cold Steve Austin-The Rock or HHH-Shawn Michaels?

    Sorry I've been slacking lately on these polls guys, but I've had to deal with a wide variety of BS lately and I was forced to take a bit of a hiatus. I want to get these final two rivalries in to get the tournament going again, but I haven't done the proper research on either of the rivalries to do them justice, so the long write ups will come tomorrow.
    WWE resigned Punk, and everything I've said has come true on these things, so WWE, keep Punk a badass face. He will become a legend if you do.

    This plus the fact that HBK and HHH hating each other never seemed believeable to me because you knew they were best buds outside of the ring

    I'm going for HBK vs HHH. Even though it wasn't believable to think they hated each other, I was able to put that aside. It was a great rivalry that produced very good matches so I'll go for that one.

    Summerslam 2002. HBK's return match with HHH was great, as were the majority of their matches, but not great enough to win this. Even putting their real life friendship aside and looking at it strictly in a kayfabed way, I'd still go with the Attitude era Gods that were Austin and The Rock.

    I have to say, there cannot be a bad word said about both of these rivalries. They are all solid performers that helped to build the WWE into a wrestling juggernaut. However, the fact that Trips and HBK were best friends in real life kind of ruined the illusion of their hate for each other in the feud. I always preffered The Rocks and Stone Colds matches to Trips and HBKS bouts too. The Rock and Stone Cold revolutionized wrestling, and were the key figures in the Attitude Era. It was because of them that I started to like wrestling again, and have been a fan ever since. So for me, this one goes to Triple H-HBK.

    Lol Brownie. I'm sure everyone knew what you meant in your comment, but it was still funny to me. My full thoughts on this match-up will come later on today, because right now it's about 3:15 am in the States on the East Coast and I need to get some sleep before I start f'n up what i want to say.

    Hey everybody, sorry again for the delay, but I hope you guys still get a chance to read this before the polls ends. IN this match-up we got THE rivalry from the very popular Attitude Era going up against a very popular rivalry from the Entertainment Era. Both of these rivalries were pretty evenly matched, as is both had really good wrestling and really good promos. To address some of the comments on this match-up, I don't find an issue with them being friends outside of the ring, but I have an innate ability to suspend reality when I'm watching my wrestling, so I can see how that could put off some people honestly. Well anyway, lets get right into some cool videos.

    Here is w/o a doubt the coolest video package from a match I've ever seen. i know pretty much everyone has seen this one already, but it's worth another look to say the least:



    Here is what I believe to be the best match from the Michaels/Haitch feud: SummerSlam '02:





    My opinion:

    Wrestling edge: HBK vs HHH. I haven't really made it a secrete around here that SCSA and Rocky
    aint exactly my favorite two in-ring competitors in the world, and although I will admit that they tend to work with one another very well, I still gotta go with HHH and HBK.

    Promo edge: SCSA vs Rock. This one was tricky, as you have four of the best talkers of all time, but at the end of the day, I think SCSA and the Rock were given more to work with. Plus I like the fact that they could both play either heel or face well.

    Longevity: SCSA vs Rock. Trips and HBK went for a while too, but I don't think they could match 6 or 7 years that Stone Cold and Rock went off and on for.

    "Holy Shit" moments. Tie. Both had great spots honestly, but almost all of them came in the promos and not the matches. Too close to call for me.

    Impact: SCSA vs. Rock. No contest here. This feud apexed what some believe to be the best era in all of professional wrestling. The money and ratings this feud brought in were both out of this world.

    Overall: SCSA vs. Rock. Pretty easy for me actually. The impact that these guys made on the industry was too much to conquer for HHH/HBK
    WWE resigned Punk, and everything I've said has come true on these things, so WWE, keep Punk a badass face. He will become a legend if you do.
