The Cageside Seats (CSS) Pro Wrestling Tournament continues today with a match-up pitting number three seed John Cena against number 14 seed Lex Luger.

Cena's rise through the ranks of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) saw him quickly become one of the biggest superstars of all time. His ability to maintain his spot at the top of the promotion, despite his perceived shortcomings as a worker, has been nothing less than impressive. He was a top heel and then a top babyface who currently sits behind only Bob Backlund, Bruno Sammartino and Hulk Hogan in combined days as WWE champion.

Luger, on the other hand, also had a long and illustrious career despite the general perception that he wasn't the best performer between the ropes. His mic skills were lacking but he could cut a promo when called upon. He may not have been doing moonsaults or crossbodies off the middle rope but he could work a strong match with the right opponent. He also had a hell of a look and stayed at or around the top for much of his career.

These two never got the chance to work a match together and maybe that was for the best. But now you can decide who would win between them.
