The Cageside Seats (CSS) Pro Wrestling Tournament continues today with a match-up pitting number two seed Shawn Michaels against number 15 seed Scott Hall.
Quite simply, Michaels is one of the greatest performers in the history of professional wrestling. His work between the ropes was unmatched, as he was the very best of all worlds. He could play high flyer, he could work the mat, and, perhaps most importantly, he adapted his style as necessary so his offense was credible against men much bigger than himself. He was also one hell of a promo and one of the better heels the business has seen.
Hall is well known for having personal troubles that have overshadowed his skills as a wrestler. He rapidly deteriorated throughout his career but when he was on, he was a sight to behold. Combining size with sneaky athleticism and a natural charisma, Hall played "The Bad Guy" to perfection. Unfortunately, his demons got the best of him later on in life and his career has been hurt because of it.
As members of the backstage political power group The Kliq, these two were good friends who worked together countless times throughout their careers. Generally, the matches were great. But who will go over in this one?
