The Cageside Seats (CSS) Pro Wrestling Tournament continues today with a first round match-up pitting number five seed Ted DiBiase against number 12 seed Tully Blanchard.

"The Million Dollar Man" is unquestionably one of the greatest characters/gimmicks in the history of the business and DiBiase played it to perfection. His skits conning people out of money were some of the very best (was there anything better than that trademark evil laugh?) and he backed it all up once he got in the ring. In fact, he's widely regarded as one of the best to never win the title during his time with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF).

Blanchard was one of the original members of the Four Horsemen, a super group if there ever was one. Throughout his career, which spanned all the major pro wrestling promotions, he racked up quite a few championships and awards. And while he may not have been a top of the line talent, he had many a memorable feud with the likes of Dusty Rhodes and Magnum T.A.

No memorable feud between these two, though the matches would have been incredible. Who would have gone over? That's what you're here to decide, Cagesiders.
