Build a Wrestling Company: Eric Bischoff vs. Vince McMahon

Who doesn't like to fantasy draft a wrestling company? Cageside Seats will build their own, with a twist. Using the 1998 WCW and WWE rosters, today is the thirty-fifth, and final pick!

Welcome back, Cagesiders!

If this is your first read through, here's the deal. We will start with wrestlers; main-event guys first, and work our way down the card. Then we will move onto announcers, authority figures, etc.

I will try my best to pick equally talented wrestlers and you guys will pick only one for Cageside Seats Wrestling. (cSsW).

Each vote will run for about a day, and whoever wins is our guy. Whoever loses will be our competition! I will keep track of both lineups and update it each article. Over the next few weeks, we will see how good or bad a company we can build as a community.

When picking, consider everything, not just promos and in-ring work, but media work, merchandise, potential, age, and name recognition, just to name a few. Remember we are starting from the ground up!

So make your pick in the poll, and explain your choice in the comments!

Pick: Eric Bischoff or Vince McMahon (Head Booker) - Note: When deciding, think of these wrestlers around 1998 (if possible). Try not to use hindsight
