Build a Wrestling Company: DDP vs. Bob Backlund

Who doesn't like to fantasy draft a wrestling company? Cageside Seats will build their own, with a twist. Using Cageside Seats' Greatest All-Time Wrestler bracket, today is our seventh pick!

Welcome back Cagesiders!

This time around we will be using the cSs Greatest Wrestler of All-Time Tournament bracket. Couple changes when it comes to the match-ups and how to vote:

• Match-ups will be based off seeding from the bracket linked above. Example: #1 Hulk Hogan vs. #1 Ric Flair
• We start at #16 and work towards the #1 seeds; we're trying to build excitement here!
• When voting, you will base it on their prime years. We won't concern ourselves with how they ended up or their career in totality, just focus on when they were at their best. Example: Steve Austin from 1996-1999.
• Some wrestlers have multiple peaks (Michaels/Hogan), its open for you to decide which peak to use and compare it against their opponent. I didn't want to pick a specific era; it just makes you Cagesiders grumpy rule-breakers.

Pick: #13 DDP or #13 Bob Backlund - Note: Only consider their peak year(s), not their career in total.


If this is your first read through, here's the deal.

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.

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