Tomorrow you will know what voters think, but with only those two choices, who is the greatest?

Both in a class by themselves. Neither trounces the other. But Flair.

Who will win? Flair.

 

Who I think is better? ...still Flair.

A tie wouldn't upset me at all.

 

But the answer to the original question is Flair. Per usual, it won't be a clean victory for Flair, he'll use the ropes to secure the pinfall, but it will be a victory, nonetheless.

Flair will be number one but I had Funk on top with Ric at number two.

Funk's better, cooler, and just gives me all the more positive feels.

Funk in 2010s would go around bashing whatever fella got in front of him on indies.

 

Flair would hold indies up for money.

 

For Funk Forever.

Terry Funk had that "Great Texan" album in Japan and for that album, and the track "Roppongi", alone he should finish number one. But it will be Flair.

I could see having Funk higher if we had a good accounting of his NWA title run. But based on what we have, I voted Flair higher and easily. Terry's highs in the late '70s and '80s were remarkable and demonstrated remarkable range. But a lot of those years are thin on volume. And I'm just not a big enough fan of old man Terry for his '90s work to negate Flair's mass of peak quality.

Funk was way more versatile and managed to keep changing to keep himself relevant in lots of different places in lots of different eras.

 

I don't see any way Flair could have gone to ECW and had the same kind of run that Funk managed to have there. Flair didn't even do that great of a job at adapting to WWF in his first run and that didn't require nearly as much of a change.

I believe Funk is better, but I also think Flair will win.  The winner won easily as Steven revealed early on.  I just can't see Terry winning easily.

I'm kind of surprised Flair only missed three ballots and that three ballots didn't have Terry Funk. I mean we've seen folks share their issues with Flair but I don't remember anyone ever doing that with Funk aside from the context of him being the GOAT.

I was going to predict a Broadway where Grimmas reveals the result at 12:00 Midnight tomorrow while we all get overly anxious as anticipation and drama mounts over the course of the day.... but if one of them won easily, I think it probably has to be Flair.

I think Flair is better at being "The Nature Boy" than any other wrestler is at portraying a singular character, but Funk is so much more versatile that I have to give him the edge. 

 

Flair will be number one. That is fine. I had both in the top 10. Funk was my number 2.
