In the first of our Modern vs Classic match ups, we have Dolph Ziggler, possibly the most flamboyant wrestler in his time vs Rick Rude, possibly the most flamboyant wrestler in his time.

You won't find much wrestlers that have better workrate than both Cesaro and Mr. Perfect. Hell, it's no surprise that they do not think the other is a better than themselves and who could blame them? Well, tonight they get to the chance to prove that they are better than the other in the 2nd Modern vs Classic match up and the only non-championship match on the championship card. This could realistically steal the show and this show has Angle-Bret and Bryan-Nakamura so you will get your money's worth here.

Re: THE NOT SO NEW YEAR SNAKE DRAFT! HOLLYWOOD QUARTERFINAL MATCH #3: RATMAN VS YODA

TAT has the strongest card in the whole of the QFs, and I'm not sure it's even close.

There's a couple matches I'd skip through, but everything else is, at bare minimum, inoffensive. Brotherhood/Hooliganz and Cesaro/Hennig might be sleeper matches to watch out for, if this card really happened, but there's no denying the win is hinging on this being a two match card. But those two matches are holy fuck level good.



Nakamura/Bryan :mark:
Aries/Rey :zayn3

@Yoda You almost lost me at the start when I saw that Bryan vs Nakamura was a main event, however you more than made up for it with the Bret Hart vs Kurt Angle iron man match.
@Ratman Michaels vs Steamboat and Sting vs Undertaker are wicked but I think I gotta give the nod to the boss here.

Yeah I kinda wanted to split it into two and make them as important as each other. :eek:

Anyway, this is a vote for me yes? Because you have Ratman in the polls. :woo

2 REALLY strong cards here.

TAT's top of the card matches are ones I would just slightly want to see more, so my vote has to go to him, but I wish I could vote for both cards.

Re: THE NOT SO NEW YEAR SNAKE DRAFT! HOLLYWOOD QUARTERFINAL MATCH #3: RATMAN VS YODA

What we have here are two of the best cards in round 1 and probably my favourite matchup. There isn't really anything I would've done differently for either of you.

Ratman's tag opener is blistering, the matches all make sense throughout. Prime Sting / Taker is a dream. Truly solid all around.

Same applies to Flay's card. A nice mix of matches and the pairings make a lot of sense. That said, Bryan / Nakamura and Angle / Hart give the show two epic peaks that I believe nudges his card jusssst past Ratman's entry. Hell of a showdown, and a hell of a tough decision.

Ratman's tag match would be interesting to see, but honestly Taker/Sting no longer interests me. It really, really doesn't. I would have used them elsewhere. Goldberg/Rusev sounds like a squash.

Yoda has Bryan/Nakamura, Bret/Angle, Cesaro/Perfect, and Ziggler/Rude. :eek:bama4

Yoda wins.

I gotta give the nod to TAT here, because we both thought of Bryan/Nakamura and great minds think alike.

Flay's card has a ton of excellent matches whereas Taker/Sting and HBK/Steamboat are the only ones on Ratman's that pique my interest. He gets my begrudged vote. Fuck Bobby Lashley.

TAT gets the vote here. I already read above comments, not sure what to add. I almost voted Ratman out of annoyance at that match between beckie and ivelisse (you have those two on your card and your thoughts go bra and panty match? :eek:ut) but the rest of the card is just too damn good to not give the nod.

Re: THE NOT SO NEW YEAR SNAKE DRAFT! HOLLYWOOD QUARTERFINAL MATCH #3: RATMAN VS YODA

I'm pretty sure Ratman has done Sting/Taker before. :jericho2 I wouldn't vote against it if I saw it from someone else in a past draft but I do recall it on his card in a past snake draft, so it kinda hurts the creativity IMO.

Either way though, I don't think anyone could stand up to TAT's card and win, except maybe Zombo because he has a great pick of wrestlers too - from an objective standpoint. From my personal standpoint, I don't care about many of those matches, but the Cesaro/Perfect and Rey/Aries matches tip the scale for me, despite HBK/Steamboat being a great match to see, it being for a mid-card title is a bit disappointing, and Edge/Wyatt is something I'd prefer to never see, ever.

Re: THE NOT SO NEW YEAR SNAKE DRAFT! HOLLYWOOD QUARTERFINAL MATCH #3: RATMAN VS YODA

Tat has two very good main events but I don't really care for Daniel Bryan so that loses a few points and Ratman has two dream matches that I think anyone would love in HBK vs. Steamboat and Sting and Taker. It was really really close but I just can't see myself enjoying any match that Bryan is in (not even Nakamura and his Awesomeness could save it) so that makes the difference. My vote goes to Ratman.

Two strong cards, Taker/Sting is a dream match and HBK/Steamboat would be excellent. Gotta go with Yoda for a stacked card, well thought out storylines, and a pro presentation.

Ratman gets the very slight edge here due to Steamboat vs. HBK.
