Hulk Hogan vs Big E
Hulkamania that lifted the WWF in the 80s trumps the Booty O's and the positivity of Big E. The people would be behind Hogan in this match. Hogan is one of the longest reigning champions whereas Big E had the Intercontinental Championship for a short while. Hogan 4-1 vote.

Jeff Hardy vs Roddy Piper
Hardy is the high flying athlete that can battle to an extreme. Hardy proved to be on top as a grand slam champion. However, Tyler disagrees and believes that Piper could eliminate Hardy.
