    I clearly love both Main Events , both guys put their best foot forward there and it would be impossible for me to choose either considering each one features one of my favorite two wrestlers in history.

    I love the idea of Farooq and Ahmed teaming against LOD and Hansen vs Valentine would be a slobberknocker , the rest of Icon's card doesn't do a whole lot for me though aside from the fun opener I don't know how many times I'd be checking my phone. Again it's more of just a personal taste thing.

    Raven's card seems a little off to me , not sure why either but I love many of the guys he is bringing to the table. Perhaps it's just me and it's weird but I've never though of Bulldog and Seth having a match - I think it could work though.

    I love the idea of Raven doing the intergender fatar fourway - gives his card a bit of uniqueness compared to the rest of the bunch.

    It's really almost a coin flip here for me - both guys have things I love and don't care for. Both guys have unfamiliar faces.


    I think I've going to vote for Icon because he might have the 3rd and 4th most intriguing match for me.

    This honestly felt like one of the easier match-ups so far. Austin/Goldberg is always gonna be hard to beat, and Punk/Flair doesn't even remotely touch it for me. Then, going down the rest of each card, Icon's strengths stick out to me against Raven*'s weaknesses. I hate arbitrary Iron Man matches (even, if not moreso, the 30-minute variety) more than clusterfuck 4-ways. I dig the creativity of Icon trying to give us one of PW HoW's favorite dream stables in the Extreme Nation, and overall the other matches going down the line seemed to fit and make much more sense than Raven*'s.

    Very close match. What sealed my vote was the powerhouse duo of Goldberg vs Austin and Kobashi vs Hashimoto. Raven* has the more consistent card, but he has a card full of 5/10 and 6/10 matches (and a poor use of Misawa) while The Icon has a few 8-9/10 matches and a couple of duds. I guess what I'm saying is I'd be more willing to see the card with some amazing dream matches at the expense of sitting through some potential rubbish than watching a wrestling show that doesn't get above average very often.

    Icon's card doesn't have too much variation in style. There will be a lot of stiffness and bombs being thrown, but that's cool with me. Austin/Goldberg is obviously an elite main event. Uber dream match. Nigh-on unmissable. Add Hash/Kobashi, which could be an absolute classic, to that and this is an incredibly tough card to beat. Hansen/Hammer and Onita/Tanaka would likely be lots of fun as well.

    For Raven*, Flair/Punk could be very good and I like the idea of asskicker Asuka coming up against a monster like Kong. But it still isn't close to matching Austin/Goldberg and Hash/Kobashi and then I see Mitsuharu Misawa being stuck with Bray Wyatt for some reason and even more bafflingly the match being a 30-minute Iron Man match. Nothing about that appeals to me. Well, unless Bray does his spider walk and Misawa just elbows him right in the face and then again and again and again until the ref calls him off and Wyatt just lies in a pool of blood for the next 15 minutes while a disgruntled-looking Misawa waits for the time to run out.

    Holy shit Somehow you've made that match more entertaining than I could have ever imagined.

    I like Icon's top three matches and he also gets a bonus point for drafting Ludvig Borga. I always thought Simmons & Ahmed should have formed a regular tag team.

    Like Raven's main event and would actually be very intrigued by Misawa/Wyatt if it wasn't for the Ironman stip.

    Icon gets my vote for having the more intriguing main event and more overall matches I'd like to see.

    It seems we are calling these now. I'm going to steal Ric Flair and Mitsuharu Misawa.
