Fascination is the word of the day!
History beckons the Macho Man!
Back when the title meant something.
Weird, I've never seen that Mountie picture before.
Justice is served
No complaints, easily the best IC Champion. The most talented champion at the time the title meant most.
Yeah, I agree. Early January 1992, the IC title meant the most.
I'm a die-hard Bret mark with no objections to this outcome.
Some guys are just The Man....and Savage is The Man.
Great winner, my only question is what the hell happened to Shawn Michaels?
All that vote spamming, and this is the result.Spamming works!
eliminated when he got beat in a bar fight by a bunch of sailors.
Was Sailor Moon one of them?
He forfeited early on like a real champ.
He looks so unhappy in that picture. :(
Awesome. Now let's have a WWE champion tournament so Savage can win that too. "The spotlight should go on top of me!
Well if Bret had to lose then that's about the best option B that you could ask for.History beckons.
He lost his smile.
Wow be double upped the Hitman. Impressive. Still a little shocked at how Savage smoked Austin but he was still always the winner here easy. Fuck the Mountie. He's Canadian.
But Sid didn't win.
wow bret gets runner-up in both tourneyshe's the 2nd best there is; 2nd best there was and 2nd best there will ever will be
percentage total is 70%-30%
Exactly my feelings.
Here is a question that has boggled my mind for years -- ICW was a group of blackballed wrestlers - what did Ronnie Garvin do to be blackballed?
My Iast pay, check was 9500dlr working l2 hours a week 0nline, My neighb0ur's sister has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 2o hours a week. l can't beIieve how easy it was 0nce l tried it 0ut---------------------------------------------------------Here is I started------ > www．cashtime10．com---------------------------------------------------
Bret/Savage/Perfect could have won and I wouldn't have objected. I personally voted for Perfect throughout but Savage is as good a choice as there could be.
Macho Man lost a ton of non-title matches on free tv when he was IC champ. That's why he is the greatest IC champ of all time.
you know there's a difference between 1/I and o/0
The cream always rises to the top!
I fucked your neighbor's sister and in the words of Goldberg....You're next!
Well it depends on the class of Clientele that you attract as a hooker I suppose.
"With a tear in her eye, Liz said Macho was the better champ but I was the better man...."
He was mean to Bret Hart in the 90's and him and his pals robbed us of what Dean Douglas and Jean Pierre Lafitte could have been.
I don't think anything, specifically. He was one of a group of guys who split off from the Southeastern (Knoxville) promotion after a falling out with the Fullers and jumped to Poffo's new outfit.
What's up with Shamrock getting over 3415 votes in the second round?
Bret Hart is becoming the Buffalo Bills of the BoD polls.
Savage, Razor, Perfect, Shawn and Bret would be my top 5, in whatever order. Honky Tonk Man is interesting because he wasn't a great wrestler and rarely won but his reign was historic for those reasons.
We should have a beloved dead guys tournament. Randy Savage, Warrior, Verne Gagne, Ric Flair....
I don't think he was blackballed. One Man Gang and Pez Whatley were there too and they had plenty of exposure in NWA territories.
Unlike Bret, the guy in charge of the Bills knows how to cut a promo...
Verne is still alive, lol
Rex Ryan has never had a line as good as Bret Hart's dig at Pittsburgh.
This time it was 37 of them.
Nobody writes Rex's material....
WHO ARE YOU TO DOUBT BRET HART?!He's a jam-up guy.
BECAUSE THE CREAM ALWAYS RISES TO THE TOP YEAH
Not for nothing, but did I miss the tag tournament Bronze Medal match? Who won that?Also, good for Savage. Either him, Hart, or Perfect deserved it.The Mountie and Honky Tonk Man can battle each other for fourth.
Boooo! I was going to start ranting about how Bret was screwed, but then I saw how surprisingly decisive the vote count was. Oh screw it, I'll do it anyway--the BoD screwed Bret! I'll blame it on Savage's upcoming HoF induction clouding people's judgment.
Guerrero, Pillman, ECW Zombie
It could be a tournament to decided to greatest wrestler names Hulk Hogan and Bret would make the finals.
Stop the presses! HartKiller puts Bret Hart in a top 5 that's positive.
Someone's never seen 1997.
Well I mean the poll was fixed sooooo
Bret is meh...
Love that version of the belt

"Savage, Razor, Perfect, Shawn and Bret would be my top 5, in whatever order."So you're fine with Bret being #1
My favorite version as well. The red lettering of WWF, and like someone said recently, just the way Savage would hold it.
Looks like someone's missed a lot more than 1997.
I'd put him 3/4. Him and Shawn are a toss up.
I'm screen shotting this comment.
Savage was the obvious choice.
lmao, watching Bash 89 and they blurred out a sign that said NWA #1, WWF Stinks!
Maybe they are not a fan of the rap group
They kept the NWA part unblurred. Just blurred out the WWF part.
I watched Bret from his beginning in WWF and Ive always been unimpressed. Maybe its all the crying and being such a mark for himself...
Haha, I didn't realize the Punk derp's stuck around to spam Shamrock past Shawn. Good for them.
Didn't Bret pin Piper, which was like his only clean WWF loss, have a legendary match with Perfect in '91, and main event Summerslam, all for the IC belt? I know Savage had his incredibly rehearsed WM3 moment with the IC, but those three Bret events I think add up to more than Savage ever did for the title. Plus I recall vivid Savage IWC hate during his WCW run excepting the DDP series and now all of a sudden he's the greatest wrestler who ever lived? Once again the easiest way to dominate a BOD poll is to be dead.
Get back to work. Chloe's opened that socket you asked for.
Who are you working for?!?!
Savage had the deck stacked against him (Angle, HHH, RVD, Austin, Warrior, Bret) in the tournament and still beat each and every one by a significant margin without any apparent outside interference.
Welp, time to get someone on the bidness end of a guitar.
Bret main evented Summerslam because he was facing the Bulldog in England.
History seems to have forgotten the near half-decade where Randy sucked. Completely sucked.
Kevin Dunn finds you tiresome
Charles Logan. Your time has come, Bauer. He sends his regards.
Yet it remembers all that time Bret bored me in that stupid fucking Iron Man match....
I'm aware of that, and Savage went on first.
If Bret wasn't facing the Bulldog in England he's not closing the show though.
Moment of silence for David Palmer, especially in light of this MLK Day.
True. Just pointing it out in a sense of making IC belt feel important.
That NWA is definitely not PG...
All is right with the world.In other news, I just watched the Venture Bros. midnight special. FUCK I missed this show.
Im pretty sure Piper did some jobs at house shows for Flair in the WWF....
Macho as IC champ upstaged the biggest main event in wrestling history, Bret had a bunch of dudes with tears in their eyes praising him in the locker room and jobbed the title away to the fucking Mountie and of course bitched about it....Yeah, I'd say the right guy won and it wasnt close....
He didn't suck during the 414 days he was Intercontinental Champion which is the only period pertinent to this poll.
lmao, reach harder.
So what tournament is next? As morbid as it is, I vote for the dead wrestlers one. Or do a RR winners one, we should easily be able to wrap that up by Sunday.
Would the Rumble winners one be like best winning performance in the rumble or just biggest star to win the Rumble? Should it include how they followed the win at Mania? It's not very interesting if it's just biggest star to win the Rumble because Austin/Rock/or Hogan. But if you factor in other stuff it could be interesting.
Not sure how many winners there's been. This will be, what, the 27th Rumble? So make it a 24 man tourney. Give Hogan, Austin, HBK, and Cena a first round bye because they've won it more than once, and seed Flair #1 in the bottom bracket because he won the title when he won it. Outside of that people can vote for whoever they want, as long as people can only vote once.
That's what I'm thinking. Winning the title at Mania should get a boost from that.
O.k., so Austin as the only 3 time winner gets the #1 seed in the bye round, fuck it, do a coin toss to see which guy gets 2 and 3 between Cena and Shawn for #2 & #3, Hogan gets #4. Flair is #1 in the bottom group, and after that... fuck, I have no idea.
Macho was superior in every way, there is nothing to reach for....
All things considered I think Savage is the GOAT but Bret was by far a better worker. It's ok not like someone, I'm meh about Flair but I still recognize he is one of the greats. Using played out memes to try and prove your point makes you come of as 411ish and makes me not take anything you say seriously.
Wasn't the greates Intercontinental Champion of all time Jeff Jarrett? ;-) I think the biggest surprise is Ken Shamrock beating Shawn Michaels. And where was the British Bulldog?
Best overall Rumble performer? That opens it up for guys like Kane, Reigns, Punk ... and factors in performances by guys like Austin, HHH, Cena, etc., in years where they didn't win.
Congrats Macho Man.
Yep - that's my top 5 as well. I couldn't argue with any of them winning. Shawn's elimination in round 2 was obviously BS from Bret Hart marks but the other four all went far so no real complaints. Personally I'd have gone for Razor but Savage winning is not a bad call at all.
Freak out, Freak out, yeah! What it is, yeah, is what it is! Macho Man wins!
Nobody physically held a belt like Savage.
Mister President /bows head
Don't forget 1994 Diesel!
HISTORY BECKONS THE MACHO MAN!
Using 411ish in 2015 makes me not take anything you say seriously...
Well if thats the case, apparently The Mountie got a TON of credit for not sucking both days he was champion....just imagine if he had held the title a full week!
I don't know that I would use the word "beloved" either there.....
Were guys still stuffing the ballots or are there that many guys that visit here? Didn't think 2,000 people came through.
Should celebrate with a montage of his best out-there promos.
Bulldog could have been winning the belt off The Mountie and it still would have main evented Summerslam '92.Speaking of which, if you ever want to see one of The Mountie's classic performances, Summerslam '92 is one of the best.
Or a Sacred Cows tournament. First bracket:Bret HartCM PunkSteve AustinOwen HartDaniel BryanShawn Michaels
It's funny because he ever WORE the IC belt that much. He usually carried it around his waist.
