So California and Texas are the two teams I was talking about! Holy Crap! We'll get to them in a second. But as a whole, we have a lot of Very Good potential Match-ups here. We finally would get Austin vs. Hogan! Or Sting vs. the Undertaker! But how about a Daniel Bryan vs. Harley Race match? Ken Shamrock vs. Butch Reed, Baron Corbin vs. Booker T, Rey Mysterio vs. Darby Allin all possibilities as well. And you can take your pick pairing up Randy Orton with any one of the guys in this Pool!
Picking a Winner out of California and Texas is tough. But the nod is going to go with Texas. Ronda Rousey will get them a win. For the sake of avoiding an argument, let's say that Hogan and Sting against Austin and Undertaker are going to cancel themselves out, so 1 Win a Piece there. This puts this Pool on Mysterio and Shamrock's backs to get it done against Michaels and Booker T, and I can't see that happening. This is as close as you can get!
PICK: TEXAS (Austin, Undertaker, Michaels, Booker T, Jacqueline)
