    It's back, everyone's favourite pick and click series returns with a Radical edition. It's quite simple, you just vote for your favorite member of this ground breaking crew and slap up a line or two as to why you chose who you chose. Could be cool to get some discussion going. Did they all reach their potential? Were any under utilised? Would you maybe have liked to see someone else debut with them? Vote away folks and we'll see who comes out on top.

    I went for Malenko. When they first went in, Benoit had the greatest impact no doubt but Ive soured on him for obvious reasons. Malenko was always great to watch in the ring for me and since most will vote for Benoit and Eddy (whos injury hurt his initial push),Ill give the Iceman the nod as hes one of my personal favs.

    Also went for Malenko and yet despite that I would expect Eddie to win out here

    I went for Eddie. I'm mostly familiar with Malenko and Saturn from their WWE/F work, which wasn't always the greatest stuff on the show. Benoit was great, but Guerrero had everything. He had the skills, he had the charisma, and he was able to connect with the audience in a way that I don't think any of the other Radicalz could quite manage.

    Chris Benoit. I used to watch Nitro from time to time and he was one of the standouts for me when I used to see him with The Four Horsemen. When he came to WWF I loved his series with Kurt Angle. I am a huge Bret Hart mark and he reminded me a bit of his style too.

    I've gone for Eddie. Whether heel or face I loved what he brought to the gimmick, was great in-ring, hard-working and rising to the top of WWF/E is/was a great story. He also great matches with almost everybody he faced.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    If you've ever seen Perry Saturn as one half of the Eliminators (with OSW demi-god Kronus) you'll know that the version we got in WWE was nothing compared to what it could have been. He used to hit sick legsweeps, moonsaults, the works, not to mention this mental spot from a scaffold...

    He went to WCW and put on a good bit of muscle and start perfecting Greco-Roman throws and suplexes to beat the band. He was good there too.




    I feel he got a little too muscular though and it took away a lot of his aerial stuff by the time he landed in Vinceland, which was a shame. Vastly underrated.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,166 ✭✭✭Stereomaniac


    Yeah I definitely felt that it was a different incarnation of Perry Saturn when he got to WWF. He was in the Flock at one stage in WCW wasn't he? That was my lasting memory of him. It seemed to me like he was always portrayed as a bit of a screwball and hadn't a hope of being taken seriously after a while. Typical Vince, only taking half of any team seriously.

    I picked Benoit , what he did in his personal life is awful obviously but I always judge them by the character not the man

    Loved Benoit and Eddie but I feel Benoit had to work so much harder for his success where as Eddie was kind of easy to love him because he was a really charismatic and funny guy anyway , Benoit broke his balls to get to the top of the WWE and even when he did his title was taken off him in a whim because Vince didn't want Brock to be the youngest WWE champion

    Malenko was awesome but I didn't really discover his non WWE stuff till years later , Saturn was the weak link of the bunch for me especially in the wwe , I don't know where they were going with the whole moppy thing it was so stupid ...even by WWE standards

    That was a puinshment gimmick for him hammering the life out of a jobber where the jobber dropped Saturn on his head.

    Eddie for me. He could do it all in the ring, and had charisma by the bucketload.

    Benoit was brilliant technically, and great to watch too. But Eddie edges it for me


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,846 ✭✭✭Moneymaker


    I liked all of them. All were great wrestlers, but Eddie had more charisma and personality then the other 3 put together.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Eddie is way out in front with a whopping 60% lead. His charisma obviously being a major factor. If you didn't really know who they were on their debut on Raw, who initially excited you most or you thought ''yeah, that guy could be good''?


  • Registered Users Posts: 85,974 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Eddie steals it over Benoit for me, so much charisma


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    I voted Eddie. Fully expected him to win and he is. Personal opinion on all 4 are :

    Eddie ; One of the most charismatic wrestlers of the last 30 years. Whether heel or face he got a reaction and was always capable of stealing the show when jerking the curtain, filling out the mid-card or being the main event.

    Saturn ; I love Saturn. I loved his WcW run with the Flock the resultant feud with the Flock then his team with Raven in early 99 is so underrated its criminal. I wish WWE had made Saturn and Raven a full time tag team in 00-02. As already mentioned his Eliminators team with Kronus was great and the moves he could do in ECW were jaw dropping. Also the best flying elbow in the business by somebody not named Randy Savage.

    Malenko ; Great to watch in the weekly workrate matches on Nitro. Whether as Cruiser or US or Tag champ he always delivered. His ECW is overrated in my opinion. Tag team with ****** while in the Horsemen was some of his best work. Also his WWE "James Bond" run was brilliant while it lasted.

    ****** ; Anything he did in the ring is in my opinion negated by what happened.
