The new Toywiz poll is up on the homepage, and let me tell you, it is a doozy.
The question is who would win in a fight, assuming all the participants are in their prime.
The five choices are Bruce Lee, Brock Lesnar, Chuck Norris, Shaq and Mike Tyson. Seems like an easy choice at first, but let's dig a little deeper.
As I write this, Bruce Lee is far and away in the lead. That's all well and good, but let's not count out the other participants just yet.
Brock Lesnar was the first name thrown out there when the idea for the poll question came up. There is no doubt that they guy is an absolute beast. From Football to the WWE to UFC, there is nothing this guy has not done. Some people think he is on steroids, but through all of his careers, he has never failed a drug test. Until he does, speculation should be squashed.
Next up was Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee was an martial artist who transcended the genre and has continued to be treated like a rock star, many years after his death. He would be able to beat the other contestants with ease, despite being of a smaller stature.
Next up was Chuck Norris. Some of us might remember Chuck Norris from his Walker, Texas Ranger days, when he was not exactly a fighter, but rather somewhat of a family friendly guy, who just happened to fight crime on the side. What is certain is that Walker, Texas Ranger was not what earned him his reputation, as well as the multiple websites that extol his virtues as the ultimate world beater. Norris is no lightweight.
Next up, was Shaquille O' Neal. Shaq has excelled on the court, and is a surefire hall-of-famer once he retires.
But what is unclear, other than the fictional fighting skills that he showed off in Shaq Fu (a game that badly needs to be put on the new generation gaming systems.)
Finally, and most surprisingly in terms of output so far, is Mike Tyson.
Few people seem to remember Mike Tyson from his heyday, and most people now think of him as the crazy guy who ended up in jail and can now be seen in trailers for the sure to be smash-hit "The Hangover."
Now, for my money, I wouldn't bet against Bruce Lee. The fact that he is half the size of some of the other competitors and would surely be able to take them out is a true testament to his powers. The poll will be up for two weeks, so make sure to vote!!
