Watching Armageddon made me think of this question....
Kane has had a significantly longer wrestling career, more titles (however less wwe/world HW titles), amazing intertwining narrative with the deadman, fanstastic adaptability and switch of characters from big red matchine to corporate Kane. Underrated mic work. Mitb. Also a bit of a jobber from time to time and lost a shit ton feuds.
Batista well and truly got the rocket shoved up his after a forgettable brief period as the Deacon lmao. His character / gimmick was never particularly great just a roided up cocky bastard. However he has multiple world title reigns, was a member of one of the best stables of all time, wrestlemania main eventer, royal rumble winner.
lttle things to think about who had better music, pyro or who had better finisher .
