Votes all the open.

The Crusher vs Mad Dog Vachon feud started in the mid 60s over the AWA Title. This feud eventually morphed into Crusher & Bruiser vs Mad Dog & Butcher. Crusher was "injured" in a match where the Vachons beat Bruiser & Crusher for the AWA Tag Team Title. Crusher eventually made his return defeating Mad Dog in a Cage Match that reportedly set an indoor attendance record in Milwaukee.

Dick The Bruiser and Baron Von Raschke feuded over the WWA Indianapolis title during the early 70s. This was not the comedy figure Baron many of you saw later in his career. Baron's claw hold often drew blood and he was the most hated figure in the territory. The feud culminated in a series of German Gestapo matches (fancy name for Coward Waves The Flag Matches) throughout the WWA territory.

Something not many would know about Brusier vs. Raschke is that they had a match as tag partners in later 1980-81-ish in Chicago. Raschke was the hottest face in the AWA at the time, and he still ended up turning on Bruiser, re-igniting their feud breifly, at least in the Chicago/Indy area.

Having said that, I still have to vote for Crusher vs. Vachon. Film Footage of the two going at it in a tag match (Crusher/Carpentier vs. Vachons) in Quebec from 1972-73 ish surfaced a little while ago, marking only the second available confrontation between the two on video...and the only match where they wrestle to make tape. Damn shame.

This should really be a regional final as they were, arguably, the two hottest regional feuds ever run.  Bruiser - Von Raschke never really got beyond Chicago/Indianapolis while Crusher/Vachon played around the horn in the AWA proper for the better part of three years.

All that having been said - Crusher v Mad Dog in a walk.

Have to vote for The Crusher vs. Mad Dog Vachon since that is the feud, out of the two presented, that I've heard/read about the most.

Actually I know virtually nothing about The Bruiser vs. Baron Von Raschke feud in the WWA to tell you the truth.
