It’s time to name the most iconic pro wrestler of all-time.

The field of 32 has been whittled down to 2. “The Texas Rattlesnake” Stone Cold Steve Austin got here by defeating CM Punk, John Cena, The Rock and Macho Man Randy Savage. “Nature Boy” Ric Flair got here by toppling Jerry Lawler, Eddie Guerrero, arch-rival Dusty Rhodes and Rey Mysterio Jr.

Now, it’s up to you. Cast your vote below, and let us know who you voted for. Tell us why. Argue. Blame it on referee Tommy Young. Have your opinion decided by which guy’s better at driving a camouflage ATV. Whatever it takes.

1. Ric Flair

WOO! Flair’s blurb should just be one long, sustained WOO. The most hip-hop character in wrestling history, The Nature Boy is a legendary 16-time Champion who has walked that aisle and styled and profiled for five decades. The ultimate wrestling bad guy. The leader of the Four Horsemen, a 2-time WWE Hall of Famer, and so good he could wrestle a broomstick to a four star match. His run from Ricky Steamboat in 1989 to Sting in 1990 might be the best ever.

2. Stone Cold Steve Austin

Star of Grown Ups 2 and Smosh: The Movie. Also, a 6-time WWE Champion who defied the odds to redefine what people thought of heels and faces and lead WWF into the Attitude Era. If you ever dreamed of punching your boss in the face, Stone Cold Steve Austin was your dude. If you ever dreamed of drinking so many beers that 80 percent of a case ended up on your shirt (or the floor), same dude.
