    Default Pro Wrestlers vs. Captain America

    Not really a fight (feel free to discuss one if you'd like) but more of a question/clarification thread.

    How close in stats do certain Pro Wrestlers get to Comic Book Peak Human? What about MCU Cap?

    Im sure they don't have much speed stuff, but how do the best of them compare with stamina/strength/soak and so on?

    That none of us could see
    Our war would yield countless dead
    But never victory
    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"

    I think real life wrestlers still fall quite short. Which wrestlers would be considered to have the greatest soak, Mankind? I really can't see Mankind take the kind of beating Cap did at the end of Winter Soldier, nor survive against Ironman's punches in Civil War.

    They are infants compared to Cap level peak humans. The beatings that real life wrestlers take are scripted not to be true fight impacts.

    Huh. Yeah, given we are basically talking about theater here, it seems like the rumbles standards would treat them as their "characters" rather than their "actors."

    So wouldn't Kane have really good soak due to being burned alive so many times?

    With PIS off, Captain America BTFO when Undertaker hits him with lightning, sets him on fire then teleports him to the rafters, drops him on his head. Cap gets up and throws the ring at Taker but Taker catches it, and sets him on fire again with magic lightning....... oh wait, none of that ever happens in a match

    Must be PIS huh

    Yeah, seeing how both pro wrestlers and Captain America are equally fictional, it doesn't make sense to talk about wrestlers taking scripted beatings when anything Captain America did, whether it be in the comics or in the MCU, was equally scripted.

    They're both characters and should be judged as such.

    “He’s the most dangerous man alive in any comic universe.” — Wizard Magazine on Doctor Doom (Nov. 1998)

    “[He’s] the most dangerous man in the Marvel universe, because his greatest weapon is the way he thinks and plans, his tremendous intellect.” — Tom Brevoort on T’Challa (Sep. 2010)

    We can go both ways actually, i.e. for the actual people, was Chris Evans ever injured while filming or did he do some of his own stunts etc... wrestlers are basically live action stuntmen + actors all rolled into one, and their life is not very good going by how Mark Callaway hinted.

    For characters, yeah. Different story.

    Steve is going to be fighting to get a filthy sock out of his throat while on a plane that's being flown into the ground by Hulk Hogan, who is in turn being somehow controlled by The Ultimate Warrior through the power of...I don't even know what.

    I assumed real life meant has functioning real people and not in the ring fictional people. Even the latter interpretation set gives them no feats compared to Cap's soak or strength.

    Braun Strowman tipped over a tractor trailer and an ambulance. That's somewhere in the ballpark of Cap's strength.

    He holds back to the rules of the match because he wants to actually win the belts.
