List Rules Vote for the person you most want to partner up with in a tag team fight to the death.

Fighting to the death. You know you’ve thought about it; pop culture has definitely made you consider it. In the event of an ultimate showdown, who isn't curious about their ability to demolish an opponent?

Now, kick it up a notch and imagine you are allowed a partner: who would you choose to be by your side? There's much to consider: strength, cunning, skill with edged weaponry, sh*t-talking, all skills a death-match mate should possess. When you're down to the wire, your choice of partner will determine whether you make it out of your fight alive or end up whooping their ass in the afterlife for being such a letdown.

Who would be the best celebrity to team up with in a fight to the death? Do you pick a tested athlete who faces pain on a daily basis? A politician who understands that a fight can take on a myriad of forms? Or, because death is random, do you prefer a wildcard? A matter of life or death, so be sure to choose wisely.
