WTF?! Where did the bit between SamZED and darkangels come from?!

In the intro man. Bryan and Paul threw punches and stalemated.

Jin's the poster-boy of the series, so I cannot argue against him being better than anyone. Paul is at least = Kazuya, and Paul > Heihachi. iirc, Paul beat Heihachi during T3, not too sure though.
T3 Paul was a beast. T1-T3 Paul was the incarnation that I loved. They screwed him up (character-wise) from T4 onwards.
Paul won the entire T3 tournament leaving out True Ogre so is he > everyone who appeared in T3? No. He won a tournament, and that was 3 tournaments ago. Usually, here we go by accomplished feats that aren't person A beat B and so on, but ones that display some magnitude or degree of a trait like strength, speed, durability etc.
In reality Paul, against Kazuya will fall, and would fall worse if Kazuya taps into his real power. The day I see Paul throwing a punch, missing and as a result, making the ground break beneath him and building glass to shatter, I will put him on the level of Kaz, because in fact a punch from Paul that hit with full force against Bryan Fury's managed to do hardly even half of what Kazuya and Jin's missed blows did, you see? If anything we should be putting Paul on Bryan's level, which is not bad, of course, when Bryan is rushing tank shells and machine gun fire without a problem. Not saying Paul could do the same but I would say overall, he is on Bryan's level. Again Bryan is pretty damn good for the accomplishments he has. Paul verses Heihachi is a no brainer. More often than not, Heihachi will win. If strength feats are equal between them, which I don't believe so since Heihachi has been breaking JACKs one after another in the intro to T5, Heihachi's durability is >>> his. Surviving an explosion blasting an at-least 150 lbs man for miles away as the game puts it is better than...I can't think of any durability feats for Paul.
