Geese Howard vs. Shang Tsung
A friend suggested this matchup to me and I thought I'd try it.
We all know how good Geese is, and Shang Tsung is just as legendary in MK circles.
As for why, let's say that Shang is looking to eat Geese's soul and acquire his techniques. Geese is naturally annoyed at anybody muscling in on his turf. Shang demonstrates his powers by defeating Billy Kane and eating his soul. Geese, enraged, jumps up from behind his desk and gets into a stance. It's on.
Geese: CVS2 version
Shang Tsung: MK: DA version. I'd use armageddon, but I don't have the game or know enough about any changes made to the character.
Edit: Shang Tsung cannot eat Geese's soul unless he wins.
In the words of Mills Lane: "Let's get it on!"

I'm the one who suggested this mainly because Geese/Krauser remind me of Shang Tsung/Shao Kahn. But I have to go with Shang on this for a few reasons. I remember all the characters from Fatal Fury but I don't know alot about how strong they are supposed to be plotwise, but Liu Kang was a very accomplished fighter who had beaten Shang, Kintaro, and Shao Kahn(twice). Why doesn't Liu Kang matter in this? In Deadly Alliance Shang Tsung had stolen Liu Kang's soul. I don't believe Shang absorbing someone's soul makes him as strong as they were but that has to count for something.
Also even though you didn't say this was Armaggedon, in the Armaggedon intro Shang faired the best out of pretty much everyone in an all out battle royal. I don't really know how well Geese would have faired in that kind of environment.
I think even if Geese is somehow more powerful then Shang, Shang has more tricks up his sleeve to turn the fight in his favor. I don't know if this counts towards the argument but I don't think Shang ever lost the ability to morph. I think they just took it out of the gameplay because they wanted him to be unique. Infact I know he didn't because he was disguised as Kung Lao in the intro to DA.
I recall a fight Shang had with a guy called the Temple master from that MK Begins Cartoon for the first movie. (Runs about 22 mins, it was pretty good for a low money made thing)
Shang battles the Temple Master, and Raiden said, It was as IF Shange could look into the Temple Master's very soul and predicted his next move. OF course the Temple Master try to clear his mind, but that did not work. Shang could have tell when a punch, kick, what ever was going to happen before the guy thrown the punch.
Shang is tricky of course, and sneaky, and down right dirty at times in fighting.
Have a laugh evey now and than.
Shang would win IMO. And for the record Liu Kang is no pushover. It took the team up of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung--infamous deadly alliance--to kill the Shaolin warrior. Not even the Emperor was a match for them. Too bad I never played the MK games after DA.
