Kung Lao is so out of it these days he relies on a tricked out hat to keep his ground in a fight and whereas in the MK Universe, when someone dies, they die (Ok just Johnny Cage so far but still) whereas Paul has to battle one of the most screwed up families in the history of gaming, who just won't die. One of them even sets a bear on a Paul in every tournament and our sky scraping doo'd friend still survives each tournament. Lets not forget that Paul's sparring partner is the most accurate video game dedication to Bruce Lee ever seen. Sure, Kung Lao's descendant is a Bruce Lee tribute character, kind of... but quite a bland one and Kung has never fought him in MK canon. Paul fights with Marshall Law all the time and his kid Forest just for training. Someone who happily gets into a scrap with Bruce motherfucking Lee and comes out all smiles is not the kind of guy you want to piss off. Its got to be Paul. Also, motorcycles > hats.
