Who Really Deserves To Win The Street Fighter Tourney?

I'll keep this short and sweet. We all know that Ryu is the canonical winner of the Street Fighter tournament, but which character do you think truly deserves the title? It's not a question of who the best character is to play as, but I'm just interested in knowing who's really earned it over the years.

Ryu is the dependable pick, and that's probably why Capcom has such a huge crush on him. My vote goes to Zangief. Ryu trains by punching waterfalls. Zangief fights live bears. If that's not dedication to his craft, I don't know what is.

Your turn.

As an aside, this obviously isn't Zangief, but Ken's ending always cracked me up. "What are you" indeed. (I have a lot of growing up to do. Sorry.)
