While it is still a hot topic, let’s pit two vampire slayers against one another and see who comes out on top. While the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series made a heck of a lot more money per episode than the entire theatrical run of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one wonders what would happen if Kristy Swanson’s Buffy got in the ring with Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Buffy?
