After all, Andre says he won't make up his mind until the end of the year.
A YEC win would lend a nice symmetry to his career, because it was his first really big title, way back in 1990 (outside of TMS Miami earlier that year). He has made quite a few TMC finals since then, but not won the actual title.
Of course, if he wants to continue into 2006, good luck to him! His level is still quite impressive.
