Tien wishes to have equal starting max powerlevel to Vegeta. But raw powerlevel only. Tien has his current techniques, Vegeta has his.
I think the tri beam wins because UE Vegeta tries to tank it to get stronger, but then after it hits him, his vision blurs and he holds his head and says he's taken far too much damage. He tries to fight on but the Solarflare makes his obvious concussion even worse and he forfeits, and asks to die, as Vegeta usually does.
I'd really like to hear a good argument for Vegeta winning at equal power level.
Vegeta is literally the vanilla Dragon Ball fighter. He brawls, he shoots big balls of energy... now what? Tenshinhan does all the crap Vegeta can do, just at lower power levels. Take that away from Vegeta, Tenshinhan has way more unique skills and techniques. I also think Tenshinhan is smarter fighter when he has a genuine even battle.
The only argument I'd even consider is Vegeta's one time use of teleportation. But since Vegeta has chosen never to use it, or has purposely forgotten, doesn't care to remember it's specfics, it's kind of pointless as an argument.
There is nothing special about Vegeta. Galik Gun? A big blast. Big Bang Attack? A big ball (that Moro mocked lol). Final Flash? Another big blast. And hell, he had to convince Cell to stand still just to land it; I think it goes without saying that giving the enemy complete control of your attack's success rate is far from ideal. The series goes on and on about how brilliant Vegeta supposedly is, but the only time he's shown as consistently shrewd is during Namek. Tien is way more creative and versatile. At equal power levels, the only characters I can see Vegeta potentially beating are Gohan and Yamcha.
