I vote Varian, Garrosh tried to kill his son, nobody can't beat that.
Gallywix. Appears the last moment, steals the kill, ninjas all the loot, and makes players bid for it. FFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

As long as his corpse or head is dangling from Teldrassil, I'll be happy. But he probably wont even die.
Should be Saurfang, all this sha imbued warriors style stinks of a repeat of the Blood Curse.
High Overlord Saurfang says: So the prodigal son has spoken!
High Overlord Saurfang says: Your father's blood runs strong in you, Hellscream. Impatient as always... Impatient and reckless.
High Overlord Saurfang says: You rush headlong into all-out war without a thought of the consequences.
Garrosh Hellscream says: Do not speak to me of consequences, old one.
High Overlord Saurfang says: I drank of the same blood your father did, Garrosh. Mannoroth's cursed venom pumped through my veins as well.
High Overlord Saurfang says: I drove my weapons into the bodies and minds of my enemies.
High Overlord Saurfang says: And while Grom died a glorious death - freeing us all from the blood curse - he could not wipe away the terrible memory of our past.
High Overlord Saurfang says: His act could not erase the horrors we committed.
High Overlord Saurfang pauses.
High Overlord Saurfang says: The winter after the curse was lifted, hundreds of veteran orcs like me were lost to despair.
High Overlord Saurfang says: Our minds were finally free, yes... Free to relive all of the unthinkable acts that we had performed under the Legion's influence.
High Overlord Saurfang nods.
High Overlord Saurfang says: I think it was the sounds of the draenei children that unnerved most of them... You never forget...
High Overlord Saurfang says: Have you ever been to Jaggedswine Farm? When the swine are of age for the slaughter... It's that sound. The sound of the swine being killed... It resonates the loudest. Those are hard times for us older veterans.
Garrosh Hellscream says: But surely you cannot think that those children were born into innocence? They would have grown up and taken arms against us!
High Overlord Saurfang shakes his head.
High Overlord Saurfang says: I am not speaking solely of the children of our enemies...
High Overlord Saurfang pauses.
High Overlord Saurfang says: I won't let you take us down that dark path again, young Hellscream. I'll kill you myself before that day comes...
Saurfang turns away and looks at the map instead.
Garrosh Hellscream says: How have you managed to survive for so long, Saurfang? Not fallen victim to your own memories?
Saurfang turns around for a moment to answer.
High Overlord Saurfang says: I don't eat pork...
High Overlord Saurfang spits.
This was in wrath, years before hating Garrosh became the "cool thing" to do or other NPCs suddenly got some time in the spot light to show how much they hate Garrosh (though it was nice to see some Blood Elf love).
Though based on how the story progressed in 5.1 I would think it would be Vol'jin.
My name is Cernunnos, I will love you like no other, I have died a thousand deaths, each time I died I thought of you.
For those who didn't have the splendid honor of attending the gate opening event for AQ this was the speech that Saurfang gave to the combined forces of the horde and alliance:
"I am Saurfang. Brother of Broxigar. You know me to be the Supreme Commander of the Might of Kalimdor. An orc - a true orc warrior - wishes for one thing: To die in the glory of battle against a hated enemy. Some of you have fought in battles. Peace has been with us for many years. Many years we sat idle but many years we battled. In those years - where strife the land and Legion and Scourge sacked our homes, killed our families - these insects dwelled beneath us. Beneath our homes - waiting. Waiting to crush the life from our little ones. To slay all in their path. This they do for their god. And for our gods? We defend. We stand. We show that as one. United. We destroy. Their god will fall. To die today, on this field of battle, is to die an orcish death. To die today is to die for our little ones. Our old ones. Our… loved ones. Would any of you deny yourselves such a death? Such an honor?"
THAT is a true Orc, this man more than any other deserves to cleave the false-hellscream in twain and become the warchief that the Horde so desperately needs right now.

Thrall, Saurfang, Jaina, Vol'Jin and Varian
but the players will land the killing blow.
I'd say it's not so much about who deserves to end him, but who should. The rest have a personal beef with Garrosh and would be glad to personally kill him, but with Saurfang it would be just to end the war, he would be an executioner for the good of his people and the realm. I see Saurfang as the backbone of the orcs. He would end Garrosh not out of hatred, but for duty, for the fact it had to be done. I don't see him revel in the deed, perhaps he would even feel sadness he couldn't get through to Garrosh. Because of the theme of war and hatred ultimately destroying us, I think it should all be ended by someone who transcends these things. Also, Saurfang represent the orcs, who are Garrosh's ultimate victims; the bad role-model is ended by the good role-model.
Now you see it. Now you don't.

Whatever happens (we kill him or dethronise him), he will have a long duel with either Thrall or Varian, depending on the faction you are playing.
Thrall - because he fought him once ina duel, and it was suspended by a rude interruption by the Lich King
Varian - because he fought him numerous times and they still can't figuer out who is better
I guess such a 1 on 1 duel will be just as cheesy and cliche as required for the end of MoP. I guess after the duel Varian/Thrall will attempt to just walk away, saying it's over, but Jaina/Vol'Jin will say "fuck you not over" and deliver the last blow, killing Garrosh and receiving a "not cool" look of Varian/Thrall. After that, feast and celebration, and since we killed warmonger, we gonna resume the war. Heroic points arent going to farm themself.
Saurfang and / or Vol´jin since they allready promised him what would happen if he went down that road.
"Only Jack can zip up."
The word you want to use is "have" not "of".
You may have alot of stuff in your country, but we got Lolland.
From a lore standpoint it would be important that if the next horde Warchief isn't an Orc that they get the killing blow because it would earn them a great deal of respect from the Orcs who have never been subordinate to other races. I highly doubt it would be anyone on the alliance since recent events have been forcing the ideal that heroes aren't about going after blood the way Jaina wanted or Arthas did. They'll work towards dismantling Garosh's army, but expect a typical speech from Anduin and/or Kalec to let horde finish off their own creation.
