We know Midlands doesn't mean much, Varner is a meanie, yes it was mid season, oh wait, it was just after season, well actually it was mid summer, freestyle is different, if it were MMA, Herbert would have won-wait Herbert tapped out, etc. We get it, Herbert can't be expected to beat Varner more than once out of every 5 attempts or so.

    You're right, now i'm convinced that Cael would not have beaten Herbert, unless any of the above mentioned factors were in place, or if they ever stepped on a mat under any circumstances. Glad we got that understood.

    this made me dumber. When discussing the topic of Herbert and Varner (a side comparison to try and put Cael and Herbert in objectivity), you should discuss the intricasies of the matches.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    I cannot allow you to blame your admitted, declining level of intelligence on this discussion.
    Lets go Brent!

    I may be old, but you've got to get up very early, in order to get anything wrestling or Judo related, past the Big German.

    Go Varner!!!

    "pwn" should never make an appearance unless it's on a Pee Wee League Football Field.

    In a round robin tourney who would win Dan Gable 1972 vs Alexander Karelin 1996 vs Cael Sanderson 2004 (ridiculous question)

    Is it a 2 hour match??? And is it legal to attact the legs???? I suspect that Cael and Dan could get their arms around one of Karolin's legs.......maybe tagteam???

    Thumbs Down Re: Cael Sanderson vs. Jake Herbert

    I saw Cael wrestle quite a few matches and the only time I thought he was even close to being knocked off was against Cormier in the finals one year and against Hahn in an open tourney (although, I know he lost one to the late Paul Jenn during his redshirt year). I agree with those who suggest that Herbert's free-wheeling style would put him at a severe disadvantage vs. Cael. That said....Cael by at least a major....he may even make it a t-fall as additional punishment for Jake's inappropriate and often excessive use of the dreaded term "pinfall".
