    Armen Nazarian, Bulgaria - Arguably one of the BADDEST men in Greco, ever.

    Former US Army Coach:
    Anatoli Nazarenko, USSR - 3x World Champion, Olympic and World Silver Medalist.

    Others to argue that won the big prize when it counted:
    Jon Roenningen (Norway)- 1988 Olympic Champ, 1992 Olympic Champ
    Vincenzo Maenza (Italy)- 1988 Olympic Champ, 1992 Olympic Silver
    Andreja Wronski (Poland)- 2x Olympic Champion
    Oleg Kutcherenko (Russia) - 2x Olympic Champ, 4x World Champion etc...
    Filiberto Ascuy (Cuba) - 2x Olympic Champ
    Kwon Sim (Korea) - 2x Olympic Champ

    Could be mistaken on a couple of the guys and their stat's. I cannot pick a most dominate of all-time, yet this is a pretty good list IMHO.

    I don't think Koucherenko won 2 Olympic titles.

    Karelin is the obvious choice, technique or no technique. Other than Karelin, I like the call of Nazarian. He was a scary dude too.

    Oleg was only a one time Olympic Champ. Sorry for the misinformation. Regardless the dude was very talented and helped Germany for many years on their world team after he left Russia. I guess he is a PE teacher somewhere over there.

    So what you all are saying is that Karelin didn't really have the greatest technique, that it was just his strength that made him so nt because he was like 10x more stronger than a normal hwt and just pushed them around like a doll because no one else could compare to his strength?

    I don't know what made Karelin so great, I've never seen a full match of his. Clearly his mental game was superb to stay unbeaten and unscored-on for so long, whatever his physical and technical strengths and weaknesses were.

    I know Nazarian won a bunch of medals, but what exactly are his accomplishments?

    Nazarian has three Olympic medals. He won Gold in 1996 and 2000. He took the Bronze in 2004.

    Then he also has seven medals at World Championships. Gold in 2002 and 2003. Silver in 1993 and 1995. Then Bronze 1997, 1998, and 1999.
