Thread: Greatest freestyle wrestler of all time.

    I know i probaly shouldn't be posting this until after freestyle wrestling is over at Beijing, but i just didn't feel like waiting. Which freestyle wrestler do you all think is the greatest of all time? For me it would be a tie between Alexander Medved and Buvaisai Saitiev of Russia. But since we can only pick one, i think it would be Medved, although that might change once freestyle wrestling is over in Beijing.

    As of right now I'd agree with Zapp's picks as the top 3, the order of the three is debatable and probably comes down to just personal preference.

    I'd put Saitiev right now JUST below those three, however should he win his 9th Gold tomorrow in arguably the toughest world level bracket ever it'd get really hard to deny him that top spot.

    Valentin Jordanov (Bulgaria) 7x World Champion, 1x Olympic Champ, and 13x TOP 3 in the World at any one time should be added to the list.

    I'd say John Smith even though he didn't keep competing as long as the other guys listed did. I still think if he came back today he could probably medal in the Olympics or Worlds if not win it.
