Which wrestler has the most freakish credentials
« on: February 21, 2010, 11:22:31 PM »
Warning:  This poll might be slightly biased.  Nevertheless, I am curious on what most wrestling fans consider to be the most impressive list of accomplishments.  I have included myself in there, not to sway the voting, but simply because I did what nearly no one in history has done.
Ok, stop right there.........and I'll bring back the sun.

I thought I read where he was bragging about bananas.  Maybe that was someone else.  :)

You mean Alexander Karelin?  Well, he got whooped by Rulon Gardner, didn't he?  None of the above mentioned wrestlers ( actually including ME! ) have never been whipped by Gardner.

What the heck??????   You wrestled Karelin to 10 - 1????  Good grief, I think I might have to rethink our 20 dollars a takedown bet between us two.  Oh wow!

Old Cougar, if I can't beat Viratas, my next step is to bully you!  :)

WAIT.   I just reread that.  You meant you got beaten by Gardner 10 - 1.  Was that pre toes or post toes match??

He still had all of his Toes  :D

It was the year he won the Gold.

On a side note the 1 point was for "Appreciation" on a lift. They figured I got him all the way up I desevred a point  :shock:

Haha.  Appreciation??  I've never heard of that before.  I'm sure Rulon didn't appreciate them giving you that point.  

I bet Rulon isn't in nearly as good of shape now.  I would love to see you two tangle at Jimmy's bar mitzvah - the tables moved out and you both are tossing each other over people's heads.  Women are screaming - kids are running for the doors!  :)
