Then he has to lose about 50lbs to make things fair?

I bet he's over 300 easily now.  What are you weighing these days?  And not that that matters for our match up.  Much like Robin Reed, I will take on ALL challengers, no matter the size!

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.


   Seriously, you went four years of HS without a win?  I knew a guy whose only win in HS was against a girl.  He's a cop now.

Didn't Watanabe come out of retirement later on in life and lose some matches?

Sorry, had to vote for Reed. Pinned everyone on his team, being the lightest guy. I believe a few of them were Olympic Champs.

No joke - I was even pinned by a blind kid!  My sophomore year at 132lbs, I was set to wrestle a kid completely blind.  Easy win.  NOT SO!  He grabbed me, cradled and pinned me in the first period.


FOOTNOTE:  I believe God gives each of us things later in life when we can deal with them.  Back then, I couldn't buy a match.  Now at 39, I would be willing to bet money that I could beat nearly everyone on this forum.  But it had to come later in life.  :)

Watanabe came out of retirement ( in his fifties ) to do Veteran's Tournaments.   He got injured in one of them and defaulted - still considered a loss.
