As someone who did wrestle I realize all their hardwork and skill to their craft but from an overall athletic standpoint, not a very "athletic" sport. IMO.
I realize that's not all, hence why I said roughly 75%. My step brother was a state champ wrestler but we never asked him to play pick up basketball bc he was brutal. He quit baseball his freshman year bc he was cut from the team and just have up. Kid was a phenomenal wrestler (state champ & D1 scholarship), not good at much else in the sports arena.
That's why I started this thread, good debates

I have the utmost respect for wrestling and the sport. But we are talking about the best athlete. Not the "best at your sport". Thats why guys like lebron, Michael vick, Antonio Gates, ect should be on the list. Tiger Woods is the best golfer. But not the best athlete.Originally Posted by Rodja
I agree with that for best in the sport. But lebrons skill transcends all sports. Take Mark Ingram even. Heisman Trophy winning running back, but also a scratch golfer. Colin Kaeprnick is a superbowl-level quarterback, and also throws a 96 mph fastball at an MLB level.Originally Posted by herderdude
Bo Jackson. Tecmo Bowl. Enough said about his athletic prowess haha
In all seriousness, he could have done just about anything he wanted. Dominant in 2 professional sports, could have been the most intimidating Olympic sprinter. Had the build to be a wrestler, have a feeling if he was younger that he could kick ass in MMA if he put his mind to it. I'm left handed and when I was a kid I would pretend I was Bo Jackson. I still remember him running across the wall after he made a catch.

Only thing mundine is good at is fighting has Beene and running his mouth, glad he got his butt kicked last fight, greatest douche in history
