Re: Analyze This: Greatest of All Times
But, why should GOAT have a basis of drawing power? It's automatically going to be biased because if it wasn't, these recent GOAT threads and conversations would be drastically different. People only base it on what they know or their own opinions. Like I said with Japanese wrestlers, it's easy to say those guys don't draw when you're not familiar with them. But fact is, if you base it more on drawing, that allows guys like Konnan, Mistico, Bruno and so many others that deserve to be considered.
Yet on the wrestling side, these guys probably wouldn't be mentioned at all. Answer me this, if drawing was major criteria in determining who was GOAT, do you feel The Sheik is considered 1 of the GOAT? I just want people to realize that if you at least base it on drawing power, look beyond American wrestling after 1984.
