Jericho certainly didn't forget about him.
Yeah he gets very little love on here considering he was The Man in AWA durig the late 70's and early 80's

Bill Dundee is really overlooked, especially on the mic.

its quite simple... the guys with the biggest fan bases in the present will be remembered the most in the future... bigger fan base = more topics in the future, more references, more likely to get video packages, more likely to be mentioned or brought back to shows = there candle will burn longer as people who dont know these guys or are too young to have been around will do the research going by seeing topics on them, seeing recaps of them on shows or them being brought back as BIG TIME PLAYERs.

big example being The Rock most young wrestling fans tuning in from say 2005 onwards wont have a clue who many of the big names are from the past, but the WWE will name drop there biggest past stars who they know had a huge fanbase to get interest or bring them back or release a dvd knowing it will sell. kids well see this and check them out then become new fans... the ball keeps rolling.

Rikidozan is one. He is a legend in Japan but isn't mentioned much outside of the puro world.

Came across this today. Fun stuff. Legends in every sense of the word and oft forgotten.

Yeah, to me Baba and Inoki seem to get alot more attention than he does which is a bit unfair.
