I may not have factual evidence in terms of stats and numbers, but what Goldberg and Lesnar did in the ring in comparison to Ryback speaks for itself. If you compare Goldberg and Lesnar's showings of strength and power as wrestlers, they impress far more than Ryback, simple as.
Yes it is. Nobody walks up to a buff guy and asks how much they squat or curl or deadlift when asking how buff they are. They ask how much they bench. So yes it is the most popular form of strength measurment for most people.
If you disagree, then feel free to tell me what is the more popular form of power measurment. Don't just disagree and not even make a counterpoint.
And no, sorry, what they did doesn't "speak for itself". Nor does any of their spots refute confirmed measurments of their power. They did different moves which were easier to do. . .so how is that a good comparison? (rhetorical question, it isn't a good comparison)
And we can stop talking about Lesnar now since nobody is saying Ryback is stronger than him. I'm talking about JUST Goldberg, because you, and I quote, called him, "an incredibly fucking poor imitation. Goldberg".
Your topic is about Ryback in comparison to Goldberg. Quit trying to derail the argument by bringing up other people.
