22Abdollah Movahed

He started wrestling at 19! Was on the national team 8 months late. 6 straight world title with an Olympic gold in the middle. Gave up no take downs in 6 years! Dan Gable was lucky Movahed injured his shoulder in his first match in the 1972 Olympics and had to pull out.

This guy never lost an international match. NEVER. Several world and Olympic golds.

Dominated the world of wrestling from mid-60s to early 70s never lost at major competition level.

Fantastic wrestler with 7 gold medals

Should be top 2... Even without the tragic story, the man was an animal.

How can you have an all time great list without this man? He was phenomenal and would be a 2 time Olympic champ has he not been brutally murderd

Dave Schultz is one of the many reasons that I'm wrestling today I Thant he is the best

won 3 world championships and beat dan gable when he was just a sophmore in college

26Kristjan Palusalu

Estonian heavyweight wrestler and Olympic winner. Palusalu became the first and only wrestler in Olympic history ever to win both the Greco-Roman and freestyle heavy weight events.

That's disgusting u even mention this dudes name in front of gold medalists. He has never even QUALIFIED for any Olympics and never won a college national title. What a joke. What he is is a bunch of wasted talent.

30Kyle Dake

Second best college wrestler. Internationally unimpressive.

31Kenny Monday
32Logan Steiber

So apparently no one has ever heard of this man. He should be in the top ten.

Umm are you sure Bret should be this high on the list? Compared to all the other REAL wrestlers he's got no chance. I'm not saying he's bad in WWE/WWF because he's clearly not but he doesn't deserve to be this high on the list. Sorry

36Ben Askren
37Yojiro Uetake

Never lost- and was never really challenged in three years at Oklahoma State from 1963-1966. Won three collegiate national championships. Won two freestyle Olympic gold medals for Japan in 1964 and 1968. HE IS THE BEST WRESTLER THAT NOBODY EVER TALKS ABOUT. Too bad- because he was incredible!

Holds the world record for most wins and most pins, definitely deserves a spot on this list!

European Championships: Oulu '89 (gold), Copenhagen '92 (gold), Athens '94 (gold), Poznań '90 (bronze), Budapest '96 (bronze). 15 times Champion of Poland in greco-roman wrestling.
