21 Jeff Blatnik


22 Abdollah 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

23 Dave Schultz

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

Dave Schultz is by far the greatest wrestlers of all time

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

29 Kyle Dake

Second best college wrestler. Internationally unimpressive.

30 Wade Schalles

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

31 Vugar Orujov

Watch some of this guys matches he's an untaimed beast.

Vougar is the best

The goat

32 Kenny Monday

Kenny was one of the assistant coaches at Montclair State when I wrestled there. He was an amazing wrestler- totally committed to wrestling.

33 Rulon Gardener
34 Aaron Pico

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.

35 Cary Kolat

Definitely should be ranked in the top 15 I mean 36 come on

Why you don't know him:
Most screwed wrestler in history. He had controversial matches overturned at both the 1997 and 1999 World Championships, before the same thing happened to him at the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Ended his college wrestling career with an impressive.941 winning percentage (111-7) and 53 career falls.

In high school, Kolat competed successfully in college and international tournaments finishing his high school career at Jefferson-Morgan School District with an undefeated (137-0) record and four Pennsylvania state titles.

36 Andrzej Wroński

Olympic Games: Seoul '88 (gold), Atlanta '96 (gold)! World Championships: Tampere '94 (gold), Athens '99 (silver), Stockholm '93 (bronze), Wrocław '97 (bronze). 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.

37 John Cena John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.
38 Danny Hodge

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

39 Bret Hart Bret Hart Bret Sergeant Hart, better known by his ring name Bret "The Hitman" Hart, is a Canadian-American writer, actor and retired professional and amateur wrestler. A member of the Hart wrestling family and a second-generation wrestler.

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
