Default GWOAT Round 1: Don Muraco vs. Brock Lesnar

The Magnificient One vs. The Next Big Thing..Now remember this is a greatest wrestler of all time tourney and while it is possible for Brock to win this round, you also must take into account that he is so young and not been in the business that long..I'm not talking about Era i'm talking about years wrestling. So for him to be the greatest of all time right now might be a stretch. anyway, lesnar is self spoken, while you might not remember much of muraco, a former IC champ, the magnificient one wrestled two classic cage matches against Jimmy Snuka. including the ones were Snuka first jumped off the top of the cage in MSG..Muraco was also known for his strength..I am sure some others can help me out here with the info on Don.

you raise a good point DC... lesnar is too young to be considered the greatest wrestler of all time... although he is a spectacular wrestler, one of my favourites... muraco vs snuka were classic matches, but so was angle vs lesnar... rock vs lesnar... but I vote muraco.

Don Muraco was known more for his physical size than anything, as i recall.....at the time, he was a huge man in the wrestling world.....now, his size would probably compare very closely to Brock.....Muraco was the IC champion, as DC stated, and did put on a few classic cage matches.....more of a brawing style, he wasn't one to throw out high risk moves.....not a great man on the mic, but his style in the early 80's fit what the WWF was looking for in a second tier champion.....

Brock is going to be one of the greats, yes....he has done a lot in a short time span.....however, this is a watered down era of wrestling, to an extent.....a decade plus ago, Brock wouldn't have sniffed gold yet.....

in a greatest of all time tourney, with the entire career of Muraco vs the three years of Brock, i vote Muraco......

give Brock ten years.....then vote again.....

Like I said Lesnar is in the tourney basically cause he was a champion in the WWE, although i also take in consideration the brand extention and realize lesnar only wrestles half the roster. So Muraco gets the vote from me. In about 2-3 more years depending on what happens then maybe brock would have recieved my vote.

i voted for Don, but dont get me wrong, its just because Brock has been in the WWE for less than 2 years, i think he is a legend in the making but Don is a legend, enough said

This is what I would have posted along the lines of. These are 2 men who I thought for one reason or another shouldn't have been on the WWF all time top 50 list. Muraco, is diffenently not as good as Brock is in the ring. Brock isn't a veteran or old enough to be the best ever. I think it is important to see where his career will be in 5 or 6 years before the jury can fully rule. Muraco, was a big man with power, but that is where it stops. Some of his match's with Hogan were hard to watch. He had a nice fued with Snuka, and was the man on the reciving end of the Splash of the top of the cage. He was a pretty decent IC champion the second time around and held the title for over a year. I think that was around the best point in his career. Some good match's with Santana. But for some reason when I think of great wrestlers, I will always think of Brock over Muraco. For some weird way or another I think Brock is a better wrestler, who is young and will only imporve. Where Don the Rock, I never really was into nor do I think his match's are better to watch then Brock's. In a surprise upset vote I'm gonna choose Brock over the Rock and pick Lesnar........

Lesnar has allready done more in his career than Muraco ever did. And I don't buy the "Lesnars only been in wwe for 2 years" Argument either. Lesnar spent plenty of time in ovw, not to mention all his time in amatuer wrestling. Wasn't he an all american champion or somthing? Please, Lesnar is 50 times the wrestler that Muraco ever was and the real scary thing is, Lesnar keeps going foward and in 10 years, Lesnar my very well be the best wrestler ever. He won't win this contest, mostly cause everyone will bag him for not having a 20 year career yet, but he will go down as one of the greatest wrestlers of his era, if not all time.

Hats off to Lesnar for giving us size and speech in the ring. Hats off to Lesnar for nearly braking his neck trying back flip off the rope. But I have seen Lesnar screw up alot in the ring and the other wrestlers cover him for his blunder. Muraco Gets the vote.

Again i'd rather vote for Muraco but didn't. Back then most of the wrestlers didn't have instant titles and awards handed to them. They had to spend years working for what they got in the business, something todays wrestlers don't have to do.
