Default GWOAT Round 3: Bret Hart vs. Lou Thesz

You can't get a better matchup than this in the third round. Hart took out Puerto Rican Legend Carlos Colon, and then got the surprising La Parka in round 2..Hart easliy put the "Lucha" out of his misery and has his biggest challenge and what some say first real competition here in round 3 in the form of Thesz..Thesz the man with a move named after him that stars such as Stone Cold Steve Austin and Trish Stratus have utilized in their matches was one of the legends of the squared circle..So far in this tourney Thesz had a pretty easy first round against Devon Storm then beat the late Brian Pillman in a close encounter of extreme styles. Now which champ heads to the sweet 16?

Lou Thesz a 6 time NWA World Heavyweight Champion. 3 of those times it also being reconized in Montreal too as the world champ. The man held the World Title for about 7 years straight. Longer then Backland had held the WWF World title. The reason Thesz lost the title, wasn't even due to a match, it was because of a skiing accident fucked up his ankle. The great match's that he has had all over the world are suppose to be historic and lengendary. Then add in the fact that he is the only wrestler to have wrestled in 7 decades, makes this guy in a lot of older fans eyes the number one guy to be the best Wrestler Ever. I'm gonna vote for Thesz out of a certain respect.........
I picked out this quote just to sum up why I chose Thesz in this round. I know that a lot of people are gonna pick Bret in this, and not give an actual reason, and the same with Thesz but when it comes to greatness. There are very few better then Thesz. Hart is known as one of the best technical wrestlers ever. Well Thesz was better and his career was more celebrated by old fans who were able to see both men wrestle. I didn't get a chance to see a shit load of Thezs match's and what I saw of them was when I was pretty young on VHS. But I do remember a certian atmosphere when watching the guy. He is a legend and has done things that wrestlers today can't even claim they've done. Like I have said on many occaisions. Samartino and Thesz should be the logical two finalist. That is where the fun in deciding is. But Hart is like Jeter and Thesz is like Dimagio and Thesz is and will always be greater then Hart.......

I guess I'll go with that, I've seen few Hart matches, The one that stands out is that one where Goldberg retires Hart with a Big Boot......

Pityful, but I guess Hart can't be blamed....

Thesz is a legend, no doubt about it, but in no way could he be considered better than Hart. And I don't even like Bret Hart. I think he's a dick.

As much as I'd hate too, I have to vote for someone other than Hart. Thesz had that famed move and made the business what it is.

Thesz i mean he has a freakin move named after him, and all those folks that see people show respect to Bret Hart using the Sharpshooter, well kiss off...he didn't come up with the move, Sting had been using the Sharpshooter aka the Scorpion Leg Lock years before Bret even thought of using it. So Hart is nothing really to me. He was good but not great like all the marks think.. LONG LIVE NWA
