Most wins Over Former/Current World Team Members --- w/out Making a Team

Recommended Posts

Oliver has FS wins over Metcalf, Humphrey and Kennedy after they had made world teamns (and in 2 cases before they made world teams as well), yet JO has yet to make a team himself.   Who else (who hasn't made a World team) has beaten than many (or more) World team members?

 

Taylor, Dake, Russell don't have any, do they?  Can't think of anyone.

Michaelek has beaten Varner; possibly Bergman too at some point.

 

Foster has beaten Ruth and Askren.

 

Lee Fullhart from back in the day probably wins this context.

 

Foster...interesting...has he beaten Gavin and/or Herbert?

J.D. Hawkins beat a lot of the top wrestlers back in the 1970s and even into the early 1980s.   Never made a world team for some reason.  I guess he just didn't beat them at the big tournaments.

Taylor has a win over Nick Marable at the 2013 US Open. Pretty sure Dake beat him at the 2012 trials.

I would say Lee Fullhart. Wins over World/Olympic team members Hartung, Gutches, Burton, Cael and Herbert and Lawal. That is very impressive! Poor guy! I don't feel bad because he never beat the international stars of the day in Romero, Satiev or Sajidov. He was like 0-6 against those guys so it is good he didn't make the team but I think he maybe could have medaled just not won it.

Ever. Fullhart............. Hartung, Gutches, Burton, Eggum, Cael, Herbert, Hrovat, and Lawal. How the he$$ did he do that and not make a team???

Now. Michalek I guess? JD and Varner

JO has 3.  See OP.

 

But Fullhart with 7 or 8, wow.

Dellagatta had wins over Lewis, Lee Roy Smith, Sergei Belaglazov, and perhaps Mike Land.

 

Wade Schalles I'm sure defeated a lot of studs, but didn't make a world team. Kemp, Dzeizdic, Ashluriev, ???

Wrestling's all-time leader in pins, having defeated 36 national champions, pinning 17 of them, and defeating 8 world titlists.
