I don’t know how Flo intends to increase their infatuation with Taylor today over every other day, but I can’t wait.

It's always amusing how upset some people get when Flo turns on the hype machine for Taylor.  Never fails.

Not upset, just disappointed we’ll never see a #GwiazdowskiTuesday.

Didn't mean you... also I wouldn't be so sure.  They did Thomas Gilman Tuesday last week.  I'm sure if you spearhead the movement you could get #GwizWednesday off the ground.

They hyped Gable to an insane level yesterday. That's what Flo does, they hype the guys that get talked about.

With Taylor's record of 311 - 0 against Dake in Fantasy Wrestling, and never even gave up a point - it is to be expected. A record like that eclipses the 186 - 0 of Osamu Watanabe. Course, Watanabe did his for real... as if that means anything at this level.

Giving this more thought, I can’t expect a prime weekday slot be allocated to a heavyweight (even if he has a world medal). So maybe a #GwiazdowskiSaturday could work.

That's one of the beautiful things about being a fan.  It's your choice who you like.  To me, this World Team will have more athletes that I have pulled for hard in their college careers.  More than I can ever remember.  None are more interesting to me than Taylor and Gwiz, and JB, and J'Den, and Mr Kyle Snyder, and Gilman, and James, and on and on.  I admire Gwiz for one thing more than any other.  He knocked off Nelson, I believe to begin his run, and while going for his 3rd, he lost as a Senior.  That had to be tough as hell.  What does he do?  He makes the world team and two years later has a world medal.

this is true. 

 

Taylor is fascinating for a few reasons. 1) He is a dynamic entertaining wrestler. 2) He flirts with greatness but never obtains it. Its a very dramatic storyline.

The difference between Taylor and the Vikings is with Taylor we all still believe he will get there. With the Vikings, in your heart, you know they are going to let you down.

I know what you mean, but i think his World Cup performance in Iran was unqualifiedly great.   And also an inkling of what he is capable of.

Big Taylor fan here and  I have to admit one of the bigger sources of entertainment on this board for me is that it bothers so many that he's so good.  That he's great.     He may very well be the best wrestler in the world in his weight class.   He's demolished several of the top guys. .  When he went beast mode, folkstyle at Yarygin I just about flipped over the breakfast table where the computer sits, as I leaped into the air (about 2 inches off the ground).    I can't see any result at world's other than Taylor coming home with hardware.
