World Champion = 6.5 points

Olympic Silver/Bronze = 5 points

World Silver/Bronze =  4 points

NCAA National Title = 2 points

I know you’re keeping this objective and the following opinion goes against that, but I honestly believe any world/Olympic medal after 1992 could carry more value. The break up of the Soviet Union has made it so much more difficult to medal. Just an opinion.

I don't know how he can feel so under the radar, but with our current loaded team, he still does somehow. Yet with just one more medal of any type, J'Den Cox will be a top 10 all-time guy for us. I think he gets lost in the shuffle because of his NCAA career being juxtaposed with Snyder and just after favorite son Dake and favorite son Taylor. And his ascension to national team-er felt like Goliath vs. Dake and Goliath vs. Taylor where he was the afterthought in "expected" results. And now his freestyle accomplishments are happening in the shadow of Burroughs, Snyder, and again Dake and Taylor. But suddenly you look up and it's J'Den Cox, all-time great. Awesome wrestler, awesome talent...and seemingly awesome guy. Much, much respect.

Cox is a world class person first and foremost. A great role model.

I don’t think there will ever be perfect criteria for this, but yours is damn close. 

While I get the point above about post 1992, it isn’t fair to the older guys. They can only beat who was put in front of them. 

These types of lists are also skewed based on how difficult it is to make a world team. Would Dake and/or Taylor have a bunch more medals JB hasn’t been in his prime right when they were starting to compete? If Jden was at 97Kg DT and Dake possible would have at least 1 more medal each too. 

Crazy to think that most likely only 1 of this year’s world champs will even make the Olympic team in 2020. The number of weights plays a huge role in this as well. 

Thanks for putting this together.

Totally agree and that’s where it becomes subjective and author is making this objective as possible. I’m just kinda playing Devil’s advocate. Couldn’t agree more the pre 1992 guys can only beat who was put in front of them, but that’s kind of my point, there was only one Russian put in front of them. To this end, in many ways it’s more difficult to win Yarigan than it is to win the world’s.

While I don't think it is going to make a lot of movement in your rankings, Senior level wrestlers making a world or Olympic team should earn some points if the goal is to have the best rankings you can quantitatively produce.  Since you are giving credit for NCAA performances; a half point for an All-American, one for making a NCAA final, and two for winning a title; I would assert World Teams should be a point and Olympic teams two because each are an equal accomplishment to their college performance.

I suggest not to criticize but to compliment. 

I recognize the time it took to do this and when compiling it that not all eras are equal; weights have been added, lost, and changed; tournaments, countries, qualifiers didn't always exist as they do now; rules have changed; formats have evolved; and qualification processes have varied. With that said, World and Olympic teams are consistent and wouldn't take forever to research to round out what you have done. Someone with a lot of time could dig deep and add age level world results, US Opens, Pan Am medalists, major tournament results, whatever but not sure how much better the final rankings would be.

Interesting topic.

Personally, I don't understand combining NCAA achievements and freestyle achievements. Not only are they different styles, they are totally different levels.

I also think that the number of world/Olympic golds should be the most important criteria. I'd also remember

  • the boycott in '80;
  • the boycott in '84;
  • the breakup of the Soviet Union in '92
  • the reduction to eight weight classes in '97
  • the reduction to seven weight classes in '02
  • the increase to eight weight classes in '14
  • the increase to ten weight classes in '18

I agree. Winning WTT is essentially a national championship of much greater difficulty than an NCAA title. I would suggest something like keeping what you but then doing World team member = 2 points, NCAA champ = 1 point, top 4 NCAA = 1/2 point. With the current system, someone would get more points for 8th at NCAAs than 5th at the world championships! HUGE difference there.

I also want to add that I really appreciate you taking the time to do this, so please don’t take this as a dis! I’m just making a suggestion as well. Overall it is a great list, and it is impossible to ever please everyone with a concrete formula!

FT - awesome job here.  I'm going to cast my vote with folks that are saying that a world team rep does deserve some points if you are going to give credit for NCAA finalist or NCAA AA.   I can see the argument for it being more valuable than NCAA title.  

That would make this list pretty damn long though.  Perhaps you need to be a world medalist for any lesser achievements to be counted ....... looks like you are doing that anyway.

I like your point spreads otherwise.  Including the Olympic  / World title / medal approach.

Russ Hellickson should be on this list. Three time World Team member, two time Olympian. Won world bronze in 1971, world silver in 1979, placed fourth at the 1975 World Championships, and Olympic Silver in 1976 so he has 13 points. I am betting he was overlooked when the list was compiled but he was someone I thought about before posting.

Russ is one of the guys that gets caught up in the numbers and loses out to some of the single cycle guys when it comes to his three cycle impact. In cycle one, Russ won Bronze a year after graduating colle. In 1972 and 1973 Ben Peterson won Olympic Gold and World Bronze at his weight.  During his second cycle in 1974 Russ won Tbilsi; in 1975 he moved up to 220 and finished fourth at Worlds; and he won Olympic Silver in Montreal. During his third cycle he won World Silver in 1979 and made his last Olympic team and never saw the mat. 

Katie brought up a good point about the boycotts in 1980 and 1984. Wrestlers who competed in 84 got the benefit in these rankings while those who were forced to sit in 1980 were penalized. With that in consideration I would give everyone that made the 1980 US Olympic Teams three points to balance out the inflation of placement of the 1984 US Teams.

Here are two great resources when researching all-time rankings:

I added Russ...... Thanks for posting the links, still have some work to do now, lol.

Couple replies to posts above:

If you look carefully at the list you will see that the vast majority of points come from international competition. NCAA results are usually nothing more then a tie breaker. Beyond that, the wrestling community values college wrestling and folk so it's my opinion it should be represented in a list like this. 

I thought about adding winning the US Open or WTTS, but I think you need to win a world level medal to make a list of "all time." Furthermore, adding that criteria wouldn't change the rankings much and would be a lot more work.

Greco should probably be included but I still haven't gotten all the freestyle guys in yet; maybe in the future they can be merged.

Russ has 13 points, 1971 World Bronze, 1976 Olympic Silver, 1979 World Silver

Tervel Dlagnev is another guy that got me thinking as a two Olympic cycle guy -

Using the current criteria he has eight points and gets credit for two out of eight years in a cycle. Using an Adjusted Career Wrestling Ranking (ACWR) to include World and Olympic Team points he has 14 points across two cycles and gets credit for six of the eight years. I think Dlagnev and Hellickson each lost a year to injury so I mention not to ask for points, but to put their competitive career in context.

2009' 3rd (4pts/4pts)

2010 Les Sigman 9th

2011 5th (0pts/1pt)

2012 5th (0pts/2pts)

2013' 5th (0pts/1pts)

2014 3rd (4pts/4pts)

2015 Zach Rey DNP

2016 5th (0pts/2pts)

Considering Tervel went through two cycles, made four World teams and two Olympic teams. He placed four times at Worlds and medalled twice as well as making two teams and placing at both of his Olympics, I think he deserves the bump. He kind of comes up on the short stick because of the change in NCAA rules that didn't give him the benefit of any college points because he doesn't get to wrestle at the Division I National championships. Kind of like the 1980 guys not getting any credit for making the Olympic team. With Tervel's DII titles he would have earned the DI invites 20 years earlier and he would have placed high as a junior and senior.

Had Dlagnev gotten a couple of points in college, his ACWR score would have doubled from 8 to 16 and I think it would have been a more accurate ranking of his accomplishments and his place in US wrestling history over his career.  I recognize that there are other wrestlers who would gain points by revising the criterias, but he moves up 15-30 spots in your rankings. It think think ACWR gives credit for longevity and accomplishment just as your bump for World or Olympic Gold. I know it is a matter of opinion, but who had the bigger impact, the one cycle guy that had one DNP at Worlds and an Olympic Gold or a guy that was top 5 in the World for a decade who always placed and brought back a couple of medals. For one year I take Gold, for a career I am going with the guy who stuck with it and kept at least six other heavyweights from making the US team

FT - I love the work you have done on these rankings. I like the idea of what you created and am just trying to add to it to make it more comprehensive. I am thinking about looking at these rankings twenty years from now, not just this year. There is some work to go back and crunch the numbers, but when it is done it is a matter of updating it year to year like you just did.

@Flying-Tiger Nice job! When I first pulled this up, I rolled my eyes. Now I can't stop looking through it. We could argue forever on the points and whatnot, but it is a really cool list you've created. I actually love having the NCAA in it because it is relevant to US fans.

I would add points (1 or 2) for Olympic Qualifiers. Would make the process very tough, but those are significant. Even half a point for World qualifiers but that might not be practical.
