OK had three champs and only placed third. I was surprised until I remembered that Cornell placed 4th when it had three champs a few years back.

Also interesting that all the runners up are pretty well forgotten in the wrestling world unless they won another year. Only the first place guys are remembered.

Dr. Death was arguably the most famous of all the finalists.

Just because the people here might not remember doesn't mean he didn't become the most famous. He ended up wrestling in the pros- (WWF?)

Went WWF to WCW, had some huge matches against other big names in the mid to late 90s. I stopped watching after middle school but in college we had “white trash Mondays” which was a 30 cube of beast ice and WWE RAW.

New to the sport?

Nope, been involved with the sport for 34 years.

Only within the sport- not to the population in general.

I don't know, there is a movie and a book that millions have watched / read about Dave Schultz.

Mostly wrestling people that already knew about Dave.  And more people probably remember DuPont with this.

That's ridiculous though to think only wrestling people watched Foxcatcher.

I'm sorry, I must have misread my own post and need to go back to school to learn that the definition of mostly actually means only.

Mostly implies not many who were not wrestling fans watched the movie.  It's entirely untrue as millions of non wrestling people watched the movie.

if i saw the reviews for foxcatcher and wasn't a wrestler and fan, i wouldn't have watched it.

so much dead air.

 

That's great, and many didn't watch the movie.  But millions of non wrestling fans still did.  It was nominated for many awards also, not by wrestling people.
