Dan Severn - Yay Or Nay For The Hall of Fame
Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement… It’s
Wednesday and time for another Yay or Nay for the Hall of Fame.
everyone and their mother knows Brock Lesnar defeated Mark Hunt at
UFC 200… and I’m sure no palms were greased by Dana White to
ensure that if the fight went the very short distance (when compared
to boxing) that Brock was guaranteed a win by decision. Then again,
considering how convenient certain things happen in that organization
I’d be more shocked if no one was bribed.
really got my goat, was folks saying that Lesnar is the greatest
combat fighter of all time because he won a MMA fight while being a
freaking kidding me?
sorry but no…. No on so many levels… Lesnar is not the greatest
combat fighter of all time because he’s a part timer freak show act
in the world of pro wrestling and he has had only nine… count ‘em
NINE fights, 8 of which was spread between 2007 and 2011 and has a
history of not being able to commit to anything.
you want someone who intead is the greatest combat fighter of all
time… look no further than the true Beast… Dan Severn.
obviously, I normally stick to the pro wrestling accomplishments
here, but since everyone was to jump on the Crock Lesnar bandwagon…
let’s drop a little history as it relates to Severn.
Olympic Team Alternate, 13 National AAU Championships, UFC Hall of
Famer and the only Triple Crown Champion in the history of that
organization, various regional championships within the world of Pro
Wrestling including being a two time NWA World Heavyweight Champion
and at one point at time held that and the UFC Heavyweight
Championship at the same time.
To date he
has has 127 professional MMA fights, winning 101… and here’s
where it gets good, nearly 30 of those fights came within the same
time span of Lesnar pitiful 8 fights.. During his one year with the
WWE, Severn had well over 40 matches (that I can find record of), a
handful on non-WWE wrestling bouts, and 7 MMA fights. And yes, he was
winning the majority of his MMA bouts.
So tell me
again in comparison, how the hell is Brock Lesnar the greatest combat
fighter of all time, he he doesn’t even come close to someone who
is done the same things? Let me save you some time, you can’t
answer that question because Lesnar doesn’t match up… at all.
looking at Severn’s career and the question of him being a WWE Hall
of Famer… yes he didn’t have a long stint with the WWE, and like
Ken Shamrock was misused greatly thanks to Vince Russo, but at the
same time, one has to take a look at everything. His first NWA World
Heavyweight Championship reign lasted four years and is one of the
longest single reigns in the history of the title. He STILL is a
cross-over star, there is no one like him around in their prime that
could touch him in terms of being a legit athlete.
So in my
warped little world, yes Severn should get into the WWE Hall of Fame
because of that…
yeah… if Severn was to face Lesnar today… I’d predict Severn
would whoop Lesnar six-ways from Sunday and win a minute into round
