A Lou Thesz write-up right here at Cageside Seats!

If this is your first read with this series, here's the deal: We are looking to hyper-critique an individual and try to pinpoint what they are great and terrible at doing. It's okay to pull out the snark card in your responses.

In fact, it's encouraged!

After enough people respond, I will organize what are the best and worst traits of Lou Thesz, and compile an evaluation post later in the day. Also, don't worry if you have the same answers as others, the point is to figure out a common denominator for the wrestler.

So the two questions for you are:

What one thing do you consistently love about Lou?

What one thing do you consistently loathe about Lou?
