The Greatest Wrestler Alive?

It is not hard to make the argument that American freestyle wrestler, Jordan Burroughs, is the greatest wrestler alive.  Since graduating from the University of Nebraska in 2009, Jordan has put together one of the most dominant runs in the history of international freestyle wrestling.  Competing against the very best wrestlers in the world from every corner of the globe, Jordan has amassed a perfect 67-0 record.  He won a gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics, and he just recently claimed his third consecutive World Championship.  He outscored his opponents at the 2013 World Championships 34-3.  He did this despite having only 11 days to prepare for the tournament.  Burroughs suffered a severe ankle break just 4 weeks prior to the competition, and competed against his doctor's advice.

Is Jordan Burroughs the greatest wrestler alive?  It is pretty hard to argue otherwise, and at just 25 years of age Jordan is still improving.
