I'm not disputing the fact that they had impact, but the GREATEST?
I guess it's all subjective right...

White did bring MMA to mainstream but does it pale in comparison to other sports? I don't think its on the level of the MAJOR4 sports yet.

Steinbrenner... I get the yankees logo being the most iconic logo in sports and I guess he changed the way how some leagues are allowed to build their teams like salary caps in NBA/NHL...

McMahon...he really pushed the envelope in terms of cable tv...the stuff that they have on such as the divas in bra and panties...blood/violence etc all on a weeknight show...but i think cabbie said it best: "is cirque du soleil a sport?"

I guess I just wasn't WOW'ed with how they swayed me in terms of their arguments
