  • Myself being a farm boy born/ raised in iowa. As a little kid going up wrestling in iowa Dan Gable was a god. High school he was someone to look up too and now he's a role model.....

  • He's spitting facts though. I grew up in Wisconsin through the 80's 90's. Cops didn't have the pure money incentive like they do now. "For profit" jails have changed how they interact with us.

  • at 00:00 i didn't see were this would go, but i stayed, i listened, i liked his voice and his story... at 09:00 i didn't know how to think of his story. It made me think about myself and not being so fearful.

  • I wished Rogan would've asked him about Catch wrestling. Gable knows a lot of cool little details unknown to majority of internet about Iowa's wrestling history which is full of original (Catch) wrestlers; including two of America's all time best: Farmer Burns and Frank Catch. He also met Billy Robinson in the 70's on the movie set of "the wrestler". Actually according to Gable, Folkstyle wrestling was still known as Amateur Catch as Catch Can wrestling in Iowa when Gable was still coming up as a young wrestler. So he definitely has a story or two to share.

  • Growing up as a wrestler in iowa I still remember the first time meeting Dan. This guy is the most genuine and sincere man you’ll ever find. We were in Des Moines for the state wrestling tournament. I was young and running around the hotel with my friends and saw my mom talking with an older man in the hotel lobby. My friends and I all recognized him immediately and went to meet him. We talked for awhile and we all asked for his autograph. When he left my mom turned and asks “Who was that?” She had no idea that she had been talking to the most famous wrestler of all time for the past 30 minutes about youth wrestling and how great the sport is for raising young men. I had multiple other encounters with him growing up as many other wrestlers could tell you he makes a point to be a part of the community and spread his wisdom to the youth. We couldn’t ask for a better advocate for the sport and for the state of Iowa.

  • Mental Toughness = YMCA plug. I love it. Breaks my heart when I see communities without one. It was such a huge part of my childhood as well. Dan Gable is a wrestling legend. Even for people who have no context for him or the sport, you just know this is a guy to listen to.

Maybe this might change my mind but doubtful when he was my hero and brushed off interaction with me and others around him like it didnt matter at all.

  • I didn’t hear him explain why he is mentally tough. I heard him give examples of how he was already mentally tough as a young kid, and how circumstances made him tougher. But he didn’t imply that same upbringing would result in a championship mindset for other children exposed to the same. Thus, those circumstances are not what gave origin to his mentality, it came before that.

  • never thought Joe would have this legend on! I grew up In Illinois and Ohio two wrestling powerhouses wrestled for 10+ years and this man and Burroughs were always a huge inspiration, once you’ve wrestled everything really does become easier. Having a bad day at work doesn’t come close to being on your back pinned down fighting with everything you got to belly out and getting a raise buying a dream car/home whatever doesn’t come close to having your hand raised after a hard fought match for me. Absolute shame the olympic committee ever removed the sport in favor of racewalking badminton and that thing where girls twirl streamers

  • Of course the world is a better place for more people than ever, but my definition of the "good old days" is all about autonomy and anonymity. The days when you could get lost if you want and do what you want as log as it didn't infringe on someone else's autonomy. Today it's all about the collective whose purpose is to protect everyone from life, whether said protection destroys you or not.

That's why these kids all have guns, because their all scared to death of a good fun all out fight. Nothing can replace getting punched in the face and responding like a man

  • My great aunt was an amazing woman, eccentric, lateral thinker, a mentor. She took me to learn skiing & one day I punched a kid who was being a bully to me & others. My aunt went to talk to the other boy's dad & it all got straightened out, but later she told me if it hadn't gone well she was getting ready to punch his dad! Maybe one thing Dan Gable is saying is with great adults around who don't over-correct you and are on your side a child can learn confidence in themself & learn what they're capable of.

  • I grew up 30 minutes from Iowa city, we idolized him( my friends and myself), so for my 12 th birthday present I was given an Iowa wrestling camp experience from my dad. The first day of camp about 100 or so of us sat in the Iowa wrestling practice gym, and here walks in Gable. He walked back and forth for 10 minutes squeezing a tennis ball yelling mental discipline and what it takes to be the best. When he was finished you could have mopped up the sweat from the floor from him just from him getting worked up. To say he’s a gladiator would be an understatement. If those walls in that practice room could talk.
