Strongman Brian Shaw - The STRONGEST EVER?

Unquestionably one of the strongest men to have walked the planet. We've seen him lift, squat, press, throw and run his way to a colossal amount of victories - including 4 WSM titles.
Where does BRIAN SHAW rank in the all time greats of STRONGMAN in your opinion?
Can 2020 mark a record equaling 5th WSM title?
Even before his first WSM win, he was dominating events - as this clip from London 2011 shows - GIANT CIRCUS DUMBBELL for reps - 100kg / 220lbs and ATLAS STONES - a young BRIAN blasted away the opposition and took the Giants Live crown.

    There should be an asterisk next to Shaw's title because when he was peaking there wasn't any serious competition around.

    Strongest? No. Most well-rounded competitor? Very likely. Shaw is very versatile, unlike niche competitors that only really have one specialty (Felix- grip, Hall-deadlifting, Stoltman-stones, etc). He is the total package for the sport as a whole. Him and Bog Z evolved the sport towards more athleticism and higher weights
