You need to look up what consensus means, and his HW title run won't be historic for at least another 5 years or 12 defences. Wlad is only mentioned in ATG lists because of his longevity and mythical H2H ability, and he's barely halfway to Louis' record without beating any Hall of Famers along the way.
