It's not "My criteria". He didn't even give Oden Human form Kaido, and strictly had him fight against Dragon form Kaido who Oda himself depicted as his weakest form. So you can miss me with that bullshit. Oden got swatted away like a fly by Roger, was absolutely mind boggled at Roger and Whitebeards clash, and given Kaido's weakest form as an opponent. Kaido has been slowly acknowledging Luffy this entire fight, and even views him as someone capable of fighting against him, and if not now, soon. Doesn't make Luffy a bonafide Top Tier yet.
