Current Shanks = Prime Roger (this will be stated by someone like Garp or the Gorosei) and when he's defeated by BB or Luffy, it will be clear that the current era surpassed Rogers era.

Oda's accuser
Naaah!
Akainu was suffering when he faced the very old WB!
I feel that was quite possibly a plot choice from Oda in order to let Luffy gain time, after all so many characters looked bad because of Luffy's plot shield elements.

And also I imagine Akainu will likely constitute the main thing at the war, Luffy will hopefully have to give his best to defeat him.

I feel when Akainu vs Luffy happens, they will be equal level
