No. Roger had Shanks. And Shanks rival in Roger's ship was Buggy.
It makes more sense that Mihawk was in WB's crew.
Shanks was a MERE cabin boy, we are talking about the World's greatest swordsman. Who says they could NOT be on the same crew fighting each other. Gol Roger having the Strongest swordsman at his side would be better.
]Your "lolin" for no reason…think. WB is supposidly as strong Roger. At that level of strength, why is it that he hasn't found OP like his rivals did...? Roger accomplished EVERYTHING a pirate wants to be in life, WB simply tied with him and still wasn't as succesfull. Roger was the best of the best; when he died, WB continued. Obviously, someone of his skill would become famous. But he was vastly overshadowed by Late Roger. Like I said, "by default".
WTF?:wassat:Roger finding One Piece had nothing to do with Whitebeard being famous. Being able to tie and fight Roger very often for One Piece possibly means that he was very famous. Also, Anyone being a RIVAL to the Pirate king will NOT be vastly overshadowed, and NO it is NOT by default-LOL!!!
Second, I didn't say it's impossible for him to be on Roger's crew. I said why would someone on the GL trying to find OP sit down and watch two cabin punks spar…? Or, maybe they weren't cabin punks and kitchen rats at the time of their dueling, that STILL doesn't say WB hanged around watching (Unless, as I said before, he was INVOLVED in the fight or was seriously injured and watched, both of which are ludicrous). I am only sanging it is highly unlikely he was on Oro Jackson. And btw, Mihawk wasn't the greatest from the begining, he got stronger. By FIGHTING Shanks and training.
Like I said speculation! Nobody knows how long Hawkeyes was the strongest swordsman in the world, an old pirate like a Zeff (Red Shoes) considered him the best. Also it is very possible for Hawkeye's to be from Roger's crew anything is possible. Like I said before Hawkeye's background has YET to be revealed…....
