I think the "official" reasoning for the Seed and Escaflowne redubs were that the remastered footage they were using didn't match with the original dubs.
That's not a problem with the recent 2017 Blu Ray of Fist of the North Star as it includes the incomplete '99-2000 dub. Toonami basically said that they would never fund a dub for an old anime so for that reason Netflix is the better bet for a possible Fist redub. Maybe if Saint Seiya's redub is popular enough, it would convince Netflix to dub or redub more 80s shonen. Haven't heard much buzz or hype with the Saint Seiya redub so I guess it wasn't that big a success?
