    El lucador reacted to GoNotQuietly in Questions RE: Greco   
    One reason why Greco is not very popular and it is a hard thing to market, which others have alluded to, is that is just brutally brutally hard to compete in. I had a successful Greco career from cadets to university, but to take it into the professional level is just a pretty miserable life a lot of the time; the training load on the ribs, shoulders, and back is extraordinary painful. Almost every match involves being headbutted, punched, choked, having fingers bent, landing on your head (from your move or theirs), and having someone try to dislocate your ribs. There is so little separation, physically and in scoring opportunities, between opponents that it just gets pretty rough. A lot of us don’t mind that kind of stuff, but doing it every day of your life, combined with traveling to all those countries mentioned above, cutting weight, getting almost literally no recognition or financial compensation, and knowing there probably is not a college coaching gig or clinic circuit for you on the other side makes people walk away or never pursue it in the first place. Having no college scholarships outside of Northern Michigan doesn’t help either.

    I love Greco, but I am not sure it will ever be very popular. Despite the battles within the battles being fascinating to us in this thread, it often looks like nothing is happening, even to wrestling fans.

    I'm not disrespecting the kid just critiquing what I see as his biggest shortcoming on the mat. I'm not saying he won't be successful just that he will have problems if he doesn't make adjustments. As a Minnesota guy I said there was no way Dylan Ness and Seth Gross would ever have success a in college. So I tend not to make predictions anymore. Every year I am surprised by wrestlers who just don't pan out and by those who come out of nowhere.

    It's very similar to what we called an outside carry. We would do this with elbow or tricep control instead of grabbing the neck.

    I hate to be negative on 2 college studs but this to me was a glaring example of how bad our upper body skills are in America. How long do you think either of these guys would last in that position against Bay? That is a pulling position not pushing. You gain advantage by getting shoulder position and creating momentum in  your  opponent from their pressure.

    well; as long as he can still wrestle freestyle is all that matters, worked out for downey. 
    could be the best thing for his career to stop practicing for hours trying to ride someone and focus on freestyle.
