    I detected I Mar's energy level was down 10 percent at the end, and JB was able to capitalize on a shot that I mar blocked off in period 1. 

    I wonder if IMAR got a little too psyched-up for the match.   Adrenline is great but exhausting.

    Next match will really show where these guys are at.

    Why pretend you're going to wrestle in Vegas and then act like you are going to wrestle in Final X until a couple days before?

    It seems that if you are a prince in wrestling like Dake or Taylor you don't get called on cheap deception.

    People say it is within the rules so anything goes.  I say it stinks and it harms other wrestlers.

    Nickel is too much of a big shot for u23! Most dangerous wrestler on the planet!

    I missed the big shot he scored against Cox.

    I agree he is Mr. Excitement (unless you are being totally sarcastic.)

      Sure wish he was at a reasonable weight class and representing the U.S. on the world team.

    yes. that's why they didn't confirm all U23 winners - eligible wrestlers who lose at Final X can challenge the U23 winners. Yianni, Fix and Deakin are all potential challengers too (and I may be leaving someone out).

    The rule makes sense.  Nickal certainly should go U23.  The college guys - seems to me that year round wrestling is path to burnout.   They need some break before the grinding NCAA season.  Unless they make the big boys world team I'd say take a break.

    Everyone has it figured out now, two days later and hundreds of video reviews.  Great job.  

    Could you prepare a dumbed-down executive summary for me?   I honestly can not follow this discussion.

    For sure the rule is too complex to be good for the sport.
    Any rule that allows a challenge after 50 seconds of wrestling is nutty.


  6. Wrong calls and bad rules are a part of every sport.  It's like there is a margin of error in any competition.  So you have to win by more than the margin of error to make sure you don't get screwed.

    Zain was the better wrestler last night.  He won the first match, and the second match was undetermined.   Yainni got screwed,  but at least the guy who showed better advanced.

    Who cares if men/boys beat women. That's not the idea of the sport and competition. 

    Agreed, that really is besides the point.  

    As I watch women's wrestling I see less sophisticated or elegant movement.   Hard to put into words.  It's more basic wrestling relying a lot on strength.   
    I'm not even sure my observation is true because I haven't watched a ton of women's wrestling.   Don't see, say, ankle picks setup with movement.
    I don't think the women have been wrestling since they were little kids and that shows.   They aren't as smooth as men.

    Also respect. I have respect for their skill in their effort and performance.

    Quit being a ponce.

    I disagree that their skill level is high relative to mens wrestling.

    That is just an honest observation of where that sport is at.  You can't handle the truth, as Jack would say.

    Women's basketball was TERRIBLE for about 15 years, BTW.  It got much better.

    Second that. Has to find a way contain Gwiz without burning through his gas tank to do it. 

    Training with Tony Nelson is not going to prepare him for pace of Gwiz.  Not sure the intensity of that match can be fully prepared for.
