    You seem to have an issue with Dake because he didn't immediately announce that he would need more time. In what high-stakes competitive field in life should you expect a competitor to do something that is in his competitors' best interest and against his own best interest? He, and DT too, are following the rules. Holding resentment towards either for being competitive while following the rules is ridiculous. This is not on Dake or DT for that matter. Announcing they're either out or want more time well within the time frame allowed for by the rules is not dishonest or underhanded in any way whatsoever.

    Couldn't disagree more.  Both Dake and Taylor have engaged in poor sportsmanship.

    This is not like football where injury reports are obscured to the max for competitive advantage.   In this case other wrestlers are directly impacted.   
    Just because the rules allow this behavior does not make it the right thing to do.  It's disrespectful to fans and fellow competitors to withdraw in last week.

    Of course PD3 has been all over social media since WTTs - on Twitter alone, he's sent out close to 50 tweets following his match. 

    Hah!  News to me,  I went and checked twitter and  PD3 has blocked me. This is ironic because I really like the guy and have been defending him.

    PD3 criticized Askren for smiling after getting tech-falled by Burroughs.  I thought that was a cheap shot,  I tweeted Askren is 34 years old competing against a world champ,  PD3 will be a bouncer at a casino at 34.   PD3 deleted his own tweet and evidently blocked me.  

    A guy who can dish it out ought to be able to take it.  Oh well, I still like the guy; like his wrestling, honesty and free spirit.

    Downey beat a guy who has zero offense by nearly the virtual minimum score of 2-0. I guess it could have been worse, like 1-0. Can't believe he was chest thumping over that win.

    I only remember Heflin from college years.  He had no offense then either, but kid was tougher than nails.   He beat or challenged guys who I thought were better.

    There is no such thing as an easy win in WTT best of three.   Always chest-thump-worthy.

  4. If you want to assign blame in that match you'd have to go frame by frame.    This is harder to figure out than two kids fighting in back seat of a car.   There was nothing thugish, it was a fight that got out of hand.    I see Heflin is on twitter apologizing for any part he played in the nonsense.   Good for him.    

    Some people are overreacting.

    I thought I-Mar looked as good as I have ever seen him.  He was a lot more dynamic on his leg attacks and re-attacks.   Plus his upper body game has always been good.  I don't think that he beats JB, but I feel much different than previously about him potentially taking over when JB retires.

    I think Askren said on one of his podcasts that JB said IMar is greatly improved the past year and he is taking him very seriously.

    He wasn't the one who refused to shake his opponent's hand

    Actually it was Heflin that refused to shake hands.   You'll see on replay.

    I didn't see anything particularly dickish in this match.   Just guys doing a lot of clubbing and rough crap. Not good, but nothing nuts.  They were both fighters.

    I'm impressed!   I thought for sure that you would suggest that I attempt an anatomically impossible act with myself.

    Nolf in his debut at 74kg looked pretty low body fat. 

    He also looked a little smaller than all his opponents, unsurprisingly.
    But it's not like  he is tiny.   He'll add a couple pounds of muscle and be perfect for weight.

    I just cannot believe there isn't an espn or a cbs that wants to televise this stuff.  Makes no sense.  I feel our product is good enough to be getting paid for the rights to show them.  If we could just find a painless way to teach our fans how points are scored, this thing is ready to run I tell ya.


    I like the enthusiasm of the Flo guys.   But when they shout into the microphones my wife comes into room and tells me to turn it down.   

    Well, guess I can't blame Flo for all of my domestic problems.   But they have technical details to work on.
