Claw-riding Gilman

Recommended Posts

No, not the name of a new wrestling documentary.

 

Apparently the energy it takes to takedown and claw ride someone like Gilman for 5 minutes is enough to completely drain Lizak. Hind-site being 20/20, could Lizak do anything different on top to get his wind back?

 

Or maybe let Gilman up immediately to start the 3rd with a new strategy to keep it close?

Gilman is like Metcalf you need to keep it close and sneak up on him with a big move at the end (else pin him with a quick Jr high move in the first 15s) otherwise don't dare try scoring a bunch of points on him early, your just gonna piss him off and then ... well we know what happens then ... :(

Like other reptiles, the Lizard is cold-blooded. He wasn't able to thermoregulate his body, casing him to fade in the 3rd.  

Eggum usually keeps him under a sunlight prior to dual's beginning.  However, since they started at 149, he lost too much body heat before he went out to face Gilligan.

 

That, and the cheating ref not allowing him to face-up, cost him that match.  If he sees Gilligan again, I think he takes him easily.

but shouldn't rodent reptiles be able to go both hot and cold, else why become a gopher?

How about a bet on that? $500 to Wrestling for Life.

 

This ( "i think he takes him easily") was supposed to come up as a quote from above by hurricane.

The bet is ME betting on Gilman to win in the rematch. The edit is to clear this up.

Maybe that wasn't the problem?

I thought Lance Palmer did a pretty decent job riding Metcalf a few times.  He used to throw in a boot or two and cling to the bottom man's back and hang on, even after he was standing upright.  Alan Waters also had some success riding Thomas Gilman this way before the infamous slam.

 

Is it still possible to throw in boots and cling under the current rules, or is that whistled now?

So, you're saying Thomas Gilman drained the lizard on the mat? Lol
