Well after watching SnyderMan's match, I got pretty concerned. I know that he slipped and that slip "probably" lead to a takedown and a turn. But then he promptly got thrown to his back. Now huge props to him for being able to battle back and win, but my concern is that he got scored on like this in the first place.
This match makes me think about Burroughs in 2016 at the Olympics. Many people think that he just had a bad day, which may have been the case, but I also had it in my mind that Burroughs was out there promoting this and that, and I think his training and preparation suffered. So now that Kyle has signed with Rudis, and who knows what else, I worry that he may suffer the same fate. Hopefully this match serves as a "wake up" call and Kyle can take steps to keep himself on track.
Now I will say something that will make some people scratch their heads after reading what I just typed, but I do believe Kyle will have a much better result against Salas the next time they wrestle. But Salas is not Sadulaev and who else might be out there, so hopefully, I am over reacting and SnyderMan has it all under control, or like I said above, he fixes any possible issues.
