Wrestling Under Ground

Recommended Posts

From what I'm seeing here I guess not many people watched? I guess there wasn't a super big name draw for this one.

I don't think the matches were all that different due to the cage.  A couple time guys couldn't finish a lace/gut but the takedowns came a little easier for some.

The biggest issue here seemed to be the size differences. Watching Berger vs. McKenna was comical. I still thought McKenna might win but he just couldn't really finish.

Gwiz dominated. Brooks looks like he might be good in an octagon.

I didn't get a chance to watch but heard there were some good matches.

There were a lot of high quality photos recently posted on their facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/WrestlingUG

I guess you could argue for or against the cage, but it certainly seemed like the cage made singlets look out of place.  Really hope the 2 piece trend continues, and good to see a couple of the top level guys wear them.   Also of note is that I'd say one evidence of the "growth of wrestling" is that we even have multiple wrestling-focused apparel brands several of which were featured in these matches (Ruids, NearFall, TakeDown, ScrapLife)

I think the cage absolutely did play in to the McKenna-Berger match. Berger was just too big and not being able to play the edges to his advantage did cost McKenna.
