Those of us who actually watched that match know it was a VERY close match prior to Woods finding his way to his back.    Some people just insist on making false statements here.  Apparently they have nothing better to do with their time.

If the match only lasts 30 seconds...it's, "not close.' what else is there to say?

That would be true. However, this match lasted a shade under 5 minutes and was scoreless until the final move. That's pretty close

That's super close, unless Real was getting dominated  : )

Probably tighter match.  Woods got 2 more matches in but more importantly 2 weeks to get his lungs

How much improvement in conditioning do you expect in two weeks?

It depends why he had lung issues before. Was it related to nerves/getting used to a match? He hadn't wrestled in a year or something. Since then, he has had a couple matches.

Was he wrestling live all season, or only started right before his match? an extra 2 weeks of live wrestling if you've only had a week makes a huge difference.

Lots of other scenarios too. Conditioning is strange and can sometimes just be tied to how you slept, your nerves, what you ate that day, etc. Real doesn't have a history of gassing, but he also doesn't take breaks from wrestling so who knows

I'm pretty sure the TD to his back were the first points of the match.  Not close is a bit misleading.

It was 2-1 WIllits - He had about 2 minutes of riding time - He locks up the cradle with about 35 seconds left in the second round (That's 4:25 into the match) - If he doesn't get the pin he is leading 6-1 and has locked up riding time - so 7-1 going into the 3rd round and he would have selected down.

How confident are you that Willits takes the rematch?  You have him getting AA this year?

The rematch will be close and could go either way. Woods will obviously be more prepared. However,  Pendelton called it when he said everybody would talk about Woods being out of shape, WIllits getting lucky, etc. ....rather than the fact the Willits is much improved and wrestled a good match. Willits' only two losses have been to Brock and Hart. He is an R12 guy sitting on the bubble of AA in my opinion.

Good take...if he beats Woods again and then loses to Demas, he has a couple of winnable matches on the backside and would have to beat Parker or Sherman (probably if seeds hold) to AA.  Winning that first match is critical for him because it presents an easier path to AA.

That is an absolute beatdown.
