Recently I've put some focus on match times of various events and noticed how much different the average time for matches can be from the match time scheduled. This got me wondering about how wrestling can evolve or what it can look like in 5, 10, 15, 20+ years.

1. Looking at average match times (I'll post some numbers later) it would make sense that shorter matches can occur.

2. Passivity/Stalling can be addressed. I've made some comments on other threads about how to achieve this.

3. It's been a few years since I've watched World's Strongest Man but I'm thinking that's another direction the sport could go. WSM has different events for different muscle groups. Wrestling could have leg clinch, par terre, upper body clinch circa early 2000's, etc. Basically, situational drills.

4. Going to a regional format similar to the Little League World Series. Not this year's LLWS however.

You are out of your mind. This set of rules is probably the best set of rules in my lifetime and I am 35. Better than the marathon 5 min period era, 50x better than the ball grab era which was complete trash wrestling. I for one am not the biggest fan of the push out points but honestly most guys do t really go for them the way they did 15 years ago where guys would pick a single up and drive a guy out of bounds(takedowns we’re just 1 point in that era). 2-3 minute periods and a time to talk to coach for 30 seconds. Guys gotta be in shape unlike Musukaev and Gazyumov
