Wrestlers today are like pitchers in Major League Baseball.   

The coaches (managers) call in relief (subs,  backups) all the time and seemingly for just about everything: broken fingers nails, headaches, dodging better opponents, etc.

I hear you, but I don't think it's quite that bad yet.  Otherwise you'd have a different wrestler (or more) each period.  Then if you were ahead with less than a minute left, you'd bring in your "designated staller" to finish out.  I grew up playing a lot of baseball in the summer, and now I can't stand the game.

"Designated staller" That is hilarious!

Imagine how many matches we see where the wrestler leading by 1 late in the third gets subbed out for a fresher body, who's sole objective is to deny scores

This sounds fun.
