Why are international wrestlers so bored?

Recommended Posts

Is it my imagination or are the World Cup competitors fairly listless before the match and after?

 

Compared to a big dual meet in college or the finals of a tournament, the wrestlers seem almost bored. A guy like Metcalf, who seemed fierce (if always a bit robotic) at Iowa, looks like he reporting for work at the auto plant at 6AM. No one even seems particularly happy to win. Where is a guy like Dake stalking the mat and leaping in warmups?

 

Is that just the international style-- too cool to care-- or what?

I think it's just the International style and the team dual concept. I was there yesterday and it does seem robotic. However, I think that's because all these guys have maximum respect for each other and let their wrestling do the talking.
