2017 WTT
« on: June 10, 2017, 03:28:00 pm »
Well it is Dake vs Burroughs and Taylor vs Cox.  Both Taylor and Dake had tougher matches than I think most supposed.  So there will be a bit of fatigue on their parts.  Retherford ran through his bracket. 

Should be an interesting 2 of 3 tonight .

Any word on the Cox knee situation?

This would be a pretty dull forum if people only said what they should say.

Freestyle rules are garbage and getting worse. Horrible.
I always bring my hips to the party.

I actually like them.

Which ones are you objecting to? Did you prefer the old clench and the best of 3 periods?

You like a bunch of equestrian judges making arbitrary calls to decide who wins a world title? Criteria? C'mon. Wrestling is not that complicated. Everyone who thinks this sport is going mainstream and people are gonna walk in off the street and watch matches are stupid. It's not for everybody and it never will be, in any recognizable format.
