And at a minimum they need to make the standing ride a call for neutral. Keep the disadvantaged wrestler down and I can agree that you have to have been a wrestler to understand it. But if you let the guy get up and all you are, essentially, is a zit on his ass, well I have HUGE issues with that.
And back to the holding on to an ankle while you get dragged, and that's worse...
And last, you get one chance to have the circle's edge save you, after that it's fleeing... I get the tactic, I used it, but it's wrong and not a good thing.. Reward the guy who stay in the middle and invites a match, and penalize the guy who's willing to run out of bounds to save his ass..
Agree 100%. Holding onto the ankle and being drug around is stalling. No ifs ands or buts. There are some wrestlers out there that are tough riders and a hammer on top. Always looking to score. It's a slippery slope. As a former wrestler I want to see our sport survive and thrive.
Good commentary GloryDaze.
