    Alton rode Russell for about 4 seconds & Russell couldn't do any better until the last 15 seconds where he seemed to be just hanging on. Russell had a much easier time with Thorn & Kennedy, (though one could say that Kennedy got caught & in a rematch it would be different). That would make me think that Alton would move up in the rankings & Thorn would drop.

    Novachkov won the Midlands over Kennedy by injury default. I have no idea what the score was when that happened. I think Nauman had a good showing @ Midlands as well.

    So do these results put Nauman & Alton in the top 5? Top 3? (They should meet btw in 3 weeks @ Rec Hall which I wil probably be blogging.)
    Actually the match with Novachkov never happened. Not sure how serious it is, but they never started the match.

    I see from the bracket Russell had another 1 point match a match or two earlier in the tourney so who knows what wrestling him close means. Besides, Russell is streaky. He has had two seasons with some very good results but what is his highest finish? 7 or 8?

    Russell has a switch, and for the life of me I don't know why he doesn't just flip it the whole match because he is an unreal talent.

    Not saying Russell could have blown Alton out, because I don't think he could have, but Russell has a tendency to wrestle these types of matches.

    The thing that I took most away from the Russell Alton match was this: Alton was able to escape from a pretty elite rider. I dont think many thought that would happen including myself.

    All that wrestling w/ DT probably paying off.

    Russell rode him decently after the TD, though.

    Bingo. When he wrestles with a sense of urgency he looks awesome. Otherwise he just looks kind of boring.

    According to some Michigan posters, Russell and Grajales are 1-1 in challenge matches this season.
