Thread: Burroughs vs Askren?

  1. #1

    Default Burroughs vs Askren?

    I am hoping Chael knows of what he speaks. I assume it would be folkstyle b/c Askren has said repeatedly that he doesn't like freestyle rules. I just hope it's true.

    Midlands is folk I would imagine.

    From what I gathered last year, they gave both wrestlers the opportunity to decide what style. Askren wouldn't agree to FS, so Herbert finally agreed to folkstyle. I am assuming that they will get the same opportunity to decide this year. I have no idea, though. I am just hoping it happens.

    JB just posted on his twitter "I hate to burst everyone's bubble, but I'm not wrestling Askren at Midlands." So much for that...it would have been fun to see!

    Askren would get smashed.

    Agree, you can't funk steel.

    Yeah, must be why Burroughs won't take the challenge. Askren hasn't been smashed by anybody in folkstyle since 2004. That includes 184lb NCAA Champs Herbert and Max Askren, and runner-up Kish. No doubt Burroughs is better at freestyle, but Askren is folkstyle king. Too bad we'll never know, since Burroughs isn't interested.

    Herbert and JB couldn't be more different stylistically. If you look at the Pendleton matches you'll see that Pendleton was too explosive and solid at finishing and had no interest in scrambling. Sound like anyone we know? I'd argue that JB is an upgraded CP.
