Thread: Wrestling Superlatives: Who's The Best At What Move

    Few more...

    Arm bars: Ruggirello (Can't believe I forgot this one originally)
    Freshmen: Russell, Reader, Lewnes, and Sponseller (Get the feeling that 65 is going to be fun in the coming years)
    Pure athlete: Jenkins
    Quickest: Gillespie, Poeta

    Trying to think of a "Lady Luck" award, last year had he won it, that definitely would have gone to JH, had all these close matches through out the year, and always just won. No one like that has really shown up quite yet.

    Metcalf goes to his back a few more times in big matches but keeps winning, might wind up being him.

    Oh Jensen....so angry!

    It's not by luck that he wins. JH was having those close matches, Metcalf isn't.

    However, I might soon have to give Dustin Schlatter the coveted "Spike Lee 'Sideline Spectator' Award."

    Jenkins didn't look like much of an athlete when Metcalf was running over him. Redefine athlete.

    Ohhhhhh lawdy Jensen done said da wrong thing. I'm not saying that out of bitterness, its just an observation, that I stuck in just in passing after originally not having anyone listed, just kind of came to me, that hey, maybe Metcalf will be that guy.

    Last year, JH in an absolute meat grinder of a weight class won quite a few matches with late takedowns, and on riding time. This year, in an absolute meat grinder of a weight class Metcalf has been on his back several times early in matches, and has come close another time or two, but since it happened early, he got off his back, and wore the guy out and beat him.

    I haven't seen all the matches where he's gone to his back, but the fact that its always happened early in matches, and he hasn't run up against any over anxious official who wants to punch guys out quick, seems to have a measure of the lady luck watching over him.

    I realize that its damn near blasphemous to say anything that even could be remotely construed as critical of Metcalf, but this is ridiculous.

    smth, I have my definition of pure athlete, Jenkins fits it, I don't have to redefine anything. If you've got someone else, by all means, contribute it.

    Whoa, Jensen, come down off the high horse. It was a joke. Note the emoticon.

    Last year, JH in an absolute meat grinder of a weight class won quite a few matches with late takedowns, and on riding time. This year, in an absolute meat grinder of a weight class Metcalf has been on his back several times early in matches, and has come close another time or two, but since it happened early, he got off his back, and wore the guy out and beat him.
    This was a joking thread, not a substantive one. I disagree with your assertion of similarity by the two situations, but that is not for this thread, I don't want to hijack it further.

    I haven't seen all the matches where he's gone to his back, but the fact that its always happened early in matches, and he hasn't run up against any over anxious official who wants to punch guys out quick, seems to have a measure of the lady luck watching over him.
    See above. But as a quick throw in, he had one ref who wanted to slap the mat, against Caldwell.

    I realize that its damn near blasphemous to say anything that even could be remotely construed as critical of Metcalf, but this is ridiculous.
    Once again, it was a joke. The ranting is unnecessary. Hell, I even threw a joke award in to my response.
