Thread: Luck in Wrestling

    Default Luck in Wrestling

    Possible interesting topic for discussion- how much does luck play a role in wrestling sucess? A lot has been made of Jake Varner's "luck" in winning Olympic gold. How about others? The clinch arguably increases the element of luck, but there have been wrestlers in fortunate and unfortunate circumstances before. Think of someone like Elbrus Teedev who is a 4x world Olympic champs, with 2 of his titles involving protest wins. Even the great Saitiev had several close, controversial victories (2x over Gaidrov, over Williams, over Murtazaliev at home) during his reign at the top.

    When 2 guys are very even, I would say luck plays into it probably 30%. When 2 guys arent even, I would say its less than 10%
