Atrophy: what you get when you win atournament.
You should ask Brad Penrith to show it to you.
I was very surprised to see a video of my wrestling hero brent metcalf getting pinned with a spladdle
Nick Simmons used the spladle as his signatue pin. He also used choke holds and is aka the east lansing strangler. (Michigan State in East Lansing, MI). The spladle was once described to me as a combination of a banana splits and a cradle take spl from splits and adle from cradle and you get spladle.
I can tell you that move was a round prior to the 70's. I know, I whacked with it from neutral in a tournament in '69 by a Russian that had just transferred into a nearby school. No one had seen the move before including my coaches, one of which had been wrestling since the 30's.
After the dual we asked the guy to show us the move again since he hit me with it so quickly, we didn't know how he set it up. He had some Russian name for it we couldn't understand, so we just called it the Reverse Koshninski, after the kid. Don't ask why we added the "reverse" to it, I think it's because during the transition it's like reversing your opponent.
Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
Lots of quality info on this thread, thanks to everyone for chiming in.
Caldwell is the man @ baiting for that spladle.
I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.
