    Default Karelin Match

    Dunno if this one's been posted before. Karelin's strength is just unreal, he totally wears his opponent down from standing before going to work on top at 3:00 of this video.

    feel free to post more Karelin videos, or any great greco-roman matches!

    wow, everytime I see a Karelin vid, I am amazed at what that dude could do. he picked up Pittman with such ease, it was like me picking up my son.

    Is that the same Craig Pittman that was a pro wrestler?

    Man, as soon as he gets that first TD, turn out the lights.

    Usually when you see throws you are thinking...... cool. With this guy you are thinking, "is that guy okay?" I also like the way he picks him up, wanders to the middle of the mat to throw, so he gets to lift him, and pile drive him.

    I would have grabbed his legs.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    I've watched this video a hundred times. It never gets old. Too bad there is such little footage of him. I know there are more videos of his matches out there somewhere.

    Damn, that's the first time when I saw Karelin doing other kind of 5-pointer than the reverse belt lift! Very nice video!
