    I repeat he said: "Every foreign guy here..." Why do you need to use the word FOREIGN when talking about your opponents at the World championships?

    The only reason the word FOREIGN exists is to point out a difference from NATIVE. Round vs square. Fast vs slow. Get it? So, who was Native at the World championships at Kerr's weight?

    Do you need to specify that your opponents are from other countries when talking about the World championships?

    No, it is not required, but it doesn't have to be. it is an descriptive expression of who he was facing.

    No, he was not Native because he is not from China and he is just as Native there as everyone else. That is my point.

    Since you cannot wrestle yourself, why would you even use foreign again I ask?

    Are you bored Big? What does it matter to you? Is it a pet peeve? Did you get called foreign as a kid?

    Big, I will let Jake know you were disturbed by his choice of words.
