That is an interesting take on the best of 3 rule. I think it creates more stalling than it prevents. I think there would be a bigger emphasis on turning opponents if the score accumulated.

I don't like last point winning either. What would happen if first point won the tie break? Wouldn't that cause the other wrestler to be more aggressive quicker and lead to more action if he knew a simple takedown didn't win it? Wouldn't he try harder for turns or a a second takedown if he knew he needed it? I don't know if it would or not, just asking.
