thank you man
Is this kid the real deal?
I watched some of his matches and didn't see anything outstanding about the kid. He's good, but I don't think he is the real deal yet nationally.
I know that, but from watching that match I can't understand how. That kid he was wrestling looked terrible. Show me a match in which he wrestles someone good. By the looks of that match, I would think Mangrum would beat him easily.
That 2nd posted match was better than the one I watched earlier. Finally did something from his feet. And rides well but doesn't look for a turn. Just looks like he uses it as a way to stall out.
Thats fine if you think Mangrum would beat him, but to say that "he's not the real deal nationally" is idiotic. Even more so than dubbing Henry Cejduo a bust after not placing in his first Senior World Championships as a 20 year old.
Mason hasn't lost for almost two years in folk, and has won Junior Freestyle the last two summers. He's a beast, it may not always be pretty, but all he does is win.

Actually my Cejudo post was quite right because he didn't win a match, thus a bust.
It was legitimate question, like my other one. Because after watching the first match I saw of him, I couldn't figure out how that kid even wins matches. After the 2nd one, he looked way better. However, his riding skills aren't that impressive as I've yet to see him turn anyone. And he simply uses it as a means to stall and not really work for a turn. Like you said, doesn't look very pretty. I hope he can work all those kinks out once he hits college or he won't be that much nationally.
