I was the opposite from most here; I would jump rope and stare at my opponent and think about how badly I was going to hurt him. I wanted to humiliate him. I thought about making him bleed and that made me smile. By the time I walked out on the mat i was so angry and full of adrenaline that the poor guy never stood a chance. Most guys wanted to pin their guy, I thought the best win always come from an injury default. Lol. Maybe you can think about beating him up on the mat, but not to the extent I used to.

Now that I'm 38 and wrestling the "masters" levels, they're all good guys and we're out there to have fun. we have our son's in our corners and we talk more than we should on the mats. quite the contrast.
