A couple of years ago I witnessed a match where I thought the referee would have been correct to stop the bout.
One wrestler had slammed the other and lost a point as a result. The wrestler doing the slamming actually appeared more dazed than the other. But I think that was illusionary.
When action resumed there came a series of bonecrushing double legs TDs by the wrestler who had been penalized, I think three in total, followed by immediate cuts. Each time the wrestler who had been slammed rose to his feet when cut and faced his opponent, but seemed defenseless to the next straight on blast double. After the third cut, I was alarmed and was forming the thought that this has to be stoppped.
Fortunately the coach of the wrestler (who was also his dad), yelled to the ref and signalled that the ankle band was coming off. He was forfeiting.
My question, could the ref have ended the bout ala a boxing ref? Or could the ref, on his own initiative, have stopped the bout with both wrestlers on their feet, to have the one wrestler looked at. I don't know that I have ever seen it and wonder if it's in the rules.
