  1. Re: Gatsalov and 13 other foriengers in Iran League

    Who beat Gatsalov..

    Iève noticed that the top wrestlers tend to lose a lot in these league matches (as well as the German league ones). I wonder how seriously they take it.

    Re: Metcalf's Problem International

    To be honest I never saw that many of his college matches, but I agree that speed isn't really one of his strength. I do know that in college he could shoot that cross-body high crotch and finish in...
