    To me, that match looked a lot like a teammate who was letting his lesser-skilled teammate get some experience in. Of course, with Bubba's flakyness, it's hard to tell if he was attempting to be a good teammate or if he just didn't feel like trying...

    Regardless, I think DT beats him comfortably now.
    Am I cool now?

    Thorn pinned Marion last year only to give up the major to him the next time they wrestled, then Thorn majored Marion the third time. So, past results are not always a good indicator of future results.

    Yes. If anything, we should expect the outcome to be the opposite in the next meeting anytime a beatdown occurs.

    Not so sure I ever said that Gold. I'm just saying that past results isnt always an indication of what will happen in the future. If it was they wouldnt wrestle the second match.

    BTW, I think DT will beat Dong the next time. Just speaking generally above.

    There's a pretty decent chance that Adam Hall will get the #1 seed because the All-Star exhibition does not count toward seeding. Hall will probably finish the season undefeated and he's the highest returning placer, beating Fittery in the consolation semifinals. So, if that happens then Taylor could lose to Fittery in the semis. It would be unfortunate in my opinion since they have been the most impressive wrestlers at 157 by far this season, but you have to seed consistently and objectively.

    I'm vacillating back and forth between picking Fittery or Taylor to win the title, and I'm sure I won't decide until after seeing them at conferences, though neither one will be challenged on their current trajectory.
