It's all scientific. Probably boring to wrestling fans in 2013, but I like minute-long side headlocks and a 45-second armbar. I like competitors classed within a pound of each other--even when the ring announcer cooks the numbers. And I like matches to end with a pinning combination. (I hate matches ending in a draw, however.) Here we have Kevin Von Erich, 22, 6'3", 235#, versus Ron Starr, 29, 5'11", 236#, in a scientific catch match for St Louis Wrestling. I love the interview at the end. Kevin demonstrates the power of his scissors hold on the interviewer. I would stand in line for a demonstration like that.
