Austin Cooper (5'9", 190 lbs, Virginia)
Ethan Andrews (5'11", 165 lbs, Wisconsin)
Total Run-time: 21 minutes, 12 seconds
Lean and lythe Ethan Andrews returns to his roots in a no holds barred grapple fest. As he stretches, bends, twists, and contorts his legendarily flexible frame, one can’t help but marvel at his incredible elasticity. His opponent, bald and beefy Austin Cooper — once a Hollywood pretty boy muscle-jock -- has blossomed into an impressive, mature heel with a thick, muscular frame. He may not have Ethan’s elasticity and flexibility, but he’s a powerfully built grappler.
Strength is nothing compared to speed, and all too soon Austin finds himself sleepered from behind by Ethan. As he gasps in Ethan’s python grip, his face turns red, earning Ethan his first point. Austin practically grinds Ethan into the floor to gain his own first point. An early tie inspires Ethan to clamp his long, lean legs tightly around Austin’s neck. They scramble to gain position, flailing to secure a lock. Ethan looks like he’s trying to climb a mountain as he struggles to get his leg over Austin’s broad back.
Ethan is pulled into a gloriously painful spladle, one that tests every last bit of his flexibility as he’s pulled tighter and tighter into the agonizing and humiliating hold. Austin is ahead, but how long can he keep it up? Two wrestlers with very different bodies in an honest wrestling match that leaves both men invigorated for the next one.
