Side note:. One of the dumbest things I have seen during the pandemic is the wrestlers are not allowed to shake hands before or after the match. They just spent seven minutes grabbing nearly every exposed body part, especially the hands.
If you haven't seen the tweeted video of "the GOAT getting the first takedown" on the new mat you need to find it. I don't tweet and i happened across it, so I'm no help. I thought it would be some fluff thing where coach grabs someone and pulls him down. Nope. Coach and someone I couldn't ID (obviously also a wrestler/former wrestler) get after it in street clothes and socks on the new mat. Suffice it to say John Smith is still a bad man.
