No Holds Barred: Eddie Goldman and Scott Casber on the New Era in Catch Wrestling, on Takedown Radio
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman was once again interviewed by Scott Casber, the host of Takedown Wrestling Radio.
Our main focus was the recent developments in this new era of the revived sport of catch wrestling. This discussion took place on Takedown Wrestling Radio and was recorded Tuesday.
But we first opened with a discussion on the tragic passing of actor and comic Robin Williams, who wrestled in high school and had wrestling remain an important influence in his life.
We next moved on to discuss the most recent great advances made this year in catch wrestling.
First up was the July 27 catch wrestling tournament at the MMA World Expo in New York, presented by the Snake Pit U.S.A., and especially the near-20 minute marathon final in the absolute division between 314-pound Nick Caggia and 148-pound Phil Caracappa, won by a pin by Caggia in overtime.
Next was the victory of Josh Barnett over Dean Lister at the Metamoris 4 grappling event in Los Angeles on August 9, where he used catch wrestling to dominate and submit Lister.
We also discussed the state of catch wrestling and what the people in this sport need to do to achieve even greater advances.
And we previewed the Liberty Bell Classic / King of Catch Wrestling Tournament, presented by the North American Catch Wrestling Association and Scientific Wrestling, which takes place Saturday, August 30, at Primal Gym, 231 Bakers Basin Road, Lawrenceville, New Jersey 08648, as well as discussing other topics.
