John Wolfboy vs. Ethan Andrews
John Wolfboy (5'7", 135 lbs, Pennsylvania)
Ethan Andrews (5'11", 165 lbs, Wisconsin)
Total Run-time: 22 minutes, 22 seconds
John Wolfboy is the new guy to beat. But Ethan Andrews has been the long-time champ. Both men possess tremendous strength, agility, and flexibility. Watching them stretch before a match is like watching an especially powerful yoga practice. Ethan is especially centered in his practice. The initial faceoff is a thing of deep respect that quickly turns aggressive.
NHB grappling tends to be free of conflict. It’s simply about two bodies testing one another in the truest form of wrestling. But sometimes little additional aggression does appear in matches. John and Ethan go at it almost like sworn enemies. The struggle to gain an advantage is never easy, as both men lockup and roll, strain, struggle, and never quite succeed in getting the better of one another. Many attempts to gain an impactful hold might be peppered with light slaps, faces grimacing bitterly, and occasional laughs and chuckles that feel almost sadistic in nature.
Finally Ethan manages to wind his feet and legs around those of his opponent, sapping John’s strength and stamina. Even then, nobody taps, and both men have to finally break apart to reassess on another. John taps his chest, challenging Ethan to come for him. Feet drive into necks, and both gifted grapplers are left breathing ragged breaths of exhaustion. They both struggle to their knees and drive into one another full force, skin slapping with frustration and intention. It is a full ten minutes before the first tap out! This is an epic battle for the fans of true determination in wrestling!
