Now with some matches under my belt, no longer a beginner, but still learning. Really enjoy freestyle, but any style is negotiable. A little experience with sub, a little with pro, though I've had a great time with some guys who love pro, and I get the appeal more and more. Willing to mix up the roles in pro, so nothing's written in stone. Looking for wrestling basics: grappling in semi-competitive matches, rolling on the mats, trading holds, putting you in them and being put in them, playful grappling, sweating. I'm a rookie happy and willing to learn from more experienced guys with no attitude and nothing to prove. Competitive? We can talk. Not into serious pain; this is supposed to be fun. Longtime swimmer, now a regular at weight training, newcomer to yoga work, biking, and hiking when the weather permits. I have some endurance. Down the road, I'll have increased flexibility and strength. Don't travel a lot, but I might be in your area. But if you're ever in the Northeast, let me know. Nice guy on and off the mats, but more aggressive than you might think. Feel free to drop me a line. Friends are great. I've got plenty of other diverse interests.

I knew from a too long exchange of on-line trash talk that Mainewrsl was going to be a formidable challenge on the mat. I was right! After a couple of encounters, he has proven to have the muscle to back up his attitude after he's gotten in your head. Taking him on, I had to be at my best, even if it wasn't always good enough. A gentleman and scholar off the mat, watch out when he gets you ON the mat. For a hot, fun time, Mainewrsl is definitely your man!
In a word, Tommy is a blast. His psychological warfare is backed up with his muscle, and he delivers on both counts. He outmuscled me, and when I dished it back, he just kept coming for more. Our back and forth matches are among the most fun I've had, and the fact that we are evenly matched means that we never know who will be the victor. With an opponent this much fun, who cares? Highest recommendation.

Had an enjoyable match with a Mainewrsl. Great exchange of holds, particularly scissors and bearhugs. Don’t let his scholarly, highly intelligent persona lull you into complacency. He’s got a fire burning in his belly and is a fierce competitor. Enjoyed conversation after our match. Looking forward to Round 2!
Mainewrsl is a nice and good fighter with solid experience and strong scissors. He also has an adaptive wrestling style easy to learn and get along.
Mainewrsl is a great guy all around to wrestle!
What a great wrestler! Forget the "Loserboy" name – LB has killer scissors, and if he gets you in them you're a goner. He's got really great instincts in the ring and is a patient teacher. We had a blast going back and forth for two hours, trying out holds and making each other submit. I got a few submissions in but not many because LB is way more skilled than he lets on. And we laughed a lot. LB is serious fun, so if you're in Montreal or he's traveling and you can find the time to take him on, do so. Looking forward to round two . . .
it was a pleasure meeting Mainewrsl and wrestling someone almost exactly my height and weight–not an everyday occurrence. He has very good aggressiveness, strength and flexibility and we had a really good workout. He is also a person of quality and enjoyable company. i recommend him wholeheartedly.
Demetrios and I are evenly matched in weight, so we had a great one-on-one match on his mats. Demetrios is very skilled in freestyle, and he was a knowledgeable and patient teacher in introducing me to the finer points of defense. It's a pleasure to learn from an enthusiastic and smart wrestler. Great company besides– icing on the cake. Highly recommended!

Had a blast rolling with Mainewrsl. While our size difference presented some challenges for him, he maintained his wonderful, positive attitude, never giving up, giving in, or backing down. He cheerfully took a fair amount of punishment, and really pushed his own limits. Just as important, leading up to our match, during our four hour roll, and continuing into dinner afterwards, we had the opportunity to bond and form the basis for what will surely be a great friendship. An extremely nice guy. I recommend him highly and get wait to roll with him again.

Forget the name – this guy is way above average. Joe and I had a great fun afternoon rolling and grapplng in his great set-up: lots of back and forth, though his weight advantage let him get the upper hand in submissions. Joe is well known for good reason: he's strong, skilled, and a lot of fun. Meet him and get ready to move some muscle . . .
Great guy, had a fun match with him, he is a great wrestler, dedicated, strong, nice body....also just a plain good guy to hang out with...have stayed in touch over the years...want another match when we can make it happen.
A great guy to wrestle – Txwresl is strong, quick, muscled, and tenacious. He has very solid skills and makes sure everybody has fun on the mats, dialing it up and down as needed. And he looks great in pro gear. We wrestled a while back and really need a rematch.
Mainewrsl is recommended by atwoodfred
Had a good time boxing and roughhousing with Mainewrsl. He's a hard-charging guy, always on the attack and coming back to dish out more. He gets an A+ for aggressiveness. I enjoyed getting to know him and hope to meet him for more.

Introduction to boxing with AWF! Despite his modesty as a boxing coach, he knows more than he lets on, so I now have some basics of sparring and throwing punches under my belt. You'd have your work cut out for you trying to get AWF to let up because he has endless reserves of energy. I gave out long before he did. And he's the nicest guy you could meet besides. It was great sparring with him, and I look forward to more lacing up with him in the future.
Mainewrsl is recommended by dcgrappler
Great guy with loads of stamina and fun disposition. Highly recommend this wrestler for those looking for a good time. Looking forward to our next match!
dcgrappler is recommended by Mainewrsl
Grappler is a ton of fun in a match. He's strong and skilled, has plenty of gear and looks great in it, and has a really nice set-up for wrestling. We went back and forth, and he went easy on me. If he'd gotten serious about taking me down, I would have been a goner. Next time we get serious; I want a rematch. And he's interesting and gracious off the mats. Highest recommendation.
Mainewrsl is recommended by nhgrappler
Have met Rob several times over the years. He loves to wrestle and always brings his A game. He says he's a novice but don't be fooled by that. Give him a chance and he will turn the tables on you quickly. Great guy both on and off the mats! I highly recommend him.
Mainewrsl is recommended by joewrestler
Mainewrsl is a great guy, fun and very enthusiastic about wrestling. We habd a great match up – with plenty of pins, holds – good struggle for control. Aside from being exhausted from traveling in from overseas and a full day work conference, Mainewrls still met with me and made sure I had a good time. Great guy on and off the mats – I'm sure we will be having more matches.
Mainewrsl is recommended by riwrestlebuddy
Mainewrsl is a blast on and off the mats. Do not be fooled by his size gents. He's strong, tenacious, a quick study and just keeps coming back for more.
Fiercely intelligent and terribly witty. Always a wonderful match and I am proud to call Rob friend. Very highly recommended.
riwrestlebuddy is recommended by Mainewrsl
Everything you have heard is true: Riwrestlebuddy is wonderful competition on the mats. He is tenacious, ridiculously flexible, strong as an ox, muscled, and very fast. He's also a great, patient, and very knowledgeable teacher; I learned more about wrestling moves, attacks, and counterattacks in one afternoon with Daniel than I did in a year of having matches. Plus he looks great in gear. Off the mats, he is gracious, funny, and utterly charming. My best matches, bar none. HIGHEST recommendation.
Mainewrsl is recommended by dc wrestle
Don't pass on the opportunity to wrestle Rob. His energy, quickness, and agility present a fun challenge. Also, as others have commented, he looks great in his speedos. Off the mats, he's engaging, smart, and a gentleman. Highly recommend!

Joel is seriously fun on the mats. He's got strength, moves, and plenty of stamina. I had to work constantly to get the upper hand – not that I minded in the least. Very nice, intelligent man off the mats. Tough competitor on them. And he looks great in gear. Wrestle him if you can!
Mainewrsl is recommended by dadwrestle
At the very last minute we were able to fix a meet, and I certainly had no regrets! Although there was a considerable weight difference, we had a great to/fro bout, exchanging holds. Don't be fooled by his size; this is one strong, feisty lightweight!! He has a good, firm, well muscled physique, which he uses to good advantage. Off the mats he is intelligent, interested and interesting in his conversation. He also has a a fun sense of humour! What is there not to enjoy? 100% recommendation! I hope we get to meet and wrestle again!!
dadwrestle is recommended by Mainewrsl
I met Dadwrestle on short notice in London – and am very glad I did. He's big and tough, respectful of limits, and knows his moves very well. I had to work to get any kind of submission, and he made me submit over and over. Nothing more a littler guy could ask for! Highly recommend, so meet him if you can.
Mainewrsl visited me this autumn for a weekend, and we had fun on the mats and touring the Lake District. I'm heavier than him, but he's no pushover and we had a good match. He looks good in his trunks too. I hope he comes to see me again next time he's in England, and I hope to visit him sometime in the USA.
UKRassler is very skilled; he knows how to adjust to an opponent's ability (he's more skilled than I am), and he will give you a run for the money. We had a great set of back and forth matches. Really, seriously nice man off the mats as well. A great wrestling experience.
Mainewrsl is recommended by Rassle4Fun
Rob and I challenge each other for some time, but once we met, I knew he is a great guy on the mats as well as a nice guy and a true buddy.
We strip to our speedos and lock for a good sweaty match, fun to wrestle, and he wrestled back to make me struggle to pin him and make him submit, but always getting back at me to make me earn his very HOT body. I could not just lay down my effort because he turned the tables on and worked me over a couple of times before I recover my upper hand and let him know who was the boss...
I have to say, I am looking forward to wrestling Rob again when I come back to ME because was FUN and HOT and he is a great guy on the mats and off the mats.
Rassle4Fun is recommended by Mainewrsl
Rassle4Fun is a blast on the mats. He's bigger than I am, so even though I could fight back, he overpowered me and made me submit multiple times. He's big, strong, respects limits, and looks great in gear. His recommendations–and the fact that there's a lot of them–speak for themselves. If you can meet him, do so; you're in for some fun.
I had been talking with this guy since I had been discharged from the hospital following the blood clot I was struck by in 2013, hoping that one day we could meet in person. And this finally happened two years later when he was visiting the UK. If he could go there so could I, and we finally met in London for a hotel wrestle.
Although he was a bit short and light for me and both of us generally jobbers it was nice to wrestle him, for in spite of his size he was remarkably strong, probably from being a swimmer for many years, so unless I made use of my weight advantage we had a quite even match. I had a very good time with him, both in and outside our match, and I am looking forward to our planned serious meeting in Maine next year.
Had a great time with Mainewrsl. Very good workout and a super nice guy to boot. I hope to meet him on the mats again.
Nominally a jobber, but given the chance he'll become a vicious heel. Very nice guy on and off the mats. Meet him; you won't be sorry.
