A long overdue recommendation: MKell and I go quite a way back; we’ve had a couple of matches — tough, enjoyable, safe. I’ve still have to beat that beast. His size and weight is formidable, but I don’t want to make excuses. For some reason I always remember wrestling him when a snow storm raged in Massachusetts outside the window. MKell is a storm to be reckoned with for sure.
I am not sure how to write a good review that would do this awesome man justice. Wrestling him was so amazing. He was not only big and strong but also well-experienced. He knew his wrestling technique and how to handle his opponents well. I was overpowered by his strength and skills but I made him work hard (I thought so). Luckily, I made him tap once. Besides that, he was a great teacher giving me pointers, showing me some moves.
Off the mat, he was so kind, friendly, gentle. We had a really good conversation and a wonderful time. Thanks for meeting, wrestling and having fun with me.
Do not miss the chance to wrestle this great wrestler.
Kg for kg (lb for lb) one of the strongest wrestlers I have wrested, even though the lightest. And a tough one to boot. One moment of carelessness and I found myself tapping. Contratulations! I meted out my revenge, and then some, but I continued being impressed by this juggernaut of the lightweight category. His legs scissors feel like those applied by someone 25kg heavier. Outside of the mats, a genuine, kind, ambitious, accomplished, and humble man. It was a true pleasure and honor to spend a few hours in your company. Thank you.
WrslMscl is recommended by sleepermuscle
Great guy on and off the mats. Very fun match trading holds back and forth. Just the right amount of intensity for me in a pro match. Very easy to roll with and if wrestling is also a visual experience for you then you won't be disappointed with this good looking guy with a great physique! Definitely ready to roll with this stud any time the bell rings!
sleepermuscle is recommended by WrslMscl
Sleepermuscle, sizewise, is a perfect opponent for me – slightly heavier than I am, he presents just the right challenge to make the victory sweeter.
A good combo of competitiveness and playfulness. And even when pinned down or a second from being submitted, he loves flexing his big biceps – a big bonus! Perfect higiene and manners. Highly recommended.
So glad we had a chance to meet and wrestle. Very interesting man and definitely highly skilled. He wasn’t feeling 100 percent when we wrestled but he was game and we had a good time. Would definitely wrestle him again.
Big and strong. And stubborn. Extra stubborn. Let’s say this was just a friendly sparring session to assess the opponent before the full-out battle to establish the Alpha. I know I will have my hands full, and my work cut out for me, but I am looking forward to the challenge. You should too.
pghwrestler is recommended by WrslMscl
We wrestled a long time ago, but not long enough for me to forget the experience. I was a novice, and this guy was experienced and tough; I was building my body, he was flexing his rock-hard muscles as he taught me some technique and submitted me repeatedly. Yet I enjoyed the experience tremendously. He motivated me to become a wrestler. Thank you.
WrslMscl is recommended by Italwrestler
WrslMscl is a strong and knowledgeable opponent. Great skill level and very strong as well. He's a great guy as well, which makes it all the more fun. Would definitely like to wrestle him again in the future.
Italwrestler is recommended by WrslMscl
Broad, powerful tank of a man — just the kind I like to take on, and take down! Solid technique and a lot of power; had a great time tangling with him. Unfortunately, because of circumstances, we could not have a real and long match, but I hope it happens next time we meet.
WrslMscl is recommended by grapple musc
WrslMscl is a great competitor, very strong, fast and skilful, and also a really nice guy with a fun spirit and I enjoyed our time on and off the battlefield. I learnt loads of new moves from him and would recommend him without hesitation.
grapple musc is recommended by WrslMscl
It’s hard to find fault with this dude — built like a bear, cool as koala, courteous as a genuine British Lord. If I had to find one, I guess it would be... that he still loves football (that’s soccer for you Yankees) more than wrestling. Therefore he’s prone to resort to kicking his way out of trouble. Fortunately, he tries not to kick his opponent/training partner where it hurts most, but the danger looms. Once he recognizes that the oldest sport in the world is king, he’ll be one of ours. Highly recommended!
2017-09 - Great match with WRSLMSCL. Despite being in the evening and both of us a little tired we had an intense fight of sweat and in none of the two rounds we were able to define the strongest.
Although when I toke advantage on him the agility and strength of WRSLMSCL did not allow me to end the match as winner.
A nice person out of the mat with whom it is nice to spend an evening in the restaurant talking about several things.
Antonman did everything in his power to make my stay in Italy comfortable. Except when we were on the mats – than he turned into a beast determined to defeat me. Well, he did not manage to do so; it was a draw, with neither one of us getting any submissions.
He is super knowledgeable on a whole gamut of topics and a very interesting conversationalist. Thanks to him my understanding of Italy, Italians, and Italian improved greately, as did my wrestling skills. Definitely, a full package. Thank you.
WrslMscl is recommended by Dogfighter5
After many years of coordinating and patients our time finally came and battle it out we did! Every positive thing that has been I will second! Great wrestler, fantastic muscle, warrior mind set and overall gentleman! Highest of recommendations!
Dogfighter5 is recommended by WrslMscl
Dogfighter5 has a big bark, but he backs it up with a solid bite as well.
We built quite a competitive tension before finally locking up close to his turf. He kept attacking; I kept keeping him at bay and countered effectively. A very enjoyable match with a high quality wrestler and a real gent. Will give him a rematch any time!
I was lucky to meet Glenn as one of the very few serious wrestlers on the circuit. He tought me the ropes. Whenever I'd face him, I knew it would be a tough battle, but also a productive one – he has a very good technique and is a great and patient teacher. I am thankful to him, and proud, that I can fight him now as an even opponent. Listening for that gong that will let us lock up again...
One of the most skilled wrestlers I faced to date! Very strong, great looking, and able to utilize every muscle for breath taking holds! Always safe and in control, he is a great opponent for any skill level. Highly recommended!
WrslMscl is recommended by Jsubwrestler
This wrestler’s solid rep preceded him and I have to say it was backed up in person, he was tough and strong, and his experience made him a formidable but also safe and fun opponent. Nice guy off the mats as well, also communicative and easy to schedule with, accommodating—definitely a positive experience and an opponent I would recommend to others.
Jsubwrestler is recommended by WrslMscl
Unassuming, slightly shy, introverted, but just wait till you try to get through his guard! When fighting Jake seems to have ten legs, and he knows how to use them! At 150lbs, he can take on and defeat guys much bigger. He has not defeated me, but I am sure our rematch will be a tough one, with its result far from certain.
In addition to the strong, lean, muscular body, this guy has plenty in his head and talking to him is a real pleasure. Emphasis on real, as he's equally allergic as I am to small talk.
WrslMscl is recommended by natureboyesq
Polish power! Matt is crafty, strong, and an all-around great competitor. He met me with a smile, arranged the room to make sure we were going to be safe, and then we got down to business. We're about the same size and had a great matchup with the right mix of trash talking and respect. Just don't try to talk to him about baseball or the "World" Series...
natureboyesq is recommended by WrslMscl
This gent renewed my faith in crossfit; he's a living testimony to its power. Only because his technique is raw did I survive this battle. Inexhaustible energy; impeccable hygiene and manners. No ego trips and no b.s. After the bout, he spoke warmly about his pooch. That pooch is the luckiest of all creatures.
Had a fun time with WrslMscl, he is strong, skilled and intense. I enjoyed going at it with him and look forward to another go round! Nice guy too.
WrslMscl and I tied up during his stop over here in LA! From the moment He opened up the door I knew I was in for a fun match! Playful & determined, it was great to tie up again and again with this guy! He made me feel at ease right away and was quite the cordial host...until he attempted to pounce on me...once he did that...well let's just say I had to "take matters" into control!
Had a blast and enjoyed WrslMscl greatly!
Looking forward to round two and some point, hopefully soon!
Great meeting that lasted about five hours. As soon as I opened the door, I felt like a dwarf (and I am not necessarily a tiny guy), but I was telling myself that I could tire him down and then pounce on him to get a few submissions. But once I found myself in the crossfire of this dude's giant, rock-hard arms and legs, I realized how wrong I was. Erik is a faithful crossfitter and I am a new believer in the awesome results of this training system. Go after him, if you're feeling powerful and/or cocky, but be ready to get your body and your ego bruised.
WrslMscl is recommended by Syrwrestler
We had a great match together. Only had an hour to spend but it was a sweaty, intense work out. WrslMscl is strong and has good stamina; good solid legs too. I look forward to another "session" with him!
Syrwrestler is recommended by WrslMscl
This guy is solid – very strong, packed with impressive muscle, and a good technician; very hard to flip. I think we both enjoyed our, what we agreed to call reconnaissance session, and are stoked for a full competitive match on mats. Highly recommended!
Flexingpete is recommended by WrslMscl
Pete is a man of rare power and ... hospitality. We wrestled years ago on his home turf and will not forget that match ever. It was a multi-faceted encounter filled with great food, wine, stimulating conversation and even more stimulating physical competition of two stoked males. I remember his bathroom was painted red – and that was perfect. A rematch opportunity can't come soon enough.
We worked ourselves up for a while before the match, and it was a real pleasure finally locking up and vying for alpha rights wit a stud like WrslMscl. No unnecessary drama before, during, or after and a good, long, sweaty battle. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
WrslMscl is recommended by wrestleflex
we had a great time together. he is very disarming with his quick wit and funny jokes. when it was time to wrestle he certainly got me in some spots. but an overall great time. i enjoyed it. highly reccomended
wrestleflex is recommended by WrslMscl
Have you ever tried moving a refrigerator? I have.
Have you ever had the refrigerator put on some quick and effective wrestling moves on you? I have. And I am glad I survived. Although wrestleflex outweighs me by about 80lbs, I enjoyed wrestling him. He's a true gentle giant who can turn on – or off – his impressive arsenal of skills as he wishes, and keep it safe the whole time. Anyone looking for a serious – and mounting – challenge should contact wrestleflex.
WrslMscl is recommended by leanmachinetn
WrslMscl is a powerful wrestler, muscled stud and great guy. What else can I say!
leanmachinetn is recommended by WrslMscl
This recommendation is overdue; wrestled leanmachinetn one hot summer that he made even hotter. Sweat was puring from both of us, but the machine never stopped functioning; the more sweaty it got, the more it functioned like a well-oiled piece of machinery. A memorable night of man-to-man competition.
We had only half an our to battle and we made the most of it.
Short and intense, both of us eager to beat the other quickly, we went at each other like two stags on a National Geographic special. Coming soon to a TV near you. Hoping for a rematch to exhaustion; and I'm planning on winning it.
Impressive meet as if it were yesterday!
Short chatted and keeps word, as well as it be should. Eagerly awaited, has assigned many heavyweights in the barriers. A genuin man, very strong built and a skilled wrestler.
Hardly arrived, we started to test strenght and stamina of the other as warm up before we laid out on the mat. We gave us nothing, sweaty as we were and rolled. It was hopless, Matt could counter with his submission highlights. A completely balanced fight to our liking with hightest challenge and on large level.
Top man, top fight, top recommendation! Ready to a rematch !
What a great opponent! Easy to set up a meeting with, keeps his word, and ... has the mats ready when you arrive. We were so eager to wrestle each other that we began pushing and shoving and looking for an opening to attack in the hallway of his appartment, when we were still in our street clothes. And when we changed into singlets, and then to speedos, the battle was on – full speed, full force, and full throttle! Berber is better in freestyle, I am better in submission, so we both had to make adjustments, but we were happy to do that, since our match was based on a total man-to-man respect. After shower, over tea, we locked arms in a spontaneous arm wrestling tug of war, and I am proud to say I managed to take his big long arm down to the table. Berber is a fierce comptitor, and a kind and gentle soul. I am happy he was my Opponent Number 90. The highest recommendation. And an always-standing challenge to a rematch!
WrslMscl is recommended by beatdowntime
This guy is the real deal- strong, really built, and a skilled wrestler. He's also one of the most decent guys out there. If you're into taking on guys who are pretty much the total package, look him up. And although he lives in Chicago, he's got an element of Eastern European hotness to him i find pretty irresistible.
beatdowntime is recommended by WrslMscl
Beatdown def deserves a recommendation. We've known each other and competed for the last 15 years or so. No matter if it's in NYC or Ft. Lauderdale, this dude is a formidable foe who knows how to mix in a lot of fun. A master at using his long, powerful limbs to clamp down on his opponent. Highly recommended.
WrslMscl is recommended by Wrestleperson
Alas I used to have a great set-up, but no more. I loved grappling with Matt, and I thoroughly enjoyed the suffering he put me through in return for my efforts. When I first saw his muscles in person I was actually kind of terrified, but he has a generous, worldly, warm personality that puts you at ease (before the grappling starts). Anyone who likes to wrestle will have a great time with this awesome man and wrestler.
Wrestleperson is recommended by WrslMscl
Just noticed I have not written a recommendation for this awesome wrestler; my bad. We've been wrestling for years. He has a great mat setup at his place and steps onto them proudly to defend his turf. One of the most flexible fighters I know – really hard to submit. Strong muscled body. Pure wrestling joy. Our next bout cannot come soon enough.
This muscled and worked out stud was quite a lot to handle!! He is strong, tough, skilled, and definitely knows what he's doing. We had a grueling and pretty aggressive match–all good fun and definitely a great workout. He's aggressive, but safe and respectful. Highly recommend.
I have not written this recommendation for a few days because I was sore after our gruelling match; still am. We had a tough, competitive match that left us panting for air and glued to the sweat-soaked "mats." When this wrestler says in his profile he has had some training, you should read it as, a lot – and he remembers a lot of it. Our agressive attacks against each other were muffled by the nice thick coat of hair he wears proudly on his torso. When I was getting ready for the match, I thought that for a fighter named Toro, I'd need a cape and a sword. And that proved true; any matador challenging him needs a cape of strength and a sword of technique.
Go for this bull of a fighter, guys; if you dare.
WrslMscl is recommended by Subwrslrnyc
M was really fun, aggressive, and muscly. Loved trashed talking him while I was making him tap–nothing like beating and taunting a stronger guy. We had a rough sweaty time. Fully recommend.
Subwrslrnyc is recommended by WrslMscl
Subwrestler is totally chill. He has that sweet, languid, innocent air about him, that easly lulls his opponents into believing they will not to work hard wrestling him. Wrong! Once the serious competition starts, this guy is still chill, but also focued, fierce, and fantastically effective – both in attacking and in defending. Strength much beyond what his weight would indicate, coupled with lightning speed. He likes to emphasize he only swims and does a few pushups. We had a good battle – I am glad I could keep up for most of it, and get a sub or two. It was not enough. Eager for a rematch. Highly recommended.
This lad is definitely worth wrestling if u pass thorough Chicago. He's strong fit muscled and pretty competitive. It's always great to wrestle a lad who knows how do use his legs too - very powerful. Off the mats a great conversationalist and fun to hang out with. Don't miss him.
Perseus definitely does not need another recommendation, but he sure deserves one. I thrive on international matches, am competitive by nature, and love the physical struggle between two males, and I could enjoy all of that with this guy. He is very very very hard to submit, but does not like to count submissions; wrestles just for the pure joy of wrestling, and can do that for ages. It could be his 30lbs+ weight advanatage, or... wait, I think it was his accent that got the best of me. Yep, it was definitely the accent.
Modest, kind and courteous, but just wait till he takes off his shirt – furry pecs for miles, and strong arms to boot. We hit it off right away and rolled like there was no tomorrow. For some reason, I think he did not use all his power against me. I hope he was saving it for the next time, which I hope happens really soon.
Awesome time meeting this guy
Had a great sweaty match in Atlanta
Why the heck Bones?! There is nothing bony aboout this guy; pure prime Midwestern beef, and in large qualities. One of his pecs could feed a family of six for a week. He was the "smaller guy" (just a modest 250lbs) in my crazy challenge of two superheavyweights. Extremely quick and strong, Keith can dial it down a little when fighting a middleweight like me, but my hopes for a sneaky sub of this beast disappeared quickly. He is not one to concede anything for free. Totally real, he has my total respect and full recommendations. (I secretely hope he will run into someone his size who will kick his muscle butt, although that doesn't seem likely).
WrslMscl is recommended by Guyntheshadows
This guy is a true wrestler in my opinion! My match with WrslMscl was indeed interesting, entertaining and a workout which I surely needed! He knows and has methods to make sure your muscles and your mind are completely relaxed and ready to go. Do not underestimate him as I did for he is strong! He knows grips and grappling moves too. Very intense match I had with him! Verbal talk included too. I hope I have upgraded a bit more in my skills from our match. So if you want to learn a thing or two, get beyond physical aspect, get some verbal action, then a match with WrslMscl should do it.
It was great to finally meet up with WrslMscl! Guy is real tough and fun to roll with! He travels a lot, so if you're lucky enough for him to be your area...try and set up a match with him! But make sure you bring your A game when you do!!
My 15 lbs of weight advantage were useless agains this guy. I thought I'd be able to sub him with one hand tied behind my back. Wrong! Once he started using his vice-like legs, there was no hope for me. Managed to get a couple of subs, but those legs were lethal and merciless. Other than that, a friendly and good conversationalist, with a good sense of humor. Recommened for guys who like challenges.
17 July 16. Met matt this morning. Super nice guy and easy to get on wish. Great wrestler who is safe and sane. Although he was nursing an injury his effort was never less than 100%. Great match and a pleasure to finally meet.
Mark, one of the legends of this site (just look at his number of opponents) definitely left a mark. All 210 lbs of him. Right on my chest and stomach; and in my memory. A big imprint of fun and friendly competition. He used his weight advantage masterfully, yet stayed controlled and safe throughout our match. If you want a real match with a real man, and a good conversation before and after, call on Mark.
WrslMscl is recommended by Ctgrappler1
Strong formidable fighter that is a blast to wrestle. I really enjoyed meeting this legendary wrestler and can only look forward to more competitive battles in the future. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a tough opponent.
Ctgrappler1 is recommended by WrslMscl
Some guys are just built for wrestling, and CTGrappler1 is definitely one of them. Mix in a serious workout ethic – and corresponding results, stirr in some swag, add a few (big) pinches of aggressive attitude and you have an explosive bulldog on the mats. He's also playful enough and can be tamed to be gentle... All in all, a versatitle, adaptable opponent. Recommended.
Have admired this man's strength and skill from afar for a long time, so it was great to finally spar with him. He made the effort to keep our scheduled match even though he was tired from travel, and getting over a cold. 180 lbs of muscle, mat fun, submission skills, and male bonding. And, among other things, he gave me a much-needed geography lesson.
Evenmatch is a man's man – easy to arrange a match with, keeps his word, follows the agreed upon rules, and – most importantly – gives you a hell of a match and solid competition. I really enjoyed rolling with him. A kind, sharing spirit too; he invited a friend who wanted to rekindle his wrestling interest, and the three of us took turns fighting each other. I am ready to reapeat any time. You should challenge him, if you are around.
Had a good match. This is strong and a great body. He knows his moves and will outlast you. Super guy on and off the mats. Really enjoyed my time with him. Recommend him if he's I your area, or you are near him.
This wrestler means business; he shows up on time and before you know it, his shirt is off. You're facing the dilemma of what to do with that mass of muscle suddenly piling and flexing before you. I decided to step up, attack it and get him tired. It worked – before long the beast was tamed. Well, partially tamed. A great match against a really formidable opponent. Inspiring and highly recommended.
WrslMscl is recommended by Wrestlessnohio
I have to confess that my pre-match due diligence had me concerned over our weight and height difference. Those fears were quickly erased. When our mutual intensities kicked in the match proved challenging in the best sense. Covered in sweat, exchanging submissions, and thoroughly enjoying the camaraderie of wrestling. The bonus is he's an enjoyable conversationalist as well. I even managed to learn a few words of a different language. My only complaint is a common one for us grapplers. That being not enough time. I'll be looking forward to another encounter with this strong, masculine, warm, and kind man. I recommend you do the same!
Wrestlessnohio is recommended by WrslMscl
Who knew? A bodybuilder and a marathon runner had a baby a few decades ago (not sure which one was the father), and I wrestled the fully grown kid recently. In spite of my weight advantage, I had to work very hard to tame the Energizer Bunny; he managed to get a sub or two out of me in the process. Fun and kind and tough – a perfect combo. A guy who can be your fiercest opponent and your best friend; we talked for hours after we were too spent to continue wrestling. And the mere thought of his perectly toned, thick, smooth thighs is giving me the... munchies. Yum.
WrslMscl is very kind to give me much credit but I'll take it! He pretty much had is way though I don't like to make things that easy. I'm not usually too afraid of taking on bigger opponents but I am careful in the matches I choose and have no concerns with him. Recommended very highly by me.
It's been a while since we came to grips with each other, but I do remember I enjoyed it tremendously and I would be ready at the drop of the hat, if an opportunity presented itself again.
Wrsl150 is very strong, muscular, well-proportioned – a compact body that seems designed for wrestling. In spite of my size advantage, he gave me a lot of trouble. I recommend him highly.
WrslMscl is recommended by nature muscle
Wrslmscl is a great guy and fun to wrestle. He's strong with a solid body. He's willing and able to accommodate your preferences during matches.
nature muscle is recommended by WrslMscl
Very srong and solidly built. A little shy, but that makes him all the more charming. Real, raliable, and respectful. Be careful when you awaken the beast within him – his already impressive strength doubles. If he improves his technique, watch out! Eager to wrestle him again at the first chance I get.
WrslMscl is recommended by Dutch Muscle
Had a good bout with this man..wasn't sure what to expect.,strong with an injury and good fun.
Dutch Muscle is recommended by WrslMscl
Long and strong. Herculean body and a hearty sense of humor. His weight advantage, home turf, and my lingering injury tipped the result of this battle to his favor. I will do my best to get a different result next time. Fun, challenging, and totally worthy of recommendation.
Had a great match up with WrslMscl . He is very skilled and in great shape physically as well as being a cool guy to visit with. Our wrestling was very competitive and he was cool enough to offer me some tips on technique that I can continue to improve on. Looking forward to meeting up with this muscle man again anytime I can.
Difficult to take down, hard to unclamp once he clamps down on you, challenging to reverse and flip over. But if you manage to do that, you get all the more satisfaction. One tough cookie, not giving up, coming for more. I'm ready for the next mach whenever he is.
It has been a while since we met but I still remember how strong and skilled he is and how my trash talk got me in trouble with his domination of me. Fortunately he is a great guy and a lot of fun. I definitely look forward to another match. You're going down next time big guy:)
gladiaturk is recommended by WrslMscl
"Strong as a Turk," declares a French adage. It does this fighter no justice. In case of Gladiaturk it should say, "strong as an army of Turks." He tried to roll over me like the Orient Express – all the way from Istambul to Paris. I am not a weakling myself but I stood no chance. Only because of my technique was I able to keep him at bay for a while and end the match in a 2:2 draw. Draws are not among my favorites; itching for a rematch.
WrslMscl is recommended by mascmuscphx
WrslMscl is very flattering, but he is the one who always takes you past your limits. Extremely strong and skilled, you had better be ready for your best match anytime you take on this man. I always learn something from our battles, never knowing who will ultimately prevail. It's the best kind of match, and he has my highest recommendation.
mascmuscphx is recommended by WrslMscl
There are some guys – and there ar not many of them – whom you want to be competing against every day; they just have that uncanny ability to get your juices flowing, to get your muscles twitching with expecatation of combat. Mascmuscnyc if definitely one of them.
We have had our share of battles over the years; they were always super enjoyable and... exhausting. Our first match was preceded by a few "ancient olympic style" competitions as warm-up – from sprint (uphill and flat) to long-distance running; from push-ups to Indian leg wrestling, before we clashed in an all-out wrestling battle. I can't wait for the next one. (And I know that after reading this neither can you!)
Nice guy, we had a lot of fun. He was generous when we did a bit of wrestling!
If your passion is armwrestling, you cannot not challenge this guy. If you got any guts (and balls), that is. He is one of the strongests men I competed against. He trains for armwrestling, and unless you do too, my money is on woodd43 when you dare to plant your elbow opposite his on a table.
Nice Bud ... Thanks Matt,
i had Lot's of Fun - trying to out-sweat Matt,
Matt a Great Person.
Hope i get to Hang Out with Matt - again!
Good People are Refreshing !!!!!
especially now-a-days ...
Thank You Matt for Flying - To Texas (Austin)
One of the strongest opponents I have ever faced. Incredible arm strength, especially. I was able to sub him only once, and mainly due to his lack of formal training. I seldom shy away from a challenge, but here I stopped myself from challenging him to an arm wrestling bout; was afraid he would whoop me. But you guys go ahead, challenge this guy and you will have no regrets.
WrslMscl wanted to take me on because I invaded his hometown - but I did not try to evade him as he may suggest. Instead we had a fantastic fight to the finish. He did come out on top, but not without me giving him my all. A very fit, fun, man to wrestle - I especially liked his trash talk - and he is strong and knows his moves. Next time I may very well get the best of him. But for now he is the champion of Illinois I cannot dispute. If you get the opportunity to wrestle WrslMscl do not pass it up. I look forward to our next encounter - where again I will willfully and intentionally invade his turf!
Brian invaded my turf late at night and didn't even bother to apply for a permit or a visa, so he needed to be tracked down, taken down, and submitted. He was, he was, and – yes – he was. But he is a formidable opponent – musclebound and feisty; I had my arms and legs full. At different points in our match I had a feeling I was drowning in the waves of his pecs and arms, that I had to be extra careful because something like a racing bike was zooming by me, or that I needed to make an extra effort to finish the match, as if I were in a long-distance run. And then Brian says he's an experienced triathlete and it all became clear. Wrestling him was like wrestling three guys at once, I'm glad I survived. Challenge him, if you're ready to be tested.
THE HUNK! when we met and face each other, after so long chating, we knew that there will be a REAL male to male challenge... TOP on TOP competition, and yeah, we got it all! we roll and mix and push, grapple, muscle on muscle, like 2 animal, BEAR vs Gorille. we got kind of same style of muscles, and we sweat a lot... but no male could TOP the other... we stay Locked, in semi gard, big biceps fighting, 2 snakes gripped, and no dominant declared, except the both.. SO we NEED FIGHT again, to see who is the real boss, we SO need that... he is a great grappler and a good guy, you can trust him at all. I loved his war. but I need to dominate this warrior. GRRROOARRRR!
Did I want to fight this guy for a very long time? Yes!
Was I happy to finally get my hands on him? You bet!
Was he as tough as I expected? More!
Did we both enjoy the experience a lot? Yep.
Did we sweat buckets? You know it.
Did we wrestle for more than two hours? You better believe it.
Did I manage to submit him? Nope.
Did he submit me? No.
Do we both want a rematch? Absolutely!

He warned me he was not at 100% and he was still really tough...and just as friendly and personable as all of his other recommendations say. I'm looking forward to any future meetings!

Tough as nails, strong as steel, resistant as kevlar, flexible as a rubber band, this guy can give a great match to guys much bigger than he is. Real and personable conversationalist. Free of anything fake or pretentious. Looking forward to many rematches.
Though dealing with a nagging injury, I could not resist the opportunity to face this guy. We agreed to take it easy, but it got very competitive quickly. He admitted he was closer to 200 lbs, so I had my hands full (and I like to have my hands full of my opponent!). After some stand up jousting for position, I took the hairy hottie down and subbed him twice, but I did not escape his bone crushing scissors. Final score 2:1. I'm rematch-ready!

I have had a couple of meetings in the past with Matt and would highly recommend him. He has a great build and is a talented, respectful wrestler. Off the mats he is graced with social skills and has an entertaining personality.
Islandmusc is recommended by WrslMscl
Before Islandmusc went island, he was regular mainland, 48-contiguos-states muscle. Always outweighing me by 15-20 lbs, he was a great challenge. Our matches contributed to serious climatic – or climactic? – disturbances in the Pacific Northwest. I've been itching to lock up with him for a while now and if I have to cross half of the Pacific to get a hold of him, I will. He's worth it; lei or no lei around his thick neck (or was it around his massive thigh?)
Blitzkrieg is recommended by WrslMscl
Although we met for light sparring only, I have no doubt a more intense sparring, and a full-out competitive match are on the horizon. Solid guy, strong, reliable and bs-proof. I'm looking forward to becoming better friends through wrestling. Don't let him pass you by without challenging him. Thx, mate.

I've rolled with WrslMscl a couple of times over the past few years. He's a spunky competitor and a gentleman. I highly recommend this man to any who want a good match and fine company.

Chuck can choke chuckling. Or laughing. Or being totally serious. His mat prowess and confidence are high, and since he usually has the advantage of his home turf mats, challengers beware. You have been warned. But if you like grappling, you will not be disappointed. Just disheveled and discombobulated.
Good guy who’ll definitely give you a tough match. Good skills, really strong and hard to move around, could learn a lot from him. Nice guy off the mats and straightforward in setting up the meeting as well. Looking forward to grappling again.
A cool, straightforward, no-bs guy whose mat skills belie his (according to him) lack of formal training. Feisty and creative, strong and persistent; he will give a lot of trouble to anyone in his weight class, and to many bigger guys too. If you like real, honest, tough man-to-man competition, don't miss the chance to take him on.
Four months later and he is vasty improved – in strength, technique and confidence. Congrats! I can't feel my left shoulder, my leg is cramping, and I have a collection of bruises and scratches on my body, but I would take this wrestler on again any time. Thank you, mate.

Skills and size to match! His speed switches into high gear and that's when you know all that Cardio you should have done ... well you know haha.. Had a fun match and just plain old good grunting about ! Looking forward to a rematch!

I have always had a weak spot for international matches, so I was happy to take on this Singaporean light heavyweight wrestler, as he was wreaking havoc around North America. Impressive body paired with impressive power; it took me a while to subdue him and take the fighting spirit out of him. Ready for a rematch whenever you are, bud.
WrslMscl is recommended by NorthSideChicago
Matt was ALOT of fun. He's in great shape, good endurance and adjusted his style to accommodate the weight difference - very much appreciated. Hope to see him again.
NorthSideChicago is recommended by WrslMscl
John is a proof that power and energy come in, well..., medium-size packages. I outweigh him by almost 30 lbs (13.5 kg) but he made me work hard, very hard, for each submission I earned. His arms are steel; his pecs hard pillows that he tries to suffocate misbehaving boys with. I consider myself one of them, and this time I was able to escape punishment. Thx, John.
I Matt back in Chgo and had some great matches with him. He's a very skilled and well built guy. Sweet and genuine off the mats. Always a good time.
I am sorry Tom has moved away from Chicago. He is one of the toughest, and most reliable wrestlers I've met. Although I've always had a size advantage, I was forced to give every match a 150% effort to keep up with him. Our battles in his basement were nothing short of epic. Hoping for another one soon.
We wrestled a while ago and its still a very memeorable time! He is knowledgeable on the mat, and we really had a great time! Would wrestle again in a heart beat!!
I wrestled Coach a few years ago – in the basement of his house, on great mats, surrounded by wrestling memorabilia. He definitely deserves the Canadian Heavyweight Champion Title. But now, that he can dipped below 90 kg, I think I will challenge him again – for the Cruiserweight Title. I know the battle will be fierce, tough, and sweaty.

Had been looking forward to wrestling him for quite a while, and it was very much worth the wait. Excellent skills, really strong, and graciously adapted himself to my skill level. Plus, a very good sense of humor! Look forward to another match...

A great skilled guy with a powerful physique and excellent grappling ability - looking forward to future matches with this guy!
WrslMscl is recommended by grapplingguy
Great guy. Good exhausting match. I would love to have next round!
Matt and I have wrestled several times over the past 15 years. He is educated, witty and mature. He is a skilled grappler, muscular, strong and with single digit body fat. Our last encounter was many years ago, when I humiliated and dominated him at a Tampa Wrestling Event in a large mirrored room in front of a dozen other wrestlers. Ever since, he has vowed revenge, and TODAY he got his chance. The result? After a 90 minute session filled with grappling, flexing and arm wrestling, we fought to a 0 - 0 draw! His BJJ skills had improved significantly, and he successfully defended against every one of my sub attacks. I had to settle for a single arm wrestling victory! We are both determined skilled wrestlers determined to claim victory over our nemesis. Who will win? Stay tuned.......
Ditto to all my formidable opponent has said. Wrestling him is always a multi-faceted experience, as for Mariano, just like for me, it is more than a sport and physical competition. We have always competed on many levels and before he would always have a big upper hand. The result of the last match: a draw. I can't wait to take him when the next opportunity presents itself.
Awesome guy, LOTS of fun to wrestle and play with. Very strong man. Loved sitting on his chest and having fun. Love to wrestle around with him again. I got another big bearhug waiting for you WrslMscl!
A wrestler of rare power and thickness – a chest that goes for miles in width and for yards in thickness. He outweighs me by half a ton, but no excuses; I want to wrestle him again as that is the best way to challenge myself. Watch out muscled – next round will belong to me.

Great and very skilled grappler; and off the mat a real nice guy!
After a long time we finally made it to meet for a wrestle and it was worth the time to wait for it!
MisterLegs is recommended by WrslMscl
I have been thinking how I would neutralize MisterLeg's awesome leg power ever since I saw his profile, and finally I had a chance to put my strategy into practice. With mixed results, I have to admit. Main reason: His whole body is powerful and flexible, and he outweighs me by about 40 lbs (18kg). We both enjoyed our high-energy, even match that left us exhausted and panting for more. I hope round two is just around the corner.
very experienced guy, has lots more technique than most - knows his stuff, likes to have fun and can go along with your limits (i have lots of limits) - we have met up at least 4 times over the past few years, and someday i hope to get to his technical level; if we had a better mat space - it'd be great to do some drills/practice to learn some of his things. Very nice guy off the mats, and can talk about all sorts of things.
Yeah, I've known Jorge for a few years now and I value that friendship/rivalry a lot. He has always been a powerhouse and his super-muscular chest and arms are second to none, but now he has added major skill to it; his technique has improved tremendously within the last year. I am almost scared to imagine what it will be like to wrestle him in a few months... But it only motivates me. Kudos to Jorge and his coach, Luis! Also, a highly intelligent and well-read guy off the mats. Getting together always a challenge and a pleasure on many levels.

Our last meeting was 3/24/13. As always, WrslMscl provided great competition and a wonderful match. He's got great speed, strength, and skill, combined with enough (fun) attitude to make it motivating to try to get a submit from him. I think every time I've seen him, he's been bigger and in better shape than the preceding meeting. If he's in your town, don't pass on a match with him, he knows what he's doing on the mats, and is a really good guy off them.
raslinjock is recommended by WrslMscl
Yes, our last match was on 3/24 and the dude almost killed me. Hard to believe but he got bigger and harder since our last meeting. Talking about a perfect wrestler's build paired with low-key level-headed attitude! Perfect combo for a tough match and fun atmosphere. Can't wait for another crack at beating Da Rhino!
WrslMscl is recommended by wrestlruff
Tough. Endurance to take it - and muscle strength to dish it out. A real dude. Rematch for certain.
It's nice to work up a good sweat with Matt. Always a tough match
matt is a great guy to wrestle and a tough competitor. i am ready to take him on again.
Slick submissions from this takedown artist. Quickly fiqured out what I hated the most. Applied it liberally. And in several languages!
Maybe the next time, I can get that head all the way off?

What can I say , I love this guy ! Total gentle man , Great wrestler , Great guy , Wish we had more time together, He is one of those guys you just feel proud to know , I always smile when I think about him :)
A great grappler who knows his stuff and who knows how to have fun. Be prepared for a tough match and a good time. I look forward to round 2..and to counting subs!
One of the few cases when one pic in the profile should not discourage you from scheduling a match. Solid wrestler, hostpitable host, and... ah, yes, did I mention the bod of a Greek god? Turns out, Hercules lives in Corpus Christi now. Looking forward to beating him.

One of the best, no doubt. On both hemispheres, on all continents. Once he gets his long, strong limbs around you, you're in trouble, man. I have a hard time believing anyone can beat him. Looking forward to another chance of doing that myself.

And.. a fantastically ripped physique to boot!

Ok, so here is someone who needs a recommendation really badly, right?
He has enough of them for ten wrestlers, but I want to add mine, since few fighters out there, if any, deserve it more. Joe is a class act – on and off the mat. The only "complaint" I have: He is so modest, he lulled me into believing he was just a beginner. Our clash on the mats proved otherwise. I'm eager for a rematch. You go champ! Cheers everyone!
