Thank you all for supporting Dan Puder and watching tough enough. Dan is a close friend of mine and my personal trainer. Although I am 3 years older than him, he has always been an inspiration to me.
Dan trained w/ Frank Shamrock for several years after winning the championship CCS tourny at 219 lbs. I remember watching Dan fold seniors on the mat as a 190lb 8th grader.
Dan got Angle in a nice Kimura lock, one that sriously damages the shoulder bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscle. I give Kurt extreme credit for not tapping on one of Puder's arm-locks, cuz they hurt, no matter which lock or appendage he applies it to.
I was excited when I watched last week b/c I did not expect to see this action on WWE especially after they put those guys through exhausting exercises. Imagine if Dan was fresh??!! His endourance has outlasted all the other competitiors since Day 1 in Venice with the fastest course time! And he did it again with Angle, he made Angle look tired. I want to see a re-match.. Who is with me?!!!
I encourage you all to vote for Dan when the time comes. Thank you all for listening. Take care.
I'm shocked. Christian was one of my favorite WWE wrestlers and I can't believe that he's done. I mean, sure he hasn't been in any major programs lately, but I didn't know he was unhappy enough to just up and leave. Edit: Blah.
