but i do agree, restarts are ridiculous (saku/smirnovas anyone?)
but thats the price you pay when you take away the DIVING TURTLE takedown, and just shoving someone into the fence and looking for an elbow to cut and win.
i wish there was a way for them to fight on like a 50 foot ring, with so much room, ropes and cage walls wouldnt bea problem
