            By all accounts he was a massive asshole and was a bully in the 1980s, but he was well-respected in the wrestling locker rooms, so nobody messed with him and he's admired today because the wrestling world was built on bullies

        yes but Karelin was a freak who didn't look like other wrestlers. Wrestlers are almost all manlets, helps with their leverage

          That's just normal height distribution. It's true for almost any sport where height doesn't constitute an advantage.
          Is height an advantage for wrestling when they're separated by weight class?
          I think height is a plus in heavy weights but you're a 6ft2 wrestler in a weight class with an average height of 5ft8, you're not losing because your height is disadvantaging you, you're losing because you're probably anorexic.

            because weight is still the decisive factor. As far as I know, no sport has "height" classes so are you saying height is irrelevant in all sports? It seems pretty self-evident to me that a shorter person with a shorter range of motion can generate more leverage in a wrestling situation, all else being equal

              No, I'm saying that in any sport, such as basketball, where height doesn't carry a clear discernable advantage, such as golf, most of the athletes will be "manlets" because most of the people that can possible train in this sport fall within that height range.
              Just like there is a negative aggregate correlation of height and income. There isn't one in fact, it's just that taller people are fewer and less likely to end up in high earning position.

              Imo, a 5ft8 264 pounder would definitely be disadvantaged against a 6ft4 264 pounder because of his height provided both have the same technical skills and the shorter wrestler can generate more leverage in some tight "niche" situation.

              cont'd
              The average height of champions the 264 pound class is nearly 6ft3, there are like only two outliers who are 5ft10 and 5ft11. They're like 2 standard deviations away from the average height of champs in that class.

    Wrestling is great for whole body hypertrophy and high school wrestling teams are meat grinders where only the elite come out without broken bodies and depression

        if youre just getting worked every day after school (for most of the year and all of the summer) and over each weekend for a few months, you'd be pretty broken and depressed.
        And if you're a shitter and you keep costing your team points, they're going to go harder on you at practice.

    because they have to make weight so they cut like crazy but they're not boxers so their sport demands more even physique.
