Randori done properly IMHO is one of the most efficient ways to develop Judo and real skill. IMO, and Judo is not without strikes by the way.

Am I reading this right? The debate is basically Eastern wrestling vs. Western wrestling?
Isn't that klind of like arguing night stick vs. tonfa?
Nightsticks are obviously superior. There's a reason why Police use Nightsticks instead of shitty tonfas. It's rounded edge, unlike the crap tonfa flat ones, gives it a streamlined edge and balance making it aerodynamically superior.

Do Judo, learn to fall, show respect for all no matter what level- Work hard, lurk here, volunteer at the dojo, give back to the program, and be humble and open minded.
One of the flaws in this reasoning is that there are many, many women participating in judo. Perhaps fewer in wrestling but that was in my day.

So if we could have USA Box, Judo, Wrestling, and then USA MMA!, BOOM we are DONE! Anyone know if someone is working on a USA MMA?
Vaguero, you are so right about the reasoning flaw. I know a few 105 lb'ers that can throw 250 lb men. It aint pretty, but gives them a chance to run away...which is my preferred strategy to larger people or smaller people with lots of skill and conditioning.
For self defense, I'll take judo over wrestling. Both are good and this part of the country is rife with wrestling. I've done both.
Not mentioned in this thread is that, with a little variation, many judo techniques can be made more dangerous that what's allowed in competition or safe for randori in the dojo. Some techniques have been removed from the judo syllabus over the years due to injury. At least for shiai.
We have a kids class, 'judo for wrestlers'. Lots of young talent learning judo techniques to up their game. They're taking the time for a reason.
Still crying about the rule changes in judo for attacking the legs.

This is certainly true of wrestling as well, from standing or the ground.
