    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Haha, I didn't realized that sounded like a Fureyism. In any case, their strategy is more like "submission from any position"?

    I've done some research into Catch Wrestling, interesting stuff. Lots of pain compliance and rough stuff. The trouble with training catch is those guys get injured, alot. Bret Hart tells stories about guys coming to train with his father Stu, and the screams you would hear from the basement. Stu was an old time catch guy, and a damn good one by all accounts.

    Whiteshark is right, catch wrestlers try to finish, all the time. Position is not a big concern for them, take their back and they look for a leg lock. Tony Cecchine is from Chicago and is the guy to see in the US. Matt Furey is reportedly, not so good.

    Catch was used by the carnie wrestlers/strong men back in the day. All those, if you can last 5 minutes with the mangler you win a hundred dollar type challenges. The catch guys would make the rube scream uncle nice and loud so there were no disputes about who won the money. As to where catch comes from, there are a ton of stories. Some say england, others say it goes all the way back to egypt. The bottom line is it works. Though being tapped by a BJJ black belt, or a good hooker ends up the same.
    Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?
