They are scary good, just plain scary.

RBY has decided wrestling isn't exciting enough, and has decided to incorporate pro wrestling moves into his matches. That was a straight up hurricanrana, and I don't even know what is real anymore.

Does the visiting team get to set the match order? This was the first dual I've ever watched that didn't go in weight class order. I'm also curious as to why you would want to go in a different order than the norm.

It's not just the visiting team, as far as I'm aware, if a coach wants to randomize the match order then it happens. Cael likes to start at 125, so he has never asked for a random order as far as I can remember.

You'll see this happen more often with teams who may have a guy early in their lineup who cuts a lot of weight. Minnesota did this with Ethan Lizak last season in pretty much every dual I can recall.

Why is that? Is it to give him some time to bulk up a bit after the weigh-in or something?

It just gives them extra time to rehydrate. Every minute can count when you're on a one-hour weigh-in.

Besides I believe the Lehigh 133 pounder who was #8 was out, were their any other first teamers missing?

They were missing their 125, 133, 149, 165 and 184.
