OK, so I haven't watched a wrestling match in person since Gene Mills and Mike Rotunda at Manley, so this may be a silly question.

What is the referee checking for at the beginning of the match when the wrestlers hold out their arms and the ref feels around their shoulders and under their arms? The only thing I can figure out is they are looking for some sort of slippery substance that would increase their chances of escaping. Is that right?

I think any wrestling videos out there of a Brandon Aviles from Long Island are NOT the SU lacrosse commit. The wrestler is older and went to John Glenn HS.

Skin check for any cuts or lesions but that ref does a lousy job.
