In this video, I try to make the case that Lawler's wrestling, while not poor, won't significantly improve even among the company of excellent wrestlers in Ryan Bader, Aaron Simpson and C.B. Dollaway. Moreover, Kennedy has the ability to mix wrestling with submission grappling, something likely to be troublesome of Lawler.
