#5. The Refs Are Often Telling the Wrestlers What Moves to Do Next
When you see the ref talking to the wrestlers, he’s not offering warnings or stern reminders of the rules. He’ll call out the next spots (moves) for the wrestlers if they need a reminder, stop matches from going too long, and make sure the match has the right flow. Sometimes a decision may be made to change an outcome in the middle of the match – the ref can then jump in and do a quick count the next time the designated loser hits the mat.
