Jesse Mendez Wrestling at Flo’s Who’s #1 event.

Recommended Posts

Jesse will be defending his #1 ranking... hopefully in Carver Hall.  The Viper pit looked like a cool venue, but I think Hawkeye nation will have way better attendance... plus are family and friends won't have that far to drive.  We are so pumped about this.

Best of luck to him. I was told by a good friend a couple years ago to keep an eye on this kid named Jesse Mendez. Was told that he is the next 4Xer and could possibly be the best ever here in Indiana. I always take that with a grain of salt, UNTIL his routing of everyone last year. His display that he put on at state was something special to watch and confirmed what my friend had told me. It’s truly a treat as a wrestling fan to witness something like this. The last person that I recall that was just this dominant was Jason Tsirtsis. And he very well could be even better than TShirts when it’s all said and done. Go get’em kid.

J.tsirtsis lost multiple times and had close match vs Devon jackson who's a 3x under the lights finalist(this takes nothing from his accomplishments and i'm splitting hairs here) .Jesse hasn't hardly given up any offensive points if any yet ...Angel Escobedo and Alex Tsirtsis were the most dominant I've seen next to mason parris... Lance Ellis ws ws decent too😂..but I'll say this Jason beat #1 nationally ranked guy as a freshman and no other guy can say that ...but then again Jesse is #1.

In my opinion how that match played out was a great turning point match for Mendez rise to a state title.  I’m sure he knew he had the ability to take on the best in the state, but the course of that match put his feet to the fire enough to solidify that.

Jesse was scored on 4 times. Dalton Huffman got a takedown, Ethan Kaiser got a reversal, JJ Conway got a takedown, and Watts scored on Jesse in the semi finals. 

Jesse’s only match against Serrano was the win at Akron(7-7 criteria win).

that shows how tough some in state kids are to actually go after him as well! scary part is that he gets better every time.

Mendez reminds me of Ben Whitford and has some Nolf in him as well.  He is not bothered by being taken down as he wrestles with so many attacks and seems to try new moves in matches.

Can we take another minute to talk about that throw tho.....

 

Absolutely nasty.

But also, could somebody who knows freestyle better than me explain how Serrano only got 2 for the lat drop?

Basically it wasn't feet to back, they were on their knees. Basically the same as a gator roll.

I don’t like the 4 way deal. Did CJ Red like that too, and didn’t like it then. If Jesse is one... let them other dudes battle it out and winner gets Jesse (like Final X).

Thoughts???

I don’t have an issue with it. Granted in this scenario it doesn’t help Mr. Mendez but it will provide him an additional opportunity to showcase his skills vs a quality opponent. Having 4 also eliminates the “what if’s” for wrestlers who had a “legit resume” to be there as well.

My thought is awesome, now I can see him win twice.

I think it’s cool to have your 4 top guys battle it out, also love the new wrinkle of highest seed getting to pick the style of his choice should be interesting hopefully he can keep that #1 spot.

We love the idea. Gives Jesse a chance to avenge a loss from last year at Super32 to Jack and then wrestle another amazing wrestler at same event. Giving Jesse a shot at 2 extremely tough matches in one day is totally worth it.  

Side note: Willie asked Jesse if he was ok with making it a 4 man bracket and he said he was down to wrestle anyone. It is definitely the hardest way to defend his ranking, but I am really excited to hopefully watch him wrestle twice at Carver Hall.

Hector @Sig40 if you would have said that Jesse's response was anything else other than this I would have asked @Y2CJ41 to check into your account for it getting hacked because knowing Jesse I know there was never a doubt or question in his mind other than this answer.   Great kid and he makes all of proud to say we know him man !!!
