The art  of wrestling is all about trust. You’re letting someone throw you around and turn you into a pretzel, there’s a certain level of trust needed. Who do you trust more than a friend? Also, there’s more of the desired, almost dancelike pace that good wrestling matches have when bouts are between friends.
