And just because he hasn't been competing in wrestling doesn't mean he hasn't been working on it. I've heard numerous reports of him getting on the mat with Kurt Angle pretty regularly when they were both with the WWE.
I didn't say his shots where horrible I said none of them have been great. And IMO to take down another great wrestler you do have to have great technique and set up your shots well two things Brock hasn't been doing.
Doing something in training is different then doing it in a fight.
Messing around with Angle isn't the same as Couture being in gyms with top notch wrestlers every day training.
