There are many ways to win a wrestling match and for this reason, it’s important to understand the rules of the sport. A wrestler can win by pinning or forcing his opponent to submit; a pin is when you get on your opponent’s back and hold them down for 3 seconds. Submission is when one wrestler taps or shouts “I give up.” To make sure you’re aware of all of these rules, refer back to our guide on how to play wrestling.
