This may be one of my all-time favorite wrestling photos.
Anthony surprises Nicky by showing up to the Oklahoma St vs Iowa match.
Nicky pins Spencer Lee.
The moment the refs hand hit the mat, instantaneous pride was sent up the spines of thousands of Section XI fans, but none felt it more than Anthony and the Piccininni family.
After the hug, Nicky says, “I still got work to do.”
I love intense short celebrations, followed by the “I got to get back to work” mentality.
