(from Webb Weekly, March 24, 2021) When asked about what has changed in the sport, Muthler said it was not any tougher now than in the 1970s, though it is certainly more sophisticated. “Wrestling now is more technical. There are more moves; there is more scouting. Back then, we didn’t have videos to watch of our opponents. People are also training year-round now.” Muthler wanted to be a fighter pilot and later went on to study aviation at the Naval Academy. After flying several different aircraft, he ultimately settled upon flying helicopters. He later flew with the marines in Beruit, was deployed to Kosovo twice, and flew as a Life Flight pilot.
