I ran into a scenario at a match I was reffing that I'm not sure how to handle.
Two JV wrestlers checked in to the table. Wrestler A walked onto the mat, then wrestler B's dad came down and pulled wrestler B from the match.
I was miffed, so all I could do was raise wrestler A's arm.
Wrestler B's dad then wanted wrestler B to wrestle someone else.
Here's my question - once they've checked in, has the match has officially started? Can that wrestler immediately wrestle someone else, or are they subject to the 45 minute wait point at that point?
Luckily, wrestler B's coach solved the problem by not letting him wrestle, but I'm curious as to what the ruling is.
