OKST and Lehigh don't value it at all.I guess it depends on how much one values keeping oneself in bounds as a wrestling skill. It’s not high on the list IMO. Folk by miles.
Keeping matches in the center = fewer stoppages = more continuous action = more scoring.
But even if one doesn't like the pushout: how does Wrestler A score if he has no responsibility for keeping himself in bounds? All he can do is prevent Wrestller B from scoring.
