When four year olds Isaiah Lineberry and his opponent stepped onto a wrestling mat in Pennsylvania, parents and spectators in attendance had no idea they were about to witness what could go down as the most adorable wrestling match ever. Lineberry quickly begins to run from his opponent after the match starts, and hilarity ensues.

Lineberry’s mother joined ABC News to discuss the situation, saying:

“I asked him afterwards, ‘So why did you run?’” Isaiah’s mother, Alexis Salyers, told ABC News. “And he said, ‘I don’t know, Mommy, but it was silly.’”

“He knows what to do,” Salyers said. “He just let loose and the entire crowd started busting out laughing.”

“He’s wrestled in several tournaments since then and has been in the top four placements in them,” she said. “It was just that one fluke match.”
