Default Why do wrestlers shake/flick their hand during a match?

So I just started wrestling & I went to my first off-season tournament,as I was their I was watching a senior wrestler(I know it isn't a mistake or him something stupid because he's a 2x state champ) like flick/shake around his hands as he was wrestling,kinda like what people do when they have water on their hands,can someone explain why he did this?please & thank you (:

It has do with loosening up their wrists, and keeping them loose. The wrists are perhaps the most important joints in a wrestling match, without them you couldn't apply holds and throws very well. It's vital that the wrists are kept loose and flexible. You will see competitors in other forms of hand-to-hand combat sports do similar motions to loosen their wrists and keep them loose and flexible.
