    suck up

    Dear all,

    In a wrestling program, a trainer says to a wrestling trainee who trains with another one "come on, you don't want to get sucked up"

    What is the meaning of "to get sucked up" here? Is it "got beaten" by the other man?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: suck up

    In this case, it means to have your rival (who is probably weaker than you) catch up to you.
