2018 World Team Trials- men's freestyle

Great weekend of wrestling here, with Beat the Streets tomorrow and World Team Trials for men's freestyle (seniors AND juniors) and women's freestyle. Lots of interesting stuff, hope you all call in sick from work Friday and can watch some great wrestling. (And if you have questions/corrections/wanna talk about Cuba's 57kg guy or Toghrul Asgarov at Beat the Streets, comment or message me).

Light weights:

57kg:
Final X, sitting out- Thomas Gilman
Finals WTT, sitting out- Tony Ramos
Qualified- Tim Lambert, Spencer Lee, Zane Richards, Daton Fix, Zach Sanders, Frank Perrelli, David Terao, Brent Fleetwood, Eddie Klimara

With Gilman sitting out, Tony getting the bye to the Trials finals, and Spencer Lee not competing, the favorite remaining in the field is probably Daton Fix, the Junior World Champ and Junior/Cadet bronze medalist. I think he gets through this field and faces Tony in a rematch in the finals, a match Ramos won 2-2 on criteria a couple weeks ago. Gimme a rested Ramos to beat Fix in 3.

61kg:
Final X, sitting out- Joe Colon
Qualified- Seth Gross, Jon Morrison, Nahshon Garrett, Nico Megaludis, Tyler Graff, Brandon Wright, Darrius Little

Kind of a weird weight here with Stieber up at 65kg, with the winner at 61kg making their first world team. Colon sits in Final X, so nobody gets a bye to the finals here. Garrett finished runner up at the Open, and he will definitely be in the hunt here to meat Colon. Graff and Gross have made Junior world teams before, so they both will probably be in the mix too, as will Nico Megaludis (who teched Graff 10-0 at the Open). Gimme Nahshon here, but Graff is the best guy on his best day, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins.

65kg:
Final X, sitting out- Joey McKenna
Qualified- Zain Retherford, Logan Stieber, BJ Futrell, Yianni Diakomihalis, Evan Henderson, Jaydin Eierman, Nick Dardanes, Jayson Ness, Evan Henderson, Andy Simmons

Surprise open winner Joey McKenna is sitting out here. I think my biggest take away is who isn’t showing up in Zain or Yianni (Yianni is hurt I believe). Eierman looked amazing at the Open taking out World champ Logan Stieber, but I’m taking Stieber in a rematch here to face McKenna in Final X.

70kg:
Final X, sitting out- James Green
Finals WTT, sitting out- Jason Chamberlain
Qualified- Kellen Russell, Jason Nolf, Kyle Ruschell, Hayden Hidlay, Alec Pantaleo, Dylan Ness, Ryan Deakin, Frank Molinaro, Griffin Parriott

Sneaky interesting weight here? Molinaro and Russell have made world teams, Pantaleo and Deakin have made a junior team, Hidlay and Ness have made NCAA finals, and it would be great if Nolf shows up (which he won’t). I’m going to take Frank Molinaro to get back on track here and beat Chamberlain in the finals.

74kg:
Final X, sitting out- Jordan Burroughs
Finals WTT, sitting out- Isaiah Martinez
Qualified- Nazar Kulchytskyy, Vincenzo Joseph, Tommy Gantt, Dan Vallimont, Jake Sueflohn, Quinton Godley, Evan Wick, Carson Brolsma, Taleb Rahmani

I wish these Penn State guys would show up so Cenzo could wrestle IMar again, but instead I think Nazar takes the challenge tourney. Tommy Gantt has looked pretty good I think recently, so he’s another guy I’ll be checking on this weekend.

79kg:
Final X, sitting out- Kyle Dake
Qualified- Jon Reader, Zahid Valencia, Alex Dieringer, Josh Asper, Mike Evans, Nate Jackson, Ben Harvey, Stacey Davis

Sorry to Jon Reader, if I don’t get Zahid vs Ringer in the finals here I won’t be excited. That’s the match I’ve wanted to see for a bit, and I think it will be super interesting. Ringer has been really good lately, coming really close to beating Dake in the Open finals, and Zahid in the last year has just won a Junior silver medal and went undefeated at NCAAs, beating Mark Hall twice. I think Ringer takes a close one here and gets another shot at Dake.

86kg:

Final X, sitting out- David Taylor
Qualified- Richard Perry, Bo Nickal, Joe Rau, Nick Reenan, Timothy Dudley, Austin Coburn, Ryan McWatters, Pat Downey

There is one fun wrestler at the weight, and his name is Patrick Downey the Third. The rest of this I think is uninteresting and random, but Richard Perry is the second best guy at 86kg and I think he wins this.

92kg:
Final X, sitting out- J’Den Cox
Qualified- Nick Heflin, Michael Macchiavello, Kenny Courts, Hayden Zillmer, Enock Francois, Deron Winn, Nikko Reyes, Timmy McCall, Cody Walters

Another weight I don’t really care about outside of Nick Heflin, who will rather throw ya then know ya. Courts looked good at the Farrell, but not so much at the Open, so I’m skeptical of him. Wonder if Zillmer actually takes this weight- wouldn’t be surprised, I think it’s him or Heflin.

97kg:
Final X, sitting out- Kyle Snyder
Finals WTT, sitting out- Austin Schafer
Qualified- Blaize Cabell, Ty Walz, Kyven Gadson, Nathan Burak, Ben Honis, Ross Larson, Braden Atwood.

:d ang:

125kg:
Final X, sitting out- Nick Gwiazdowski
Finals WTT, sitting out- Adam Coon
Qualified- Dom Bradley, Jake Varner, Gable Steveson, Tony Nelson, Tanner Hall, Mike Kosoy

I would like to see Gable Steveson wrestle anyone at this weight outside of Mikey Kosoy, especially Tony Nelson or Jake Varner. I really want to see Jake Varner wrestle Dom Bradley, and I think Varner gets another shot at Coon, where I think Coon beats Varner with rest and gets a shot at Gwiz.

First round matchups that are interesting:

57kg: Terao-Richards is a nice clash of styles.
61kg: Gross-Graff, winner gets Nahshon
86kg: Lol Pat Downey-Joe Rau. Someone will get thrown
125kg: Gable-Tanner Hall. Two guys with Junior world medals.

No throws at 86, but not for lack of effort.

Gable Steveson at 17 years of age TF'ed his way thru the Jr Trials to no one's surprise. This is his backup plan in case he doesn't make the Sr Team. In the Sr Trials he TF'ed AA Tanner Hall (like he did a few weeks ago at the Open), and beat Dom Bradley (like he did a few weeks ago at the Open). Bradley is a 29 year old 2x Open champ, 2x Pan Am champ who was ranked #19 in the World until Gable beat him in the Open. Next he goes against 2x NCAA champ Tony Nelson. He has what seems like insurmountable odds going against Nelson, but I never thought he'd beat Hall or Bradley once, much less twice in a row (Open and WTT). So pay no attention to what I think. If he gets by Nelson, then he gets Coon, who TF'ed Steveson in the Open. Then the winner gets Gwiz in Final X. I don't know how Steveson is going to do in these upcoming bouts, but he is special, and only 17 years old. It won't be long before he is the standard bearer at 125kg for USA.

Steveson just lost 4-4 criteria to Nelson so his Sr bid is over this year but he wonít be denied for long

The future looks bright for Team USA

So many thoughts:

- The way Daton Fix wrestled today, not only can he beat Thomas Gilman, he may be the favorite against Thomas Gilman.

- So anybody else done the transitive property with Zahid-Ringer-Dake yet? Ringer and Dake was a 5-5 match a month ago, and Zahid just beat Ringer twice (and it wasn't close). I'm not saying, but I may be saying, Zahid has a shot.

- 125kg is weird to me. I think Gwiz is our best shot at a medal, but I don't think he can beat Akgul (Turkey) or Petriashvili (Georgia) because he isn't big enough. Coon is decently bigger, but doesn't have the leg attacks needed to be a medal threat. Almost like Gwiz's ceiling is higher but he can't win gold, where I think Coon on his best day may be able to.

- Holy Nick Reenan. Beats Rau and Perry (twice!) to get his shot at DT. Great tourney for the college kid. And in news nobody but myself cares about, is the 11th guy to be eligible for an Olympic redshirt in the 2019-2020 season.

Fix is a beast and I don't know if Spencer Lee could beat him, but would love to see that match. Those two are definitely the future of 57kg for Team USA.

I become more impressed with Zahid every time I see him. Dake's defense is almost impenetrable, but Zahid's offense is almost unstoppable. Maybe Dake wins this time, although I wouldn't bet on it. And, like Lee and Fix, the future for Team USA at 79kg is Zahid.

Everything you said is accurate except for your Dom Bradley statement. He actually lost to Dom Bradley at the Open for the 3rd.

Correct; that is why Gable entered the Junior WTT. By not placing in the top 3 at Senior US Open, Gable was not eligible to request a special wrestle-off for the Junior spot.
