    2022-23 DI Wrestling All-Name Team

    In the midst of all of our season preview-type articles, we decided to take a bit of a more lighthearted look at some of our collegiate wrestlers for the 2022-23 season. Mainly, ones with really cool and perhaps unusual names.

    As someone with the last name Smith, I appreciate someone with a distinct first or last name. While being a Smith in the wrestling world is pretty cool (thanks John and family), outside of wrestling it doesn't carry the same weight and is extremely common.

    Below is a weight-by-weight look at some of the active wrestlers with the best names on the DI level. After that there are some additional categories that other names fit into as well.

    If there are some we missed, please leave them in the comments section!

    Have fun!
