    2023 Final X: Men's Freestyle Preview and Predictions

    It’s almost here! We’re only a few days away from the best domestic event of the year during the freestyle and Greco-Roman season, Final X. For the first time since it was established in 2018, will all three styles be held at the same location on one day. Saturday’s winners will go on to Belgrade, Serbia in September to represent the United States at the 2023 World Championships.

    We’ll start off our three previews by looking at the Senior men’s freestyle matchups. As has been the case for the last eight years or so, we have the potential to have an incredible team. The 2022 squad came home with medals in eight of ten weight classes and all of those medalists return (though two will wrestle head-to-head) along with some very capable challengers. However things shake out at 61 and 92 kgs, we will have a first-time representative at those weights, but any of the possible winners should fare well at the World Championships.

    Before we get ahead of ourselves and look at Belgrade, we have a preview of the action in the ten weight classes, with information about each wrestler and their previous head-to-head matchups, if any.
