MatScouts LLC, led by Willie Saylor, to acquire InterMat


MINNEAPOLIS -- Rev Wrestling Corp. has signed a definitive agreement to sell InterMat (InterMatWrestle.com), one of the nation's leading wrestling content websites, to MatScouts LLC. The sale will be officially completed on April 1.

MatScouts LLC, based in Easton, Pennsylvania, is led by Willie Saylor. InterMat, under its new ownership, will remain a separate entity from the MatScouts channel on Rokfin.

"We are pleased to be selling InterMat to MatScouts LLC," said Rev Wrestling Corp. vice president Andrew Hipps. "Willie Saylor has been an important voice in wrestling media for several years. It will be exciting to see where Willie takes InterMat. Willie is the ideal person to lead the company because of his passion for wrestling and expertise, as well as his vision, drive and thorough understanding of the ever-evolving wrestling media landscape."

Saylor has been a prominent member of wrestling media for more than a decade. He started his career in wrestling media at The Open Mat in 2008 before joining FloWrestling in 2012, where he served as the website's senior editor.

In 2019, Saylor launched MatScouts on Rokfin, where he provides a channel focusing on wrestling scouting and recruiting. Saylor has been recognized as the nation's top wrestling journalist by multiple wrestling media outlets throughout his career, receiving the honor in 2012 from the National Wrestling Media Association and in 2016 from WIN Magazine.

"InterMat has been a keystone of national and international wrestling journalism for decades," Saylor said. "The opportunity to sustain its excellence and increase the brand and products is something I once could have only dreamed of. The plan is to keep MatScouts a separate entity for the hardcore recruiting audience and have InterMat serve as the hub for news and editorial wrestling content worldwide. It is with great pride and responsibility that I embark on making InterMat the voice of the sport."

InterMat was launched in 1995 by Tom Owens, becoming the first independent website dedicated to covering amateur wrestling. The website was later sold to the National Wrestling Coaches Association before Rev Wrestling Corp. acquired InterMat in April of 2009. InterMat has twice been named Outlet of the Year by the National Wrestling Media Association. The website provides wrestling news, feature stories, rankings, recruiting information and more.

Going to be sorry to see the current owners go. They've been great providers of content on here, and ONLY one of two rasslin websites who've never found my words to be so dangerous as to practick rasslin cancel culture on me.

I'll hold my hopes open for the new owner. My memories go back 20 years.

I have always enjoyed Willie Saylor's candor and wit when he was doing pod casts on FLO.
I wish you the best of luck Willie.
My recommendation for your first act is to replace Tim Foney on the Friday Mailbag. Maybe you could take it over yourself. Get back to keeping the discussions about 'Amateur Wrestling".

More advocacy for rasslin cancel culture!

The only things I advocate for are cancelling stupidity and your account. But that would be redundant.

Dear Willie, On April 2nd, please fire Foley. Get the political crap off the site. And remind him (and the Ivy League) that there were ZERO (0) positive Covid-19 tests at the NCAAs. BTW, did anyone really miss the Ivys this year? Aside from not seeing a couple good guys like Yanni and Vito, I don't think anyone really cared that the League bailed on the season. Unfortunately, they really don't appeal to the wrestling culture any more anyway...
