NWCA All Star Classic; You Decide
By Wade Schalles
There will be 10 matches contested November 2nd on the campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. We’d like to know what match-ups you’d find interesting. Which ones would you drive 2 hours to see?
Below are listed several possible pairings. There could certainly be more given the level of talent in America’s collegiate wrestling rooms, but we only have room for 10.
You may select the same person to wrestle twice. Why not put the best of the best on the mat for more than seven minutes? Give each athlete their NCAA mandated 45 minute rest and throw them out for a second go-around. This is a goldmine opportunity for the fans who get to watch their favorite wrestlers compete a second time and an opportunity for the athletes to achieve a level of stardom not previous available to them.
