World Picks Time!

So we are just mere days away from the World Championships in Las Vegas. Team USA has historically taken advantage of home mats. It's tough to keep a grasp on all the wrestlers in the USA let alone the world, but we will give it our best shot. Well, I will give it my best shot....Kevin can't get over his homer status. 

I also invited the Wrestling Nomad to share his picks with us. He follows international wrestling as much as anyone so I was interested to see his picks and thought I'd share them Follow him on twitter @wrestlingnomad

Key: TB (Tommy), KC (Kevin Claunch), Wrestling Nomad (WN)



Editor's note: Kevin just decided to pick USA for all Greco weight classes.
