Came down to Gwiz match. He lost a tough one.

Dake kicked ass the whole tourney. Anyone have thoughts on the guys he faced?

That ankle pick to leg lace that Dake hit in the finals was sweet.

Dont' have box scores and started late.

 

Nazar won his match

Dake tech

DT 3-1 over a tough Iranian

Heflin lost by a couple, have no idea what happened in that match.  It was being stopped by the ref of challenged the whole time.

Synder tech over the guy Sad beat in the Russian finals.  Seriously the biggest 97kilo guy ever

Gwiz loses 6-5 to the world champ.

Very upsetting to see a team with the proud and noble history of Titan Mercury lose to Easy Pipe. Cletus, this one hurts.

How good is the guy that beat Gilman?  He beat a silver medalist from India earlier right?

Anyone score a point on Dake I keep seeing zeros next to box scores. Has always been special!

Expect big things.

That was insane, the ref was terrible.  Stopped it so fast every time Heflin had a front head or chest wrap.  I thought Royce Alger might get arrested!

Thought the same thing, his legs were gigantic and he had like 6 inches on Snyder

 

To be fair, that statement is true of Royce Alger on most days. Not just specifically today.

Well, I thought most of our guys did really well, I think Gilman had a great tourney, and even though he dropped his last match, it was pretty tight. I think he will learn from this and build upon it.
Nazar, also had a great tourney, he was up a weight and ran the table, good for him.
Dake, he was like a little terminator, he got in and went right to work, and piled up the points. I believe he went unscored upon. I'm pretty stoked to see what he can do here at this weight.
DT, was also on the winning side of things, and I think he should be able to build on this.
Heflin, I'm not sure what kind of international experience he has, but he looked pretty comfortable out there, I was impressed, and I think if he wrestles that guy in the finals again, he will prevail.
Capt. America was his typical self, although he did give up a couple of takedowns in his early matches, his constant pressure wore everyone down. I am glad to see that he did get a couple of trap arm guts, hopefully he can continue to develop his ability to turn people.
Gwiz looks really good, I know he lost in the finals but I think this tourney shows that he is getting better, and I think this was a positive sign going forward.
All in all, I'm glad that all of the guys got the chance to experience this, and they are better wrestles for it.

My only question, and call it sour grapes or whatever you want to call it, is do these "club teams" with all of these international studs really compete as a club?

 

Easy Pipe is an Iranian club with the following athletes:

Easy Pipe was represented by 2017 World champion Geno Petriashvilli of Georgia at heavyweight

Next up, Easy Pipe’s Vladimir Khinchegashvili, a 2016 Olympic champion and 2015 World champion for Georgia

Vladislav Baitsaev of Russia, a Russian National runner-up and past Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix champion

 

Do these guys train in Iran?  All of he USA guys train do.

It's a club, they can get who ever is willing to compete for them.  They don't have to compete in Iran in order to be eligible.   They were looking to get  Burroughs for this.   

 

 

Great Job Titan Mercury with another finals appearance.

Reading the initial comments it sounded like Snyder had a serious match then check the results and he won by tech. Dake being awesome is a compliment towards JB.

I’ve never seen him do that before and am 99% sure he has never hit that in competition before. Good to see that Dake is still improving and adding to his skills. Very impressive showing.

Where is Gwiz training? I could not believe that he is right there and is continually improving. He hung with a very athletic big heavyweight champ! He was teched by Gino 6 months ago or was that Akgul? Snyder beating the Russian #1 guy at 213 with utter ease-P4P best in the stinkin world! Dake world champ! Taylor maybe. Our team will be favorites to win it again in 2018!

Akgul.  I think he did wrestle Geno once and get teched though.  Maybe at the world cup last year?

Well, even though Titan Mercury didn't win the entire thing, it was a great team effort, and a congrats to the Titan Mercury Wrestling Club. The success of the team and our guys, has me looking forward with anticipation to seeing our guys compete again. I think this success helps energize USA Wrestling, it's wrestlers, and the fans. Lastly, I think the guys got five pretty high quality matches, which has to be very beneficial for them going forward into 2018.
