Also of note is Kyle has competed way more so that partially skews the data. I believe Snyder's complete record is 131-16 and J'den's is 65-14. Snyder is 9-6 against world/Olympic champions and 21-4 against other world/olympic medalists. J'den is 5-5 against champs and 11-5 against other medalists. 

As already mentioned, J'den has been much better of late and is on a 22 match win streak. In that streak he has: 6 wins against World/Olympic Medalists, 7 techs, 14 shut-outs and has outscored his opponents 153-14.

This could be all pushouts for Snyder or Cox or it could be one of those matches Snyder slips and goes down big early due to a mistake and exposure and has to come back or it could be one where he just gets to his single and gets him down a few times.  I really don't know how this is going to go.

Citing 92kg results as reasoning for Cox being SOOO much better is ignorant at best.  He beat on 92 kegger guys who couldn't crack their lineups at 86 or 97.  He barely beat Salas this last time, when Snyder has shown to be clearly better every single time.

Nickal has already proven to be MUCH better than Moore, Macchiavello, and Zillmer, the 3, 4, and 5 domestically ranked 97kg guys.
If Snyder went 125 for hypothetical, then NLWC has no better option at 97 than Nickal.
lol.

Saduleav, Mohammedi have proven to much better than Snyder and Nickal.

If you want to be the best, that is your competition. Not Zillmer. Moore, Nickal, or Macchyivello sp,)

We saw what Nickal looked like agsinst Cox at 92. It wasn't a good look for Bo.

Okay.   When and where did Zillmer, Moore, and Macchiavello perform better internationally?  Nickal's 92kg U23 GOLD medal is better than any of them have done.

It's going to be a great match up, just as it's always been a great match between these two! I think Cox has the momentum and confidence going in. Flo reposted a clip of them training  together and I feel like it's going to be a clash of styles. Snyder's heavy forward pressure snap down centered offense vs Cox loose movement but always somehow in a good wrestling position defense. Whoever wins I think it goes 3 matches. I'm only going with Cox because I think he's developed that x factor that is going to throw Snyder off. I feel like Cox will win because of some defensive reattacks or short offense.

I thought Karimi was the best guy he beat. He was an 86kg guy. Why did he move up ?

To be fair, U23 Gold doesn’t mean much. It depends on your competition. Some weights some years are stacked, but often times it isn’t. Even moreso for non Olympic weights.

I would imagine if it goes 3, Snyder wins. He is significantly bigger than jden and will get Jden tired I think. That’s a lot of power to deal with for  18 minutes

I understand and get that, however what has any of the other three aforementioned gentlemen done to say they're better against the world at 97, when results at 92 (which all three competed at for the majority of this last cycle) all point to Nickal being not only better, but substantially better.

Significantly bigger is a stretch. Kyle doesn't look much bigger here to me if at all. Aside from the early snapdown it looks like jden was horsing kyle around. Not ragdolling him or anything but he seems to have an easier time moving kyle around. But yes we still have to see how he deals with kyles constant pressure.

He lost to Yazdani one time (their only match) in the trials for 2017 worlds and then went up as they introduced 92kg the next year. I believe the score was 5-0 in that match. It wasn't a situation where he was stuck behind him for years or anything, but i'm pretty sure that would have happened if he had stayed at 86. While Karimi is a guy who was forced out of his weight due to the presence of another wrestler and not a weight issue, it is still a very impressive win for Cox. Karimi destroyed Sharifov and Russia's wrestler in 2018 worlds before losing to Cox and was very in form in 2019 also.

Can’t forget the team needs to be decided by the world qualifier, with enough time for the winning athletes to recover and prepare for it. 

USA 97kg qualified for 2021 worlds when Snyder won bronze at 2019 worlds and 2020 Olympics were postponed to 2021.

Hey thanks. I totally forgot about Yazdani. Of course. That makes sense and Yazdani definitely is the better wrestler.

Honestly I hope Snyder wins.  Snyder isn't making 92 for Worlds a few months later.  Does Nickal come up and take the spot, then?

If Cox wins 97 and medals then the 97kg spot is his for worlds; or he can go back to 92 and placed into the WTT semi; or he can just skip worlds. I wouldn't be surprised to see medalists skip worlds due to the 15 week turnaround. That's short time for training, peaking, competing, recovering, training, peaking, tapering, competing. Could see some guys bump up too, who knows?

Snyder probably hasn't been able to make 92 since his frosh year. He missed weight the first time at Final X in 2019 and is an avid 10 mile runner before all his transatlantic flights, just like the rest of us.

Nickal slots in wherever he thinks someone is not competing: Taylor skips 86 @ worlds, Cox skips 92, or Snyder + Cox skips 97. Tough being a bridesmaid when you may genuinely be the 2nd best at any of those weights but you're blocked by someone world-champ caliber
