Green, Kilgore and Rey are the only backups on the roster who are ranked #2 at their respective weight.  The backups for the other 5 weights are guys ranked #3 or worse.

 

I guess it does not matter given Burnett's comment that he plans to use the #1 guy in all matches (barring injury), but still strikes me as odd that we don't have the #2 guy there at all (or most) of the weights.

Why would the #2 guy travel and suck weight to watch their biggest rival wrestle 5x?

 

Possible Varner vs Shapirov vs Yazdani matchups... Sweet!

 

Russia clearly doesn't really care about winning world cups but I wish they'd start bringing more star studded teams?

Peyman is the kid from that Iranian youth wrestling documentary correct?  So cool to see him making it 

I just searched for this documentary but I could only find the preview.  Any idea where I could watch it/ purchase it?

When I was in high school I got to see a Soviet team that was one week after the World Cup that had some number ones. Stepan Sarkissian, and Maharbek Khadartsev were there. Fadsaev was warming up with the team but Budaev wrestled.
