I kinda miss those Dake v Taylor days.  It was never a good outcome for Taylor, but they were good for about two weeks of pre-bout chatter.

Just for you Ryou,

Taylor wins any day of the week against Dake, that snivelly wrestler.  Taylor would have beaten Dake before but he had help from the refs.  He wins all the fantasy matches.  Too bad Dake ran away from him.

That W is still on his bucket list.  I'm sure, before their careers are over, there will be one more bout. Even if Taylor has to drop to make it happen.

Dake is like a worm in his skull.   I don't think Taylor will ever beat him.  He had every opportunity to do so and failed every time.  But then again, Dake has had his opportunities against Burroughs and Cox and couldn't get it done.  Taylor and Dake are among our best wrestlers and because of timing, they have both been denied.  Our team is pretty strong right now.

Dake is a better athlete.

LOL!! Taylor got the help and he still couldn't win. Very glad they were able to separate. Makes for a great team.

Haters gonna hate! I really like both of them but I'd have to take Dake in this one.

It's tough to work so hard and still be #2 all the time.  It must be super frustrating.

I dunno, Taylor is wrestling with an entirely different attitude since he's gone grizzly.

I'm looking for big things out of Reenan for next season. This experience is making him a better wrestler.

Is it a done deal that there will be 10 different weight classes at the Olympics in 2020 and they will be these same 10 as the Worlds this year?

No, in fact all signs point to there being just 6 weight classes per style in 2020. Expect a non-Olympic weight World Championships too, but still a tough call for a lot of wrestlers that year.
