Yeah I missed Saturday completely.   

Fix was supposed to be the new guy.   He seems to be erratic but near or at the top always, but not consistent.   His high jump coming onto the mat like he's the best there's ever been is hopefully done. 

Zain over Oliver?   I would have called this.   Oliver just isn't consistent enough to pull out consecutive wins consistently. 

J'Den over Nate?   I seem to remember that J'Den was really mad and swore he was the best and would prove it and he would be the guy from now on.   He deserved it.   Well, it took him 3 matches to take the WCs at 92 . Hardly an endorsement really.  He did shut Nate down in the 3rd match, but he should have shut him out in the first 2 matches.  He is not the man.   I think he is really good.   But he lost to Snyder, he came close to not making the WT on Saturday.   

Snyder and Gilman - Expected results for two top wrestlers in the world. 

I think all 5 deserved their wins and am glad they are going to WCs. 

Predictions:

Winners:  Dake, Burroughs, and Taylor.

I think Yianni wins the spot, and I think Gwiz wins the spot.   Yianni not always  consistent  here but I think he wins.  But would not be surprised Evan winning.   Nick has been very consistent over the years with the only exception the Oly champ.  Nick wins.   I will be paying attention this weekend.

Zilmer over Gwiz is a surprise.   He won the 3rd bout 5-5, great effort for the comeback from 5-0.
