Flo Predicts Final X - Lincoln

null

Tomorrow afternoon, the world will see Final X for the first time. At the Devaney Center in Lincoln, NE, 14 of the best athletes in the country will do battle for the right to represent America at the 2018 World Championships.

Like we always do at this time, the FloWrestling staff will make predictions. Love them or hate them, feel free to praise or ridicule us. Either way, you're going to have some fun.

WATCH FINAL X LIVE ON FLO

Where: Lincoln, NE | When: Saturday, June 9

It's pretty simple. The four men's and three women's matches will be wrestled in a best-of-three format. So the first round will go through all seven matches, then the second round, and, if necessary, a third and deciding round. That's no different than the World Team Trials format for the last few decades.

Before we get to the picks, here is a bevy of Final X Lincoln content for you to consume. Or breeze right past it. Your choice.

For about a decade, the words “Penn State” and “underdog” didn’t belong in the same sentence — maybe not even the same page. Cael Sanderson’s squad brought the crown home to State College eight times since the inception of the last decade, with only Iowa (2010) and Ohio State (2015) disrupting their reign of terror.
