The Final X series will determine the 2019 U.S. Senior World Teams in all three Olympic disciplines, and is held in two different locations and dates in June.

The Team Selection procedures for the U.S. World Teams allow for 2018 Senior World medalists to advance directly to Final X at the weight class where he/she won a medal in 2018. 2018 World medalists must declare, in writing, their intent to accept the automatic berth into by 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time on May 1. Snyder has met this requirement and accepted his qualification.

In Final X, the top two wrestlers in each World Championships weight class will compete in a best-of-three series, with winners earning spots on the U.S. Senior World Team to compete at the 2019 Senior World Championships in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan, September 14-22, 2019.
