Yet another injury will deprive wrestling fans of a match at Who's #1. Ryan Crookham, who was slated to take on Nic Bouzakis at 132 lbs, has unfortunately suffered an injury and will not be able to recover in time to wrestle October 3rd.
Crookham and Bouzakis were not only the #1 and #2 wrestlers at 132 lbs, but the #1 and #2 wrestlers in the class of 2022, and both in the top 10 P4P as well. With Crookham taking the first match at UWW Cadets in 2018 and Bouzakis taking the second at 2019 Ironman, this grudge match was highly anticipated. These two wrestlers have separated themselves from the rest of the field at 132 and are the clear #1 and #2. There will be no replacement for Bouzakis to wrestle.
While is now the third wrestler to withdraw from Who's #1, the event will still feature 14 incredible bouts compromised of the best wrestlers from across the country. The complete event match order can be found here.
