kyle dake j'den cox.png

The rosters for all six teams are set ahead of the FloWresling: 2020 RTC Cup Pres. by TMWC, and they are stacked. All-in-all competitors accolades total an Olympic medal, four World titles, nine World medals, 10 age level World titles, over 20 age level World medals, 19 NCAA titles, and almost 100 hundred All-American finishes. Not bad especially considering only the six Olympic weights are being contested and a lot of competitors are still in college.
