Tournaments - Journeymen/MyHouse World Classic
2019 Journeymen/MyHouse World Classic
EVENT PHILOSOPHY: The World comes to us! That’s what is being created. Hot off our Journeymen Fall Classic, one of the preeminent pre-season tournaments in the USA, we’ve created a spring freestyle version for the wrestling community. The event that everyone wants to see! The best of the best from across the world, squaring off in a round-robin format. We expect competitors from all across the United States of America and several traditional wrestling countries to participate.
Best of the Best: This is a true battleground for wrestlers across the country and the world for that matter. Six-, eight or 12-man round-robin brackets with all decorated and accomplished opponents (three to four matches for each wrestler). World, National, State or New England place finishers, followed by state qualifiers, get preference.
Not a world beater, but like freestyle? Don’t worry, we pair competitors with like skill levels.
