On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with Teague Moore, head wrestling coach at American University and a founder of the Association of Career Wrestlers - Tour ACW.
The Tour ACW inaugural and test event, using a blend of freestyle and American folkstyle wrestling rules, is set to take place Sunday, October 20, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency - Pittsburgh International Airport in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
There will be a free, live stream of this event at Nside Wrestling.
Among the competitors in the five weight classes being contested are former NCAA Div. I national champions Frank Molinaro, Jay Borschel, and Cam Simaz, as well as numerous former All-American and experienced folkstyle and freestyle wrestlers.
The format for the competition in each weight class is a same-day, single elimination tournament. Each match will have no time limit, with the winner being determined when one wrestler scores ten points, or, of course, scores a pin. The winners in each weight class will earn $2500.
We spoke with Teague Moore by phone Sunday to preview this event.
"We're excited to see how they mix it up next Sunday, this twist in the rules that we've created with the first-to-ten," he said. "We really think that we're going to see some great head-to-head matchups, and we're excited about that."
We also spoke about how he expects this test event to unfold, what changes may have to be made in the future, the future plans for Tour ACW in 2014 and beyond, the growing list of this event's sponsors, the essential use of social media to promote wrestling, and much more.
"Our future is in the hands of the fans," he stressed.
