The first day of the men’s freestyle competition at the World Championships from Budapest, Hungary will take place on Saturday, October 20th. Wrestlers at the 61kg, 74 kg, 86 kg, and 125 kg weight classes will begin their tournaments and wrestle up until the finals. Sunday, the repechage and finals will take place at these weight classes. With the addition of two new weight classes, the US team is looking even more loaded than the 2017 team which captured the first world team title since 1995.

Below are the notable wrestlers to watch and predictions for the four weights that will start on Saturday. The actual draw for each weight class will take place the day before, so we are unsure of the exact bracketing at this time, just the top four seeds.
