    Default Questions about the OTTs

    So I noticed that some of the current world team members wrestled in the challenge tournament (Simmons and Ware) and others (Varner and Burroughs) had byes to the best of three. What was the criteria for deciding who got the byes and who had to wrestle in the tournament?

    I'm not completely sure but I do know they were both world medalists, so that might be it.

    Wasn't Simmons a medalist too?

    quinn is right, if you medaled you got a bye.

    OK that makes sense. For some reason I thought that that all world team members received a bye. Thanks for the clarification.
