It is simple. You can’t expect me to cheer for the country that keeps its most dedicated wrestlers bankrupt and thinks folkstyle is the greatest thing ever invented.
I like wrestling but with the way my body chose to grow mostly in my 20s I was not cut out to be a very competitive wrestler in my 20s. Even Russians would give up on me. Mahov won HWT title at 20 years old. When I was 20 I weighed half my weight now.
I would cheer for USA if it had the approach to wrestling that I liked. Its nothing against the country itself. I was taught one way to live half of my life and now I am hearing all the different ideals here in America. Hence my patriotism for either country is dead and will never exist. Russian approach to wrestling is the purest form of a wrestling system I see and THAT IS WHY I cheer for them.
