Would more former HS wrestlers who understand the sport and don't watch it (this is the vast majority of ex-wrestlers), be more likely to watch a dual meet for the National Championship or a Tournament, where the team is almost always decided before the finals. It is easy to pick one of two teams to root for or against in a dual format. I have never bothered to understand tournament soring because no team that I ever was on or rooted for has been in a title hunt at a tournament.
A small aside, if ESPN/NCAA wants to attract more viewers to the current NCAA championships they need to move away from the first weekend of March Madness, where half of America is following their brackets. Similar programming logic will put the dual meet championship on Super Bowl Sunday.
