Social media is a tough place to be these days, so while I try to stay off of it when I’m not working, I also find that social media has the ability to bring a smile to our faces even in the toughest times.
I decided to compile a list of my 10 favorite social media posts by/about some of the US men’s freestyle wrestlers from the last seven days.
James Green (@whoisjamesg) – Twitter
James Green wrapped up his time training at Nebraska, where he spent most of the last decade. He’s beginning his new chapter, heading to the Southeast RTC in Blacksburg, Va.

I visualised my goal as Olympic champion and then used mindfulness and motivation to help achieve it. Go to the Olympic Channel to enter the #OlympicStateOfMind to #ChaseYourDream. Link in bio. ▪️ #TeamBridgestone @bridgestonetires @OlympicChannel @usawrestling @unitedworldwrestling
Jordan Burroughs shared this video from Bridgestone, one of his major sponsors for the Tokyo Olympics. Really fun and creative video!
David Taylor (@magicman_psu) - Twitter
After his match with Myles Martin last weekend, 2018 World champion David Taylor said he wanted his next match to be against World and Olympic champion Abdulrashid Sadulaev of Russia.
J’den Cox (@MATrix_8692) - Twitter
J’den Cox had something to say about Taylor’s tweet. Not totally sure if he wants first dibs on Sadulaev or Taylor, but either way, I’m here for it!

One of the most talented photographers in wrestling, Tony Rotundo posted his favorite shots from the Dake vs. Chamizo match last week.
Nick Gwiazdowski (@ngwizzz) - Instagram
This is just overall a really cool picture with Nick Gwiazdowski’s garage gym as the setting. This photo also was a reminder that wrestling is on its way back, slowly but surely.
Gable Steveson (@GSteveson) - Twitter
Lots of mystery with this one, but I loved Gable Steveson’s approach with sharing this screenshot. Who do you think he wants to wrestle?
BJ Futrell (@Back2TheFutrell) – Twitter
Love seeing big news coming from former wrestlers that have moved onto the next stage in their life! Congrats to BJ Futrell on his new position with Beat the Streets Philly.

This one isn’t an exclusively men’s freestyle post, but it’s definitely worth being in the top-10 for the week. UWW’s video team is sooo good at putting these videos together!
