Anthony Ashnault vs Luke Pletcher

New Jersey royalty vs the Pride of Pittsburgh. Pletcher has some unfinished business after walking into this year's NCAA championships as the one seed and not getting the opportunity to claim a national title. Ashnault came off his own NCAA title and promptly made the World Team Trials finals, but suffered a devastating knee injury. Now back and healthier than ever, Shnaulty wants to Mob all over Pletchdawg like he did three times in the 2017 season, when the new Pitt assistant was just a freshman.
