The U.S. Open is set for May 7-9 in Las Vegas and like clockwork, there's some new rules we have to get acquainted with.
U.S. Wrestling Officials Association President Rick Tucci becomes the first guest to make multiple appearances on the Short Time Wrestling Podcast as Tucci will explain the new Greco-Roman rules passed on April 30 by United World Wrestling.
This interview was initially conducted prior to that announcement and much of the discussion centers around how USA Wrestling was to implement the rules at the University level and below because United World Wrestling wasn't going to implement them with the Senior level athletes until a later time.
Then that changed. We made sense (in some ways) of all of it and Tucci will tell us his thoughts and the rationale behind the changes on Episode 163 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast.
