The Ironman at Walsh Jesuit High School in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio is regarded as one of the top high school sporting events in the nation. Next up on the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, we'll talk with Corey Haddad, the Ironman's General Manager about the field, his background and what fans can expect to see in 2017.

A native of the Lehigh Valley, Haddad's been in and around wrestling since middle school and has done work for Flowrestling and Amateur Wrestling News prior to his role with the Ironman. Fans can watch live on this weekend and follow the event's brackets at
