Limiting the number weight classes where the majority of people fit is stupid. I saw just as many, if not more, FF at 195-hw as I did at 106. Someone needs to run thru the tournaments and count FF for this year at each weight. I think the numbers will work against the new system.
    And I found 1 that had a whopping 5 wrestlers at 126, you know, one of those bottleneck weights. You can find one of those at almost every weight if you look hard enough; they happen.

    You can do better than that. One data point doesn't mean a thing.

      Personally I don't see the "big" guys flocking to wrestling because of the weight changes. But I think you need to give it a good 5 years to see either way.
