On Wednesday night, fans of wrestling will have an opportunity to watch some of the best athletes in the world on NBCSN. The wrestlers will be competing in Times Square in New York, which marks the third straight year that wrestling has come to New York City. The event is named “Beat the Streets: Team USA vs. The World.”
No, this isn’t your fake WWE stuff, this is world class wrestlers who compete on the international level.
This year, 11 top American international wrestling stars will be taking on a team of all-stars from around the world.
Headlining Team USA is Olympic champion Jordan Burroughs, while David Taylor of Penn State and Brent Metcalf, who wrestled for Iowa, join the team as former Hodge Winners — which is an award handed out to the top wrestler in college.
Jason Knapp will provide play-by-play coverage, while former Olympic champ Rulon Gardner adds color commentary and Chris Mannix brings interviews with the athlete.
Along with airing on NBCSN, the event will be available to stream live online with NBC Sports Live Extra beginning at 10:30 p.m. ET.
