After what was a thoroughly exciting weekend of high school wrestling for the PIAA and District 7 in particular, there were two additional developments from Monday, regarding future events, that should leave wrestling fans in the Keystone State very excited.
With respect to the Pittsburgh Wrestling Club, The Pittsburgh WC will host its PWC2 card on Tuesday, January 26, starting at 6:00 p.m. live on Rokfin. The card will feature five interesting Senior-level bouts, including a women’s freestyle match, and a strong card of seven youth match-ups as well.
Tomorrow, @Pittsburgh_WC will be putting on another fantastic event!
The card will not only have a solid slate of Senior bouts, but also a fantastic youth card as well.

Equally noteworthy, the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic local organizing committee announced the 47th Annual competition will be held on Friday, April 2, 2021.
The date of the event was changed due to the PIAA Team Championships being rescheduled to occur after the individual championships.
The Wrestling Classic – known as “The Rose Bowl of Wrestling” – is the most prestigious high school all-star wrestling meet in the United States because it attracts the very best high school seniors in the country. The preliminary meet pits the best wrestlers from Western Pennsylvania, or WPIAL, against the Maryland All-Stars. The feature match showcases the best-of-the-best high school wrestlers from across the United States challenging the reigning Pennsylvania state champs.
The committee will be finalizing other decisions in the weeks ahead based on circumstances, including the specific time of each dual meet competition and venue. Due to COIVD related restrictions, the venue and overall safety precautions, tickets are not currently on sale.
More information on the time, venue and tickets sales, and the USA All-Star Team line-up will be announced as these details are finalized.
FloWrestling will broadcast the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic live for the ninth consecutive year.
