WrestleStat Rankings | Week 12 2020

Now that the tournament portion of the season is basically done, most wrestlers have plenty of matches on their resume which makes their WrestleStat ranking become more accurate. Checking the rankings this week kind of shows that as we are starting to see less, and smaller movements in the rankings.

Having said that, our big movers this week are a little harder to choose from as there are lots of wrestlers that moved up around the same amount….but here’s our favorite:

At 184, Aaron Brooks of Penn State moved up 13 spots to finish at #9. He’s undefeated on the season with his best win being over #15 Chris Weiler.
