WWE is known to sign some of the best amateur wrestlers in America. Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar are prime example of the conglomerate snagging top-level competitors in the past. Now they are looking for more.

WWE’s efforts to sign the best amateur wrestlers in the country will bring them to Bout at the Ballpark this Saturday, February 12. The event will emanate from Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

“The best wrestlers in the world and perhaps even future WWE Superstars will be on display when the Bout at the Ballpark heads to Arlington, Texas this Saturday,” WWE said in a statement.

“A unique wrestling showcase featuring the top teams in both NCAA and international competition has been scheduled for Globe Life Field on Saturday, February 12, 2022.


“Bout at the Ballpark which will include dual matches between Oklahoma State University, the University of Iowa and the United States senior national team and a team of International All-Stars, and a major women’s international freestyle dual meet and a featured international Greco-Roman bout between the United States and Mongolia. Oklahoma State wrestling is the home of defending 197 lbs. NCAA champion and member of WWE’s Next In Line inaugural class, AJ Ferrari.”

The company has already signed Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson. The 21-year-old had the privilege of training with Brock Lesnar at the University of Minnesota in the past.
