Congratulations to all the wrestlers below, each of whom went home with gold! We hope your grappler was among them, but be aware that the competition was brutal, so even if you didn't claim a title this year, give yourself a pat on the back for providing the fans in your state with a show they won't soon forget. You forced the champions to trade their blood, sweat, and tears for those $100,000 prizes.
