Former NC State wrestling great Nick Gwiazdowski is once again competing for a spot on the U.S. Olympic wrestling team. The two-time NCAA champ will face former Minnesota Golden Gopher Gable Steveson (good rasslin’ name there) in the finals for the 125kg weight class.

The best two-out-of-three match will determine who gets to represent the United States in Tokyo this summer. Gwiazdowski and Steveson have met three times before, with Gwiz taking two of three, though Steveson won their most recent match.

You can catch the finals of the Olympic wrestling trials on the NBC Sports Network beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday night.
