Geno Petriashvili (from Georgia) of Easypipe defeated American wrestler Nick Gwiazdowski 6-5 to name the Iranian team as the winner of the tournament.

Ten foreign teams in addition to three local teams attended the competition at Azadi Sports Complex, IRNA reported.

Titan Mercury beat the Mongolian team Khimori 9-1 to enter the finals. On the other side, Easypipe defeated another Iranian team, the Sari Stars 6-4 to pave the way into the finals.

Sari Stars finished third by defeating Khimori 9-1.

In a strange development, Bimeh Razi team, the title holder for two series of the games, could not make it to the final. The team had hired several famed international wrestlers such as Russian Abdulrashid Sadulaev, 2016 Rio Olympics gold winner and Aniuar Geduev, 2016 Rio Olympics silver winner, also from Russia.

Despite having all the Olympian stars, the team was defeated by Easypipe 6-4 in the group-stage matches.
