He's the real deal. I saw him live at the Ironman and he was breaking really good wrestlers. He broke every kid he wrestled except for his finals match. Conner Schram from PA just wanted to get the hell off the mat and his semis opponent was seriously overwhelmed.paver1surf1 wrote:How good is Aaron Pico? He just basically walked through the field at the Junior Nationals including crushing his finals opponent who was an NCAA qualifier. The kid just finished his freshman year of high school.

Also, anyone know how old Pico is? (I'm not trying to troll, I'm just curious)
