2011 USA Wrestling World Team Trials Leftovers and Complete Results

Don't call it a comeback...

The talk leading up to this past weekend's World Team Trials tournament was all about Cael Sanderson. The question of whether or not the 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist would enter the tournament kept amateur wrestling fans on the edge of their seats for weeks. The answer came this weekend, when Sanderson entered the 2011 USA Wrestling World Team Trials in Oklahoma City. Sanderson, who was also inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame on Thursday evening, added another notch to a long list of accomplishments by becoming a member of the 2011 US World Team. Expect Cael Sanderson's World Championship journey to be a major primer for the 2012 Olympics in London.

We wondered if Cael would be on the mats, and he was. But, there's another big name that wasn't present on the mats in Oklahoma City this past weekend -- Henry Cejudo. The 2008 Olympic World Medalist was absent from competition for the World Team Trials. Watch and find out why:
