NEW YORK- The U.S. is hosting Iran and Russia in a wrestling exhibition next month in New York City in Grand Central Terminal. Iran hasn't wrestled in the U.S. since the 2003 championships. The U.S. and Russia will square off under experimental rules in response to the International Olympic Committee's recent recommendation that the sport be removed from the Olympic program. Iran will face the U.S. under current freestyle rules. The exhibition is May 15 and is dubbed "The Rumble On The Rails."
