NEW YORK — The United States is going to host Iran and Russia in a wrestling exhibition in New York City next month.

USA Wrestling says Thursday that the Iranians and Russians will face off against the Americans in Grand Central Terminal on May 15.

The event has been dubbed “The Rumble On The Rails.” It’s the fourth straight year that a major international exhibition has been held in New York.

The U.S. and Russians will wrestle under experimental rules in response to the IOC’s recent recommendation that the sport be removed from the 2020 Olympic program.

Iran hasn’t wrestled in the U.S. since the 2003 world championships. They will face the Americans under current freestyle discipline rules.
