Default IOC Cuts Wrestling From Olympics

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/olympi...9336--oly.html

So, beginning in 2020, wrestling will no longer be on the Olympic itinerary. Now, I have zero interest in wrestling apart from the later round matches in the Olympics but this is embarrassing. It has been around since the very beginning and is one of the biggest symbols of tradition for the Olympic Games.

How the hell do you keep ping pong, equestrian, shooting, etc. over one of the foundations of the Olympics. Just wow.

This is a travesty, and obviously completely based on $$$.

It is absolutely stupid. Olympics is all about sports that every countries can take part of. All you need for amateur wrestling is a big mat and proper clothing. Also, best wrestlers can be found from around the world, USA, Eastern Asian countries, Iran and other Middle Eastern countries, Central Asian countries, etc.

If they cut wrestling then Judo should be gone too. It is about the same sport with few different rules.

Oh, and about table tennis, haters should stay away. It is a real sport that some people simply ignore it because they suck and don't want to take it seriously.

WWE Hall of Famer The Iron Sheik, who competed for Iran in the 1968 Olympics and then became an assistant coach for Team USA in the 1970's, is not pleased about the International Olympic Committee's decision to remove wrestling from the Olympics starting in 2020. The Sheik told TMZ.com today:

"After 1000 years they take away the best sport in the world? This is the first time the dumb motherf**kers have no balls for they make the walking an Olympic sport."

"If I see anybody on the street that work from the IOC I swear to the Jesus I suplex them put them in camel clutch break their back make them humble."

"The #TEAMSHEIKIE respect the Olympic now they can all go f**k themselves and make the Curling Olympic sport because they all the biggest piece of no good s**t and I never watch the Olympic again. Also buy my t shirt [on my website] or go f**k yourself.”]

Well there it is...

Am I the only person who actually likes amateur wrestling? There's not a lot of entertainment in it, it's slow-pace but if you like strategy then you'll like it.

If there was a legit professional wrestling league (not the fake kind), I would follow it.

There were, and they all failed. It is very difficult to promote legit wrestling when in most people's mindset wrestling is fake.

Yeah MMA is as close as you're gonna get to a legit wrestling league. Granted a lotta people complain about the wrestlers slowing things down and creating boring fights, but you'll still see plenty of it on any given card.
