So weak. There are so many worthless sports in the Olympics and the IOC decide to get rid of Wrestling. I guess these guys will be coming over to MMA sooner

Three thing immediately sprang to my mind when I heard about the Olympics seemingly dropping wrestling from the Games:

1) Hopefully this doesn't mark any further decline in primary/elementary/high school wrestling programs or university/college programs. That is, hopefully the popularity of the sport won't be too harmed by the exclusion from the Olympics.

2) Perhaps this will help move more wrestling talent into MMA sooner since the Olympics may no longer be a viable option to delay wrestlers' entry into MMA.

3) Possibly wrestling will be back in the Olympic Games eventually.

Overall, upon hearing the news:

May the wrath of Milo of Croton descend upon them quickly.

Terrible news and what a stupid decision.

The Olympics are becoming a joke. It has become so corrupted that it would be better to fire everyone and start from scratch.

This pisses me off, pretty soon they'll have break dancing in the Olympics and take weight lifting out.

Thank God. There is enough Homosexual sports at the Olympics as it is ...

Men in tight Lycra trying to urinate like a Dog, Wheel barrowing, Burying heads up their opponents ass, Swinging by the Ankles and Pretending to fly like Superman !!!

can't tell if you're being serious. Wrestling is more deserving than speedwalking or badminton
Now that I think about it you can't be serious...I mean you like MMA right?

I guess they figured since MMA is turning into wrestling why not just let them do it there. Kidding

But Seriously, this is shocking news. Hopefully they come to their senses.

but badminton stays?


Let's point the finger towards something other than badminton, okay? It's clear that synchronized swimming should be first to go. This former badminton club president would not like to see badminton go


syncro water dancing and ribbon dancing also need to go.

Lets just hope that the UFC puts on a load of events around the time of the 2020 games to stop the depression. Diving, sailing and long jump needs to go too. Mr dean, I was trying to she'd a little light hearted humour. Wrestling is a great sport and essential to mma. It seems wrestling is only one of many games dethroned from the Olympics due to health and safety of its raw persona. All the tough physical sports are being replaced with soppy family shit !!!
