So the IOC has decided to remove wrestling from their list of 25 "core sports".

i can not believe they're taking what is most likely the very first olympic sport out of this competition. i feel for the guys who have been training for years with a dream of competing in the olympics.

Even if they add BJJ or MMA ( one can hope) i still feel like wrestling should ALWAYS be there

this is a travesty. at least they kept woman's volleyball. but seriously, i dont know how this happened. was wrestling doing that bad in viewing numbers.

Incredibly saddened by this. Might be the worst news I have heard in a while.
